So, I picked up a copy of the new Bobby Z remix album today. Decided to get it from best buy, to get the five bonus cuts. Brought it home and loaded it into the Hi-Fi, pressed play and sat down to peruse the cover and booklet while I listened. As I listened to each new interpretation of these past Zombie ditties, I found that some hit the mark and others did not. Is it something that'll reside in my cd player often?? Most likely not. Will I break it out occasionally for a spin, much the same way that I treat "Super-sexy Swingin' Sounds", "American Made Music to Strip By" and the "Nightcrawlers EP"?? Yes. It's entertaining. But, it's nothing I need to hear all of the time, by any means.
Also, as I paged through the booklet, I noticed some things. 1) Rob is obviously very into his wife being nude and wants us to know it, because there are many pics of her wearing very, very little within the cover. 2) I'm guessing Rob owed Geffen Records more product, cuz the last I'd heard, he was recording for Roadrunner and was supposedly done with Geffen... Alas, this new remix album is released under Geffen Records. So, I can only assume that he's throwing them a bone as some sort of contractual obligation. Either way, "Mondo Sex Head" is not unlistenable. It's just not something that everyone is going to enjoy. \m/
