    Hi! This is my first album review, and only second post. If you could give me some pointer, I'd appreciate it!

    The great Alice Cooper! Master of shock rock, and amazing live shows!

    The album "Billion Dollar Babies" Is one of the band's best pieces of work, in my opinion. With tracks like..No More Mr Nice Guy, Billion Dollar Babies, and Raped And Freezing, this album will please any classic rock fan!

    Track Listing
    1. Hello Hooray

    2. Raped and Freezin'

    3. Elected

    4. Billion Dollar Babies

    5. Unfinished Sweet

    6. No More Mr. Nice Guy

    7. Generation Landslide

    8. Sick Things

    9. Mary Ann

    10. I Love The Dead

    This album went to number one on the Billboard 200 (even though number 1 doesn't make the album the best, it shows it's at least decent!)

    For anyone who doesn't know any work of Alice Cooper, this is a great place to start. I'd personally recommend No More Mr Nice Guy to start out with.

    Thanks for reading my review!

    Way to jump right into the spirit of things, Yardbird. :good (I added a picture of the album cover for you by the way).

    I know a lot of people consider this the Alice Cooper band's opus and I can't say that that's unreasonable, though I do prefer "Love It To Death" myself. It took "Dark Side Of The Moon" to knock this monster (pun definitely intended ;)) of an album off the #1 spot on the charts. :grinthumb

    Thanks for adding the picture. I'll have to incorporate that in other reviews, and stuff.

    Not a bad review at all.

    For pointers, just make sure you tell what you like/dislike about the album and why. Some people go through each song, but it takes a bit if time and you don't have to if you prefer short reviews. For me the fun is comparing notes with others to see what each person sees in a particular album, so I try to be as descriptive as I can.

    I have a few questions regarding your feelings on this album.
    - What is your favorite song? Is it "No More Mr Nice Guy"?
    - Do you like his voice, instruments, lyrics, or everything?
    - Any weak tracks on the album?
    - Give me a score out of 10 on how you place Billion Dollar Babies.

    Your posting has caused me to want to listen to a few Alice tracks, and that is generally what a positive review is supposed to do. Just keep writing..the more you do it the easier it gets. Do another!
