Looking After Number One

Alice Cooper:
School's Out (Warner Bros.)

"A dramatic, exciting production, destined to be a Number One hit and one of the great rock classics. Much as I dislike them, it has to be said, the record is effective. If there has to be Alice Cooper as decreed by the record industry, is it permitted to listen and not look?"
(Number One for three weeks, August - September 1972)
