Squat Cobbler 7: Easy Action – Alice Cooper

http://media.blubrry.com/nurtureandsupport/p/www.nurtureandsupport.net/ns/SC7.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Google Play | RSSIn the second recap of Mike and Kelly’s journey through the Alice Cooper catalog, they revisit “Easy Action”.  This was less painful than “Pretties for You”, but still not the Alice they know and love (that comes next album). There are a few fun moments on “Easy Action”, particularly the first two tracks. That alone was a enough to catapult “Easy Action” to the top of both of their rankings.  It will enjoy a BRIEF stay in the top spot.

Includes a BALLAD, but he was not wearing a Travoltaesque Leisure Suit. The first song on the album is Go To Hell, which includes a Paul Lynde impression.

Surprisingly, this story isn’t really about Max, it’s about Imperator Furiosa and her attempt at redemption in the violent wasteland that the world has become. It’s hard to fangirl appropriately here without giving away some spoilers that I feel it’s best you experience for yourself, so go see it and come back here … Continue reading
