Dirty Diamonds

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Alice Cooper; Producer (group): New West

On his 24th studio album, Dirty Diamonds — his best in years — the now-57 Alice Cooper curbs his trend-jumping tendencies of the past few decades and goes back to his twisted roots, offering witty headbangers alongside ripe-for-radio glitter pop (”Perfect,” ”Your Own Worst Enemy”) and a wonderful reading of the Left Banke’s ’60s baroque & roll chestnut ”Pretty Ballerina.” What’s now most shocking about the original shock rocker is how much fun he seems to be having.
