Squat Cobbler 30: Alice Cooper – Zipper Catches Skin (review)

This week Mike and Kelly discuss Alice Cooper’s 14th album, “Zipper Catches Skin”.  Twitchy, strange, different than any Alice we have heard so far – this is a flawed, but enjoyable album.

The album features Zorro, Scrooge, dead pets returning to save their master and an “On Golden Pond” reference.  So, you probably get the idea this is a tad different than other outings by Mr. Cooper.

Mike VASTLY under-rated “Zorro’s Ascent” on this album.  Uncertain?  Behold….
