Brutal Planet is the 21st studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 2000. Lyrically, it’s a concept album that deals with themes of dark “social fiction”, including domestic violence (“Take It Like a Woman”), prejudice (“Blow Me a Kiss”), war (“Pick Up the Bones”) and school shootings (“Wicked Young Man”). The album is the second album in a trilogy of albums (beginning with The Last Temptation and ending with Dragontown).
Musically this is a major change from anything Alice had recorded to this point. The tone of the album is much more of an industrial heavy metal sound than his usual hard rock style. With it’s post-apocalyptic themes, artwork, & sound it has a far heavier feel than Alice’s preceding works. The album lives up to it’s “Brutal Planet” name.
