Rob Zombie Past, Present & Future ( Geffen/Universal ) Rating: NNN
Rob Zombie is one of those people I keep forgetting I like. When I put on this Past, Present & Future retrospective, as the second Thunder Kiss 65 kicks in I'm reminded that the man certainly has a way with pop hooks. The collection loses momentum for three tunes but rocks back again with More Human Than Human and comes and goes along the way. Brickhouse - featuring Lionel Richie and Trina (!) - proves that Zombie can bring on the funk, and you just gotta groove to Pussy Liquor. The package includes two new tracks and a DVD of 10 videos, two of which have never been released before.
