    A Killer Album!

    Posted
    Galadrielle

    Alice Cooper and his original band present us with a magnificently macabre album, very appropriate for Halloween. Here, Cooper's vocals shine, while the band makes their own firm statements through their splendid music. The lively "Under My Wheels" is like eating dessert first because it is clearly the best part of the entire album! The trick to this rendition being so great is that fabulous saxophone, which is a real treat! It is an excellent fusion of heavy metal and jazz. In "Halo of Flies," written in the early 1970's, Cooper is up to true form with his use of dry irony. For example, "I will be living in old Monte Carlo / If you will be reading me secrets of soul" at first sounds as if the singer is genuinely interested in the listener's secrets of soul, but if you listen closely, he implies that he will actually be far away, should you dare to read them to him! Cooper's use of imagery in "Desperado" is also of the finest caliber, in which he mentions a "picture of ugly stories" and stepping into the street by sundown. It reminds me of a good Western! "Dead Babies" is perhaps the hardest song to appreciate because it is a cautionary tale of child neglect. The melody is delightfully dark, but the lyrics subtly remind us to treat all little kids with the compassion and love that they so desperately need and deserve, as they are unable to take care of themselves! Killer is a real treat that I enjoy playing every Halloween!

    Love this album, even though it doesn't have a "hit" song on it. Great lyrics and musically one of Alice Cooper's best. A very solid album that is different from his other releases, but continues to show the progression of the band from Love It to Death. I especially like the guitars and drums on You Drive Me Nervous. There also some interesting combinations with the strings and guitar.

    I am a huge Alice Cooper fan - used to have this on cassette tape, which disappeared long ago. It was great to hear the whole album again. I had forgotten what an excellent rock n' roll album this was ! Fantastic imagery backed by a tight band. Welcome to my nightmare...

    Come here for the music but stay for the experience. Every Alice Cooper record is an out of body experience. This is no exception!
