Editors’ Notes

The title track is such an entrenched radio and graduation classic that it throws off balance everything put in its way. Yet in 1972, Alice Cooper was still technically a group and not the sole province of its lead singer Vincent Furnier, and the band’s collaborative spirit can be heard throughout. School’s Out became the group’s best-selling album to date, yet its title track aside, none of the other tunes were so immediately accessible. Instead, following in the success of Love It To Death and Killer, the group decided to stretch their creative reach to include an eclectic mix of Broadway, jazz and progressive rock orchestration. Less hard rock than its predecessors, its tunes remain among the most subtle and inventive in the band’s catalog. “Gutter Cats Vs. the Jets” and the instrumental “Grande Finale” have Broadway stars in their eyes, while “My Stars” is a piano-based epic that anticipates the Springsteen/ Meatloaf teen anthems of the future. “Blue Turk” aims for decadent nightclub jazz, while “Alma Mater” is a freaky, modernist tune with a cool, grainy lead vocal. Quite a variety of unexpected things going on here.

Customer Reviews

As good as the Beatles.

The greatest rock album to date , only rivaled by Love It To Death, Killer , Billion Dollar Babies and Muscle of Love . Another flawless Ezrin Cooper Group co-op. None of you remember the pop crap that was filing the airwaves when Cooper hit with it's sarcastic transgender smile and bag full of black taboo thoughts. This album came with pink paper panties around the album. This is a tour de force and brilliant. I saw this live in Toronto and it was , god incredible. Ode to West Side Story tunes like Gutter Cats Vs Jets , Alma Mater, suggestive necrophilia tunes like Blue Turk and songs about being a total reject like Public Animal are all up to the albums lead track , Schools Out. God , just buy it ! And for all you kiddlies that don't remember , Alice Cooper was a BAND , not a person. The day they broke up and Alice went on his own was the day the Cooper group was over. Ezrin later hired guitar geniuses and super musicians to back Cooper but never achieved ANYTHING close to the original albums. No , I am not associated with them, I just know the music , I lived it. Alice Cooper was Neal Smith, Michael Bruce, Glen Buxton and Dennis Dunaway.

title track is over rated, album is underrated

I hate the song "School's Out" - no biggie, they wrote it in like five minutes so they're excused. The rest of this album is pure heaven. Every song is amazing. Even if you hate the title track or think you hate Alice Cooper, you've never heard anything like this album and you'll love it. This was the band at their musical finest. If you crossed their first two experimental/psychadelic albums with the polished billion dollar babies, and through in a dash of play-it-if-it-feels-good "Love it to death" you might get this... except this is better.

Originally, there was a band called Alice Cooper led by a singer named Vincent Damon Furnier. Under his direction, Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical and violent brand of heavy metal that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, heavy metal, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood, and huge boa constrictors, all coordinated by the heavily made-up Furnier. By that time, Furnier had adopted the name...
