WHITE ZOMBIE / Astro-Creep: 2000 – Songs of Love, Destruction and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head (1995)

WZ's most commercially successful album sold millions of copies, but it's not their best work. It's boring. Film samples in music are something I really enjoy when done correctly, there's a perfect balance that can be found between the two, but you won’t find it in Astro-Creep. Too many intros interrupt the flow, and when the music eventually does come it's uninspired. They peaked on the previous album and, unable to progress musically, simply go around in circles on this one.

Songs of Note: Creature of the Wheel; Blood, Milk and Sky

This album is crap and I'd probably give it the same rating...

I love it so.

:laugh: I know that feeling.
Not for this album but for other things.
