No epic length songs? Interesting. I am trying to ignore everything and wait for the album to be in my hands but I'm not doing too good of a job. The review is pretty glowing. I found that I have expectations for this album. That's not a good thing. I don't want to set the bar impossibly high here. But I would be lying if I didn't say I want a masterpiece. Can't wait. Usually I'm pretty patient for new albums but this one is different for some reason.

That's about 58 minutes for anyone interested. Plus the bonus tracks.

Another review, not so favorable. To sum up the review, they don't like it because it doesn't sound like what they think an Alice Cooper album would sound like (I think, the reviewer sounds confused, it's not a well thought out review.)

I don't even know what that is supposed to mean, buried in the mix?

"There is this fun beat that is the main tone of the album that regardless of the lyrics the songs are a beat that make them enjoyable enough to listen to."

I mean.. what the hell?

This guy basically said the album didn't meet his expectations of what he stereotyped Alice to be.

What The???? Does this reviewer really know Alice Cooper? Or does he know a handful of songs like Poison, Eighteen, Schools out? ........................makes you wonder?

That's the worst piece of shit I've ever subjected my brain and eyes to. BEWARE: Anyone who reads that review will lose 20 IQ points. Is it worth it? You decide!

I don't think this guy really gets it. He's looking for a heavy metal album. He complains about nce sounding songs with nasty sounding lyrics. To me that contrast is one of the things that I like about Alice. Songs like some folks, OWB etc where my mun would listen and say 'what a nice song' but not really know what it's about.

Such a poorly written review with a total lack of grammar and structure. Things like this just lower my expectations of society and future generations. People are becoming incapable of executing the written word..... i blame mobile phones!

Anyway, back to the 'review', it seems obvious to me that he was expecting some kind of 'Heavy Metal' album. Strangely, this review actually gives me higher hopes for the album as it sounds like it's a really eclectic mix of styles...... exactly what i want from an AC album!

That was just terrible. Anyone who finds that review to be enjoyable must be in a very confused state of mind. It's like a 4th grader whose native language isn't english wrote a review (and occassionally looked some words from a dictionary) without knowing much about grammar. He didn't even mention any of those songs by name and obviously didn't have great knowledge of Alice Cooper's career.

I agree with you While Heaven Wept the writing skills have been going down the toilet during the last ten years. It is a global phenomenom and it has been acknowleged in Finnish high schools too. Teachers are worried.

Now negativity aside, I eagerly wait Welcome 2 my nightmare and believe it will be a very diverse and interesting album.

I agree with you While Heaven Wept. From this review I have hope that this will be a really varied selection of songs, which is what I look for in an Alice album. That's the trouble with the Internet is that anyone can post a review, no matter how unqualified they are.

I only skimmed the second review, which may be how the reviewer (nameless to me - doesn't matter) listened to the disc. Two things leap out at me... the word "PRECONCEIVED" and the note that the vocals were mixed low.

Up front and in your face isn't always the best way to mix the vocals. I have always thought that Alice's voice was great when used as an instrument. Public Animal #9, for instance. He's mixed in deeply, lots of effects, and it sounds great.

This review only reaffirms my long held stance that critics are not always on my level. I won't even begin with this guy's *ahem* "writing style."
