SOUNDS GOOD

- Alice Cooper – Detroit Stories Leigh Morrison

As far as tributes go, Alice Cooper’s Detroit Stories is an impressive one. The 15-track album is an homage to his hometown, the city in question. But listening to it, you get the sense that this is far more than simple nostalgia, wrapped up in Cooper’s signature tones. Tracks like Our Love Will Change The World and $1000 High Heel Shoes certainly perk up the ears with an audible departure from the signature Alice Cooper sound. The entire album listens like a road trip through the journey that informed his own musical makings in the city. Fans will love what is effectivel­y a 15-track rollercoas­ter that leaves you wanting more. And you can almost see fans chanting along to the track Detroit City 2021, hands in the air. Hopefully it also won’t be too long before the album can be enjoyed live.
