Killer is the best, most consistent Alice Cooper album (back when Alice Cooper was the band, not just the singer's name). "Under My Wheels" starts things off with a bang, rocking hard and (along with "Desperado") is the start of the outlaw image that became such a part of the group/singer's identity. "Be My Lover" is a love song that only a bad boy could sing, more like a stalker, than a romantic. My personal favorite, "Halo Of Flies" rocks hard, but also goes into an extended prog-rock/art-rock section that proves these guys not only could rock, but that they were real musicians, too, soaring into complex changes that was rare for a rock band in 1971. But have no fear, real rock fans, "You Drive Me Nervous" and "Dead Babies" bring back to the straight ahead rock that fans of later Alice Cooper come to expect. Each song brings enjoyment from first listen, enjoyment and thrills that only continue to grow with each subsequent listen.

If you became a Cooper fan with Welcome To My Nightmare or only know Cooper from the song "School's Out", this is an album you really need to hear!
Later in the 1970's, he broke up the original band and started getting well known and getting radio play with soft ballads like "Only Women Bleed" and "I Never Cry", which started a disappointing turn for the rock star and presaged the sad trend in the 90's of rock band getting famous for writing ballads: think "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" or "No More Words".
If you became a fan during his later comeback: "Poison" or "Hey, Stoopid", two albums in which I feel Cooper was making a blatant attempt to be modern commercial, run of the mill hard rock, you may not be thrilled by this album. Or you may be amazed at how different Cooper was back in the early 70's.

This, however, along with Love It To Death and School's Out (the album), show the breadth and overall versatility of this powerful band that was like nothing which had been seen or heard, back in its time. A truly groundbreaking work of art and theatre. The original Alice Cooper Band was overall just a really great rock n roll band! Check it out!
