2017, “Radio Capital” interviews Alice Cooper and previews 2 new 'Paranormal' songs

Italian Radio Show Radio Capital interviews Alice Cooper
in English which they translate in Italian. Interview starts at around 19:10 
includes preview of 2 new songs from 'Paranormal' album. 
The title track 'Paranormal' about 27:50 and 'Genuine American Girl
around 34:38 interview closes out w/ “School’s Out”.

Interview on July 4, 2017 

EvenSpotSpeaks comments: After listening to the 2 new tracks on "Paranormal"
the first song "Paranormal" sounds pretty good sort of spooky sounding.
2nd track "Genuine American Girl" is disappointing to me.
This song includes the original band I was expecting a rocker sound
and I'm not saying like "Killer" or "Love It To Death" those days are gone
but something like "When Hell Comes Home" from W2MN but 
"Genuine American Girl" reminds me of The Beach Boys w/
Weird Al Yankovic lyrics. 
It doesn't sound like Alice Cooper past or present. It's a shame this
would be a track I would skip even w/ the original band playing on it.

PARANORMAL German Classic Rock Review translated

Came across this German review of "Paranormal"
from German's Classic Rock issue that recently came out
and here's a roughly translated through Google Translation.

Mr. Nice Guy pays tribute to the golden 70s!

Surprises are on Alice Cooper 27 Studio album PARANORMAL far more than enough. The most important - if not the most sensational - is his consistent return to the (Rock) values ​​of the 70s, when this music experienced its most colorful epoch. As if there had never been bulky and disagreeable releases such as BRUTAL PLANET (2000) or DRAGONTOWN (2000), Cooper continues to devote himself to deep melodic songs without interfering experiments. In the process, he fires psychedelic space rock from the imagination fog machine (Fireball), surprisingly funky (Dead Flies) confesses to his Deep Purple Roots (Paranormal) and ends the new album with a song to which even Pink Floyd was proud in her blood phase (The Sound Of A). Coming to the highpoints already announced in the run - up: Cooper has a lot of well - known guests with Roger Glover (Deep Purple), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and Larry Mullen Jr. (U2), as well as a bonus CD Promised reunion of the original band (feat. Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce). The best thing about PARANORMAL, however, is: There are at least twelve powerful new songs!

Alice Cooper graces the cover and includes a feature story of 10 pages
in Germany's Classic Rock July/August issue out now!

To all of Germany's Alice Cooper fans enjoy this issue. I envy you.

It make's me wonder when was the last time Alice was on the cover of
any U.S. publications. I'm not talking free or local magazines.
I'm talking cross country publications.

Muscle of Love album review by Kim Fowley

I found this old review from BOMP! issue on
waitakerewalks blogspot.
Not sure on the date but safe to say it must be 1973
when Muscle Of Love was released. Also the review written by
Kim Fowley who doesn't write kindly of the new Alice Cooper album.
