Listening to the samples now. Most of it is just... awful. Just plain awful.

When Hell Comes Home sounds like it will be good, and the ballad is good. A Runaway Train might turn out OK, and the opener, but the rest... fucking hell.

I know you can't tell a lot from 30 second sound clips but the songs don't sound too promising. In fact i'm not even sure what Alice is trying to do at all anymore over these last few albums.

I think Alice gave us everything he had left with TLT, BP and DT because everything since then has been a let down. He has so much material he doesn't need to release new albums. Just release a few new itunes singles every two years and tour because it seems like he's going downhill fast creatively.

No. No no no no no. No-one should do this. Ever.

iTunes needs to die.

Also, there's still good stuff on the last three albums. Along Came A Spider is a great disc.

Just listened to the samples.

I think there could be a few standout tracks. Last Man on Earth sounds like it could've come off Lace & Whiskey.

Most of it sounds like typical new AC, which I think is completely listenable but easily forgettable.

What Baby Wants will def be the one to skip. Even 30 sec was painful.

Disco Boogie Bloodbath Fever sounded cool. I saw I'll Bite Your Face Off live last night, I enjoyed it.

The only album he released in the 60s was Pretties For You in 1969. Even if you don't like any of the albums he's done since 1980, I don't see how you can't think he hasn't wrote plenty of good to great songs since then.

I also find it baffling how any Cooper fan couldn't love The Last Temptation, Brutal Planet and Dragontown

The more I listen to the samples the more they grow on me.
