Though many people have derided Alice’s pop metal years, I absolutely love them. Trash and this album are two of my favorite Alice albums.

Though the guiding hands of Jon Bon Jovi & Trash producer Desmond Child may be gone (Desmond did co-write “Dangerous Tonight” and “Might as Well Be on Mars” though), Alice, with his team of co-writers, manages to deliver another slick pop metal gem. There’s also another impressive lineup of guest musicians as well.

This album didn’t sell nearly as well as Trash did and didn’t have a big hit like “Poison” was, and that’s a real shame because this album might even be better than Trash. 1991 was getting to be a rough time to sell commercial metal though…

Highlights: “Hey Stoopid”, “Love’s a Loaded Gun”, “Burning Our Bed”, “Might as Well Be on Mars”, “Feed My Frankenstein”, “Little by Little”, “Die For You”

  1. ‘Hey Stoopid’ and ‘Feed My Frankenstein’ got a ton of airplay back in the day in Rhode Island so I always liked this album too. It was ’91 and commercial Hard Rock & Metal were still getting airplay as the alternative movement was taking hold. Alice got caught up in the metal meltdown with the other bands but he’s survived and is better than ever. I wish he would play something off this album live, he hasn’t since 2000 I believe.
