ALICE COOPER / Killer (1971)

The Alice Cooper band’s second album of 1971 is even better than the previous one.  They kept Bob Ezrin as producer, which was a smart move; all their best work has been with Ezrin.  Half of this album still makes it into live shows.
Alice (the man) takes on a number of different roles, revelling in the theatrical aspects of being a performer.
The Hollywood silver screen influences become more prevalent.
Parents, before you start spitting fury about the song entitled Dead Babies, listen to the lyrics.  You might just save yourself some embarrassment.
