ALICE COOPER / Billion Dollar Babies (1973)

Billion Dollar Babies is the album on which the Alice Cooper band achieved perfection. It's rock n roll Alice style, with theatrical guitars, classic solos, the piano is never far away, and there's even cowbell!
Alice's vocals play games with the listener, a technique that he would use many times thereafter. It's also the album that really exposed the sick side of his brain, which is something that had been touched upon in previous albums. Songs about the apocalypse, dentistry and loving necrophilia have never been so much fun.

Songs of note: I Love the Dead; Billion Dollar Babies
