Sound: This is Rob's first solo album after White Zombie, it isn't quite as unqiue as White Zombie's albums, but none the less it has its momments. Some songs are simlar to White Zombie like: Spookshow Baby, Resurction Of Rosa Whore And Joe. The album is Rob setting a evil and durranged vibe. You can't really desribe it, you have to take a look at it yourself. // 9

Lyrics: The lyrics are amazing, it fits the background noises and guitar very well. Like in the Resuction Of Rosa Whore And Joe - "Close the door and shut the lights, pray that your dead." Something amoung those lines. Rob is a very unqiue singer, I love his style, and voice. // 8

Overall Impression: The only other artist that I can think of that is even close to Rob is, White Zombie, which he sang for anyway, so that's probabaly why. I love that lyrics, but wish there was more to the guitar work, it isn't anything special, White Zombie had some pretty bad ass guitar solos, and riffs. Rob Zombie did the album art work too, the book inside has crazy drawings and story line, if I remember right. This album is for anyone who is thinking about getting into Rob Zombie, this is his best solo ablum of his career to date. His new one is coming out eduacted hourse, and who knows what that will be like, he hasn't put a album out in at least 5 years so, will see. // 10

Sound: What can I say but wow. Admittedly not as good as White Zombie, but still kick ass. To start out, Superbeast is a heavy-ass song in itself. The guitars keep you listening, and the lyrics are barely audible. What more do you want? Dragula. A legend in itself. You cannot play this song, and skip over it. Living Dead Girl. I don't even need to explain that. Demonoid Phenomenon is just amazing. Goes from sort-of-techno-heavy metal to makes-your-head-explode crazy. Listen and be amazed. // 10

Lyrics: Good lyrics, but they don't make a whole lot of sense. That's all I got. Other than that, it's great. But even though the lyrics aren't exactly sensible, the music makes up for it. Listen to Superbeast. You will know what I am talking about. Everyone loves to wake up to the scariest song in Zombie's new arsenal. // 9

Overall Impression: Go buy this album right now if you haven't already. It's heavy, insane, and has that touch of horror that Zombie is known for. Nearly every song has that horror-film feel combined with the sound effects of a porn to make it good. If this album ever breaks, it isn't possible to not buy another one. Definitely a required Zombie album. // 10
