"Skeptics of the 11 for sound and 10 for music ratings — or of Alice Cooper's intrinsically musical value ought to consider checking out this one. The sound, at the very least, will grab your attention and how!" / "Alice's vocal delivery on 'The Black Widow' comes across on this pressing as more confrontational and submissive. The Fender Rhodes glistens across the speakers during 'Only Women Bleed,' and the strings sound as smooth as silk." Music = 10/11; Sound = 11/11 — Dylan Peggin, TrackingAngle.com. Read the full review here.

Shock rocker Alice Cooper's Welcome To My Nightmare — part of our Analogue Productions Atlantic 75th Anniversary Series — embellishes an already landmark release. 1975 was a banner year for superstar Alice Cooper with the release of the groundbreaking concept album. This album showcases Cooper's theatricality, storytelling prowess, and ability to create an immersive world of horror and fantasy.

From the opening notes of the title track, "Welcome to My Nightmare," listeners are transported into a dark and twisted dreamscape. Cooper's signature blend of rock, glam, and theatricality shines throughout the album. His gritty yet melodic vocals, combined with a richly layered musical backdrop, create an atmosphere of eerie enchantment. The album's production incorporates haunting orchestral arrangements, catchy hooks, and powerful guitar riffs, crafting a sonically diverse and captivating listening experience.

Teaming up again with his longtime producer Bob Ezrin, the duo assembled some of the greatest music to go along with the David Winter-produced TV special, and in doing so, created some of his best known songs like the huge hit single "Only Women Bleed." This Top 5 single carried Welcome To My Nightmare into multiple platinum territory and forever etched the word superstar to the name of Alice Cooper.

All the hallmarks of a top-notch Analogue Productions reissue are here for you to savor: Mastered directly from the original master tape by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and cut at 45 RPM. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings and RTI, and housed in tip-on old style gatefold double pocket jackets with film lamination by Stoughton Printing.

This is one of my favorite albums of all time. When I heard of this reissue I was all pumped up. First of all. It sounds absolutely magnificent. The best I have ever heard this recording. Fantastic. It made me remember why I fell in love with this album in the first place. The vinyl was just a little noisy.


Another one hit out of the park.

I’ve never heard this album sound so good in any form. Honestly the theme and production of this recording shouldn’t even sound this good. It’s amazing and proof that the Atlantic 75 series is only second to the UHQR series in my opinion. AP and QRP are truly the best at anything they do.
