""Love it to Death" is just a great rock album. You have the major label debut of a truly unique band, with songs that still sound new and original today. You have heard "Eighteen" hundreds of times by now, but if you haven't heard the entire album, then you are denying yourself a true musical treat. Most of the elements that made the Alice Cooper band such a popular 70's act are in place here. Alice is in top form vocally, Glen Buxton and Michael Bruce layer each song with such distinctive guitar work, every track becomes memorable. Neal Smith's drum work is, as always, the driving force behind these classic songs, and thanks to Dennis Dunaway's fantastic bass work, you have an album that is a must have for your rock collection. Every song on this disk is great. But the two songs that standout to me on this CD are "Black Juju" and "Ballad of Dwight Fry". These are the two longest cuts on the disk, and both are so original that only the Alice Cooper band could perform them. If you only discovered Alice later in his solo career, do yourself a favor, and be sure to go back and check out the original bands releases, and be sure to pick "Love it to Death" up right away, you won't be disappointed. I recommend this album to all Alice Cooper fans, classic rock fans, in fact if you have ears...buy this disk."
Can it get any better than this?

"LOVE IT TO DEATH was the first ALICE COOPER Lp I ever bought. And from there, I bought them all. But LOVE IT TO DEATH still remains my favorite. Captivating from the start and not a bit of filler. Alice and Company had the talent and the vision...not to mention a lot of balls. I listen to copycats of today like Marilyn Manson and right away I miss the versatility that the original ALICE COOPER band had in the early days before ALICE went solo. They incorporated blues, jazz, even songs styled after Broadway showtunes...and it was all rock and roll to us. In contrast, Manson's flair for the industrial side of rock and roll seems pale in comparison. ALICE knew what he was doing. Manson can bash on Christianity all he likes...but he'll never have the shock value of ALICE COOPER no matter how scary he makes himself up. Here's to a real rock and roll pioneer! The copycats only get louder and uglier...but ALICE had real talent. And LOVE IT TO DEATH was only the beginning of what was to come. Two previous efforts, PRETTIES FOR YOU and EASY ACTION were ok, but LOVE IT TO DEATH was the first time the masses stood up and took notice. And for all the talk about his stage show, his records were every bit as good as his live performances. Which is something you can't always say about KISS. Click "buy it now"...you won't be sorry."
The best album ever released by the Alice Cooper group.

"I bought this LP in early 1971 soon after it was released, after hearing selections from it played on the radio. The improvement in musicianship and composition was dramatic from the previous releases. EVERY song on this LP is well-written and well-performed, and highly memorable. You hear it and just want to sit and listen to it time and time again, and it still sounds fresh 28 years after it was was released. Of the two albums that followed, "Killer" is OK and "School's Out" is also a pretty good album, both with a lot of good tracks, but "Love It to Death" is the real gem. Now, why hasn't the record company looked in their vaults & upgraded this album by remastering it & including some alternate takes and live versions of the songs thrown in as bonus cuts?"
