When the remastered 'Billion Dollar Babies' came out, it was muted that the remastered 'Welcome To My Nightmare' was to follow, and here it is.
My only criticism of this remaster is, unlike the 'Billion Dollar Babies' remaster which had an extra cd, containing live material from the time as well as studio rarities, all we get here are three extra alternate version tracks.
What can't be understated though, is that quite simply, 'Welcome To My Nightmare' remains not only the best Alice Cooper album since the original group split up, but one of the best rock albums of the 1970's. An epic piece of concept rock featuring the musical macarbe character 'Steven', the climax of the album, but so much more in addition to one of the most disturbing songs ever written. Some of the finest guitar playing ever recorded from Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner, check out the riff on 'Devils' Food' and the solos on most of the tracks, with a production from Bob Ezrin to die for, (This man was to Alice what George Martin was to the Beatles!).
The black sense of humour on tracks like 'Cold Ethyl', boasting the lyrics "She's cool in bed, well she ought to be, coz Ethyls' dead!", provide light relief from really disturbing visions of insanity on 'Some Folks', and the previously mentioned 'Steven'. Ezrins virtuoso piano playing on both epics.
The title track sets the scene with haunting strings disorientating the listener, as if the lyric wasn't enough!, "We sweat and laugh and scream here, coz life is just a dream here, you know inside you feel right at home, welcome to my nightmare, welcome to my breakdown".Even the title of the ballad 'Only Women Bleed ' was shortened to 'Only Women' when released as a single, because the radio stations didn't like the menstrual connotations!

I was nine years old in 1975 and somehow I missed out on this great album (I liked the Wombles at the time).Now at 42 I finally get to hear an amazing piece of work.It never ceases to amaze me how some of my generation dismissed the 70's as a time of old dinosaur rock,hippy noodling and middle of the road soft rock tosh when there was such diverse and creative music around.Alice influenced the punks,the rockers,yet still manages to sound unlike anyone else here with a creepy cinematic rock opus of unparalled magnificance,or something like that.

This is the Alice album that has it all. No, really! "Schools Out" had the hit single and a couple of other good tunes but the rest of albums were always a bit "hit single and filler" style. This one was a return to the glories of "Killer" and has all the horror, humour and atmosphere that you could ask for. As well as housing some of the best tunes Alice had done for years.
Having ditched the original Alice Cooper Band (Bruce, Buxton, etc.) Vince (as his mum knows him) pulled together a dazzling array of session musicians - some of whom went on to tour the album with him. That would have been worth seeing.
This was also the first time he used Bob Ezrin as producer and those of you familiar with Pink Floyd's "The Wall" (also co-produced with Ezrin) will recognize some of the ideas from Welcome to my nightmare. Especially in the mini soap opera "Steven/Years Ago" - an everyday tale of "boy 's mind goes blank, boy wakes up in basement covered in blood and wonders where all his friends have gone". See? - classic Alice.
The album also features our first hearing of Only Women Bleed (later a hit for Julie Covington) and my own favourite "The Department of Youth". Listen for the fade out when Alice asks the kids who gave them the power. Donny Osmond? WHAT!!!
This is easily the most rounded and accomplished Alice Cooper album - all the fimiliar themes are there but bigger and better. Listen to "Cold Ethyl" - yes, it's as tasteless as you'd expect.
"Welcome To My Nightmare" would be worth the cash just to hear Vincent Price's talkover between "Devil's Food" and "The Black Widow".
Buy it and enjoy it in complete confidence. And marvel at how Marilyn Manson gets away with it. He's to Alice, what Oasis are to the Beatles.
Mike.

Alice's triumph. A dark,creepy, thrill a minute rock album which hits the heights at every turn.
A concept album of vaudeville horror, its camp, its scary & its superb. From the title track to the Vincent Price narration on "Black Widow", to the finger clicking "Some Folks",the raucous "Department Of Youth" & the eerie "Steven" this is a record that takes you on a journey to some unsavoury places.
This is not a record that is distasteful, its more like a 1950's monster movie or "Hammer House Of Horror" production, consigned to vinyl.
This is the album (& the show) that made the name synonymous with extravagance & excess.
There are a variety of styles on the album but it all seems to fit effortlessly,it really is a classic in every way.
