Alice Cooper – School’s Out – 1972

I think this Alice Cooper album contains the most worn out title track of all Alice Cooper albums. It’s a good song, no doubt about that but I’m kind of sick of hearing School’s Out. It was a mega hit at the time of course and I don’t think there’s a compilation album out there without it. I’m sorry but I cannot stand it anymore. It’s a rock n roll anthem so successful that it’s...

Alice Cooper – Killer – 1971

Just like the previous record – Love it to Death – in Alice Coopers discography Michael Bruce is the one that contributes with the greatest rock songs. You might almost call the rock anthems. Well, that’s actually what they’ve become over the years. I mean, how often has Alice Cooper performed Under my Wheels or Be my Lover live from this album? That’s not the only great songs from Killer though. I think I’m in...

Alice Cooper – Easy Action – 1970

Just like Alice Coopers first album Pretties for You Easy Action was released by Frank Zappa’s Straight Records. It’s really hard to say what’s really the truth. But the first two albums were released at least, that’s a fact. Both albums are pretty out there in my opinion but Easy Action is more settled down than its predecessor. And of course, compared to the great late Frank Zappa himself, this is very easy listening. Everything is about...

Alice Cooper – Pretties For You – 1969

I discovered Alice Cooper in the mid 80’s I think. DaDa was the first album I ever got in my possession. I guess Constrictor was the next one after that and from that day I knew I needed to have every album made by this dude. It never occurred to me that Alice Cooper once wasn’t a guy but a whole band. There were five members of the group and they all contributed to the...

Dennis Dunaway Project – Bones in the Yard – 2006

The first you hear when you put on the album and play it is something I would call oriental scales. It’s something you can’t put together with the original Alice Cooper Band sound or with one of its original members. It’s not a bad thing, quite the opposite in fact, but nothing to be expected at all. Soon you are totally in unison with the music and there’s a lot of interesting listening. It’s music...

Alice Cooper – Muscle of Love – 1973

This album has been over shadowed by other successes to say the least. That doesn’t mean that Muscle of Love isn’t a good album, it is! It’s the last one with the original band with themes of teenage angst and all that. As a theme album, it’s kind of brilliant. The cover art was really cool on the vinyl album. It was delivered in a cart board box rather than a regular album sleeve. You...

Billion Dollar Babies – 1973 – The first masterpiece

I’ve been an Alice Cooper fan for over 30 years. That makes me feel kind of old but never mind that. I know some people have been fans for an even longer period so that makes them…even older. The first album I bought was the atypical Da Da and after that it was Constrictor I think. After that everything exploded and I knew I needed to own every single album. It wasn’t that hard to...
