Artist: "Rob Zombie"
Album: "Hellbilly Deluxe"
Reviewer: Dr. Boogie
Review: I've been a fan of Rob Zombie for a long while (his music, that is; his movies I could take or leave), and I still find myself going back to his very first post-White Zombie album. It's not often that I've found an album that I've enjoyed through and through, but Hellbilly Deluxe was my earliest.
All the songs are suitably heavy, but at the same time, manage to be distinct in their own regard. Songs like Superbeast and Dragula are more straightforward, whereas songs like Living Dead Girl and How to Make a Monster go by at a slightly slower tempo. Eventually, Zombie remixed all of them for his aptly-named ďAmerican-Made Music to Strip ByĒ album, but the originals still stand well enough on their own.
Iíve got to admit, a lot of my favorite artists seem to have made only one good album before starting to churn out crap (Iím looking at you, Disturbed!), but Rob Zombie has, so far, managed to stay in the game nicely. Personally, I think itís because he uses his movies to channel away the crap vibes, but hey, if it works, it works.
