All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Alice Cooper wasted little time following up the breakthrough success of Love It to Death with another album released the same year, Killer.

    Truly a KILLER album

    Love It To Death was great, but Killer is a step better. This one has it all, from straight out rock tracks to Gothic signatures Killer from The Alice Cooper Group is a defenate must have for any Alice Cooper fan, young or old.
