Squat Cobbler 28: Alice Cooper – Special Forces (review)

This week Mike and Kelly discuss Alice Cooper’s 13th album, “Special Forces”.  Grittier and tougher than its predecessor “Flush the Fashion”, Special Forces is a fun listen but seldom soars to the heights of some of the best material from Alice.

That said, check out You’re a Movie, Skeletons In My Closet, and Who Do You Think We Are… fun songs!

There was a tour to support this album (which Kelly saw) and here is pretty complete documentation of it in glorious black and white…
