Staff review by
Rob Zombie is in a world of his own musically, lyrically and artisticly. For over 15 years now this Alice Cooper inspired shock-rocker has mixed styles together and helped to bring about the fusion of metal and electronica. Unlike other artists specializing in shock tactics, he has never turned into a caricature of himself. He has also never betrayed his thrash metal roots. Instead, he became a sort of symbol. His music, created in his own world of Grade B horror movies and porn stars always seems to defy both stylistical and commercial classification. One simply cannot put Zombie in any group: neither is he a thrash metaller nor an industrial artist. He is just an elastic artist producing music which is universal and attractive to most metal fans.

I think you can directly compare Rob Zombie's solo stuff with White Zombie, and for me, Astrocreep 2000 is head and shoulders above this.

I do love the sound of this album though...mastered very well.

To me, Rob Zombie is the metal form of Justin Timberlake. Like Justin's music, this album is full of somewhat sexy and easy-to-grasp melodies with modest hardness. I loved this album when I was a teenager. This album is recommended for those who are on the verge of exploring the metal world.
