....as master shock rocker Alice Cooper takes you down the path towards "Brutal Planet" and eventually "DragonTown". "The Last Temptation" tells the story of Steven, who we first met in "Welcome to my Nightmare", again in "Goes to Hell", and at the very end of "Hey Stoopid". In TLT Steven starts out as being bored with life. Nothing seems to get his interest. This opens the door for the Lord of Darkness himself, Satan, to come in and help Steven out. Satan makes Steven an offer that is hard to refuse, all the pleasures this world has ("You're My Temptation"). Power, money, sex, you name it and Steven can have it.
What Steven is not told is that there is a price to pay for accepting the ways of the world ("Nothing's Free"). Mean while there is a battle going on. A spiritual battle that Steven is not even aware of. God wants none to be lost but ultimately the choice is up to the individual.
While Steven wrestle's with the idea of all the power, wealth, and women, he knows deep inside that it is not right.
Does Steven make the right choice? Listen to TLT and find out. It is one of the most powerful and awesome albums Alice Cooper has ever put out and you can tell it comes from the heart. It is full of the truth and love of God and the perfect launching pad for the rest of the "Brutal Planet" trilogy. - Mel Irizarry
