"A magnificent effort." — Creem Magazine
Muscle of Love is the seventh studio album by Alice Cooper and it was the last
album to feature the entire original band, and it was a true grand finale at that.
Cooper stated in an interview at the time that the album marked a return to a basic
rock sound. "It's not complicated in any sense...It's very basic rock 'n' roll throughout."
The two best-known tracks are undoubtedly the Top 20 anthem "Teenage Lament '74,"
which features none other than Liza Minnelli, Ronnie Spector, Labelle and the
Pointer Sisters on backing vocals, and the rollicking title track. But other
tracks are just as good - the Led Zep-stomping opener, "Big Apple Dreamin' (Hippo),"
the gentle "Hard Hearted Alice" (a precursor to Cooper's future ballad-oriented
direction), the raging "Working Up a Sweat," and "Man with the Golden Gun."
The 1973 release climbed to No. 10 on the Billboard 200 and as Alice stated the
recording was a return to the band's more hard rock roots complete with the
prog-rock/heavy metal workouts synonymous with the Alice Cooper legacy.
