"Halo of Flies" has to be one of the greatest rock songs ever written. This disc rules!

This is a great Cooper album. It's one of my favorites. It's rough, tough and raw... the way Alice Cooper is supposed to be.

This album is much better than the over-produced stuff that Alice began releasing shortly afterwards.

For 1971, this album was unusually hard, heavy and scary. It rips first with "Under my wheels" (lyrics) with Alice holding nothing back. "Be my lover" (audio clip) written by Bruce, is a semi-bio of Alice himself. "Desperado" (TAB) has one of Alice's rare low register vocals, also receives radio airplay now and then. There is, of course, controversial issues regarding this album. The original record sleeve had a poster/calendar of Alice being hung with a noose. "Dead Babies" had critics tearing at the band (more or less the song title, but they ignored the meaning in the lyrics). Every song (all of 8) is genuinely crafted. I've always recommended this album, especially on one of those deserted island lists.
