Brutal Planet is the 21st studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 2000. Lyrically, it's a concept album that deals with themes of dark "social fiction", including domestic violence ("Take It Like a Woman"), prejudice ("Blow Me a Kiss"), war ("Pick Up the Bones") and school shootings ("Wicked Young Man"). The album is the second album in a trilogy of albums (beginning with The Last Temptation and ending with Dragontown).
Doug Van Pelt, editor of the alternative Christian music-oriented HM Magazine, found that the lyrics communicated biblical morals "in a very powerful way". Van Pelt stated further that the final argument is provided in the title track, which condemns the systems of judgment that the world uses. Moreover, "Blow Me a Kiss" urges the listener to think deeper about spiritual matters.
All songs written by Alice Cooper and Bob Marlette except where noted.
