Background: Released in 1972, Killer was the fourth album by Alice Cooper.

The album reached #21 on the U.S. album chart and #27 on the UK chart. gave Killer a 4 1/2 star review:

Alice Cooper wasted little time following up the breakthrough success of Love It to Death with another album released the same year, Killer. Again, producer Bob Ezrin was on board and helps the group solidify their heavy rock (yet wide-ranging) style even further. The band’s stage show dealt with the macabre, and such disturbing tracks as “Dead Babies” and the title track fit in perfectly. … With Killer, they became one of the world’s top rock bands and concert attractions; it rewarded them as being among the most notorious and misunderstood entertainers, thoroughly despised by grownups.
