Brutal Planet Era 2
Brutal Planet Cassette Album

Brutal Planet was subject to a release on cassette in Eastern Europe. This version comes from Russia and includes the standard 11 tracks found on the original CD version of the album.
Brutal Planet CD Album
2006, Eagle Rock, 8285
This version of the Brutal Planet album was released in 2006, comes in a jewel case, and features a live image of Alice (from the Trashes The World tour).
Also included is an interesting booklet, which features a 2-page biography plus handy matrix tables showing most of the Alice Cooper (band and solo) single and album releases and chart positions in the USA, UK, Germany, Holland and Australia. At the back of the booklet are track titles and credits.
Brutal Planet CD Album
2007, Weton Exclusive, WX043
This version of the Brutal Planet album was released in 2007 and features different artwork throughout. Instead of the dark artwork of the original we get a computer generated image of a snake set on a dark red background.
Also on offer is a jewel case complete, a CD complete with snake and an 8-page booklet featuring track listings, credits and a biography on Alice's early years (this is slightly odd seeing as the album, which is not mentioned at all, came out in 2000).
Pick Up The Bones CD Album
2007, Music Sessions, MS045
To the untrained eye, this CD might appear to offer the listener a selection of songs covering Alice's 21st century albums. Great huh? Err, not really, as this is actually just Brutal Planet with a different name and artwork. It's a good job then that Brutal Planet is a fine album, but the packaging is certainly a bit misleading for what is, in truth, a non-essential purchase.
This release features a card slip case and a jewel CD case complete with a simple paper inlay, which includes track listings and credits.
The Early Days Alice Cooper Shock Rock CD Album
2011, Starline Media, SME015-2
Following hot on the heals of the bizarre Pick Up The Bones (above) is this release. Again, it is just the original version of Brutal Planet but the title has swung completely the other way by implying that it includes music from the early years of shock rock. Whilst Alice is indeed the undisputed king of shock rock, this material is the best part of 30 years after he achieved this status.
This release features a jewel CD case complete with a simple folded paper inlay, which includes track listings, credits and adverts for some other releases.
