Format: LP Record
Step right up folks to a mighty fine looking piece of vinyl. This Cooper platter really is one to own on vinyl. The sounds thanks to producer Bob Ezrin are rich and deep. The packaging is gorgeous, gatefold sleeve and nice big booket and all.

The LP bonus track is a little staggering, though. A Bob Ezrin construction called "Flatline", it consists of the sound of a hospital heart monitor beeping and flatlining for 3 minutes and 30 seconds, with electronic sounds and music in the background. The only real bonus to this bonus track, perhaps, is that it pretty much conclusively answers the disposition of the album's main character. His fate, left somewhat ambiguous in the final vocal song, "I Gotta Get Out Of Here", is sealed.

Strictly musically speaking, this album will be very welcome to long-time die hard Alice Cooper fans. At long last, we have Welcome 2 My Nightmare. Yes, it really does harken back to the Alice Cooper sound of old. Yes, you can definitely tell when members of the original band are playing. Yes, these songs are very diverse. In fact Alice's sounds from many eras are revisited: disco Alice, rocker Alice, campy showtunes Alice, a slight nod and a wink to the stone ages and some Zappa-like inspiration. There's even surf-rock in "Ghouls Gone Wild", and elsewhere, a Kip Winger cameo. Unfortunately there also a bit of a modern touch: an unfortunate cameo by talentless musical saboteur, Kesha, and some electronic effects that I wasn't too into.

Regardless, Alice and Ezrin (let's give credit where credit is due, Ezrin is the George Martin of this album) have created here a modern masterpiece, a great record to cap Alice's modern career with one more undenialble winner.

Great follow up Sept. 14 2011

Great follow up the the original nightmare. Has true classic Alice sound. Great story. Alice show his usual creativity and tongue in cheek lyrics. The guest appearances also add a lot of flavor. Two thumbs way up"
One Hell of an Album Jan. 19 2012
By Mortypie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: LP Record
It's important to note in my review that I'm in my 20's and have been a Cooper fanatic since my freshman year of high school. I've listened to almost every song he's produced and own most of his albums, and always get a little giddy when he announces that he's working on new material. That being said, when he announced that his new album was going to be a sequel to Welcome to my Nightmare, one of my absolute favorite albums, I had some high expectations, especially after being a little let down with Along Came a Spider, the album he produced prior to this one. Then he announced that the title would be "Welcome 2 My Nightmare," which scared me a little bit. The original was dark, intriguing, and a little trippy from time to time, and adding "2" to replace the "to" in the title felt a bit... off. I went into my first listening of the album not entirely knowing what to expect, but with a few ideas of what I'd like from it, and I was completely blown away, but not in a way I thought I'd be. Welcome 2 My Nightmare is still dark and intriguing, but where the original album took a more serious approach, 2 runs in the complete opposite direction and is so fun, clever and ridiculous that I can't help but love it. Songs like "Disco Bloodbath Boogie Fever" and "Last Man on Earth" and many more tracks on this album feel so un-Alice Cooper that they end up fitting right in. After the sublimely powerful "I am Made of You," the album becomes a roller coaster ride of ridiculousness, and I love every minute of it. The whole album is just as much of an experience as the its predecesor was 36 years ago, even if that experience is strikingly different. As cliche as it is to say this, they really don't make them like this anymore, and it goes without saying that this have become one of my all time favorite albums. If you're an old Coop fan or new to his material and are looking for an album to kick start your library, you owe it to yourself to invest in Welcome 2 My Nightmare.

And if you can, definitely go for the vinyl.
Good for old fans and new Sept. 19 2011

For long-time fans of Alice, this album reminds me alot of Last Temptation in terms of feel and atmosphere... musically, it sounds more like the Dirty Diamonds and Eyes of Alice Cooper era but with alot of Welcome to My Nightmare flavor and musical theatrics lthrown in. You can definitely tell Bob Ezrin is at the helm, which is a good thing, Alice is so much more Alice with Ezrin than without him. I was deeply disappointed in Along Came a Spider, the story was great but the songs themselves were as blah and vanilla as anything Alice has ever done, this album is much more listenable as a whole or in individual pieces, there is a narrative but this time each song has its own unique personality, much like the songs on From the Inside did (one track, Last Man on Earth, features banjo, tuba, and violin).

Of course, the presence of founding members Dunaway, Bruce, and Smith and the guitar stylings of long-time collaborators Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner is worth the price of admission alone... but just to keep things unpredictable, there are also appearances by Rob Zombie, John 5, Vince Gill, and Ke$ha, among others. Each of these artists manage to make a contribution that fits in seamlessly, without seeming like they were pasted in for the sake of publicity.

Those unfamiliar with Alice but wanting to try should also find this album very accessible. It is a modern record with a modern sound but carries alot of the flavor of Alice's classic 70's records, so it's a safe bet that if you're new to Alice Cooper, and you like this album, you will probably like alot of his other material, both new and old. I'm giving this album 4 stars instead of 5 because 5 stars are reserved for albums like Killer, Billion Dollar Babies, and the original Welcome To My Nightmare.
Welcome 2 My Nightmare - Pure Alice Copper Oct. 17 2011
By Lucid Dreamer 23 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: LP Record Verified Purchase
From the opening track, "I Am Made of You" to the closing track, "The Underture." this is pure Alice Cooper. Great Cooper riffs, even greater Cooper Lyrics, this is what makes the legend. Alice draws you into his nightmare once again and takes you on the journey. Similar, yet different from the original nightmare. The musicianship is top notch and it was interesting to hear Vince Gill on a Cooper album. Apparently Ke$ha was a surprise to some, not knowing who she was it didn't matter to me one way or another, other than "What Baby Wants" is good song and a nice fit to the album. "When Hell Comes Home" is a dark song and could be on any Cooper album. "I'll Bite Your Face Off" believe it or not is a catchy hook and I found me singing along with it the first time I heard it, before the song was over. "Ghouls Gone Wild" is a fun song. I would love to see a Beach Video of that one! And of course, Bob Ezrin continues to bring his unique production skills to the table as he works so well with Alice all to make the Nightmare believable. I think you will like this album if you like pure Alice Cooper.
Welcome 2 My Nightmare Sept. 20 2011
By Pat P. - Published on Amazon.com

This album is a worthy sequel to the orginal. This album starts off strong with "I Am Made Of You" it gets better throughout I agree with the other fans here I think that "Under The Bed" should have been track 4 right after "The Nightmare Returns" which was just a cool little intro that I think could have been a great song as well but Under The Bed fits perfect right here. I like all of the songs the orginal lineup did especially "I'll Bite Your Face Off" I also love that the album has Alice doing different styles of music which I think he is the best around at doing. "What Baby Wants" is a great song and I really feel this one will be a hit off of the album. I also cannot get "Caffeine" and "I Gotta Get Outta Here" off my mind I find myself singing them at work all the time. I truly hope Alice does make it back to the top with this one because he is long ovedue. His work in this decade has been sadly overlooked because people look at one or 2 songs and base a review off of it. I own all of his albums and There is not a bad one in the bunch. I highly recommend this one as it is great fun!
