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

"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.
"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.Read more ›
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.
Zombie never disappoints to deliver a great album with consistently amazing artwork !
A good buy.

Let's set the record straight; I love Zombie's work. The guy is one of the reasons I got into heavy rock/metal in the first place. Read morePublished on 16 Sept. 2007 by Mr. M. L. Smallman

Crap album, Zombie is more interested in directing movies, doubt he even wrote some of this stuff. White Zombie were class, Robs first couple of solo albums were pretty good, but... Read morePublished on 20 July 2006 by E. Harpur
