Okay everyone here at Zombies world wide web of madness, what do YOU the fans think about this album????
I loved it! only parts I didnt dig was the DJ's scratching some of the movie samples but still was fitting. I LOVED the big-band arrangement in some of his songs in this album. it made for a classic horror movie lover dream come true!!! Yet again there isnt ONE song I cant say I didnt enjoy, I wish it would have lasted longer... With Dead girl super star I was left feeling that the living dead girl was being in the spot light again, like a sequel. Again I enjoyed this album, LOVED IT! I know Zombie never has time to do art work, but the photos in this album were killer too.
out of 5 stars... I give give it 5 stars

I don't think it's underrated, but it's my least liked Rob Zombie record. It sounds to soft and electronic, with some exceptions like Bring Her Down (To Crippletown) or Scum of the Earth. I'm more a fan of the style of Educated Horses and Hellbilly Deluxe 2, because they sounds more... rough and kinda hand made I think.
From Germany, but I have nothing to do with the SS-Werewolfs!
You know speaking of radio play, the ONLY songs I ever hear are, More human then human, dragula, and sometimes living dead girl... what fucking gives? I have to hear nickelback (god help me) with thier 10,000 songs on the radio... I would be pushing harder for getting more ZOMBIE on the radio, with all the singles.... I mean come on. I want to hear what, sick bubblegum, foxy foxy, Feel so numb, and the rest of the singles, I dont have a cd in my SUV, my wife and I had to get rid of our newer cars, and get a crappy 1000 dollars ford 97 suv, with a radio... so I dont even have my cds with me while driving. Drives me crazy.
The Radio basically sucks. It's good to hear older songs from 50s-80s. The classic rock stations can be cool with playing a nice variety of material from those bands. But the 90s on up bands get a little screwed over.
It's that Catch 22 of... Radio only plays whats popular, but how can something get that popular without radio air play? (thats just a general statement. I know more and more bands get famous because of tv shows and internet and things, but you cannot argue that the radio is still a very important part of the media that helps introduce people to stuff they maybe never knew about before)
So it's like... those lesser known Zombie (and other bands) songs...they don't get requests because the general public arent really aware of it. Your casual listener is content with hearing Dragula a million times. It's the hardcore fans of whatever band that really are interested in the bands more rare or b-sides. But there is no excuse for a station not to play the new single...and I never heard Feel So Numb, Foxy Foxy, Sick Bubblegum, What?, etc... on radio.
Actually I heard "What?" once on Alice Coopers radio channel. He played it on Halloween after a brief interview with Rob. But they are friends and that was a special situation.
The only Zombie songs I've ever heard on the radio were Thunderkiss, More Human Than Human, Dragula, Living Dead Girl, and I believe I heard Meet The Creeper ONCE. Thats it. Sad, as Zombie has a great catalogue to choose from.
so very true MT... I have only heard foxy foxy, when it first came out for the radio as a single, and so I did with the others. I was the one that reache dout to Rob telling him "WHAT" the first single fom HB2 got played on the radio 2 weeks early, here in PA< Im sure someones head rolled for that one. I only catch the Coops radio show when I have to drive out to other parts of PA, and I love his show. I never get to hear thunerkiss anymore myself. But shocking as this sounds on my "classic rock" station I love, I hear some band I thought wasnt "classic rock" just yet... Metallica believe it or not.... BUt I agree what you said fully. But at least I get to come home, and put my cds in my cd player at home, and enjoy some zombie while doing my work....
Also in Germany radio sucks... They're playing all day the same stuff like Rihanna, Pink, Linkin Park or songs they're just popular these days... In Germany Rob Zombie isn't that much popular like in the USA, but one day they played Sick Bubblegum on the radio my cousin told me. Didn't know if it was the censored version. I think the Europe tour brought the Zombie back a little bit.

I dig sick bubblegum, its Rob giving some respect to the late Johnny Ramone. Johnny Ramone said thir music "the ramones" were sick bubblegum music. When I first heard it I thought it was about the movie .... uhhh I forget the movie, where the guy says, Im here to kick ass and chew some gum..... however Im all out of gum!!! and with Everything is boring, Which it is, Im happy that ROB... the person, "Made it" because alot of the SHIT out there bores me to death. Jesus Frankenstein? What a hit! I dig HBD2, Educated Horses to me was a laid back stripped down, some what counrty-ish "zombie" album.... I dug it. And he says something about Judge Roy Bean in that album too, I didnt know Rob knew about that... Made my day when I first heard that. BUt T.S.U. and Like a classic monster flick to me, I think each "zombie" album has its own vibe, like starting with El sexo has this "Comic horror book" vibe Astro creep has this "satanic horror movie" HBD1 has this " gory b horror movie vibe" T.S.U. has this Classic Monster movie vibe" E.D. has this " dirty country-ish thriller movie" vibe and HBD2 has this like "psycho movie vibe" Such as Taxi driver or Clock work Org. But thats just how my mind works, Im weird.
I never thought of Foxy Foxy as poppy. To me, it reminded me of The Doors or some 70s southern rock band. I thought it was a cool change of pace.
Rob doesn't really seem to be playing any of the "hits" or singles from any of the albums post Hellbilly Deluxe. We still get Thunderkiss, More Human Than Human, Superbeast, Dragula, and Living Dead Girl. What happened to Feel So Numb, Foxy Foxy, and What? I actually only heard What? played on just one leg of the HBD2 tour. And that was supposed to be the single! I like that song better than Sick Bubble Gum, personally, so maybe I'm biased. Back to EH...the other song promoted as a single for that record was Scorpion Sleeps and we NEVER heard that on any of the tours to my knowledge.
I hope on the upcoming Zombie tours he mixes it up a bit and plays more random songs that never were played before or not in a long time. It was really great seeing Pussy Liqour and Scum of the Earth being played. I'd kill to hear Meet The Creeper and Phantom Stranger performed once more. Plenty of other great ones on HBD2 as well. Werewolf, Baby for example.
I agree. thought I never seen a show yet, and well I been a fan since '96 HA! always something comes up, getting dealthly ill, or something. But anyway it's a shame he does not play those songs.. But then again, I would love to hear anything live, would be nice to hear Eletric Head Pt.1 that song is a mind warp. that and Welcome To Planet Motherfucker / Psychoholic Slag was two of my fave opening songs on a album...
The Sinister Urge is a great album, through and through, and is a much better sequel to Hellbilly Deluxe than HD2... flip the titles of those two albums, and the back catalog is zen. Doesn't matter much though, ultimately... what's in a name, right? It's all about the tunes. I've yet to meet a zombie tune I can honestly say I truly didn't like.
Come for the chicken-run blast-o-rama, stay for the werewolf women!
