Taken from the NMMNG Tour, this is a really good set list. Are there tracks I wish he would have done? Of course. Do we really need another live version of "Poison" or "18"? Not really. But for what it is, this is a fun and worthwhile album. I saw him less than a month after it was recorded and the show was stellar.

The downsides, other than some glaring omissions of other classic songs, are two: First, the sound quality isn't nearly as good as prior live efforts, such as the last live DVD, "Theatre of Death". To me, it sounds like a soundboard recording. The audience is back in the mix, and at certain points some guitars sound more like background playing, rather than being higher in the mix, as a proper Alice show has them. But! Don't let that be a turn-off. It's not bad sounding, it's just not loud enough.

Second, the dreadful version of "Fire" - this is not Alice's cover of the Hendrix classic that he recorded in the 90s. Alice brought Arthur Brown onstage to do his tribute to pyromaniacs. Brown's voice sounds terrible, at best. Thankfully it's the last track on the second CD and easy to skip.

Again, though, this is a killer live album. "Brutal Planet" is heavy and, well, BRUTAL. The extended "Halo of Flies" is done perfectly, and the other tracks sound really good. The band, lead by one of Alice's old cohorts, Steve Hunter, is on top of its collective game. And Alice's voice is rough, as we like it, but much more in tune and listenable than "Theatre of Death", where he seemed to shout everything and lost track of the melody on many tunes. My advice is to buy this immediately.

Some have complained the production of the CDs aren't as solid as some of the previous live concert albums. That is clearly true. They aren't. That said, I saw this tour three times, and after purchasing the collection, I'm okay with the quality of the CDs. It's fine enough for me to sing each tune as they come on. And that probably is the definition of a good CD set if I ever heard one. Yeah, I probably won't listen to this collection as much as Theater of Pain or Brutal Planet, but it's not like this CD is going to go collect dust bunnies with the CDs I haven't listened to in the last five years. It's Cooper and it's a tour I saw three times!!! It's going to be a quality addition to my collection and it will hit the rotation plenty enough to make it well worth the purchase. I'm sure it'll remain as my primary car CD for at least another week as well.

Oh, and a neat twist for those who didn't see the tour. During it, of course, School's Out was played. However, it was mixed with a little "Brick in the Wall" as well, and it was cool to hear that live version of School's Out on here. Essentially, I wanted this to hear that version somewhere, to hear Clones live again, to hear I'll Bite Your Face Off live again and The Black Widow. For some reason I really liked how The Black Widow came out in concert during this tour. Love the live version of it on the Welcome 2 My NIghtmare album (a bonus song for many of us), and it's not as nice on this CD, but I still enjoy it. Also, Halo of Flies is included in the mix. So while there are many of the staple songs, there are still some new ones thrown in the mix as well.

It's a good mix of songs.

Oh, and what has been said about the "bonus" song - Fire - is true. It's terrible. The three concerts I went to "Elected" was the last song, and I don't feel like I missed anything not hearing "Fire."

Vincent Damon Furnier...that's "Alice" to you...serves up a two-CD memento from his October 29th, 2011 show at London's Alexandra Place. As you might expect, Alice knows what the fans came for. A little less than half of the 98-minute set, 10 songs, are drawn from the catalog of the original Alice Cooper band. There's one track from the new Welcome 2 My Nightmare, and three from the original Welcome to My Nightmare album. Alice's voice is a little more ragged around the edges than it was in his 70s heyday, ducking the occasional high note here and there, but for the most part it's not an issue. The only song that really falls flat is "Feed My Frankenstein," and that's because the original was so heavily produced and featured the dueling guitars of Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, while this one doesn't. Great to hear the song, but the original set the bar so high that it's impossible not to be at least a little disappointed.

The original show aired on U.S. and U.K. television, and was also sold on CD as an "instant live" release, so this isn't "new" to hardcore Alice fans. For everyone else, it's a romp through the hits. Three solid stars.

Show was recorded live on September 29, 2011 at the Alexandra Palace in London, UK. Simply cannot get enough of this 2-CD live release as I thoroughly soaked in the usual Cooper staples like "I'm Eighteen", "Under My Wheels", "Billion Dollar Babies" (still dig seeing this track played live - as Uncle Alice always tosses fake dollar bills - with his mug photo-shopped on the funny money - out to the crowd), "Only Women Bleed" [so glad he isn't played this ballad on his current trek], the modern-day Cooper classic "Feed My Frankenstein" and "Poison". Maybe it's just me but his new song "I'll Bite Your Face Off" kicks total ass. As I spun these discs for a third time in less than a week's time - I also loved hearing his (much welcomed) additions "Halo Of Flies", "Muscle Of Love", a tune that he hasn't played live in over thirty years now "Clones", a bit of "I Love The Dead", his anthem "School's Out" (never gets old, does it?) and a finale that I certainly did not expect - Arthur Brown stepping out on stage giving the appreciative crowd his 1968 smash hit "Fire". You can see this song on fan videos on You Tube. One thing I do not get is - why didn't Alice share a couple of line(s) from Brown's live performance of "Fire"? At least as must of a must-have as his 'Theatre Of Death' CD / DVD. Be sure to check out a couple of archive Alice Cooper live releases - 'Alone In His Nightmare' and 'Live in San Diego' of which I believe both these shows were initially broadcasted as FM live radio shows.
