A twisted, conceptual, bedtime story, for little Steven, this is such a great, yet vastly underrated, album. 1976, and Alice was on a roll after the mega success of his previous first solo record, 'Welcome To My Nightmare'; although, ironically, it was that success which sealed the fate of the original group, who were expecting Alice to return to the fold. Creatively, AC was firing on all cylinders, once again hooking up with Bob Ezrin, Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter, for his most Broadwayesque album, further expanding the musical palette of 'WTMN'.

It kicks off with the title track, as Alice has the mother of all nightmares, descending the staircase to a pit of fiery torments - Disco Hell!! A funky intro, chunky, slashing, guitars, and Alice bellowing: "For criminal acts of violence on the stage, for being a brat, refusing to act your age.... you can Go To Hell!" sets the scene for a fantastic unfolding tale. The sultry 'You Gotta Dance' is up next, again with funktastic rhythms and Alice languidly declaring that he's "so hot, it makes me shiver'. More funkiness, this time on the laid-back, yet sinister, 'I'm The Coolest' where Alice (dancing with Mr D?) declaims, rather than sings, that things "get hotter whenever I'm in town". Three wonderful opening tracks, with superb playing from the band, glitzy production from producer BE, topnotch singing from Alice, plus his trademark wit and dark humour.

The aching 'Didn't We Meet' - where Alice exhibits his best 'little boy lost' vocals - is followed by the all-time classic ballad, 'I Never Cry'; a huge international hit, whose lyrics reflected some of the 'behind the scenes' turmoil that Alice was experiencing, as the booze and the constant touring/recording began to wear him down.

One of the reasons that this album is not as loved as some of his others is that it followed the gigantic behemoth of Welcome To My Nightmare. It was going to be hard to top that. And, as it appeared, it was. Goes To Hell is not, though, at all a bad album. In fact it is one of his strongest records by way of the content that works. There are only a couple of tracks that don't pass the muster and there are few in the way of classics, but I would rate it higher than School's Out. The main difference here is the tone. Alice seems to have embraced a very middle-of-the-road sound by this time in his career; it was the mid 70s and there was a lot of influence to a similar slant in the charts of the time. This did suit when mixed with dark undertones as in Welcome..., and granted Goes... by its very nature is relatively dark, but there is a palpable air of 'musical' about the album (which also relates to the concept which runs throughout) which makes the content more playful than dark, thus destroying the effect and lessening the impact of the tunes. Despite this, there is music of note.

The title track can be seen as a classic and is played still today. It is, however, the only one. And there are better tracks. 'You Gotta Dance' is fun and not a bad song which you will find yourself humming after you had thought you'd forgotten how it went. 'I'm the Coolest' is pretty dire. There's no song really just a low, devil voice and some wah-wah pedal groove. Only really there to piece the story concept together - as I mentioned, this feels like it should have been a musical. 'Didn't We Meet' is great. It's no classic but it's a perfect 4 minute Alice Cooper rock single. 'I Never Cry' has been compared to 'Only Women Bleed'. It is similar insomuch as it is a ballad. It is a good ballad.

After 'Welcome to my Nightmare', fans must have been drooling at the prospect of the tantalisingly titled '...Goes To Hell'. It suggests a development of the 'Nightmare' theme....more macabre horror stories, told with the usual Cooper wit, as Alice battles it out with Beelzebub himself. What we get, however, is rather disappointing. Much of Alice's best stuff was wrought in adversity, so perhaps after the success of 'Nightmare' life was a little bit too cosy for a while, manifesting itself in an album which is pretty lacklustre in parts. There are some great tracks on this record, for instance 'Go to Hell', and 'Wish You Were Here'. The former would grace any Alice album. 'I Never Cry' is also a classic, reminiscent of 'Only Women Bleed'. The rest of the stuff is not on the same level. 'Guilty' is a solid rock effort, 'You Gotta Dance' is rythmically interesting, with its thralldom of lost souls theme, while 'Wake me Gently' is suitably haunting in parts. But perhaps Hell for Alice is an eternity performing limp songs like 'The Coolest', 'Didn't We Meet..', and 'Give the Kid a Break'. If so he's hit the spot!! This is not an awful album - the performance is strong, and Alice's trademark humour is evident throughout - it's just mediocre for the most part. Alice fans will want to own it for its high points, but those wanting to discover Alice Cooper would be advised to try some of the classic albums first.

Ole Black Eyes IS Back, proclaims the promo poster for this album. Alice may have been secretly craving Hollywood celebrity status but it wasn't yet reflecting in his songwriting. Slender youthful black clad figure descends the heavenly staircase.This is his second album without his band and Alice has written a light hearted,witty follow up to Nightmare. Neither the Broadway themes nor the Damon Runyon Style Humour on this album can detract from a truly develish rock mind that is at work here.True he manages to sound like someone else on every track. Lennon on the sad ones, Jagger when He bawls Didn't We Meet!,and Andy Williams on I Never Cry. I like side one of this album best, Didn't We Meet is a lighter descendent of Halo Of Flies while guilty reminds me of I'm Eighteen.
Goes To Hell is Alice with his tongue in cheek but is still a real classy affair.Alice Cooper May not be very fashionable at the moment but he's still a whole lot of fun,so who cares.
