This was the first Alice Cooper solo album and undoubtably his best. All eleven tracks are flawless and it's an album that just gets better and better with age. The title track is the perfect opening number, then Vincent Price works his horror magic on the track "Devil's Food" which segues brilliantly into "Black Widow". Track four is the jazz rocker "Some Folks" which delves into cannibalism while "Only Women Bleed" is a beautiful ballad that deals with spousal abuse. "Department of Youth" is an anthemic rocker which is essentially about rebellion. The black humour of "Cold Ethyl" deals with necrophilia while the "Steven" trilogy ("Years Ago", "Steven" and "The Awakening") is fittingly creepy. Brilliantly weird throughout. I was hooked on this from the moment I saw Alice performing the title track on the Muppet Show!
