As a kind of pop culture renaissance man, you could almost forget that writer, director, and producer Rob Zombie made (and continues to make) his bones as a musician. Fortunately, Universal Music is prepared to remind you with the Classic Album Collection
. A box set containing 1998's Hellbilly Deluxe
, 2001's Sinister Urge
, 2006's Educated Horses
, and 2003's compilation album Past, Present, & Future
, this collection gathers the bulk of Zombie's releases while on Geffen Records. Containing the bulk of his studio albums, the set makes for an instant Rob Zombie collection, though its lack of bonus materials makes it an artifact that will better serve the newly initiated than the die-hard fans.
