"Have fun scrapin' all them brains off the road!" That's just one of the lively quotes peppering the between-song crevices on the soundtrack to Devil's Rejects, Rob Zombie's sequel to his 2003 horror genre throwback House of 1000 Corpses. The dialogue snippets add character to the set, just like the blood, shotguns, and verité mug shots of its artwork.

Overview

"Have fun scrapin' all them brains off the road!" That's just one of the lively quotes peppering the between-song crevices on the soundtrack to Devil's Rejects, Rob Zombie's sequel to his 2003 horror genre throwback House of 1000 Corpses. The dialogue snippets add character to the set, just like the blood, shotguns, and verité mug shots of its artwork. (To say nothing of the entirely separate album released from Banjo & Sullivan, the film's fictional honky tonkers.) Yeah, you can say whatever you want about Zombie. Just don't ever call him unimaginative. Devil's Rejects adheres to its time period with a brace of rock from 1973 through around 1975, and blends the tracks from James Gang ("Funk #49"), Three Dog Night ("Shambala"), and the Allmans ("Midnight Rider") with classic honky tonk from Kitty Wells and Buck Owens. It's a great blend of album rock, air guitar faves, eccentric picks, and country ramble -- it would be like the perfect radio road trip down I-65, if radio in America actually still sounded like this. Devil's Rejects also features three selections from '60s British rock dark horse Terry Reid, "Brave Awakening," "Seed of Memory," and "To Be Treated." All three stand up well. They suggest Led Zeppelin's folksier side -- "Treated" sounds a lot like "Stairway to Heaven" -- but could also be templates for 21st century troubadours like Ryan Adams or Damien Rice. Reid's also a creative, evocative choice next to workhorses from Skynyrd ("Freebird") and Joe Walsh ("Rocky Mountain Way"). Devil's Rejects closes with some hokey "radio spots" and a bumpkin rustle called "I'm at Home Getting Hammered (While She's Out Getting Nailed)" from that fantasy Nashville duo Banjo & Sullivan. Overall it's a thoroughly entertaining soundtrack, as happily crass and drive-in proud as the film itself. "And if you don't like it you can kiss my grits," as one of the B&S spots concludes. [The DualDisc edition is the only one to feature audio clips of the film. Its additional DVD side included the album in high resolution and Dolby Digital stereo, as well as a making-of featurette.]

Outstanding, simply outstanding. The ambience of this soundtrack is breathtaking, it grabs you by the balls, and makes you sit and listen from beginning to end. The decade appropriate 70's tunes only further fuel a potetially amazing film.

Oh man, what do we have here. At last, something that lives up to its mystique. Mr. Zombie, as usual, hints on psychotic perfection with this great release. His use of decade accurate songs is essential, and he does it with style. Because he delivers such great projects, he has and will remain my favorite artist. I'm looking forward to what he has to offer next.

Here we go again, another great soundtrack to what will definitely be another great Rob Zombie film. You need to buy this album, you MUST buy this album. The moment you pop this puppy in you're gonna be amped to see the film. An excellent selection of music, great sound-bites from the film, and even behind the scenes extras. What more could you want? Horror's newest auteur has done it again.
