I bought Educated Horses on the day of it's release, and I must confess that after a first listen I was dissapointed. At the second try I saw the record in a totally different light: the tracks are lighter, meaning, they are not as heavy as some of the songs that have been created by Rob in his musical carreer; but that should'nt make them less appreciated by Zombie fans. It's just "odd" to hear tracks such as "Death of it All", which really is the only acoustic song on the entire album. It's not odd tough to hear tracks like "American Witch", "Scorpion Sleeps" and "Ride", which are all, typically Rob Zombie tracks; heavy, lumpy, industrial guitars and basses are used in those songs making them, well, not just catchy and pleasing to the ear but GOOD, which is different from CATCHY. There is not that much to say really, it's a pretty straightforward album, no hidden messages, no real development; at the very least I could say it's less industrial than the previous records he has released. It is my opinion, of course. People, it's Rob Zombie. All I can really say is it will not let you down, not even if you are a big fan of the artist.
A good buy.
