For Alice, then and even to this date within his lyrics whether he's visiting the dentist, psychiatrist, anything sexual to a horror story he had a theme.

Alice in an interview with Creem magazine said, "The whole idea behind the album was exploiting the idea that people do have sick perversions."

Apparently sick perversions was the answer to this album as it was his first and last album to chart at #1.
