Raise Your Fist And Yell Album Tracklist




Godfather of Shock (Revised) | Reviewer: Frank Newberry (guitarist of Shoveltooth) | 9/13/11

This is truly one of the best albums ever recorded by the Godfather of shock.. Alice Cooper. Over the previous few years, Alice's career had kind of fizzled out and his personal life and health had spiraled out of control due to the Icon's alcoholism. While the inclusion of "He's back (the man behind the mask)" from Alice's 1986 album "Constrictor" , in the 6th installment of the Friday the 13th Franchise "Jason lives" put the black eyed master of disaster back on the map, a lot of us fans were anxious to see what would come next from Alice's arsenal of the grotesque. What we got was without a doubt Alice's most brutal and darkest album. Featuring the Crushing yet melodically genius guitar work of Kane Roberts, it was also one of Alice's most musically ambitious projects and the lyrical content was simply stellar. For a while Alice's work had taken on a quirky and campy tongue in cheek kind of vibe. This album however returned Alice to the Nightmarish, Dark and twisted world of albums like "Welcome to my nightmare" and "Alice cooper goes to hell". Even darker and more sinister in a lot of ways. With classic tracks like "Roses on white lace", "Freedom", "Gail", and "Give the radio back"...... "Raise your fist and yell" is a true heavy metal masterpiece!

Underrated, unnoticed, BEST ALBUM | Reviewer: Nathan Nicholas | 4/8/10

Depending on whether you liked Alice Cooper more for metal or hard rock may be a factor in ruling this album, but for those kick-ass heavy metal lovers, Raise Your Fist and Yell is awesome. I don't know why this album is so hard to find and is so seldom advertised, but its a real hidden treasure. Personally I got a little tired of the Alice Cooper metal-era-ballads, so this one is refreshing. With heavy tracks like "Freedom", "Step on You", and without a doubt "Roses on White Lace", I fell in love with this combination of the vocalizations of Alice Cooper, the innovative guitar of Kane Roberts, and the pounding, heavy drum beats of Ken K. Mary. Neither Constrictor or Trash could compare in my opinion. Not only is it heavier than usual, but the Kane Roberts guitar licks and riffs are such a treat. At some times there even seems to be progressive elements subtly added in the mix. And with the drums, the double bass kick is truly appreciated. There's still yet to mention the frontman, Alice Cooper. There are some damn catchy melodies and lyrics in this album, all portrayed through Alice's signature raspy voice. Some of the songs I think should definitely been hit songs, yet I think the only hit was "Freedom" (first I heard of it; on VH1 Classic's Metal Mania), and even that isn't shown off very much. A truly magnificent, metal album. I'm baffled at how little it is publicized. It should be regarded as a classic!!!
