Squat Cobbler 47: Alice Cooper – Along Came a Spider (review)

“It’s your world, but it’s my street”

This week we review Alice Cooper’s 25th album “Along Came a Spider”.  Both Mike and Kelly feel this has been an underappreciated album – and possibly Alice’s best concept album execution ever.  BTW, it was the Spinal Tap song “Hell Hole” that Kelly saw similarities with in the chorus of “I’m Hungry”.  Just a little 🙂

BONUS: Here is the promotional video we mentioned in the review…

 

BONUS BONUS: Mike and Kelly’s best harmonica entries:

Wizard (Mike)

Nowadays a Woman Gotta Hit A Man (Kelly)

SMLTBCBPB (Song most likely to be covered by Pat Boone):

Mike – Wrapped In Silk
Kelly – Vengeance Is Mine
