Seemingly everyone who was on "The Celebrity Apprentice" for the last few years except Lou Ferrigno does a cameo on this disc, led by a delightfully wacky duet with Cyndi Lauper on "Big Spender." Even better is a duet with Clay Aiken on "Luck Be A Lady Tonight" from "Guys And Dolls" which, it is safe to say, rocks harder than anything Aiken has ever done.

Like a great Broadway production, the album builds to a final crescendo in "Tonight/Somewhere" from "West Side Story," in which "Evita" star Patti LuPone and Snider give the '80s power ballad treatment to one of the stage's most enduring melodies. Haters beware: The dude really CAN sing!

CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: "Razzle Dazzle" is from the musical "Chicago," but Twisted Sister fans will doubtless latch onto the cowbell drum beat that is very similar to the one that made "We're Not Gonna Take It" such an adrenaline rush.
