Alice decided to continue his slightly heavier direction he went in with Constrictor and released the following year Raise Your Fist and Yell. The album continues absolutely epic guitar work by Kane Roberts and let me throw in Ken Mary is a very underrated drummer.

This album also led to one of Alice's greatest tours (and that is saying a lot considering Alice is the ultimate showman). I always thought Freedom should have been a massive hit as it was an anthem, though perhaps a little bit heavy and fast for radio at the time and the so called Trilogy on the second half of the album is a favorite among fans.

I have also always liked the song Step on You which is a nice heavy song. Alice has always been about dark humor and it was good to see an album come out as the hair bands were in full force that was melodic but also heavy so it was catchy enough for hair band fans but heavy enough for those that like a more metal sound and it was vintage sounding enough to please old school Alice fans.

This is a great metal album by the legendary Alice Cooper. After taking a few years off to clean himself up for good in 1983, Alice returned in 1986 with the Constrictor album. It was a solid return and the stages how was amazing.

Alice decided the next year to put out another album, Raise Your Fist and Yell which was heavier and faster and a little more of his trademark lyrics.

The guitar work of Kane Roberts is stellar here and every song basically rocks. Most of the standouts are probably on the second half of the album but the opener "Freedom" is a bona-fide classic. One of the things that stands out on this release as well is Ken Mary's drumming. If you are unfamiliar with him and like good drums, get to know his work.

This album should suit any hard rock and metal fan.

One of Alice's heaviest albums and just a fun listen. The songs are heavy yet melodic and when are we going to start giving Kane Roberts some credit? That guy was/is a terrific guitar player.

One of Alice's hardest rocking albums. The second half of RYFAY is a metal masterpiece and great guitar playing by Kane Roberts who is a very underrated guitarist.

podarený album s kvalitným "otvárakom" Freedom. Týmto albumom začína pre mňa hudobne najlepšia doba Alice Coopera
