"My favorite era of Alice was the late 80's and Early 90's, so I had to get this DVD for myself come hell or highwater.
I dont know if I have a faulty disk, or if it's actualy supposed to be in 1.0 sound. Meaning audio is only coming out of one speaker, i've played other DVD's in my machine to check, it's only this disc thats doing that.
Even tho I could not enjoy this in surround sound, it is quite a good performance, I gotta say, I expected to be let down by the songs not sounding any good live, but it quite suprised me how they actualy sounded quite like the original recordings, the backing vocals are not as strong as like on the TRASH album, but I thought they sounded pretty darn good actualy! Especialy on POISON, every live version I have heard prior to this performance on this DVD sounded horrible, but this one actualy sounds very good!
The stage show itself is not anywhere near as good as "Welcom To My Nightmare" there is not a lot of stage show, theatrics at all on this, there is the gillotine and nurses, staright jackets ect... but nothing spectacular, but that does not take anythign away from this great live show! I could possibly be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is the show that the live tracks off "Alice Coooper Classics" are from. I'm 90% sure on that, so if you have heard that album, and liked what you hear, then this is the stuff!
There are no bonus features, no subtitles, no extras... there is just your main menu with song selection (Chapter index) and Play/Resume.
The set list is...
2. BILLION DOLLAR BABIES
3. I'M EIGHTEEN
4. I'M YOUR GUN
6. HOUSE OF FIRE
7. NO MORE, MR. NICE GUY
8. THIS MANIAC'S IN LOVE WITH YOU
10. WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE
11. BALLED OF DWIGHT FRY
12. GUTTER CATS VS THE JETS
13. ONLY WOMEN BLEED
14. I LOVE THE DEAD
16. MUSCLE OF LOVE
17. SPARK IN THE DARK
18. BED OF NAILS
19. SCHOOLS OUT
20. UNDER MY WHEELS
21. ONLY MY HEART TALKING (not live, it's audio of the actualy song played during the credits)
VOCALS: Alice Cooper
GUITARS: Al Pitrelli & Pete Freezen
BASS: T-Bone Caradonna
KEYBOARDS: Derek Sheriniann
DRUMS: Jonathan Mover
Almost the entire TRASH album is in the set list, except "why Trust You", "Hell Is Living Without You" and "Only My Heart Talking" but the songs that are on here all go well in the same set list, they sound terrific, and get better as the show rolls on... A lot of people where asking on web sites if Slash, Bon Jovi, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry where on this show? No, it wouldve been nice to see them, but no, they are not on the show, there are no guests at all, there is a female who comes on later in the show to add some pretty good backing vocals tho, she really lifts the sound of the vocals.
Even tho it seems to be in 1.0, and there is no bonus features, for it's price, i'm happy with it. If you like the TRASH album, you'll love this DVD, if you didnt like that album, you might wanna check it out for the songs that are performed that havent been brought out on any DVD yet... they do sound great, but they are played in the metal/hard rock style of the trash album!
UPDATE: It turned out my speakers where faulty, it is in 2.0 sound, might even be 3.0... i'm really not sure, but 2 channels work and it sounds awsome!! Just wish it was louder!"
Alice Cooper - 'Trashes The World' VHS (Sony/Columbia)

"Having to get to see Alice on his 'Trash The World' tour,I remember in a radio interview that he promised it would be MORE of a bigger-brighter,more exciting rock&roll show,much like the 'Billion Dollar Babies' tour was(for it's time).Low and behold his promise was more than kept.This here video makes a GREAT keepsake for any fan that caught him on that tour.'Trashes...' was taped/filmed in Birmingham,UK and one of the best features on this video is the cinematography;you know the way it was shot.There's one angle that I remember,that occured several times,the one where the camera swoops over the audience and stops to the left of the stage.Now,THAT'S superb video taping!!The twenty song setlist is truly the best Alice has played in years.Opening with "Trash" where the set-up gives us the 'new' Alice popping/busting out of a trash can,then giving you "Billion Dollar Babies","I'm Eighteen","Steven/Welcome To My Nightmare","Ballad of Dwight Fry"(where he dons the straight-jacket),"Gutter Cats Vs.The Jets"(classic Coop stuff here),"I Love The Dead","Poison",the RARELY performed "Muscle Of Love",the infamous "School's Out","Under My Wheels" and many others.I haven't even checked to see if this title has yet been released on DVD.Great choice."

"lIf You are an Alice fan you will love this video; He does the great songs you will remember, and some you may have never heard. The band is good, the videography[did I say that right?] is also very good. The man growls out one song after the other in that unique style of his; in your face Alice. And his voice is so hot, you may have to turn up the AC when you watch this video. If you are not an Alice fan, you will be,after seeing this video."

"...is another man's treasure. I was very glad to find that this DVD existed. I saw Alice on this tour and it was nice to jump in the ole rock and roll time machine and take a trip back a few years.
This disc is just great. Sound and video are both excellent. It is a nice performance by the band.
I love collecting DVD s of tours I 've seen and this is a very nice souvenir of the tour."
