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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
