"Killer" is the second album I hear from Alice Cooper. Like "Billion Dollar Babies", this one starts very good with "Under My Wheels" and the other songs are just forgetful. You could do better, Vincent.
8. Halo of Flies
7. Killer
6. Desperado
5. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
4. You Drive Me Nervous
3. Dead Babies
2. Be My Lover
1. Under My Wheels
One of Alice Cooper's bands best records. with track after track of great energy, wacked out experimentation and creative and fun lyrics that make this one of the defining records of the 70s.

Favorite Jam: Under My Wheels, Halo Of Flies, Dead Babies

Lest Favorites: Desperado
For many fans of the original Alice Cooper group, before Alice went solo (I am a bigger fan of solo Alice than the original band but many disagree) this is the most essential Alice album of the early band (though Billion Dollar Babies went to Number 1). The songs here rock. There is a rawness to this album with classics like Under My Wheels that make this album a must have. One of the truly great straight ahead hard rock albums.
Under My Wheels - 10/10
Be My Lover - 8/10
Halo of Flies- 7/10
Desperado - 6/10
You Drive Me Nervous - 7/10
Yeah Yeah Yeah - 7/10
Dead Babies - 8/10
Killer - 7/10

Overall Rating: out 60 of 80 = 75%
