All Music Guide - Greg Prato
With the 1974 disintegration of the original Alice Cooper group, Alice was free to launch a solo career. He wisely decided to re-enlist the services of Bob Ezrin for his solo debut, Welcome to My Nightmare, which was a concept album tied into the story line of the highly theatrical concert tour he launched soon after the album's release. While the music lost most of the gritty edge of the original AC lineup, Welcome to My Nightmare remains Alice's best solo effort -- while some tracks stray from his expected hard rock direction, there's plenty of fist-pumping rock to go around. The disco-flavored, album-opening title track would be reworked on the stage as more of a hard ...

The disco-flavored, album-opening title track would be reworked on the stage as more of a hard rock tune, while "Some Folks" dips into cabaret territory, and "Only Women Bleed" is a sensitive ballad that became a Top Ten hit. But the rockers serve as the album's foundation -- "Devil's Food," "The Black Widow," "Department of Youth," and "Cold Ethyl" are all standouts, as is the more tranquil yet eerie epic "Steven." Despite this promising start to Cooper's solo career, the majority of his subsequent releases were often not as focused and were of varying quality.

    One of Cooper's best solo efforts - highly recommended!!

    Welcome to My Nightmare was Alice's first release after the break up of the Alice Cooper band. It also ranks as one of his best solo efforts. While it offers such great rockers as Cold Ethyl, the Black Widow, and Escape, Cooper, and longtime producer Bob Erzin experimented with caberat on ''Some Folks'' The title track itself is more jazz-influenced.. Also a six-minute version Alice's hit ballad, ''Only Women Bleed'' a concert staple, is included here. While Cooper is criticisized sometimes for changing his sound alot, it can be a good thing becasuse there is a Cooper album out there for lovers of many different rock styles. If you have an interest in Cooper, this is definitly one of several AC albums you should purchase. He is an under-appreciated artist.
