Entertainment Weekly - 6/9/00, p.79"...Finds [Cooper] spinning characteristically grim fables as his backing band gamely grinds out old-school hard rock and metal cliches....AC is one of the few fogies who can make this shameless self-pastiche palatable." - Rating: B-
Q - 7/00, p.1123 stars out of 5 - "...A slow grower, but certainly Cooper's best since '89s TRASH..."
CMJ - 5/29/00, p.29"...A welcome reminder of his unwaning power....fleshed out by some thoroughly chunky riffs..."
Melody Maker - 7/11/00, p.493 stars out of 5 - "...A rather exciting little album....the batty old loon's still putting up a good fight."

First and foremost, Shock Rock: The Early Days is actually just 2000's Brutal Planet with a different title and cover. The inane title, which sounds like it was generated by an Internet search for the words "shock rock" and "early days," has no relevance to the album itself, as Brutal Planet found Cooper reveling in straight-up, White Zombie-inspired metal rather than revisiting the psychedelic horror of his late-'60s/early-'70s heyday. Wickedly snide, but with tongue firmly in cheek, songs like "Sanctuary, "Wicked Young Man," and the appropriately nasty title cut present a real return to form, especially for fans of Cooper's post-Trash output. ~ James Christopher Monger
