Alice Cooper started off playing rebellious Rock music, which later developed into the Alice Cooper show with emphasis on the theatrical shock aspect. In the 80's Alice Cooper made some stunning Hard Rock Records. After being on hiatus Alice returned with "Brutal Planet" and "Dragontown", which both had industrial influences and both records were inspired by that time's cold machine-like sound. Never less they were great albums and 2003 saw Cooper approaching his starting point with "The Eyes of Alice Cooper". With "Dirty Diamonds" everything comes full circle. Alice has gone the whole length and made a full blown 70's Rock record, where several songs sound like they are direct descendants of Under my Wheels. The style is now labelled retro Rock but since Cooper did this in the 70's "Dirty Diamonds" seems a lot more trustworthy than 18 year-old kids playing "retro-rock". "Dirty Diamonds" follows the garage rock style from "The Eyes of Alice Cooper" and despite this is a better album, it still has a few sharp edges.
