It is a must have for any Rob Zombie (or just plain metal fan) BUy this.

THE SINISTER URGE, by Rob Zombie is most definately one of the best metal albums of the year so far.
Martin Lemos
All Zombie songs sound sort of the same, but like a good Ramones album, that's kind of the point.

This album doesn't seem to enjoy the popularity of Hellbilly Deluxe, Rob Zombie's first solo release, but I consider The Sinister Urge the better album of the two. The music seems to be more important this time around, as Zombie experiments with or conjures up new means by which to communicate his unique message. (go to) California, for example, seems to begin with a strange lilting sound to it, and Zombie's voice is somewhat subdued on the verses, providing a nice contrast with the more forceful chorus. Of course, there is plenty of hard rocking on this album, especially on the three most familiar tunes: Never Gonna Stop (the red, red kroovy), Feel So Numb, and Demon Speeding. Demon Speeding reminds me a lot of the Hellbilly Deluxe tracks, but the other new songs have a different sound and style than what Zombie has given us before. These songs are catchier and are more prone to hang around in your head reminding you of their visceral greatness; some might say Zombie got a little soft and added a touch of pop to a few tracks here, but I don't think that is the case at all. If he has added anything, it is a complexity that makes his music all the more impressive.

One song that certainly deserves special mention is Iron Head, which features none other than Ozzy Osbourne helping out on the vocals; the way he and Zombie alternate lines makes Ozzy's input especially effective. Dead Girl Superstar is a great hard-rocking track, and I also really like Bring Her Down (To Crippletown), another song which features a dramatic contrast between the verses and chorus. Scum of the Earth isn't bad, but I would consider it the only light-weight song on the album. There really isn't as much filler material on here as some might think. Sinners Inc.

After 3 long years of Rob Zombie's absence (Aside from a zillion remixes and soundtracks) my anticipation was very high for this CD. After listening to it, I realized that this is even better than I expected it to be. "Sinister Urge" is an album that combines old with new. It will please die-hards of White Zombie, and people who enjoy Rob's more catchy solo stuff. Just like the old b-horror movies Rob emulates, his music is pure entertainment, an adrenaline rush. You won't find lyrics that have social or political impact. No, just pure entertainment. The music on here is very catchy and at the same time, very heavy. It's definetly an improvement over "Hellbilly Deluxe." The guitar work on here is definetly better than before. It drives home the horror movie sound that Rob's lyrics are trying to convey (especially on Demon Speeding). Overall, you can't go wrong with Sinister Urge. It has less filler than Hellbilly Deluxe and it really is a landmark album for Rob. Let's see what he can do with his movie debut next.

This is an interesting Edited CD, mainly because none of the actual lyrics have been edited. There wasn't originally any cursing on this CD to begin with (except for a brief sample that says "shake your...proper," which has been left in). There WAS originally some nudity in the packaging, which has been blurred out in this version.
So the only actual editing in this CD takes place in the packaging. This seems really odd... but remember, the Parental Advisory labels read "Explicit CONTENT," not "Explicit Lyrics" - so it kind of makes sense.

Putting on a Rob Zombie cd after listening to something like Slipknot is like following up a viewing of Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer with Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!...both may sound sinister, but where Slipknot's music is a relentless (albeit listenable) assault on the senses, Rob Zombie has more fun with the heavy genre, a cool, dopey blast.
The songs on Sinister Urge are basically the same as those on Hellbilly Deluxe, or even White Zombie's output several years ago. Zombie's vocals are alternately snarled, grunted, or hollered, there are the same slick, but simple guitar riffs, the heavily overdubbed millenial disco percussion that has become Zombie's trademark, the odd "Hey, yeeeaaahh!", guest spots by venerable metal gods (Ozzy this time) and the requisite samples lifted from old B movies. Comparing the two albums, I can't really recommend one over the other. They're just too similar.
But there's plenty of fun to be had. Zombie's duet with Ozzy on 'Iron Head' is classic Eighties headbanger fare with his own trademark twists (see above), 'Go To California' puts a menacing twist on the road song (complete with sultry female backup vocals), 'Feel So Numb' is an irresistable metal rave-up in the style of 'Dragula', and 'House Of 1000 Corpses' (which contains samples from Zombie's slasher flick of the same name) has a bit of a goofy Nick Cave feel to it.
In a time where most metal music focuses so much on the negative, any release by Rob Zombie is a welcome breath of smelly, skanky air. If you love old-school metal, slasher flicks, and the films of the great Russ Meyer (like yours truly), you'll get a real kick out of this fun album.

As the title of this review might hint at, there wasn't a whole lot of music on this album. I mean what there was kicked, but it seems they just threw together a few songs, had some wierd tracks and filler, and put it on selves. Maybe Geffin figured people would be angry so they added a nice extra CD with it that has a whole bunch of metal bands and their good songs (some famous some not so famous). They also put on the album Scum of the Earth which I think was pretty cheap because it was realeased on a soundtrack a whole while ago and I have heard it a bunch. Rob seems to be getting lazy in the whole music department and is focusing on his movies and whatever the hell else he does. Anyway this is pure Rob Zombie, good as the last one but not as much. It actually contains 39 minutes of stuff which even counting all of it is nothing compared to La Sexorcisto and its 70 some minutes of pretty much pure metal. I say if you are a huge Zombie fan get it, like the songs there are, and hope on the next he puts more.
