The first two CD's that my mother ever let my buy as a kid were Pantera's "The Great Southern Trendkill" and "Astro-Creep: 2000" by White Zombie. This LP is a record that I've wanted to get my hands on now for a few years, motivated mostly by nostalgic values. Originally pressed on release in 1995 by Geffen Records, I wasn't aware until this week that it had been repressed in 2012 by Music On Vinyl with licence from Geffen. Picked this off the back wall at my local record store, seen completely at random. Black wax is the wider press, accompanied by a 180g variety and a coloured version.
As dated as this album sounds in 2014, it's still a relatively solid performance from the band and the stuff of theirs that I'm most familiar with and fond of. I'm unsure of how correctly this version replicates the 1995 edition, but it is a shame that all of Rob Zombie's excellent full colour artwork that accompanied the CD version isn't available here.

I still like this record. Although these days I definitely lean more towards Lasexisto as my go to White Zombie record. Good score
