Alice Cooper mounted a successful comeback in 1986 with his CONSTRICTOR album and tour, which showed that Cooper's extended hiatus from the stage hadn't dulled his shocking theatrics in the slightest. A follow-up album was issued almost exactly one year later, RAISE YOUR FIST AND YELL, which was very similar in sound and approach to its predecessor. Dokken/Stryper producer Michael Wagener lends a pop sheen to Cooper's trademark macabre metal.
Muscle-bound guitarist Kane Roberts again collaborates with Alice on all of the tracks, while future Winger leader, Kip Winger, joined the pair in penning the ghostly ballad, "Gail." The album-opening rocker, "Freedom," is a slam against the P.M.R.C. (a group that successfully got warning stickers placed on albums it deemed controversial), while "Roses on White Lace," "Chop, Chop, Chop," and "Prince of Darkness" proved to be standouts as well.
