By 1994, Alice had seemingly done the impossible, huge in the 1970's and then after hard rock had a decline in the 80's and then by the mid 80's hair bands started emerging and started talking about what Alice meant to them. The Coop (as he is affectionately known) who had taken a break to refind himself from 1983 (After Dada was released) until 1986 returned to the scene for good with a roar putting out Constrictor and the metal masterpiece Raise Your Fist and Yell. In 1989, realizing a more commercial hair band sound was at its full force, Cooper released Trash in 1989 which was a massive hit for Alice. 1991, Alice put out another commercial hard rock album with Hey Stoopid which got strong reviews and is also a great album.

However, by the time Hey Stoopid came out music as it always does was beginning to change and by the end of 1992 commercial hard band rock was all but gone (only a few bands in early 93 had any success). Alice decided in 1994 to go back to his roots and doing a concept album called The Last Temptation. The album focuses on the character of Steven, who was the main character of the Alice classic release, "Welcome To My Nightmare. And once again Alice hit paydirt. The album features Steven being tempted by the showman (Alice). It is a story about moral redemption and overcoming temptation and the album completely works.

The songs at times are heavy and other times more mellow and the album has many different tempos and moods. It sounds in some ways

The only downside of this masterpiece is it came out in 1994 when grunge had taken over the charts. Make no mistake about it, this album is a classic Alice album and maybe his best.

The songs were modern for their time but also had elements of his earlier work as well. Alice sounds great and there was even a cool comic book that came out to collaborate with this album.

The album is conceptual and Moody sounding with a great storyline. Standout tracks are plentiful on The Last Temptation. Nothing's Free is a Moody midterm song. You're My Temptation is one of my favorite Alice tunes ever and I love the guitar riff on that one. Cleansed By Fire is one of my favorite closing Aluce songs on a Coop album. This is one of the best mid 90's albums out there during a time when hard rock and metal were struggling.

This is one of Alice's best. There aren't any songs on this album I don't like and if you follow the storyline in this conceptual album (Alice is the master of the Concept album), you will really dig it.

Chris Cornell 이 함께한 트랙 뿐만 아니라, 그냥 앨범 전체를 관통하는 코드는 얼터너티브입니다. 전반적으로 멀끔하게 다듬어진 얼터너티브록 느낌이 물씬 납니다. 키보드에는 Derek Sherinian이 힘을 보탰습니다. 일단 누가들어도 Alice Cooper 음악임에는 틀림없고 유기성도 좋아서 한번 돌리기에 즐거움이 따르나, 두번 세번 까지는 독실한 팬이 아니어서 모르겠습니다.

Tremendous, tremendous album by a rock legend. Alice sounds great here and the storyline and the comic book that came with it add to the excitement. It is a shame this came out during the grunge era and Alice left the label shortly after its release because this is the Coop at his best.

I love everything about this album, it really plays to Alice's tremendous strengths and just a great storyline and I like the way this entire record sounds.

Alice has had many highlights in his career. This one was such a breath of fresh air when it came out during grunge's peak. The Coop did what the Coop wanted. Instead of going grunge like most artist, he made a jard rock concept album. If you don't own this, shame.

[Killer], [Billion Dollars Babies]. [Love It To Death]와 함께 앨리스 쿠퍼 4대 명반으로 꼽습니다. 특히 1번트랙은 살짝 감동 먹었음. 하나 아쉬운건 7번 트랙에서 크리스 코넬 냄새가 너무 많이 나요.ㅋ

이 엘범을 들을 때 마다, 젝와일드나 판테라식으로 메틀릭한 풍으로 연주되었다면 정말 좋았겠다는 생각을 하게 된다. 들어본 엘리스 쿠퍼 엘범들 중 손에 꼽는데, 그만큼 전곡이 취향이나 너무 팝-롹 쪽으로 간 듯 하다. 1~5번트렉, 특히 3,4,5번을 좋아한다. 3번은 센스있는 가사가 재미있는데 이런 글(가사)을 쓰는 재치는 상당히 대단하다고 생각한다.

부클릿에 앨리스쿠퍼가 주인공인 공포만화 들어있음. 3이 첫싱글 이었던것은 좀 의외였음. 9도 주요곡이고 사운드가든의 크리스 코넬이 고음을 제공한 6도 주요곡. 개인적으로 8도 좋고 전체적으로 봤을때 말랑한 곡들이 잘만들어졌고 락킹한 곡들도 괜찮았음
