This early-eighties album is one of Alice's best, with lots of good songs, and a 'deep' sound that has been lost in the blink of an eye in favour of the genericness of eighties metal...Don't be silly, hear Dada now, and be amazed by songs like ''Pass the gun around'' or ''Enough's enough''

I always had a thing about Alice, ever since I heard Welcome To My Nightmare and Last Temptation as a teenager. As time went by I gathered a few more AC albums, including the incredible Billion Dollar Babies, and one day I came across this oft-overlooked oddity. Here, Alice is in the depths of his alcoholism and went into rehab as soon as it was done - meaning no tour and consequently no sales.
However, it's another Bob Ezrin album, which is usually enough to make me sit up and listen at least (let's forgive the man for The Elder, huh?). From the creepy ambient opener Dada to the seriously depressing closer Pass The Gun Around this is a great piece of work, filled with weird characters and the uniquely twisted and hilarious lyrics which make Alice everyone's favourite Crazed Uncle.
Personal favourite moment is No Man's Land, which opens with "I got a job playing Santa in a mall in Atlantic, not because of any talent but because I was the only one the suit would fit..." A sadly maligned album with tunes (Scarlett & Sheba, f'rinstance) that should get much more airplay than the awful Poison.
