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 the 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, and the Hollywood silver screen influences become more prevalent. It's as good as its title suggests.
PS: parents, before you start spitting fury about the song titled Dead Babies, listen to the lyrics. You might just save yourself some embarrassment.
