Alice Cooper - School’s Out - Review

critics' view

The question before us is whether Alice Cooper is a threat to civilization itself or merely to our beloved rock & roll. Both parents and kids commonly see Alice as eroding the former, which they respectively deplore and celebrate. Alice is variously an actor, rocker, comic, madman and exorcist, the culmination of rock’s subversive tendencies. This is the reputation he carefully nurtures. What School’s Out confirms is what I have long suspected; that Alice’s profusion of roles are themselves self-cancelling; that as a cultural assassin he is quite harmless.
