4.0 out of 5 stars Part Rock Musical/Part Disco Alice Oct. 29 2011
Format:Audio CD
Told from the perspective of a disgusted straight-laced observer, "Go To Hell" opens Alice Cooper's second solo album with a bang. Delivering brilliantly self-mocking lyrics such as "You'd gift-wrap a leper and mail it to your Aunt Jane" with a wicked sneer, this is easily one of Alice's best solo offerings ever.

Though not as tight a concept album as "Welcome to My Nightmare", "Alice Cooper Goes to Hell" still maintains its theme with the '50s-style "Give the Kid a Break" a plea to Saint Peter to not sentence Alice to a lifetime in pergatory. The bongo disco-rocker "Wish You Were Here" ("It's pretty warm down here; but it ain't sunny") continues the concept and is irressistibly funky.

The cool, moody, bass-driven "I'm the Coolest" is a little too laid-back for its' own good but adds variety. "Guilty" is an average straight-ahead biographical rocker.

Alice discovers his inner Bee Gee on the disco-flavoured "You Gotta Dance" employing a surprisingly effective falsetto on the bridge. The cowbell on this one is an interesting touch. While Alice dips his toe in the then-current disco pool, ironically it screams "sell-out" less than the syrupy ballads that would be his bread and butter for the latter part of the decade. Said ballad on this album is the Top-40 smash "I Never Cry". While it's not as intelligent or edgy lyrically or musically as "Only Women", you can't help but sing along and it's not as saccharine as the future ballads "You and Me" or "How You Gonna See Me Now". "Wake Me Gently" is an even better ballad than "I Never Cry" and has a rock-musical feel that would have been a perfect finale for the previous album.

The cowbell makes a return appearance on "Didn't We Meet" which is as close to the old ACG as this album gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underplayed classic! April 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
After Welcome to my Nightmare, the Coop returned with this forgotten gem of an album. 1970's radio embraced the ballad "I Never Cry", (a lovely song that I've been known to belt out at karaoke nights), but the rest of the tunes are probably unknown to the casual Cooper fan. The best part of this album, as is the case with the better Cooper-concept albums, is that you can crank it up and visualise the story from beginning to end. I agree with another reviewer that this story is stronger than the Welcome to my Nightmare tale, and I would have liked to have seen Alice and Vincent Price reprise their roles in a TV special for Goes To Hell. Highlights are "Go To Hell", "I'm the Coolest", "Didn't We Meet", "I Never Cry", and "Guilty". I will warn that this is an album that takes a couple of listens before full appreciation. It's not classic Cooper-rock, but Alice never did allow for catagorization. Remember, Alice is the coolest!

2.0 out of 5 stars You can skip this one July 8 2014
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a crash after "Welcome To My Nightmare". By this point in his career he had already become a solo act. By the date of this release Alice had made four classic albums with the Alice Cooper group and one great solo album "W.T.M.N" then he crashed and burned with this one. It had one hit single "I Never Cry" which is a ballad. It sounds like Alice did not know what to do next. This is the sound of an uninspired man.
Despite Alice having a successful carrer to this day he has never come close to matching those five records. However he is still great live.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Last Great Album Aug. 17 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard "Goes to Hell" back in 1977. It was a very popular record as I recall. It never sounded as good as it did on vinyl on my old stereo. But, basically, it is a fantastic collection of songs. "Go to Hell," "You Gotta Dance," "I'm the Coolest," "Wish You Were Here," "Didn't We Meet," and "Guilty," changed my life. I became a music fan after hearing those songs. The other songs aren't good. But, for 6 life changing songs, this album is a should have. Some people believe that "You Gotta Dance" is some disco song or something. It could be worse: it could be Starbuck! I think it's a wonderfully sleazy song. It reminds me of simpler times when no one even had answering machines or push button phones or cable and President Ford lurked within our thoughts and 8mm news footage and no computers and stupid clothes and dark brown and big clunky cars and Alice Cooper: know what he did? He went to HELL! This album pointed to the exit....And now? It's over. All that remains is this record. God, it is good. So very good!! Thank you Alice, Dick, Shep, and Bob. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alice Cooper Goes To Hell July 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
I think this is an underrated album, even though I like the Alice Cooper group more than Alice Cooper solo, hes had his share of great albums (this being one of them) alone. I'm going to review it song by song rather than as a whole.
GO TO HELL- A great song, good lyrics, good guitars. 10/10
YOU GOTTA DANCE- I hate this song, I am almost sure it is making fun of disco, but I still would like it way more with a more rock sound. 4/10
I'M THE COOLEST- Very slow, not a great song not bad. 7/10
DIDN'T WE MEET- I think this might be the best song on the album, maybe later I'll say that too, but its a great song, CALSSIC! 10/10
I NEVER CRY- A great song, one of his ballads (which often really sucked, look to later solo albums) I think I even hear a touck of Pink Floyd type rock in here in the chorus (or however you spell that), not a bad thing in my book! 10/10
GIVE THE KID A BREAK- This song is only OK, I like it, but only becasue Im 14 and its talking from my point of view in an arguement with (Im guessing) my parents. 6/10
GUILTY- Best song on the album?? wait I already used that, well, its a tie! Good lyrics, no great lyrics! 10/10
WAKE ME GENTLY- I guess I dont like Alice ballads, but this song is good, similar to I never cry. 9/10
WISH YOU WERE HERE- Great song, not the best on the album though, maybe overrated. 10/10
I'M ALWAYS CHASING RAINBOWS- This song is complete crap, but maybe if you are into music from the 20s its OK, no it still sucks. 1/10
GOING HOME- We would have a third best song on the album (underrated) but Ill just say its a great song and since the lyrics arent as top notch as the other 2 nominees for best song on album, this looses, plus it is a little slower than most Alice Cooper songs.
