4.0 out of 5 stars The Nightmare Continues... Sept. 14 2011
By Kasey G TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
While the extravagant price tag has kept me from splurging on Alice Cooper's "Old School" box set out a few months back, this sequel to his 1975 debut solo album "Welcome To My Nightmare" is a great (and more affordable) alternative. Here Alice teams with producer Bob Ezrin who helped put the original ACG on the map with "Love It To Death" forty years ago.

The eerie piano line from the original album's "Steven" opens the CD and immediately establishes a sense of continuity. There are little bits here and there that hark back to the original which longtime fans will appreciate. "The Nightmare Returns" is a short musical interlude that also borrows from "Steven" and the closing track "The Underture" features instrumental bits of the songs from the original 1975 "Nightmare" album and is a fitting end.

I could have done without the vocoder on "I Am Made of You", who's militant drumming and pace is reminiscent of "Second Coming".

Highlights include the frantic "Runaway Train" (co-penned by original bassist Dennis Dunaway)

"Last Man on Earth" has the '30s vibe that older tracks like "Mary-Anne" possessed.

The rockers include "Caffeine", "The Congregation", '60s beach-party-inspired "Ghouls Gone Wild" and the silly "I'll Bite Your Face Off" (which Neal Smith co-wrote).

Two contemporary numbers are the Lady Gaga-like "Disco Bloodbath Boogie Fever" and "What Baby Wants" (but I really could have done without the Ke$ha cameo because I listen to Alice to escape the current trashy automatons like her).

"Something To Remember Me By" is the album's ballad on par with "You and Me", "How Ya Gonna See Me Now" or "I Never Cry" but not as sappy, yet not as brilliant as "Only Women".

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome 2 a Worthy Sequel Sept. 18 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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. Welcome 2 My Nightmare contains a few musical interludes and clues from the first Nightmare, particurly "Steven", but it's mostly it's own beast. It is surprisingly listener-friendly, very melodic and 70's sounding with plenty of instrumentation and production value.

The prime influence here seems to be musicals and showtunes. And that's fine with me. Alice knows he's doing and sneers his way through these snappy numbers. Everything builds and changes and builds again, each song is constructed masterfully. Alice and Ezrin know what they're doing. Don't forget these are the guys who did "Gutter Cat Vs. The Jets" back in 1972.

My favourite tune: The Tom Waits-ish "The Last Man on Earth", a 1930's sounding showtune-esque classic, along the lines of Alice's previous song "Crazy Little Child" from Muscle of Love.

4.0 out of 5 stars ALICE REINCARNATE Feb. 28 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album bridges the 40 some years since the first "Welcome To My Nightmare" was released, and it does it perfectly. Some of the tie-ins are obvious, and some that only a lover of that first album will be able to connect. My son, who rarely appreciates "our time" music, scoffed at another return of Alice. However, after he had to listen to it twice (due to his procimity to the stereo) was lauding what a great album this is. I agree! Put this album on your at least must listen to, if not on your must purchase list. You will enjoy it for what it is!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue Nov. 19 2011
By Krodek
Format:Audio CD
I started listening to Alice with the first Nightmare album in and or around 1974. My dad liked it so much, he broke it. I liked it so much, I bought another and still play it regularly today. Nightmare is a classic and considering the dramatic change of musical gears from the previous band and Billion Dollar Babies, it is startling.
When I first listed to Nightmare 2, I was a little confused as to the connection on some levels to the first album. However, after reading the liner notes, the lyrics and listening to it a few more times, I have developed a great appreciation for it.
A major surpise for me was the fact that several songs are with Alice and the old band. Dunaway, Bruce and Smith are once again performing and writing on an album with the Coop. As well, Alice brought in Ezrin, who produced the first album and played keyboards as well. A lot of the old crew from years gone by are playing on the album, notably Steve Hunter who played on the original Nightmare album and tour. A huge guitarist when compared to Glen Buxton from the original band.
A particular highlight of the album for me was the duet between Ke$ha and Alice on "What Baby Wants". THis is a potential classic like the duet between Lita and Ozzy on "close my eyes forever". But this duet is driving and modern. Great vocals from both Alice and Ke$ha.
Guest appearance of Zombie as the carny huckster and John 5 as well as Kip Winger and many others. Great going Alice.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW
The way the songs sound in this record compared to the first one is somewhat eerie. This record has a sound that makes it seem that it is Part 2 of a huge rock concert. Read more
