Product Description

2011 release from the veteran shock rocker, the much-anticipated sequel to his 1975 masterpiece Welcome To My Nightmare. The album was produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (who suggested that it was time for Alice to finally create this much talked about sequel) and features a stellar array of collaborators including three tracks performed with members of the original Alice Cooper band. Universal.

From the Artist

"This is Alice's nightmare 35 years later," explains Alice, "Bob and I created this character and we know how to write for him. I play the part but we're not writing for me, we're writing for Alice. We kept the first 'Nightmare' album very personal to us, on this one we found more humor and we were more open. This was our world and we want to present it to the fans. The original album was my first solo album after all those huge hit records with the original band and now that nightmare is exposed, this one can be a little bit more open. The music crosses all sorts of boundaries; we went where the lyrics took us."

Welcome 2 My Nightmare is a train careening off the tracks in music styles, a great ride through the minds of sick things. The standout ballads I Am Made of You and Something to Remember Me By hold their own with Cooper's classics. And there is plenty of gritty, old-school rock and roll. After a couple listens, some of my early favorites are The Congregation, I'll Bite Your Face Off, and When Hell Comes Home. The album is an adventure and, like the best albums, gets better with repeated plays.

It's been more than 35 years since Alice Cooper's first `Nightmare' and, in that time, the music landscape has gone through some drastic changes. But Steven, the main character from the original LP, has stuck with Alice through thick and thin, making sporadic return appearances over the decades, culminating with his last album, Along Came A Spider, in which Steven evolved into the title character, a vicious serial killer... who was merely a figment of the demented lad's imagination.

With the long-belated return of Bob Ezrin to oversee the proceedings, "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" is a departure from the mostly-hard-edged sounds that musical chameleon Cooper's been churning out for a little over a decade. Like the original album, there are numerous radio-friendly pop songs as well as musical and lyrical oddities that only Alice could get away with. But does it work as a follow-up to his first solo album? Yes and no. But in my humble opinion, this is his best studio album since 1994's "Last Temptation," an album which was sort of a prequel to the original "Nightmare" and has never been recognized as the masterpiece that it is (thanks to the record company's complete and total mishandling of the release). Doesn't quite match the brilliance of either album, but it tags close behind.

"Welcome 2 My Nightmare" opens strong with the slow, haunting "I Am Made of You," which samples piano riffs from the original album. Unfortunately the song features an inordinate amount of Auto-Tune, which is a bit off-putting upon first listen.

Coming right off his long overdue nomination into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Alice Cooper offers us all Welcome 2 My Nightmare. Simply put, W2MN is Alice's best offering in decades. From the opening track of I am Made of You to The Underture, Alice gives people something new and yet eerily familiar that combines both elements of The first Welcome To My Nightmare and Alice Cooper Goes to Hell.

Final note, ignore the one star reviews. Seeing as how they're wrong and out of the loop and are just hating because they have nothing better to do.

All in all, thank you Alice Cooper & Bob Ezrin. It's great to see you again!

Right off the bat, I'd like to say that I am in love with this album and have listened to it non-stop for the past 24 hours. However, like some other reviews I've read, I had two minor problems with it to which I've found what some of you may agree to be a fine solution. First of all, the various editions and the bonus tracks. Of the seven additional tracks available, 3 are live versions and bare no real interest or impact on the album ("Poison," "No More Mr. Nice Guy," and "The Black Widow" live from Download Festival); 1 is a cover that is out of place on the album and pretty much redundant due to the fact that one of the closing originals is almost identical in title and intention ("We Gotta Get Out Of This Place"); leaving 3 original studio tracks that are the most essential ("Under The Bed," "A Bad Situation," and "Flatline.") The last of these selections is, to my knowledge, only available on LP so for now, it's a dead issue and will be left out from the following review and recommendation.

The second problem is arrangement of the songs and the fact that, at times, the album lacks the necessary progression of a concept album. After purchasing the album on iTunes (which not only gets you the bonus tracks for "A Bad Situation" and "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place," but also a very informative and entertaining 25 minute audio interview with Alice on the stories behind the tracks and the video for "I'll Bite Your Face Off") as well as purchasing the physical disc at Best Buy (whose exclusive version contains 4 bonus tracks, "Under The Bed" and all three live performances!), I had spent just over $20 and had every available tune sans "Flatline." Not too shabby. Now it was time to set the story straight.

I absolutely love this CD. I can't, or don't want to stop listening to it. What started out after first listen was what I thought was a very good CD with lots of really good songs. After the second listen I found some of the songs to be great, and now after many listens I love it and every song to me is very good or great. I have always been a Cooper fan since I was 15 and this is so Awesome to hear Cooper and Ezrin together again making such Awesome and fun music. Can't wait for the show, It's got to be Awesome and more. Thank You Alice!
