This is a cd that demands to be played loud. I love Rob Zombie! He's got so much imagination and creativity. For the negative reviewers going on about how he sold out and that he was better with White Zombie, blah blah blah, listen up: Rob CREATED White Zombie. It's not like he was a small part of that band. HE decided on the look of the band and the direction the group would go in sonically. If it wasn't for Rob, there would be no White Zombie. It's his perogative to decide to go solo. Maybe he thought he had taken White Zombie as far as he wanted to, and wanted to branch out and expand even further on his vision of incorporating B horror and sci-fi movies in his music. And will you guys stop comparing him to other groups and saying that he's copying off so-and-so, or that so-and-so can do it better. I happen to really love what Rob is doing and i think he's doing it great!! This cd is a combination of great songs mixed in with "interludes" of sound bytes from movies, instumental bits and other assorted noises. The best cuts are Dragula, Living Dead Girl, Superbeast, Demonoid Phenomenon, and Return Of The Phantom Stranger. The video for that song is totally amazing and really sums up what Rob Zombie is all about. It's one of my favorite Zombie music videos! If you've never seen the video for Phantom Stranger, then buy his greatest hits cd and you'll get a bonus dvd of all his videos at a really great price! Every video on that dvd is priceless and well worth buying. I could watch those videos over and over and never get tired of them. They are fascinating and very well done.Buy Hellbilly Deluxe. It's a great debut solo cd from Rob Zombie. Even better is his second effort called The Sinister Urge.
