It's probably redundant to say that the director of Halloween 2 is out of ideas. When you take it upon yourself to remake one of the best-regarded horror films of all time, then sequel that remake you're either mainlaining hubris, trapped in a permanent state of semi-adolescence, or desperately treading water. Following these films up with a sequel to your hit album of twelve years past doesn't provide an answer but it certainly underlines the question a few times. In interviews Zombie has said that this album won't be his last musical effort but will be his last CD, as he feels discs have been made obsolete by digital downloads. As a devoted fan and collector of CDs I'm sad to hear that, but part of me hopes that the switch in formats reignites the spark that made Rob Zombie's earlier work so much fun - the last thing the world needs is Hellbilly Deluxe 3.
