    Q (4/01, p.117) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Good old-fashioned songwriting craft....a potent reminder of why Alice Cooper were signed to Frank Zappa's Straight label in the first place..."
    Alternative Press (5/01, p.96) - "...This 1973 gem still sounds thrilling...due to the songs' grandiose tunefulness, the band's astounding performances and the singer's irrefutable charisma..."
    CMJ (3/5/01, p.15) - "...The live material...is frankly, a how-to-lesson in hard rock. The Coop's original band was one of the greatest, and is criminally underrated..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (5/01, p.122) - "...What's most apparent is the debt of the band's so-so strut owed to The Who: 'No More Mr Nice Guy' and 'Generation Landslide' were virtually Townshend by numbers, and Alice's vocals owed a huge debt to Daltrey's hoary bark..."

    Digitally remastered by Dan Hersch and Bill Inglot (DigiPrep) and by Brian Kehew and Bill Inglot (November 2000, Capitol Studios).
    While their theatrical stage show (which featured the singer getting his head chopped off by a guillotine) may have made Alice Cooper a household name, the material on BILLION DOLLAR BABIES is so exceptional there is no danger of the music being overshadowed by gimmicks. The album became Cooper's biggest selling release, but it would prove the last effort by the original incarnation of the Alice Cooper band (who would up split a year later). But the group hits the mark completely here, combining the raw garage rock of earlier albums with a glossier production, but with plenty of edge, grit, and sleaze still at the music's core.
    While mission statement "No More Mr. Nice Guy" is the best-known song, the rest of the album is just as strong. The title track features a backing vocal by Donovan and a mammoth backbeat from drummer Neal Smith, while sweet melodicism plays an important role in "Generation Landslide" and "Mary Ann." Cooper's rock-and-shock aesthetic can heard in the future concert staples "Sick Things" and "I Love the Dead," giving the sleek sound of the album a wonderfully seamy underbelly. Pound for pound, this is probably Cooper's finest release, and remains one of the true cornerstones of the '70s hard rock canon.
