Monday 10/26/2020 1am ET: Feature LP: Alice Cooper – Welcome 2 My Nightmare (2011)

Welcome 2 My Nightmare (also known as Welcome to My Nightmare 2) is the nineteenth solo album by Alice Cooper, released in September 2011. Peaking at No. 22 in the Billboard 200 it is Cooper’s highest-charting album in the US since 1989’s Trash. The album is a sequel to his 1975 album Welcome to My Nightmare.

The idea for the album came about soon after the thirtieth anniversary of the original Welcome to My Nightmare album, while Cooper was talking with producer Bob Ezrin, who proposed the idea of a sequel to Welcome to My Nightmare. Cooper liked the idea, and decided to recruit previous members of the Alice Cooper band. The concept of the album was described by Cooper as “another nightmare, and this one is even worse than the last one.” Cooper said that he had originally intended to make a sequel to his previous album, Along Came a Spider, but decided to make the Nightmare sequel after Ezrin explained that he “wasn’t really into it.”

The album was completed sometime during early 2011, with Cooper announcing its completion in February 2011 on his radio show, Nights with Alice Cooper. It was first scheduled to be released late in 2011 on Bob Ezrin’s Bigger Picture label as part of a deal involving marketing, touring and production work by Bigger Picture for Cooper in the future. The album was then announced as being delayed until some time in 2012 due to Cooper’s touring commitments, however it was finally released on September 13, 2011.

Monday 10/26/2020 12am ET: Feature LP: Alice Cooper – Welcome To My Nightmare (1975)

Welcome to My Nightmare is an album by Alice Cooper, released in March 1975. It is Alice Cooper’s first solo album (all previous Alice Cooper releases were band efforts), and his only album for the Atlantic Records label. Welcome to My Nightmare is a concept album. Played in sequence, the songs form a journey through the nightmares of a child named Steven. The album inspired the Alice Cooper: The Nightmare TV special, a worldwide concert tour in 1975, and the Welcome to My Nightmare concert film in 1976. The ensuing tour was one of the most over-the-top excursions of that era. Most of Lou Reed’s band joined Cooper for this record.

The cover artwork was created by Drew Struzan for Pacific Eye & Ear. Rolling Stone would later rank it ninetieth on the list of the “Top 100 Album Covers Of All Time”. Famed film actor of the horror genre Vincent Price provided a monologue in the song “Devil’s Food”. The original version of “Escape” was recorded by The Hollywood Stars for their shelved 1974 album Shine Like a Radio, which was finally released in 2013. The ballad “Only Women Bleed”, released as a single, is a song originally composed by guitarist Dick Wagner for his late-60s band The Frost, with a new title provided by Cooper and revised lyrics written by Wagner and Cooper. The remastered CD version adds three alternate version bonus tracks.

A sequel concept album, Welcome 2 My Nightmare, was released in 2011.

Saturday 10/24/2020 12am ET: Feature LP: Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band – Letter To You (2020)

Letter to You is the twentieth studio album from Bruce Springsteen; it marks his first new studio album with his regular backing band the E Street Band since 2014’s High Hopes. The release has been met with critical acclaim by critics, particularly with the album’s ability to face mortality and aging in a profound manner.

Letter to You was met with universal acclaim reviews from critics noted at review aggregator Metacritic. This release received a weighted average score of 89 out of 100, based on 19 reviews. With three reviews, aggregator Album of the Year sums up critical consensus as a 83 out of 100. Alex McLevy of The A.V. Club gave the album an A rating, calling it “one of the finest achievements of Bruce Springsteen’s career” for the songwriting’s profound look at loss and the fact that listeners can hold up “nearly any track as a microcosm of its overall scope”. Kory Grow of Rolling Stone awarded this four out of five stars for Springsteen’s deep ability to express his emotions in the “self-therapy” of the lyrics and sums up the music as “the sound of Springsteen accepting that for himself”. Richard Williams of Uncut devotes a lengthy review of Letter to You that places it in the context of Springsteen’s career as a milestone release that is ultimately about Springsteen, his relationship with his band, and their relationship with the audience, particularly in their ability to interpret American culture, history, and politics; he gives it a nine out of 10. Writing for the Associated Press, David Bauder has a mixed take on the material, noting how it’s ironic that the composer of “Glory Days” spends so much time looking back and while Springsteen “is not, by any means, a nostalgia act”, between this album and his Broadway show, his current output “is less about pulling out of here to win than pulling back in to appreciate what he has”; the review praises some songs but notes that Springsteen sometimes slips into cliché.

Adrian Thrills in the UK’s Daily Mail gave the album 5 stars and called it “life-affirming to the core”.

IndieWire’s David Ehrlich reviewed the documentary, characterizing it as a “rockin’ meditation on death” which is also “an upbeat portrait of someone who isn’t going anywhere, even when he leaves us”; he gave the film a B rating. In Time, Stephanie Zacharek also gave a positive assessment of the film, calling it “captivating” in its perspective on aging and as a retrospective on Springsteen’s career.

Thursday 10/22/2020 12am ET: Feature LP: Doors – Morrison Hotel 50th Anniversary Edition (2020)

Morrison Hotel is the fifth studio album by American rock band the Doors, released February 9, 1970 by Elektra Records. Following the use of brass and string arrangements recommended by producer Paul A. Rothchild on their previous album, The Soft Parade, the band returned to their original blues-rock style and this album was largely seen as a return to form for the band. The Doors entered Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles in November 1969 to record the album which is divided into two separately titled sides; “Hard Rock Cafe” and “Morrison Hotel”. The group included session bassists Lonnie Mack and Ray Neapolitan on the album’s songs.

The album reached no. 4 on the Billboard 200, and performed better overseas than the preceding album (it was the groups’s highest-charting studio album in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at No. 12). The accompanying “You Make Me Real” / “Roadhouse Blues” single peaked at No. 50 in May 1970 on the Billboard 100 chart. The cover photo was taken by Henry Diltz.

Wednesday 10/21/2020 1am ET: Feature LP 2020: Bahamas – Sad Hunk (2020)

Bahamas is the intimate, lyrically wry, indie-folk solo project of Canadian guitarist and singer/songwriter Afie Jurvanen. Having honed his skills working alongside artsy roots luminaries like Feist and Jason Collett in the mid-2000s, Jurvanen garnered widespread critical acclaim for his 2009 Bahamas debut Pink Strat. He has continued to expand his approach, dipping into organic ’70s-style soul, jazz, and country influences; sounds that helped earn him Juno Awards for 2014’s Bahamas Is Afie and 2018’s Earthtones.

Afie Jurvanen’s fifth studio album as Bahamas, 2020’s Sad Hunk, catches the adept Canadian singer/songwriter in a wry mood, ruminating on what it’s like to grow into middle age in an indie rock scene that often prizes youthful cool over the kind of lived-in wisdom that comes with adult life. A longtime presence in Toronto, Jurvanen made his name backing artful performers like Feist and Jason Collett before earning his own acclaim with literate, folky albums like 2009’s Pink Strat and 2012’s Barchords. However, as with 2018’s Juno Award-winning Earthtones, Sad Hunk (a cheeky nickname Jurvanen’s wife gave him after seeing a particularly brooding and stylish press photo he’d posed for) finds Jurvanen recon-textualizing this earnest image, balancing his earthy, acoustic roots with forays into organic ’70s soul. Joining him are his longtime associates bassist Mike O’Brien and drummer Don Kerr, as well as fellow guitarists Christine Bougie and Sam Weber. While the album is rife with a soulful sophistication, Jurvanen keeps things simple, often constructing tracks out of spare guitar riffs with just a modicum of bass, drums, and backing vocals added. Cuts like “Trick to Be Happy,” “Less Than Love,” and “Can’t Complain” are loose, groove-based anthems that evoke the classic ’70s and ’80s work of artists like Boz Scaggs, Prince, and Robbie Robertson. We also get several rootsy slow jams in “Fair Share” and the wicked, fuzztone guitar-accented “Wisdom of the World.” There’s a melancholy vibe to many of the songs as Jurvanen closes in on his forties and struggles to find the creative inspiration that seemed so effortless in his younger days. That said, he finds moments of wry humor and even danceability in his introspection. On the disco funk-infused “Own Alone,” he sings “Too broke to feel so wealthy/Too young to feel unhealthy/Too old to understand the selfie/Too far gone for you to help me.” With Sad Hunk, Jurvanen has crafted an album about reaching the age where you don’t care about being cool anymore, yet he somehow manages to find ever more nuanced and inspired levels of cool musical insight in the process.

Wednesday 10/21/2020 12am ET: Feature LP: Twenty One Pilots – Trench (2018)

Trench is the fifth studio album by American musical duo Twenty One Pilots, released on October 5, 2018 through Fueled by Ramen. It is the band’s first studio album in three years, after the breakthrough success of their previous album, Blurryface (2015). Recorded in secret during a year-long public silence, it is a concept album which explores mental health, suicide, and doubt, themes prominently featured in the band’s previous works, framed in the metaphorical city of Dema and the surrounding valley known as “Trench”. The album was also the first release of the newly-revived Elektra Music Group.

The album was preceded by the release of four singles. The first two, “Jumpsuit” and “Nico and the Niners”, were both released on July 11, 2018. The third single, “Levitate”, was released on August 8, 2018. The fourth single, “My Blood”, was released August 27, 2018. Two more singles, “Chlorine” and “The Hype”, were released on January 22 and July 16, 2019 respectively. To promote the album, the band embarked on The Bandito Tour, which began at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on October 16, 2018.

Trench received acclaim from critics, who applauded its ambition, songwriting and more cohesive production; many contrasted it favorably with the band’s previous album Blurryface. Several publications placed the record on their year-end lists, with Rock Sound naming it the best album of the year. It was also a commercial success, reaching number one in six countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Spain and the Netherlands, and number two in several countries, notably the United Kingdom and United States.
