EDITORS’ NOTES

Rob Zombie's fifth solo album adds Marilyn Manson drummer Ginger Fish to a lineup that already features Marilyn Manson guitarist John 5. At this juncture in 2013, it's Zombie who's keeping the flames of hell, shock rock, and B-movie deliciousness alive. With John 5—a respected guitarist who pens regular columns for guitar magazines—cowriting the material, there's no shortage of music to go with Zombie's horror-punk lyrics. Tunes like "Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown," Teenage Nosferatu P***y," and "White Trash Freaks" continue his trademarked silliness and primal rock-god status. A cover of Grand Funk Railroad's "We're an American Band" is surprisingly melodic and inventive, considering how crowd-pumping the tune naturally is. (The cowbell reigns supreme—no worries!) A tune like "Ging Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga" jams exactly as you'd expect. When you have as recognizable a brand of music as Rob Zombie, that's as good as it gets for any artist.

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.

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.
