The Downward Spiral
15 August 2012 | by rob_vicarySee all my reviews

Having been a huge Alice fan for many years now, it was a treat to finally get this concert film on DVD. Wow, what a difference a few years make. If you compare this to his two earlier concert films, "Welcome to My Nightmare" and "Good To See You Again, Alice Cooper", you can visibly see the toll that alcohol and the rock n' roll lifestyle had taken on this man. He looks like an emaciated corpse in this film, as opposed to the robust young man who appeared in his previous films. Setting that aside, Alice once again manages to put on a helluva show featuring many songs from his "From The Inside" album, most of which aren't even performed live anymore. Alice's appearance makes his performances even more wild and crazy looking. It's interesting to note that this was the last hurrah of the 70's classic rock Alice Cooper. As he moved into the early eighties, his music became more pop-punk and new wave influenced, until his physical breakdown in '83. Then he resurfaced in '86 as a revitalized hard-rock/metal act which is more or less the same Alice that we have today. While still capable of putting on excellent concert performances, there is something nostalgic and almost magical about his 1970's concerts. Definitely worth a look for all Cooper fans. I gave this 9 stars as there are some glitches in the video, and occasionally the sound is muddy - but even that isn't too bad for a 30 year-old concert.
