Alice Cooper - Paranormal Album Review

Alice Cooper is back! The Master of Shock Rock...the villain, the victim, the everything macabre that has thrilled, and revolted us for years delivers his best new album in years!

There's just no substitute for quality production. Bob Ezrin has always been among the best in the business and his work on these new tracks are evident. They come alive under his vision and Alice flourishes.

The album is Paranormal and as Cooper explains, “I love that title, 'Paranormal', but it's not really a scary record. There's a couple of scary songs on it, but it's 'paranormal,' in the sense that it is other than normal.”

He and Ezrin set out to do an album without a theme in mind, just for the fun of it, and the theme emerged on its own. The songs do reflect those things that make Alice Cooper music what it is. You only need to listen once to bear witness to the twisted mental states delightfully being sung about here.

For a change Bob Ezrin brought in Larry Mullen Jr. on drums and from there added some guest work from Roger Glover and Billy Gibbons.

There's ten songs, and all are lyrically fantastic. One of the best things about this album is how deliciously interesting the songs are, and how relevant they are even now.

Most veteran rockers usually fade, they lose their way, and become nostalgia acts that still rock out live, but no longer make new music. That's never been the case with Alice Cooper. He gives us a well crafted album that can be played over and over.

His secret to ongoing success is that he does not try to be popular by today's standards, he stays true to himself, because that has always been more than enough!

"I have a world of fans out there, all over the world, and it took forty-five years to build that fan-base. So when I make records now, I make 'em for those people. I'm not trying to break a new audience. I am playing an album for an audience that's already there." - Alice Cooper

The Best Free Movie Sites To Bookmark

In this new and updated post you'll find the best new completely Free movie streaming sites on-line in 2017 to date! Sorting through the lists of sites that all claim everything is beyond daunting. It's enough to make you wanna give up and just sign with Netflix anyway.

Not to worry...I've got your back! Read on...

Internet censors and certain providers are always attempting to shut down these sorts of web-sites and as soon as they do another one appears. It's an endless game of whack a mole... if you can.

In evaluating whether a site is worthy of being bookmarked I strictly stick with those sites that do not prompt me to sign-up, or ask for any information of any kind. Sites with too many ads also get ignored here.

The average person can spend all the time in the world searching for FREE streaming web-sites that offer everything they want, but as you've probably already realized by now, there isn't just one. To enjoy a wider variety of shows, it's necessary to use multiple web-sites. With that in mind, you don't need to bookmark a long list of sites, instead I am recommending that you make a shorter list and stick with the best.

Since there are far too many sites that offer similar or the same content, I've compiled a shorter list of what is also tried and tested to be safe and quick to use without having to sign-up or register to use.

These are the Top 5 Websites to Stream New and Old Movies

Now you may be wondering, what ever happened to 123movies?

I've wondered this myself for a long time. It was the best site out there. I do not know what really happened to that domain or why. Not to worry though, the site is still live and current, it's just been re-branded and has a new name GoMovies. It's the same site with a new name and link.

Do I have to sign up or pay to watch on-line?

NO, the sites I have offered you do not require your personal information.

Should you stumble upon a site that does want you to sign up, immediately click that tab off. If you want to subscribe to something, that is entirely your prerogative, if you do, at least stick with the big name providers like Netflix, YouTube, or Amazon( hulu is a joke). If you are going to pay premium rates, it's better to stick with the premium providers.

Please keep in mind, there are numerous alternatives which do not require any personal details, but some are very dangerous they can infect your system with malware and while others have too many ads and some even lock up your whole computer. In other words, it's a jungle out there...viewer beware!

Lastly, for anyone looking to stream video content you can not ignore the fact that YouTube has the most to offer free and paid. There are a few others worth checking out, because they are quick, safe and reliable. These sites are listed below.
