This is the first full work I've heard from Mr. Zombie. After seeing him with Howard Stern, and hearing the opening track to "Private Parts", he looked like somebody worth listening to more. So we have this artist with the ten-foot long hair and even longer beard that looks like a Rastafarian zombie (pun intended I guess). Then comes the album, where the title itself is intriguing. Add to it artwork that includes naked chicks and creeepy but lovable looking monsters, and one is now really interested. Can the music possibly live up to all this billing?
You betcha. This is exactly what I would want this music to sound like, based on all the above hype. It's music that sounds like the whole band is riding on motorcyles through hell while playing it. It's music that sounds like fire would be shooting all around, even if there would be no reason for the fire. And it's music that would have naked chicks dancing all around, just because they belong there.
This is music that makes me want to see the act live. It's got to be a wild experience. This is not "alternative" music, with it's bored, spoiled singers. It's not rap, where the "artists" swear a lot just to sell records. This is a one of a kind artist who has his own vision, and goes his own way. What that vision is, maybe I'll someday know, but until I figure it out, the ride is going to be a lot of fun.
