About this deal

And it sees Alice rollin’ hastily outta bed out from under a mountain of empty Budweiser cans, applying his smeared, runny mascara all around his glazballs with a clawed, talon’d hand then running his fingers through his ratty, knotted black mane, quickly hooking Katchina the snake ‘round his neck, throws back the warm backwash from the last beer of the afternoon and he’s off -- And so are The Coopers, in full force for the duration of this airtight, upright and skintight rock’n’roll album. 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? However, he said that "[the album] falters after 'Under My Wheels' and 'Be My Lover', neither of them an 'I'm Eighteen' in the human outreach department.

The buzzsawing guitar bursts continue until the emergence of a twin guitar Quicksilver-type exposition so beloved of the group. Desperado” is a brilliant track and it brings side one to a perfect close with remembrance disguised as bravado. 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. 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.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Maybe it was considered to be not possible to manufacture (my LP calendar did fall off after a while of use) see photo or maybe the photo content may have not been very PC for 2023. The three alternative tracks do not differ greatly from the finished articles, just a little rougher round the edges. Alongside Welcome to My Nightmare, it is one of only two Alice Cooper albums where every song has been played live, although "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" has never been played since the end of the supporting Killer Tour, while "You Drive Me Nervous" was not played subsequent to the Killer Tour until 1999, and has never been performed since 2006. Celui qui a la chance de ne pas connaître cet album va prendre une bonne grosse taloche dans la tronche : 8 titres meilleurs les uns que les autres.

The Coop's 2nd release of 1971 following 'Love It To Death',WOW what a disc,superb from start to finish. 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.Desperado" was performed only once prior to the Trash Tour in 1989, but has been frequently played live since.

Liner notes Archived 2011-07-19 at the Wayback Machine from " The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper", Rhino Records Box Set, 1999, Catalog No: RHIN 75680. Although based on an in-flight meeting guitarist Michael Bruce had with the little old lady seated next to him, you gotta give the Coopers credit for being able to concoct something far more rock’n’roll into it; and it IS total Rock’n’Roll, by the way.Halo of Flies” was, according to Cooper’s liner notes in the compilation The Definitive Alice Cooper, 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.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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'. The song "Dead Babies" stirred up some controversy following the album's release, despite the fact that its lyrics conveyed an "anti-child abuse" message.Heavy metal band Iced Earth covered the song "Dead Babies" for their 2002 release Tribute to the Gods. It curls out with the hissing of cymbals until -- ZIP -- it cuts off right before the hypnotising guitar intro of the epic mindfuck that was, is and always be: “Halo Of Flies. According to an NPR radio interview with Alice Cooper, “Desperado” was written about Robert Vaughn’s character from the movie The Magnificent Seven. Live album sounds good not great, but is from such a magical period for the band I’ll take what I can get.
