Album Review

It's kind of hard to say what Rob Zombie is at this juncture. He's a filmmaker, he's a musician but, more than anything, he's a brand selling...well, some kind of blend of cheap rock & roll and B-movie exploitation. Cinema proved to be slightly more favorable to his obsessions than music, but he started as a rocker, so he can't leave three chords behind, and so he wound up recording another album called Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor in 2013, about three years after he last attempted a pop album. There seems to be a concept album tying together Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor but it'd require patience to piece together, patience that only fanboys could afford. Zombie panders to these true believers but he's clever, clever enough to give Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor some distinctive wrinkles, whether it's the heavy dose of Deep Purple organ, relentlessly sequenced rhythms, or the monster movie lyrics he loves so. Why he decided to cover Grand Funk Railroad is anybody's guess — maybe somebody at the label thought it'd help get him on the radio, but at this point nobody should be under any illusion that Rob Zombie could expand his audience. He lives in a world of wax figurines, plaster replicas, VHS dubs, and scratched vinyl, sending them all through digital fuzzboxes and turning them up to 11. If you like what he likes, you'll have fun with him.

Album Review A Perfect Example Of Someone Who Doesn't Understand RZ?

The author of this album review clearly has some ill will towards Rob Zombie. It's not "hard to say what Rob Zombie is at this juncture". He is an accomplished filmmaker and musician; creator of innovative new genres in both fields (admired by some, hated by others). Here Zombie is portrayed as some confused punk just breaking onto the music and film scene. His blend of "cheap rock & roll and B-movie exploitation" has brought him success and millions of dollars. But clearly, no matter how successful you become, you can't earn respect; at least not from close-minded Apple employees who bash artists simply because they don't understand or appreciate their genre of work. Shame on you.

Outstanding!

Best album from Rob Zombie in a long time. Much, much better then hellbilly deluxe 2!

Very Nice

Best stuff he has put out in a while. I liked Rock and Roll (In A Black Hole) best. Good album overall though.
