Editors’ Notes

This album is Mastered for iTunes. With the first Welcome to My Nightmare, Alice Cooper took his scathing shock rock and turned it into a conceptual showpiece. This sequel to the 1975 album brings together Cooper’s old-time producer extraordinaire Bob Ezrin and band veterans Dick Wagner, Steve Hunter, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith. The conceptual pieces are in place. “The Nightmare Returns” draws tinkling Edgar Allan Poe piano and Frankenstein-sized guitar riffs for a brief interlude in between the solid hard rock blasts of “Caffeine” and “A Runaway Train”, a track that sounds like the Rolling Stones’ “Live With Me” given a 2011 makeover. “I Am Made of You” jacks up the Auto-Tune. Ke$ha duets on the laser-pop of “What Baby Wants”. “Disco Bloodbath Boogie Fever” dismisses disco thirty-five years after the fact and with a pretty strong electro-pop groove. “Something to Remember Me By” is the power ballad that proves even a ghoulish monster has a heart.

Welcome 2 Alice Greatness

I became an Alice Cooper fan when I saw on MTV his 1986 Halloween concert from Detroit. I bought some of his back catalog, and discovered Welcome To My Nightmare, which soon became my favorite Alice Cooper CD, and in my All-Time Top 10 albums. When I learned Alice was making a sequel, I, at first, was excited, but then I felt dread - I didn't particularly care for Along Came A Spider (2008), and was afraid of something similar.

I was wrong. Thankfully I was very wrong... very very wrong.

I LOVE THIS CD - I listen to it nearly everly week. Each song is strong on its own, while Alice runs the gambit of genres, even having Ke$ha appear on one of the tracks, "What Baby Wants," which is my favorite track on the CD. Then there are the familiar piano parts randomly inserted to tie in the sequel to the original '75 Nightmare, but not to the point where it sounds rehashed. Plus the original Alice Cooper band plays on a few of the tracks, which is somehow fitting, since Welcome To My Nightmare was Alice Cooper's first solo record.

So many good things about this CD, one of Alice Cooper's best in his career, both as a solo artist and with the original band. An excellent piece of work from a true icon in the rock genre.

Originally, there was a band called Alice Cooper led by a singer named Vincent Damon Furnier. Under his direction, Alice Cooper pioneered a grandly theatrical and violent brand of heavy metal that was designed to shock. Drawing equally from horror movies, vaudeville, heavy metal, and garage rock, the group created a stage show that featured electric chairs, guillotines, fake blood, and huge boa constrictors, all coordinated by the heavily made-up Furnier. By that time, Furnier had adopted the name...
