It's a decent tune from a great album. Shits all over Welcome 2 My Nightmare.

I don't understand out of all the great underplayed songs Cooper has, how Dirty Diamonds gets played as often as it does? It's not like the song is that good to being with. It's a decent tune of an awful album.
I recently saw a Cooper show on AXS tv and pretty sure that's the song his daughter joins him on stage for... So yeah, it's going nowhere if that's the case. hahaha

Needs way more Billion Dollar Babies tunes...

No chance. Dirty Diamonds and The Eyes of Alice Cooper are two albums that had a lot of potential but were ruined by Alice not using his normal voice. I first heard songs from those records on the Live At Montreaux DVD and thought they were brilliant, but when you hear them on the album, they're like totally different tracks.

I do like a few songs across those records, but they're among my least favourite Alice albums.

Wait, you're saying Dirt Diamonds is a great album? It doesn't rank higher than "piece of shit" on my list

Drangontown was the last Cooper album I enjoyed beginning to end. There are songs I like on the last four albums but overall most of his output over the last decade has been average (The Eyes, Along Came A Spider and Nightmare 2) or embarrassing bad like Dirty Diamonds. Cooper hasn't made an album that bad since Zipper Catches Skin but at least that can be forgiven because of what an extreme alcoholic he was at the time. With Dirty Diamonds there is no excuse for releasing something that bad.

Yep, definitely a great album. It's the one time on the last few discs that he tried to do a varied album with a load of different styles and actually did them all well.

None of them are as good as Brutal Planet or Dragontown, obviously, but DD is far better than both The Eyes and Nightmare 2.

Along Came A Spider gets better and better with repeated listens.

Yes. I believe Greg Allman's daughter's band is opening, at least out here it was. I don't know their name, I missed them in L.A..

Yeah but we can still dream~~

I don't think that album is awful in the grand scheme of things, but for an Alice album, reviewing the tracklist... you're right

I'm still wondering why the hell Manson doesn't pull out Overneath the Path of Misery. That song was created to be played live.
