"This is a good CD definitely worth buying if you are new to the world of Alice. However, I am not a big fan of best of/greatest hits album if you are like me and already have all of his studio albums anyway. There is some live tracks on this album which is pretty cool plus a cover of the Jimi Hendrix tune Fire but not much you haven't heard before making this a good album but I'd spend my money buying other Alice first."
Good for those only wanting his better songs

"Not being much of an Alice Cooper fan but really liking a few of his songs I found this album satisfied my needs quite well. The huge song Poison is on here along with other great songs. I would have preferred none of them were live and were still originals but the live performances aren't bad.This is the only Alice Cooper album I own and would recommend it for others who just want a few of his good songs."
Not all that Classic Alice Cooper

"While I like this CD, I do have two complaints about it. First, it has six live recordings. Second, the "classics" are principally live, with Alice Cooper's 80s hits not being live. Unfortunately, if you purchased the much better "Mascara and Monsters" CD you will also need this one because it includes several songs that were missed in that collection, particularly "Hey Stoopid" and "Feed My Frankenstein." Have you ever noticed how many greatest hits collections always seem to miss at least one bona fide hit, which means you have to buy at least two greatest hits collections to get them all. Such is the case with both "Mascara and Monsters" and "Classicks."I remain a big Alice Cooper fan, but unless you are a fan of live music I would avoid this particular collection. I really did not care for the mixture of live and studio recordings."
I just love Alice Cooper

"I would have to say my picks of this CD are "Poison", "Love's a Loaded Gun", "House of Fire", and "Lost in America". Cooper delivers pure hard rock with a good rhythm and melody, instead of just a screamfest as so many other metal bands do."
