Product Description

Product Description

This edition in Universal's 20th Century Masters, Millennium Collection series (aka The Best of Rob Zombie) is somewhat confusing because this little set, packing as it does a powerful little wallop of evil fun, has been released in two versions. The trick is, both of them are exactly the same musically. However, if you bought it at Best Buy, you get a real plastic jewel case and a bonus DVD with three unreleased videos. It includes two for "American Witch," one directed by Zombie, the other directed and animated by David Hartman, and you get the Zombie-directed video for "Foxie, Foxie." This 20th Century Masters version of Best Of, from Universal, comes in an environmentally friendly, dodgy digipack with no DVD. The music cops the best tunes off Zombie's records and lays it out here in all its devilish metallic fury. There are ten cuts clocking in at a little under 53 minutes, and include four White Zombie tracks -- "Thunder Kiss '65," "Black Sunshine," "More Human Than Human," and "Super-Charger Heaven," where Zombie established himself as a Tesco Vee-cum-Alice Cooper for the metal set. Interestingly, these are the weaker tracks -- though they all rock -- when compared to the stellar solo material. "Dragula," "Superbeast," "Never Gonna Stop," and the nine-and-a-half minute "House of 1,000 Corpses," the theme song to the film Zombie directed by the same name. The industrial rhythms, the churning guitars, Zombie's sickly growl, and the sheer density of the mixes are what makes these tunes perfect for any rotten occasion. The swampy "The Devil's Rejects" -- another title theme to the 2005 sequel of sorts to House of 1,000 Corpses -- starts with a killer Delta blues slide lick and then moves the blues toward metal in one fell swoop. If you don't have the album already, this is a great place to start.

Inexpensive "Best of" CD 11 Nov. 2006
By William G. Piper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're a casual fan of Rob Zombie, then you'll want to pick up this CD. It features his "hits" from White Zombie to the recent solo effort "Educated Horses." The CD is very cheap, as is the packaging unfortunately. Hardcore fans will already have the material on the discs, so you may want to bypass it unless you're a completist.

Avoid these Millenium Cash Ins 29 Oct. 2007
By Micheal Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Avoid these stupid Millennium Collection so-called "best of"

They are always copies of an original album with tracks missing, or never a decent pick of greatest hits.

Rob already released a best of compilation called "Past, Present & Future" which features all the songs found here, plus extra songs not here, and a DVD of video clips with it for only a few bucks more then this one, but worth it.

Ignore ANY of these Millennium releases, there just cheap cash-ins.

The Perfect Casual Fan Compilation 22 Sept. 2008
By Ken Fontenot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The 20th Century Masters Millenium Collection offers up a nice helping of Rob Zombie's biggest tunes from both his solo efforts and his work in White Zombie in "The Best of Rob Zombie." For hardcore fans of Zombie, this is obviously not a necessary album. However, for people who only want a small collection of Zombie's radio hits (and a few from his films) for a discounted price, this disc fits the bill.

Featuring big radio tunes like "Living Dead Girl," "Never Gonna Stop" and "Dragula," as well as songs like "House of 1000 Corpses," I recommend "The Best of Rob Zombie" to casual fans like myself who enjoy listening to some of Zombie's work but not enough of it to warrant seeking out and purchasing his entire catalogue of work.

One thing that is somewhat disappointing about this set is the packaging. I'm all for "going green" in some aspects, but it would have been nice to have at least one photo inside the sleeve of this disc. It is possible to access the liner notes for the album online, but that defeats the purpose of calling them "liner notes" since they don't line the album anymore.
Zombie Greatest Hits 13 April 2008
By Alonzo C. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was very excited when I received Rob Zombie's Millenium Collection of Greatest Hits. I like the Millenium Collection brand for it's re-mastering of artists best hit songs. I've been wanting Rob Zombie in my collection for a while now. I'm a fan of his music and movies. One of the best things about this album is it features 4 songs by Rob's band White Zombie. One of the downsides of the disk is it's length. With only 12 tracks I felt it could've been longer. It could've been a double album with Disc 1 being White Zombie songs and Disc 2 being Rob Zombie solo songs. Oh well! Zombie classics on this disk that are my favorite include "Thunder Kiss '65", "Living Dead Girl", "Dragula", "Never Gonna Stop", and "More Human Than Human". This is a great disk for any Zombie fan that wants his band and solo work combined. Rob Zombie is a true genius in the world of Metal music. I'm a big fan of his 3 films so far. A cool highlight is at the end of the album with 2 title tracks from his first 2 films. The songs "House of 1,000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects" that belong to the films are included. This disk is a must-have for any Rob Zombie fan that wants a collection that spans his career so far.
Good, solid Zombie comp 20 Dec. 2007
By Alex Faber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many of the other reviews here make the case that if you're looking for the best Zombie compilation, you should go with "Past, Present, & Future," which not only includes 19 songs but also contains a DVD, all for pretty much the same price as the Millennium Collection. It's true that PP&F has more songs, but that means there's more room for excess fat that drags the overall CD down, and I have to say, some of the songs on PP&F aren't that great (including weak covers of "Brick House" and "Blitzkrieg Bop").

On the other hand, the Millenium Collection plays it smart, including only the best from White Zombie and Rob Zombie, including songs from "Educated Horses" (something PP&F doesn't have) so that the whole CD plays fast and furious. If you're new to Zombie and want to dive in and start hearing more, then PP&F is probably the way to go, but if you're just looking for a great mix of his best stuff, then buy the Millennium Collection.
