Well, I gave the Other option for the albums.

Killer's your favorite album? Why?

Probably because of Halo Of Flies, that one song just drives me nuts when I hear it.

But it's also got some great tunes like Under My Wheels, Be My Lover, Desperado, You Drive Me Nervous, Dead Babies

original Alice Cooper band...by a fuckin country mile!

You make it sound like Cooper is a bad solo artist.

Or that the band was so good!

The band was absolutely superb. No doubt, but Cooper held his own as a solo artist. The first bit I heard of him was from the album "Hey Stoopid". I got hooked, went bought "Billion Dollar Babies", at first I was shocked HOW different it was, but then I fell in love with it. Personally I think Cooper has had a solid career ever since 69. With the exception of the albums released between 82-87, which sucked.

Love It To Death and Dirty Diamonds are his best albums. I voted Love It To Death.

His best song has got to The Ballad of Dwight Fry! When the Second Coming-outro is fading into the Dwight Fry-intro, chills run down my spine!

I have the entire Cooper catalogue (vinyl and cd...and some 8 tracks)..Alice was a great solo artist.

In my opinion nothing comes close to the original band...Alice jumped on a lot of bandwagons as a solo artist over the years...that's fine,lots of great material came out of it.

And I greatly respect him for shaking things up in his music,dabbling in different genres.

He's pretty much settled into a sound that tends to lean towards metal (and I don't mean the growling stuff...there's more to metal than just that).

But in their day,the original band was very cutting edge..as Alice has said "we were the band that drove a stake through the heart of the love generation".

They were a feared band in mainstream society...moreso than the hippie movement preceding them.

Nothing the solo Alice did matched what the original band achieved,on stage or on record.

(but that's not a band thing)
