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!

8 out of 10 rating
