Every great production deserves a sequel – even if comes 35-plus years after the original.

In 1975, Alice Cooper joined forces with longtime collaborator and producer Bob Ezrin to record his first solo album Welcome to My Nightmare, a theatrical concept album about the nightmares of a young boy named Steven.

I've been waiting for this album to be released for months; since Alice first tweeted about it way back when .... and it's worth the wait.

Since the original 'Welcome To My Nightmare' I've bought numerous Alice albums but it was always going to be difficult to beat that classic. Now let me be clear, 'Welcome 2 My Nightmare' doesn't match the original but it is the best album since without a SHADOW of doubt (in my opinion).

Clever clever start with the piano hook from 'Steven' (original WTMN album) leads into the excellent 'I Am Made Of You'. Up-to-date and a little 'Kanye' as the song begins

Track 2 ('Caffeine') is a strong rock track and then 'The Nightmare Returns' and the intro to 'A Runaway Train' promises touches of inspiration a la original WTMN ..... but slips into some solid but not memorable rock.

Banjo and oompah music are hugely entertaining in the brilliant 'Last Man on Earth' and then there's 'The Congregation'; love it!! LOVE ..... IT .... !!

The next three tracks are ok but the 10th track ('Something To Remember Me By') is a weak ballad I'm afraid; it feels like a placeholder, a poor substitute for a track that should have been a 'Only Women Bleed II'.

'When Hell Comes Home' is an edgy and GREAT track about the horrors of abuse and is followed by a good link up with Ke$ha (yes, I know ..... me too) in 'What Baby Wants'.

The next track is ..... bland but then it's followed by an instrumental medley from the original 'Welcome' album. Bonus track is a cover and is okay I guess.

So in summary I'd say four things: -

- This is a definite 4 *'s but I can't give it a '5' because it doesn't quite match the original 'Welcome' album.

It's been a long time since Alice Cooper, Godfather of theatrical shock rock 'n' roll, came up with anything that could be described as Classic Cooper.

In the 70's - on just about every album after the first two psychedelia and Zappa influenced releases - the Alice Cooper Band, then Alice Cooper the solo artist, were responsible for some of the best conceptual, diverse and greatest music in rock.
But for a man who once decided to Flush the Fashion the reality is that, for the last three decades, it's primarily been formulated 80's and 90's Trash 'n' roll and Millennium melodic metal.

There have been exceptions, such as 1994's The Last Temptation (a serious return to form) but the chances of Alice Cooper ever revisiting the classic era or recreating something quintessentially Cooper, seemed remote. At best.
But who could have dreamed...

Welcome 2 My Nightmare is, as the name suggests, a sequel or themed follow up to the classic 1975 original.
Cooper had at first considered a sequel to his 2008 album Along Came a Spider, but Bob Ezrin (producer and influence on just about every Alice Cooper release of the 70's) wasn't taken with the idea and the pair decided to go further back for inspiration and return to nightmare's past.

And good move it was too, because Welcome 2 is a startling return to form, diverse in content and themed around the nightmarish scenarios of the original without ever copying or rewriting that classic material. The Lyrics vary from dark and black to the thoughtful and downright funny.
Having Bob Ezrin back at the controls (and contributing to the writing and arrangements) has also paid dividends.

Since his 4th 'come-back' phase in 2000 Alice has produced a clutch of good to excellent albums - 'Brutal Planet', 'Dragontown', 'Along Came A Spider' and now this!

The title is something of a misnomer since the 'plot' really recalls 'Goes To Hell' and, like that album, the music is eclectic with a capital E! Alice is re-united with his old A.C. band mates, plus legendary producer Bob Ezrin, whilst there's a string of musical guest appearances.

The following is an updated assessment of the tracks, nearly three years after my initial review:

1. 'I Am Made Of You' ***** Shock, horror - Alice uses auto-tuned vocals!! Actually, this makes the track into a very effective anthem. It's an instant classic.

2. 'Caffeine' ***** An excellent rocker that has translated well into his stage show.

3. 'The Nightmare Returns' **** A short, yet effective, piece that uses some of the instrumental motifs from the original 'Nightmare' album.

4. 'A Runaway Train' ***** Very Bob Dylanish in its 'stream of consciousness' and no chorus. Terrific.

5. 'Last Man On Earth' ***** Alice tips his blood-encrusted hat here to Tom Waits. Excellent.

6. 'The Congregation' **** Glitter Band drums meet Oasis guitars with Lennon vocals on top. Rob Zombie's monologue is nowhere near as effective as Vincent Price's on 'Nightmare' though.

7. 'I'll Bite Your Face Off' **** I've got a bit fed up of this musical homage to The Stones/Who; it's good, but over-familiarity has bred a bit of contempt!

8. 'Disco Bloodbath Boogie Fever' **** What could have been a disaster actually ends up being rather inspired. Bonkers, in a lol way!
