I like this bit....
'maybe not until the third instalment!!!' W3MN - now that would be awesome.........

I'd like a title like "The Final Nightmare" or the Nightmare Returns...From the Dead! (5 Years down the road though) Next up...I want an "Alice Cooper Goes Back To Hell". And at the end of it, there should be a conclusion that Steven wasn't really dreaming while he was in Hell, so because he has been there for so long, he falls asleep into a third nightmare in the last song where Hell haunts him psychologically until he finally wakes up and beats the devil in the third nightmare. Or he could not wake up at all and be trapped in the hellish nightmare for all eternity.

Yup,there are plenty of possibilities to go around for what can/should happen next. Alice might pull another shock though and not do a concept album at all. Could be another dose of The Eyes/Dirty Diamonds sleeze garage rock. Wouldn't be opposed to it as I love those albums but it would be cool to see Alice blend WTMN, Goes to Hell, W2MN and a possible Goes Back to Hell together. It would be like putting a family of younger and older generational siblings together and see how they match up with their similarities, differences and viewpoints.

Although, the idea of W3MN seems to conflict with the theory that Alice seems to do things in pairs...I think there was a discussion about that somewhere here.

But, everyone knows that I love everything that Alice does. So, it matters not.

the following review had this to say about the songs: "..... all authentically recapture the desired mood created on the original back in the day, whilst the lyrics once again offer a fascinating, oft macabre glimpse into the wonderfully tortured mind of Alice Cooper. That said, what was shocking in the 70’s, isn’t necessarily so in this post 9/11 world. "

It was mentioned here before and I agree, Welcome2 is more of a sequel to Goes to Hell. I feel Goes to Hell is completely underrated. It could have used one more rocker, but it's still a great album.

I wouldn't use the word "sequel" that directly. Yes, the "2" in W2MN suggests a continuance of a story, but it is more of "another chapter" in the many stories that Alice has told. I think the title tells more of the musical people involved....Bob Ezrin, Steve Hunter, etc.....which suggests the idea, "let's go back to 1975 and make an well-produced record like Welcome To My Nightmare".

Well, this is a very bad review....the reviewer gives a score of 4....and calls it "shit"....I will let you decide if that judgement is correct.

Yep Steven..a reviewer of your review says that you hit the nail on the head -I agree- good to read a review from a musician- I agree that caffeine has more hooks than ac/dc- or as I like to say so many hooks it would make your hands bleed
