I'm a young Alice fan, first attracted by 'Wayne's World' and seeing repeats of 'Schools Out' on the BBCs Top of the Pops 2. So, like the heathen I am, I feel more inclined to rave about the later albums - and I do love 'Trash' best of all. Sometimes, whilst appreciating the quality and ground-breaking nature of albums like 'Love it to Death', it can be difficult to love them as much as you think you should when you didn't live through the era - when you're used to Alice's snarling vocals and hard rock, not to mention fantastic recording quality, some of the earlier albums are harder to get to grips with. But 'Killer' is the one early album that I would recommend any new fan buys. It's hard rock. It's teenage angst ( I was 18 when I bought it...I prefer 'You Drive Me Nervous' to 'I'm Eighteen', classic though the latter might be) It's the sinister side of Alice in full force. I think more than any other early albums it shows the way Alice Cooper will develop. 'Under My Wheels' is a great rockin' track and a staple of his live shows even now. 'Dead Babies' is also a necessity to own if you've ever heard it live. My other faves are 'Be My Lover' and (one of my favourite ever Alice tracks)'Desperado', both great musically and lyrically and fantastic to sing along to. Even if you like 'Trash' and 'Dragontown' better than 'School's Out' and 'Billion Dollar Babies' you should own 'Killer'. It's the sort of album Alice could release now and, if you excuse the (in my opinion) weaker vocals and slightly tinny sound, it wouldn't be out of place. All Alice Cooper fans should own this album. To me it defines what Alice was at the time and marks out the path for what he would become - truly great.

Way way back in 1971,this was the first album recorded by the 5 original band members called Alice Cooper from a position of fame,found a year earlier with '18' off 'Love it to death' .
I got this album in '72 after buying 'school's out' at the tender age of 11.
I'd say to any new fan of the coop that this is a must album to have,one which captures alice's harder side of the music.
Killer opens with the quick paced rocker 'under my wheels' still used today as part of the stage show,quickly followed by michael bruces 'be my lover' ,which is definatley someones life story to date. track 3 is the epic 'halo of flies' with its eastern theme and heavy rock,changing by violins to a drum and bass section,and ending franetically as a crescendo.Pure classic alice(and whats missing from todays albums).Desperado is a very clever ballad/rock chorus of a gun slinger from the wild west,another class song!
Track 5 is possibly the weakest of the album but still no mean song with its wailing guitars 'you drive me nervous' then 'yeah yeah yeah','under my wing,youcan pull my leg or anything' a first sight of a little humour. 'Dead babies' visits the macabre side of alice,with little betty eating a pound of aspirin from the shelf upon the wall,brilliant.
the last track and title track is a return to the 'black juju' type of theme,which definatley has occultist overtones with its rock verses,middle rock instrumental(just like the longer tracks off easy action or pretties for you)then the wailing vocals and seance like chanting finishing off with the organ and drums to the hanging. Inspirational!!!!!
If you like the lighter side of alice,go for billion dollar babies, but for the dark side of the coop,this has to be the best early cooper album of them all

Had this since 1972. Vinyl with a gatefold calendar. It may sound slightly dated but to me is still the finest 35 mins of Rock and Roll mayhem ever recorded. From the well known Under my Wheels / Desperado and the epic Halo of Flies to the 2 and a half minutes of You Drive me Nervous (did Garage Rock ever get any better). This is a class album. He never better'd this as a solo artist.

I first bought this back in 1972. They looked the sickest most demented bunch of Dudes I had ever seen. I knew I was buying the most dangerous band rock had to offer at the time but I didn't think I was buying the finest album I would ever hear.
Under My Wheels kicks off, an scream of a song but it is pure foreplay for the delectable Be My Lover a piece of voyeuristic cabaret penned solely by guitarist Michael bruce and given the Mae West "come up and see me some time " treatment by Alice. This leads into Halo Of Flies the band's "progressive song" which is actually 4 songs in one. All galloping guitars and shimmering percussion it's a journy of espionage and intrigue which has Alice even mimmicking Julie Andrews a la Sound Of Music. Desparado has beautiful opening chords and is to this day my all time favourite rock ballad.
You Drive Me Nervous does just that and Alice's vocal on Yeah Yeah Yeah would have Daltry bursting a blood vessel & Jagger throwing up.
The stagepiece is Dead Babies a truly harrowing tale of parental neglect which musically owes most Denis Dunaway's heavy bassline. The crowd demand Alice be hanged but it is Alice Cooper who are passing sentence. The days of the peace & love generation were numbered for that matter there was a time bomb ticking under civilisation.
The finale & title track sees Alice hanging, hanging but triumphant, triumphant & unassailable. There were Peter Pans out there. Now there was a Captain Hook. The summer of love went on too long then it rained forever. Alice Cooper had arrived.
