Alice Cooper: A Step-By-Step Buyer's Guide

A Listmania! list by Gareth Hall "Lord Rockingham" (Birmingham, United Kingdom)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Billion Dollar Babies: DELUXE EDITION
1.  Billion Dollar Babies: DELUXE EDITION by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "Alice's biggest commercial success, and his finest album, this went to No. 1 in the UK and USA. It is anarchic, provocative, funny, scary, full of hits, and every classic rock fan should own a copy."
14.81   Used & New from: 5.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Welcome To My Nightmare [Expanded & Remastered]
2.  Welcome To My Nightmare [Expanded & Remastered] by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "This is a rock opera concept record, drawing inspiration from Broadway showtunes and Hollywood horror. It is the fullest expression of Alice Cooper's stage persona, and quite simply, a masterpiece."
14.39   Used & New from: 4.62
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Killer
3.  Killer by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "From the rough, raw Detroit garage rock of "Under My Wheels" to the psychedelic grandeur of "Halo Of Flies", this record crystallised the early intensity of the original band. Packed with classics."
4.84   Used & New from: 2.00
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

The Last Temptation: Book I
4.  The Last Temptation: Book I by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "A dark tale of youth corrupted by the sinister Showman (and a cool 3 part comic) , this 1994 release revisited the theatricality of "Welcome...", and resulted in Alice's best album in 19 years."
9.99   Used & New from: 0.25
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Hey Stoopid
5.  Hey Stoopid by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "This is an album of glam-metal anthems, unadulterated and irresistable. Very similar to Alice's comeback hit "Trash", but bigger, better and more diverse. Features the classic "Feed My Frankenstein"."
4.99   Used & New from: 1.42
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

The Eyes of Alice Cooper [Purple Eyed Cover]
6.  The Eyes of Alice Cooper [Purple Eyed Cover] by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "By 2003, most rock fans had dismissed Alice as too old to matter. Then this came out: an album of vintage garage rock, fresher and meaner than most young garage bands today. An unexpected triumph."
9.98   Used & New from: 2.66
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Alice Cooper Goes To Hell
7.  Alice Cooper Goes To Hell by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "The closest Alice ever came to writing a Broadway musical. Not enough rock for some, but superb songwriting and Alice's most concise concept idea make this an overlooked gem."
15.69   Used & New from: 6.95
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

TRASH.
8.  TRASH. by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "Alice's biggest commercial success since the 70's, this features the smash hit "Poison". Those looking for similar fare on the album will not be disappointed - this is 80's glam-metal at its best."
5.44   Used & New from: 0.20
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

From The Inside
9.  From The Inside by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "The most personal album Alice ever wrote, and a cult favourite among diehard Alice fans. Drawn from real life tales in an insane asylum (!), this is full of emotive ballads, given a vicious twist."
5.67   Used & New from: 3.76
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Love It To Death
10.  Love It To Death by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "The first AC record to abandon shambolic experimentalism for well-honed garage rock. The key man was producer Bob Ezrin, who inspired the "alter-ego" that would make Alice Cooper a legend."
5.34   Used & New from: 1.69
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Brutal Planet
11.  Brutal Planet by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "An apocalyptic metal album with industrial influences, this is an oppressively bleak record, and unlike anything Alice had done before. More subtle than it first sounds, it rewards repeated listening."
12.99   Used & New from: 0.52
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

School'S Out
12.  School'S Out by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "This features Alice's biggest hit (the title track), but the rest of the record is more experimental, even jazzy. Fascinating, but not for everyone. The original vinyl came wrapped in women's panties!"
5.19   Used & New from: 1.49
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Muscle of Love
13.  Muscle of Love by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "1974 saw the original band split, never to reform. With minds elsewhere, this album wandered into casual jam material, before the terrific title track and "Teenage Lament" snapped it back into focus."
7.23   Used & New from: 3.49
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Constrictor
14.  Constrictor by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "Alice's 80's comeback began here, although commercial success would not arrive until "Trash" 3 years later. This is Alice in glam-metal mode again, with good songs but thin, clunky production."
8.16   Used & New from: 1.83
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Dada
15.  Dada by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "An eerie, synthesised album about a murderer who feeds his victims to a brother locked away in an attic. Despite a couple of real duds, the best of these songs are utterly captivating."
6.54   Used & New from: 2.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Raise Your Fist and Yell
16.  Raise Your Fist and Yell by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "The follow-up to "Constrictor", this was better produced and heavier, with some graphic horror themes. This has some of Alice's laziest lyrics, but overall it's a decent anthemic rock record."
5.48   Used & New from: 2.02
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Dirty Diamonds
17.  Dirty Diamonds by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "2005 saw Alice trying to replicate the critical success of "The Eyes..." with more old school rock. There are some pleasingly whimsical ideas, but this time the music is not nearly as energetic."
Used & New from: 2.40
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Lace and Whiskey
18.  Lace and Whiskey by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "A character concept record with Alice playing a grizzled private eye called Maurice Escargot (!). Strikingly personal in places, listless and lightweight in others."
Used & New from: 7.11
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Flush the Fashion
19.  Flush the Fashion by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "In 1980 Alice took on a new image - severe military chic - and a different sound: new wave. "Clones (We're All)" and "Pain" are superb, but they are outnumbered by more forgettable songs."
6.44   Used & New from: 3.01
2.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Dragontown
20.  Dragontown by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "The sequel to "Brutal Planet", and another example of Alice repeating a good idea with less interesting results. Not as heavy or intense as "Brutal...", with more filler between the better tracks."
6.77   Used & New from: 0.29
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Special Forces
21.  Special Forces by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "Another new wave early 80's effort. Alice's vocals sound weary, and the experimentation with new sounds and lyrical themes is more miss than hit."
6.78   Used & New from: 3.75
2.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Zipper Catches Skin
22.  Zipper Catches Skin by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "Alice neglected to tour for this record, and has never returned to it in any of his subsequent setlists. Some tracks are memorable for their quirkiness, but most come across as confused and desperate."
6.49   Used & New from: 3.38
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Along Came A Spider
23.  Along Came A Spider by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "Alice's most recent release (as of 2009) is hugely disappointing. Musically pedestrian, and despite a serial killer concept, the lyrics could not be more bland or circumspect."
13.31   Used & New from: 2.79
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

Easy Action
24.  Easy Action by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "What a difference a year makes - in 1971, "Love it to Death" would ignite Alice's career, but in 1970, he was still mired in aimless avant garde indulgences that were literally chasing audiences away."
6.30   Used & New from: 1.59
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Pretties For You
25.  Pretties For You by Alice Cooper
The list author says:
  "The very first Alice Cooper album, released in 1969. A collection of utterly random, chaotic freak-outs that only a very select few would appreciate."
5.89   Used & New from: 1.50
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)
