The resurgence of The Coop continues with this album, but I still think there’s plenty of filler here. “Not That Kind of Love” and “Roses on White Lace” are two of Alice’s best songs though with “Not That Kind of Love” seeing Alice in pure hair metal mode and “Roses on White Lace” featuring him at his macabre best.

“Prince of Darkness” was also on the soundtrack of the 1987 John Carpenter movie Prince of Darkness (of course). The album cover here is very odd and strikes me as something weird you’d see on a Garbage Pail Kids card. I wonder if it was done by one of the same artists?

Highlights: “Freedom”, “Not That Kind of Love”, “Prince of Darkness”, “Gail”, “Roses on White Lace”

  1. I had this on tape but I think its still missing from my CD collection, I’ll have to check. I remember being somewhat disappointed by this album when it came out but the cover was cool. Good call on the Garbage Pail Kids reference!

  2. Yeah, I don’t know… It just screams Garbage Pail Kids to me. They had all kinds of weird and freaky stuff on those cards!
