Description

On November 27th 1971, the original Alice Cooper band released an album that would define a generation and inspire countless more. It was the second LP they released that year, coming hot off the heels of ‘Love it to Death’ in March which contained the unlikely teenage anthem ‘I’m Eighteen’. Alice Cooper were finally living up to the expectations and potential they had shown on their first two psychedelic tinged records released through Frank Zappa’s label the previous years.

But the band still had it’s detractors. There were many in the music industry that couldn’t see past the shock, make-up, theatrics and headline grabbing scandals. With ‘Killer’, you can hear a band at the top of their game but also with a point to prove.
