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!
