Customer Review

on 14 February 2009
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.
