1.0 out of 5 stars You gotta shoot em in the head..., 14 Feb. 2009
This review is from: La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume 1 (Audio CD)
Mr Zombie had peaked at this stage in his career, with everything post this album being a rehash of this template. His films too have suffered with the Retro-Zombification style that he has latched onto. This album does not travel well through walls into the shower cubicle either.

The bass and drums tend to merge into cacaphony of purple noise and any discernable difference between the tracks is lost. There are no distinctive bass lines either when listening to this CD from in the shower.

However, when listening to this in a conventional way, such as from my Hi-Fi whilst blasting at 3mph down a canal, the tracks sound different and the samples from crappy wasp movie films really compliment the sound of the music.

Unfortunately, being able to hear the dreary lyrics being sung by Mr Zombie highlights the fatal flaw in all of Mr Zombie's work so far. This album has no fewer than 64 'yeah's' used as a lyric. Some artists might use one or two per album, but Mr Zombie seems to use this as a stop gap for when he cannot think of a word!

I counted the 'yeah's' after back to back playback of this album around eight times. The first two listens had differing tallies of 'yeah's', with the first running at 61, and secondly scoring 65. It was a consistent 64 after six more listens but I think there may be a couple of low volume 'yeah's' inbetween some of the chorus's.

On the whole, this is a good album but spoiled by the lazy lyrical use of 'yeah'. It would be like yeah me saying yeah inbetween every other word yeah and yeah it becomes yeah annoying yeah, yeah?

Try to listen to this album and see if the 'yeah's' get on your milk bags. unless I can find a censored version of this album or at least cut out the 'yeah's' myself, I will not listen to this again. Sorry Mr Zombie, you might have a sexy wife with a nice rear, but this album is not recommended.

'The' Burton says:
Ramsey Tupper came along
Thinking himself so smart
Damning the choices of others
Hoping they'd take it to heart.

He'd pick on their movies
And laugh at their CDs
Spreading his comments
Like some virtual disease

He thinks he's so funny
And so do his mates
Loving the maelstrom
His mocking creates.

But the truth of it is
He likes only to mock
To make up for the fact
He has a very small intellect

Well, I'll choose the mighty White Zombie to address Amanda Burtons mind-loss over the weekend.

I think it's sad / demented / touching / delusional / boring / lazy / weird / psychotic (please delete at will) to leave the same poem on nearly every review of Tupper. I think it shows a lack of intellect and originality to just copy and paste the same thing over and over again, but then what else should we expect from Burton Albion?

I have to point out though, that "leaving his comments, like a virtual disease" must mean that he falls into the same bracket as Burton, as he is not averse to leaving the odd comment or two on other peoples reviews, just because they may have disagreed with him. This smacks of hypocrisy!!!

Also, the use of the word intellect is totally out of context with the rest of the poem, as it does not even attampt to rhyme, whereas all of the other verses at least have a stab at it (albeit vaguely).

All in all, Amanda was up VERY late and must have been beside himself to have to go to such lengths. Talk about desperation!!!

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!!!!!

There were 5 yeahs in that last comment. I agree, Burton must be like Hill Billy in that they love me and want my babies. I cannot as I am not playing for that team or their gender. I am like a slug.

"Yeah" is not a problem for me - it has a positive sound. I like it. I also like "Wooooarggghhh" but I don't like gratuitous use of the word "baby" by rock singers. Makes me feel uneasy, does that.

Yeah is positive, and in this instance, Mr Zombie uses it to counteract the nagativity of his voice and choice of lyrics. Yeah is seriously overused by Mr Zombie on all his albums. Even his remake of Halloween used too many yeahs. Swap 'Baby' lyrics for gravy instead to make the song more acceptable. It works every time.
