Description

Released in 1971, KILLER was the fourth studio album recorded by the founding quintet of singer Alice Cooper, lead guitarist Glen Buxton, rhythm guitarist/keyboardist Michael Bruce, bassist Dennis Dunaway, and drummer Neal Smith. Tellingly, the last lyric in the song is “you never will understand” and by this point if you’re still trying to comprehend the lyrics you’re trying too hard because the point of Alice Cooper’s best albums are just to suspend disbelief and go along quietly and no one will get hurt (Except Alice, but he’s the professional here. The doomy bass line of Dennis Dunaway runs counterpoint to the dank, Leslie-amplified guitar of Michael Bruce as Alice gently intones the sad tale of a lost little one.

Desperado" was performed only once prior to the Trash Tour in 1989, but has been frequently played live since. Punk icons Jello Biafra and the Melvins covered the song "Halo of Flies" on their 2005 release Sieg Howdy! 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. Killer" is probably Alice Cooper’s boldest stroke ever and is in your face for most of its running time.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'. 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. Killer is the third-most-represented album in Alice Cooper's concert setlists behind Welcome to My Nightmare (1975) and Billion Dollar Babies (1973), accounting for 13. 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. Desperado”, along with “Under My Wheels” and “Be My Lover” have appeared on different compilation albums by Cooper.

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. The remainder of the album casts itself into a single journey crossfaded into parts unknown, much like the gothic run-in of “Second Coming”/”Ballad Of Dwight Fry” from their previous LP, “Love It To Death” (and like those two aforementioned tracks, were not banded separately on album.Along with the singles “Under My Wheels” and “Be My Lover,” the record also includes “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,” “Desperado,” and the prog-rock-inspired epic “Halo Of Flies.
