        ... Zzzz... hphm.. what? Why'd you wake me? Oh, the CD is over.
Thank God! There's like two or three somewhat loud songs to try and make up
for the most boring sleep inducing music produced.  Ever wonder why people
think eighties music sucked? Make a tape of this one, remove Alice Cooper,
INXS, Sly Fox and Erasure and you have a tape to remind yourself.  Very slow
and popish.  Whoever put Alice Cooper on this CD must have been someone who
was about 40 when this music came out, and said something like "I love all
these songs, but I better put an Alice Cooper song on it to make it look
cooler."  Too bad the only cool thing on this CD was the Cooper tune.  The CD
is recent enough though to mention last year's (1996) problems in Van Halen
in reference to David Lee Roth, so you'd think someone would be able to look
back and remember something better from ten years ago.
