ALICE COOPER / Love it to Death (1971)

Alice released two albums in 1971; this was the first.  It was a pivotal album that introduced the sound that would define them for many, many years: snide rock n roll, teenage rebellion anthems, and lyrics that had something to say.
Black Juju is often cited as one of his worst tracks but I can think of a lot worse; the similarity to Pink Floyd’s Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun wins me over, and I’ll defend it even while sober.
The highlight for me is the catchy Ballad of Dwight Fry; it’s so good.

Songs of Note: Is It My Body; Ballad of Dwight Fry
