EDITORS’ NOTES

Rob Zombie spends as much time behind the movie camera as he does the mixing board, therefore it’s no surprise that his albums have a cinematic sound and scope to them. Somewhere there’s a beach-party gore film with his name on it. “Jesus Frankenstein” is the sound of marching metal warriors with the standard metal chug expanding into a downward spiral. “Sick Bubblegum” adds an extra jumpcut bounce to its Judas Priest riff-rhythm, its ‘80s guitar solos and intimations of industrial music’s cold mechanics. “What?” suggests a demented surf-rock as the sea turns ugly. “Mars Needs Women” sounds like Zombie channeling Alice Cooper. “Werewolf, Baby!” and “Virgin Witch” throw some boogie riffs into their death grip. “Death and Destiny Inside the Dream Factory” puts a garage-rock raunch to Zombie’s kind of grinding pop tune. “Werewolf Women of the SS” jets right back onto Zombie’s sonic superhighway with motoring guitars and anxious rhythm.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

ehh

I love rob zombie, but i don't know, it seems like he rushed this album or something.

Party in hell!

This album doesn't sound rushed to me. It sounds like Zombie and the gang wanted to bring the madness to their music, and succeeded. I have always loved Rob Zombie's style of hard rock that mixes horror movies with a tempo meant for dancing. I've only been listening to the album for three days now, but I have yet to skip a song. "Jesus Frankenstein" is cool. "Werewolf Women of the SS" is wild. My favorite song might be "The Man Who Laughs," which has an unbelievable drum session in the middle. If hell hosted a party, this album is what you would hear, werewolf women and all!
