I have a real soft soft spot for Dee Snider's DEE DOES BROADWAY album. Not every track is a winner, but there are some really creative arrangements and some interesting duet partners. I especially love his take on "Cabaret" and his "Big Spender" duet with Cyndi Lauper. And his duet on a medley of "Tonight" and "Somewhere" with Patti LuPone is very respectable. Other highlights..."Razzle Dazzle," "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd," and "There Is Nothing LIke A Dame," which also features the three leads from PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT.

My least favorite track is the "Whatever Lola Wants (Lola Gets)" duet with Bebe Neuwirth. Snider is fine, but Neuwirth's performance seems canned and false with little playfulness or spontaneity and she almost seems to be on autopilot giving a near-identical rendition as what she did on the revival cast album.
