Overview

Past, Present & Future is the first ever Rob Zombie retrospective. The collection is steeped both visually and aurally in the scary monsters, sexy women, and schlock horror images that have always adorned Zombie's death's-head calling card; from a strictly musical standpoint, his turgid industrial sludge and beyond-the-grave vocals benefit greatly from the set's liberal editing. That's because Zombie has always had one fabulously filthy gear, and his pedal is always scraping the metal; Past's 19 tracks simply streamline his career's death race into one satisfying 2000-mile straightaway. "Thunder Kiss '65," "Dragula," and the incredible, impossible, wonderfully stupid "More Human Than Human" attack the eardrums with toxic vengeance; collaborations with Alice Cooper and Howard Stern approach the proto-industrial grind of KMFDM; and kooky covers of "I'm Your Boogieman" and "Brickhouse" run the originals' disco beat through a freaky fun house filled with lurid porn samples and booty-shaking bottom end. (The latter track even pulls poor Lionel Richie into a duet with Rob and raunchy Trick Daddy protégée Trina). "Pussy Liquor" is just dumb, but again, you have to be amazed at Zombie's ability to get away -- and even do well with -- such stupidity. After all, behind the dreads, monster makeup, and platform boots, Zombie is a likeable, talented creative with a flair for reinvention. Like so much of his source material, his work isn't meant for deep contemplation -- only chomping-at-the-bit consumption. That's why he can make it sound like he invented the word "Yeah!" In addition to its host of past guilty pleasures, Past, Present & Future includes two previously unreleased songs and a DVD with ten Zombie-directed music videos, three of them never before seen. Never known for his humbleness, Zombie also designed the accompanying full-color, 36-page booklet, which includes a bizarre photo timeline in which the Astrocreep seems to age 50 years in less than 20. [This clean version removes some of the album's more colorful language.]

This album contains most of White Zombie and Rob Zombie's essential hits, with the exception of the hits off his latest stuff & the Punisher: Warzone soundtrack. There are a couple of tracks I probably would have left off this album, and perhaps a few others I would have added onto it, but overall this album contains essential Zombie! I plan to pick this up eventually!

WOW...what a CD! I realize that the vast majority of it is stuff that's already been released, but what a great job of picking the tracks to be included. It has everything....just as the title states: old White Zombie, a good representation of Rob's solo songs, and two new tracks (which are a little different, but they definitely have the potential to "grow on you"). This disc is a MUST for newcomers to Zombie...and even for those who own all of the previous releases (it's nice to have so many favorites on one disc).

Simply put, an amazing cd. The music is fast, loud, and full of catchy lyrics and random sound bites. It's only failing is around track 15-17, where the music slows down considerably and gets a bit random (I question Rob's decision to do a cover of Blitzkreig Bop.) Great overall, the best (and only) Rob Zombie retrospective.

This CD is superb! It's got all the smash hits by Rob Zombie on one CD like "Thunder Kiss '65" and "Dragula." For all the Rob Zombie fans out there, this is a great choice - how often do you get as good a compilation CD as this? It would've been a whole lot better though, if the booklet had more White Zombie pictures. The other great thing about this CD is the 10 music video DVD (some are even unreleased!!) that comes with it. There are so many freebies with this CD, but it is still moderately priced!

The best Rob Zombie album. I've been waiting for something like this for a long time now. I am a huge Rob fan and if you read this Rob, You Rock Man!! I recommend this album to any true fan. It has songs from White Zombie all the way up to Rob's solo. The DVD is incredible.

This is a great buy. I have been a fan of white zombie for as long as I can remember, and I love that I can see all of their old videos again. It really blew my mind. It has the best of White Zombies song, plus all the new classics that Rob has put out over the past few years. Personally, I think the best part of the package is the DVD extra. Rob Zombie is a genius when it comes to making videos, I just wish the Black Sunshine video was included, but it has every other one available.
