Jimmy Page. Richie Blackmore. David Coverdale. So the python-toting frontman did the only sensible thing, and attempted a return to his simpler hard rock roots. Additionally, he went for the two-fer by trying to insert himself into another budding genre of the period: radio-driven hair rock. The eventual result of this process was a series of records which introduced Alice to a whole new generation of avid fans, revitalizing his career for another three decades of shocking live shows and solid rock tunes.
And while this first effort may not be as stellar as its successors, it definitely has its moments. On this album, Alice is once again accompanied by a capable and trustworthy team. His main accomplice is jack-of-all-trades Kane Roberts, who is credited with every instrument, as well as backing vocals.
Back before I knew better, I used to be in awe of Kane Roberts, wondering how someone could play so many instruments and do it all so well.
But, like I always say, what good are decent musicians without decent songs? Most of these examples can be found early in the album, with the first three songs in particular all delivering fun choruses and big riffs to jam along to.
Of the three, Give It Up probably takes precedence, but Teenage Frankenstein and the irresistible Thrill My Gorilla follow close behind, making up a trio of winners which really drag the listener into the album in a positive way.
Unfortunately, the awesomeness of those early songs causes everything that comes after to sound slightly inferior in comparison. But while there are no flat-out weak songs on here apart from maybe Life And Death Of The Partynot all of them are all that good either. As mentioned, Life And Death Of The Party is pretty average, and Trick Bag gets by solely on its huge chorus, with very little else about the song having any kind of value.
Overall, a much less interesting, but nonetheless perfectly listenable, set of songs. With its corny-yet-catchy keyboards and nice riffing, it closes out an album which, while not state-of-the-art, is perfectly adequate, and boasts intelligent lyrics to boot. In fact, storytelling has Thrill My Gorilla - Alice Cooper (2) - Constrictor (Cassette been a specialty of Mr. In conclusion, then, Constrictor is another worthy addition to the Alice canon.
While not as good as Trash or Hey Stoopidand maybe a little too cheesy for its own good, it definitely beats out what came before, as well as its immediate successor, the dull Raise Your Fist And Yell.

The production is horrible, thin and sterile and the programmed drums really blows. The rest is pretty lame. But things should get worse for Coop before it got better. Raise Your Fist And Yell was a really crappy record. Trash really saved his ass after that failure. Nailed it, Jon. I vaguely remember it. I wanted to review the album right after Constrictor, but I got sidetracked by…err…lazy. Oh, Gail. Gail is awesome. Best song on that album. Especially the latter. Prince Of Darkness is a good song as well.
Got a question for you Jon — do you know the band lineup in the Freedom video? Nice review Mike. Not that I could have told you much about it anyway, except for the songs you linked. Anyway, I would need to hear this again, but a 2. Which appears to have been a good thing.
