Several of these 13 songs were once bonus tracks, downloads or videogame placements. Yet the hodgepodge hangs together okay, partly thanks to lots of aging Alice Cooper shtick: Notably in the multi-rhymed bad-guy tune "Public Enemy No. 1," teen-angst tantrum "Whose Life (Is It Anyways?)" and schlock horror story "Deadly Nightshade." We get current events, too: global illuminati conspiracy theories in "We the People" and "New World Order"; Mexican cartels in "Guns, Drugs, & Money." Plus some hot guitar -- curiously Van Halen-like in spots; occasionally steamrolling, shredding or psychedelic.
