    Comprehensive collection of some of the most important and unique rock songs ever assembled. As the liner notes mention, the unique style and lyrics (as well as make-up and stage antics) inspired a great deal of artists (a long list!) including one Bob Dylan (who on the Rolling Thunder Review Tour donned mascara) quoted as saying, “I think Alice Cooper is an overlooked songwriter”. In 1970 I am in Junior High (aka: Middle School) and preparing to enter High School. How perfectly timed to drop “I’m Eighteen” on us when we’re approaching that mysterious time between boy and man?! Moving forward as the years roll on questioning things and yourself (Is it My Body), relationships (Under My Wheels, Be My Lover), screaming the anthem “School’s Out” every summer. We all know the feeling of “No More Mr. Nice Guy” but to then get Donovan performing on “Million Dollar Babies” blew us all away! The very risqué “Muscle of Love” (OMG) and then “Only Women Bleed” becomes a big hit. I could go on and on… This collection, in chronological order, spans his entire career up to “Poison” is a must have but add in that it is only $5.99 and you have one helluva great deal here, thanks to Rhino and Best Buy. If you are a long time fan, of course you’ll want it and if you are new to Alice Cooper then definitely this is a great introduction. And finally, if you have never seen Alice live, DO IT! I have seen him as recently as a couple of years ago and it was awesome and worth every dime! Still an amazing stage show that is not to be missed!

    The first time I listened to Alice Cooper was thanks to my dad back in 1972 in El Salvador. Not understanding a single word in english i thought the sound of the music was just great. Now I understand the lirics not only because i am fluent in in spanish and english, but also because i am an older man who can relate his anger from both sides of the coin. I've been 18 and have seen my kids grow up and be 18. i've been through school so have my kids. I have been angry at god and church and so have my kids. I have been in love and frustrated with our leaders and so have my children. Do i need to say more?? Alice Cooper sings about life and you can see and hear how his perspective changes as you listen to his music. From anger to love and from frustration to wisdom. good music from the times when we use to listen to an lp album from begining to end on both sides and when denigrating women, prejudice, racism, profanity and bad words were not necesary to make the album worth listening to. Listen to the his short lirics so full of meaning. The compilation is great beacuse it is produced in cronological order.

    Been a fan of Alice Cooper since a child. Saw a recent AXIS show of a recent Alice Cooper concert and brought back memories that he puts on among the best shows in rock. Didn't have any of his music in my collection since Welcome to my nightmare (which I have lost) and thought I would add this CD for a long road trip. It has a collection of most of his well known and best tunes (old and newer). After listening to it, I thought to myself I had forgot how many classic great tunes he bad. The production quality varied between eras of when the tunes were recorded which was wide, but definitely a great listen and brought back many memories.. He has so many great tunes. It was definitely a value purchase and I'm hoping to see him and his band if he goes on tour again.

    When I saw this in the bins by check out I knew I had to have it. It has all the songs I remember on my mom's old tapes I found when I was a kid! The only reason I couldn't give it 5-Stars is because it was missing "Feed My Frankenstein". Which could be a copyright thing since it was done for the Wayne's World movie. But it does have "Poison" which is an underrated song. It really is one of his best. Anyway, great collection of songs for fans and casual listeners alike!

    Some Good, Some I Could Do Without

    You have the greatest hits from the Alice Cooper band then several songs from his solo career in the 70s (after Welcome to My Nightmare I don't particularly care for his stuff until Constrictor), and then "Poison". The thing is Alice changed a lot over the years so unless you're really into ALL of the 70s stuff (And even if you don't like the early 90s stuff, who doesn't like "Poison"?) you're probably better off finding a different compilation, picking specific LPs, or individually buying the MP3s.

    Our grandson loves rock & roll. He wanted an Alice Cooper t-shirt, but we couldn't find one. This is so much better then a shirt. He was thrilled to get it & is enjoying all the great hits. Alice Cooper is one of the few rockers that didn't drown in drugs & still makes great music after several decades of bygone live fast & die young performers.

    All your faves by Alice Cooper on one CD...if that's even possible! ha! Well, not a bad Cooper 'playlist' anyway, but can't touch original releases like 'School's Out' and 'Billion Dollar Babies'. It'll work for the casual fan, though.

    Have followed Alice Cooper since early teenage years.Tthis CD brings back my first concert experience. Have all the AC albums until the mid 80s, although sadly on cassette. This compilation contains many of the tracks I like to listen to (there could have been more for my ears) and none that I don't. Sound quality great. Listening to 18 NEVER gets old.
