  • Hellbilly Deluxe confirms several things that many of us suspected all along. One: Rob Zombie was pretty much the sole creative contributor to White Zombie. Two: Zombie has watched waaay too many “B” monster movies.Strangeness notwithstanding, “Hellbilly” has a pile of great songs. “Superbeast” is a chest-pounder, kicking the record off to an adrenaline-fueled start. “Living Dead Girl” and “Spookshow Baby” are personal favorites, showcasing some melody, some diversity, and Zombie’s excellence in lyric writing. “Meet the Creeper” and “The Ballad of Resurrection Joe and Rosa Whore” are also excellent songs.The album runs the gamut from slow to fast, hard to, er… less hard, but never loses it’s pop-culture influenced sense of humor. Rob Zombie has captured a bit of Alice Cooper and the Tubes’ ability to have fun onstage while still making great music that resonates with it’s fans.Sellout? Nah… Zombie would have to produce a boy band to truly sell out. “Hellbilly Deluxe” is one for the rock record books.
