Product Description

BBC Review

On his third solo album White Zombie founder Rob Zombie offers some cleanly produced American rawk crossed with a fair dose of glam. I came thinking I'd be scared, I left thinking of Suzi Quatro.

"American Witch" is amusingly melodramatic with its Meatloaf-like heavy guitars and wailing. But then some welcome electronica attempts to bring the song up to date. "Seventeen Year Locust" trudges forth grungily, but despite the roaring effort going into the repeated bellow of the title, it's hard to discover what the song's about. The sitar solo rocks, though.

The menacing "100 Ways" is the album's highlight while the influence of Ozzy Osbourne and (shudder) Gary Glitter preside over "The Scorpion Sleeps" - with its double-tracked vocals and a thunking rhythm to stomp around to.

In places at least, Educated Horses is a surprising amount of fun. --Zoe Street

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty damned good 30 Mar 2006
By ravenheart VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It's a pretty damned good album. The hard and heavy are well represented with "American Witch", premiered the other week on Jay Leno's show, the awesome "17 Year Locust" and the White Zombie-esque "Let It All Bleed". "Ride" is also pretty heavy, but nothing like previous Zombie. In fact, this is Rob's most adventurous record to date, musically. Lyrically it's pretty similar stuff to before. The riffs and melodies here are something else. Lots of sinister clean melodies and bass rhythms, and even some piano and strings, give totally different feels to songs without the need for crushing riffs. Of course, when those riffs do come in, the impact is even greater.

"The Devil's Rejects", obviously about Rob's movie of the same name, is the natural partner to "House of 1,000 Corpses", the title song from his first movie. Another creepy, southern-country-infused slow-burner with plenty of steel guitars and piano.

The only song I'm not so keen on is "The Scorpion Sleeps", which is clearly Rob getting his Ramones fix. "Sawdust In The Blood" and "100 Ways" are instrumental pieces, the kind of which we're pretty used to on Zombie records by now.

As with all Zombie records it's still too short (only 38 minutes), but musically it's a remarkable piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 9 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.

This is a great album! If you're into the La Sexorcisto-era White Zombie and not quite as fond of Rob's previous solo efforts, then I strongly advise you check this out. It's a very diverse album; quite light on the synths and samples but has very strong melodies and would be good for any fan of the stoner rock genre.

Sadly, many White Zombie fans will disregard this album as being more of the Dragula type stuff which can come off as a bit too processed. Far from it. This is good ol' fashioned gritty southern fried metal Zombie style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rob zombie but less heavy. 7 July 2013
By D.W.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My favourite Rob Zombie album was "the sinister urge". This i found a bit less heavy but it is still good, all the usual samples and riffs are there but it all sounds a bit subdued. At times his voice even reminds me of Alice cooper which isn't a bad thing just a bit slower and lest aggressive than before, saying that the more i listen the more i like it. A good Rob Zombie album but not a great one.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...well, I'm addicted 10 April 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I think the reason that "Educated Horses" is generally the least liked of Zombie's albums is because it is the most experimental, and people do not like change. I personally think it is his best, precisely because it stands out so much. The great thing about this album is that no two songs are alike.

"Sawdust in the Blood" is the intro to the album. Piano and acoustic guitar blend together wonderfully. This gentle sound is contrasted with a gritty crushing. It's strangely unsettling. As fast as this intro ends we are thrown into an entirely different atmosphere with "American Witch", a heavy song with some chugging guitar work and a chorus made to be sung along to. It's concise and fast paced. Not a second wasted. The pace is decreased a little with "17 Year Locust" which induces an unexpected middle eastern atmosphere. It's a calmer track, but I find myself head banging along with it from start to finish. In "The Scorpion Sleeps" Zombie projects a sound similar to his influences such as Alice Cooper. It is jumpy and makes you feel as though you can handle any mishap life could throw you. Then it calms down again with another filler track. I don't think it adds much, but it sure does change the mood. If you're listening to the album start to finish it will break things up nicely. "Let it all Bleed Out" is a brilliant heavy track with incredibly disorientating lyrics that I will never be able to interpret. Rob's voice sounds great and there is also a great use of melody. This is followed by "Death of it All", a gentle and harmonious track. This, in my opinion is the best track on the album. It clearly has a lot of heart put into it. Don't write it off because of it's lack of heaviness."The Devil's Rejects" is probably the second strongest track. It is eery, mean spirited and catchy.
