Paul Fenech's mind has been stuck on horror movies and cartoons for a couple of decades now, and although his records with his group the Meteors have been called psychobilly and unhinged, there's something a little bit predictable and studied about it all, not unlike the movie genres he favors, and when one hears this stuff spread over five discs like this, it's quickly obvious that Fenech started out in one gear and then never shifted into another one. That's fine if you like what he does, but five discs of amped-up songs about werewolves and chainsaw killers gets old pretty fast if you don't.
