This album ranks among Alices best. The title track is brilliant and totally timeless. The whole school concept works really well including the bits from west side story. Blue Turk works really well with that sleazy sax sound but the highlight for me is My Stars.... What a brilliant track one of his best ever from the piano intro to the fast rock guitar solo's and agressive singing to the lines taken from 'day the earth stood still' this track is just awesome. Why has he not performed it live since the billion dollar babies tour... oh well that's life and this excellent album gets five stars

Almost 40 years on, I can still clearly remember the moment I bought this album on vinyl. I was 14 and had dragged my mother into the record shop. I remember the shock on her face and my embarrassment when I opened the gate sleeve cover to find the album encased in a pair of pink panties. Of course the title track became a huge hit and deservedly so but it is a gem amongst other gems on this album Luney Tune, Gutter Cat Vs The Jets, My Stars, Public Animal #9, Alma Mater. All Alice classics.

Even the cover brilliantly designed to look like a school desk which opens to reveal the desk contents and the liner notes disguised as a school quiz, is simply wonderful. It's one of the few original vinyl albums I still have from my teens and apart from the wonderful music has so many memories attached, like the look on my poor mothers face.

Of course, for those of us who have been listening to Alice Cooper's classic early 1970s albums (the ultimate masterpiece Killer, the slightly lesser School's Out and again the slightly lesser Love It To Death and Billion Dollar Babies) for 40 years(!), it comes as no surprise to realise that Vincent Furnier and associates have in their time written some majestic and (perhaps unexpectedly) sophisticated songs. Those contained on Alice's 1972 album School's Out are a case in point. Best known (of course) for the hit single title song, this is something of a concept album (with a running theme of teen/school-age rebellion) and contains a brilliant mix of large-scale (almost stage musical dimension) songs and more intimate, lyrical songs.

Along with Alice and his band (Michael Bruce - guitar, Glen Buxton - guitar, Dennis Dunaway - bass, Neal Smith - drums, I list them merely to ensure they receive due recognition) much of the credit for this (and other Cooper) albums must go to producer Bob Ezrin. For me, Ezrin easily reached his creative peak (if indeed producers reach such things), with these four early 1970s Cooper albums. On School's Out, the production values are stunning. Cooper, Ezrin and Co. make spectacular use of full orchestral and (at times) big-band jazz arrangements on the West Side Story-inspired songs Gutter Cats vs The Jets (a satirical take on the musical's gang warfare) and Grand Finale (both songs lifting some of Leonard Bernstein's musical themes). Similarly, the seminal album title song and the Cooper/Ezrin composition My Stars continue with the large-scale sound arrangements.

But, for me, the album reaches its creative peak on the remaining four songs, each song in its own way something of a minor masterpiece.

Hi i had this album on vinyl and it was glorious. i was hoping this 2008 version was going to be a remaster but it isnt. it is a Flashback version and not remastered. this isnt really clear in the blurb and as you can buy a lot of classic albums remastered for a fiver or so took the chance. it still sounds good as its such a good album but not a remaster.********
its no good i had to buy the 24 carat gold remaster and it is sublime. its seems to have the weight,breath, space and three dimentionality (is there such a word)of the origional album. you can even hear some of the busier tracks compress. fantastic. quite immotional in a way because remasters seem to bring out the details you proberly could hear on vinyl as a young teenager before your ears got hammered by drills, guitars, motorhead and shouting children
i found it in the uk on a well known auction site at a very good price. buy the cheap one for the car and the remaster for best at home. if you love this album get the remaster you will not be disapointed

Wasn't sure what to expect as haven't heard this stuff for years, but was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. Wasn't really a massive Alice fan back in the day, but have grown into them of late and really enjoy this album.

Alice Cooper's(the band) first album in the big time, or well the album that made them hit the big-time. The previous two albums set the stage for this one, and they certainly did deliver! The stage show is one thing, but without solid music to back it. The show would not have been the excellent theatrical event it was. School's Out simply screams a classic album, it has near enough everything one could expect from Alice Cooper. Heavy riffs, to clever lyrics, and the hit single title track!
