3.0 out of 5 stars Astro Creep Part 2 or Hellbilly Average?, 30 July 2012
This review is from: Hellbilly Deluxe (Audio CD)
I was very interested to hear where Rob Zombie would go after the break up of White Zombie, and was eager to hear if his stuff would take off where the flawless Astro Creep 2000 left off. I was disapointed when to my ears it didn't. I don't know what 'it' is, but Astro Creep had it and Hellbilly Deluxe doesn't. It makes me realise how much the other members of White Zombie helped to make a sound that was so great, but Rob just doesn't have it by himself.

Overall, I think Hellbilly is an essential listen to anyone wondering where Rob would go after White Zombie, but Astro Creep 2000 part 2 this is sadly not. Hellbilly Average is more like it. I know that is a bit like saying 'Shaun of the Dead isn't Spaced', because they're two totally different things, but Atro Creep, like Spaced, was so brilliant it was always going to be hard to follow.

Fortunatly though, American Made Music To Strip By sits happily along side Supersexy Swinging Sounds and in my opinion is the best solo album Rob has his name on. They are people who will state that without the original material, a remix could never exsist, which is true. But the remixes of songs from this album just have that extra something that the original recordings lack.
