  • What are you waiting for? If you are or ever have been a fan of Rob Zombie or White Zombie, grab up this collection fast, it is well worth the price. Literally, this is a fantastic compilation of Past, Present, and Future hits of the mega monster Rob Zombie. From his beginnings in White Zombie to the present, Zombie has always managed to stay in the slippery groove of industrial metal, and not only flow with the changes in the industry but present himself as a leader of it.All but three of the songs on this CD have been released previously, but what’s nice is having all these favorites together, along with the bonus material. And there is a nice array of guest vocals too, with Iggy Pop showing up in Black Sunshine, Alice Cooper in Hands Of Death, Howard Stern in The Great American Nightmare (Have $eXx With A Headless Body), and Brickhouse 2003 being mostly Lionel Richie with rap-artist Trina showing up for some fun. (and I don’t like rap either, but this is a great remix!)The new songs are Blitzkrieg Bop, Two-Lane Highway, and Girl On Fire; nice additions to the collection. You get a full CD of tracks from Zombie’s career, from White to Rob, and the three brand new songs to boot. You get a great video (and I am not a fan of music videos), including older White Zombie videos you will never see on MTV or VH1, including Demonoid Phenomenon, Return of the Phantom Stranger, and Spookshow Baby, which are not even on the Audio CD. Most music videos are boring, but not Zombie’s; so plug the video into your DVD player and have some fun. The videos are inventive and, in my humble opinion, better than his movie, House Of 1000 Corpses.On top of the audio and visual candy that Zombie holds out to us with his pale fingers, there is a nice visual offering also, in the form of a small booklet of pictures taken of Zombie over his career, from 1985 through the present. This is especially nice for the younger Zombie fans that have not witnessed his amazing visual evolution through the years, while still staying true to his metal-fused industrial rock core.Whether you are a die-hard Zombie fan like myself, or just beginning to taste the decaying ear candy he offers, this CD will be either a great addition or a great starting point to your musical library. ENJOY!!
