If you ask any rock fan for the best album of 1971,your likely to get the following answer - Zep 4,Sabbath's Master of Reality or maybe At The Filmore by the Allman's,all are excellent choices as is this album 'KILLER'. Halo of Flies" was, according to Cooper's liner notes in the compilation The Definitive Alice Cooper (2001), an attempt by the band to prove that they could perform King Crimson-like progressive rock suites, and was supposedly about a SMERSH-like organisation. The Coop's 2nd release of 1971 following 'Love It To Death',WOW what a disc,superb from start to finish.

The Coopers first wrote one of the four-odd segments that comprise this headful epic whilst tripping out in the middle of the Arizona desert on mushrooms back in 1966, so no wonder it’s a rollercoaster ride to sweet oblivion if there ever was one; informed as it is by arid wasteland visions colourfully revealed in a disjointed, labyrinthine maze.

Cooper said in the liner notes of A Fistful of Alice (1997) and In the Studio with Redbeard, which spotlighted the Killer and Love It to Death (1971) albums, that the song "Desperado" was written about his friend Jim Morrison, who died the year this album was released. Live album sounds good not great, but is from such a magical period for the band I’ll take what I can get.

Disc 1 is the original album remastered and it sounds wonderful,every track a classic,who hasnt raised a fist in the, air head bangin to 'Under My Wheels',a garage rock classic as is the next track 'Be My Lover' before 'Halo Of Flies' ups the ante,Honestly this album is outstanding, 'Desperado ' slinks out of the speakers all dark and moody while 'Dead Babies revels in its shock tactics (misunderstood by most critics . Cooper said in the liner notes of A Fistful of Alice and In the Studio with Redbeard, which spotlighted the Killer and Love It to Death albums, that the song “Desperado” was written about his friend Jim Morrison, who died the year this album was released. He explained that "it brings all the elements of the band's approach to sound and texture to a totally integrated pinnacle that fulfills all the promise of their erratic first two albums" and that "each song on [the] album finds him in a different role in the endless movie he is projecting on them. Alice’s vocals are at their roughest and razor-gargled best on “Killer,” too: They scrawl all over “Under My Wheels” like the retardedly etched lettering on the cover and open up the proceedings with all the teenaged head rush of a highly anticipated Friday night concert just after racing directly home from school.

La remasterisation est impec (il faut avouer que le son de l'édition précédente était digne d'un clafoutis aux pruneaux éclatés au fond du cabas de mamie), et le show (issu de la tournée promo, je suppute) proposé sur le bonus disc est démentiel. The band played most of Killer during the concert, including “You Drive Me Nervous,” “Under My Wheels,” and “Halo Of Flies. First official release of a live set by the Alice Cooper band since the 2001's release of the deluxe edition of "Billion Dollar Babies", but certainly been worth the wait. Beginning with the same phased snare drums that Neal Smith employed on “Refrigerator Heaven,” double, roughhewn guitars of the utmost attack that push forward in nail-biting fretting-ness to underscore the same frustration Alice voiced in “I’m Eighteen” only reinforced by a low, authoritative refrain straight offa “Summertime Blues” when a parental unit laments: “Honey, where did we fail?

Dunaway’s zooming basslines, Smith drops in on a dime every time and Buxton burns down on a stuck riff much like he did previously at the end of “Ballad Of Dwight Fry” only here it’s even more of an ear-ringing, circular op-art pattern AND threatens to go on for even longer, if you can believe it. According to an NPR radio interview with Alice Cooper, “Desperado” was written about Robert Vaughn’s character from the movie The Magnificent Seven.

on the Billboard 200 album chart, and the two singles " Under My Wheels" and " Be My Lover" made the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Robert Christgau rated the album a B−, stating that "a taste for the base usages of hard rock rarely comes with a hit attached these days, much less 'surreal', 'theatrical', and let us not forget 'transvestite' trappings". And since Jim had just died months before in July, disinterring The Doors made sense as a poetic tribute. Packaging is good, but I would have preferred the track by track notes and essay in a booklet and more photos on the tri fold. The buzzsawing guitar bursts continue until the emergence of a twin guitar Quicksilver-type exposition so beloved of the group.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Vinyl pressings are so good these days that it's like listening to the clarity of CDs but with the warmth of analogue.Killer is the fourth studio album by American rock band Alice Cooper, released in November 1971 by Warner Bros. It slows down into the sudden calm of rapid drum rolls and funereal guitar slashing as cries and screams tear away in the background, then cryptic and near-confessional whispering. Steve Paul scenester/ex-McCoys guitarist Rick Derringer supplies rip-roaring guitar here and it sets up the rest of the album for off-the-cuff, sleazy racket-making perfectly. According to an NPR radio interview with Alice Cooper, "Desperado" was written about Robert Vaughn's character from the movie The Magnificent Seven (1960).
