Muze PNote As a director or as a musician, Rob Zombie shows no signs of closing the door on either of his creative endeavors anytime soon. Returning with his first album since 2006's Educated Horses, after several delays following this record's completion in 2008 -- due to his work on Halloween 2, lack of promotion, and time spent shopping for a new label after 18 years of recording for Geffen -- Zombie has since gone on to say that the songs on Hellbilly Deluxe 2 were his easiest to write. This could be because it was his first outing to include help from his bandmates (longtime touring comrades guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D, and drummer Tommy C) but it's probably more attributed to the fact that making songs like these is old hat by now. "Jesus Frankenstein," "Sick Bubblegum," and "Mars Needs Women" are the same schlocky grooves that made up his five previous solo records and six White Zombie records. His trademark "yeah" and monotone hoedown growl are still front and center, the B-horror movie references are still plentiful (Frankenstein, martians, witches, and two songs about werewolves), and the chugging guitars and dark, sleek beats are still trashy enough to be stripclub staples. Chris Baseford's production is thick throughout, withstanding the single, "What," a song Zombie and company wrote and recorded in only a few hours. Influenced by `60s garage rock, the vocals are run through a maximal amount of mid-range distortion and accented by temporize clinks and organ riffs behind the usual crunch. At this point in his career, his best move is to take these types of risks, and when he does so on the ten-minute closer "The Man Who Laughs," with its underlying orchestral score by Tyler Bates (composer for the Halloween remakes The Devil's Rejects and The Watchmen), the results are compelling and unnerving in a good way. ~ Jason Lymangrover

Professional Reviews

Billboard (p.32)
- "[A] diverse and wide-ranging affair, from the industrial grind of 'Sick Bubblegum' and 'Mars Needs Women' to the garage-y fury of 'Death and Destiny Inside the Dream Factory'..."
