The title of White Zombie's first mainstream success promises some good, trashy fun, and boy does this album deliver. White Zombie is not a nihilistic, the-world-is-rotten heavy metal band; on the contrary, one doubts that they're in danger of taking anything too seriously, and the humor is audible in every riff. La Sexorcisto is rife with distorted guitars, snippets of dialogue from horror movies, and songs about fast cars ("Black Sunshine"), loose women ("Grindhouse (A-Go-Go)"), and the generally weird. Don't think about it too hard; sit back, relax, pop a cool one and crank up the stereo until it shakes your ceiling. -- Genevieve Williams

"When the band first made its appearance with "Make Them Die Slowly," they found themselves largely ignored by the listeners in the mainstream. There was good reason for this, too, because the album, while refined in portions that were scattered throughout the album, was something that was rough and unrefined, showcasing many and many a shortcoming. This didn't set the band back that much, though, because they decided to take these setbacks in stride and forge ahead and create something a bit more refined, incorporating the love of monster movies and harsh vocals with samples that found themselves quite at home. Within La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1, there are many things that didn't seem remarkably groundbreaking at the time but that did manage to do something that few bands had done before White Zombie. They managed to take this type of music and shove it into the listening ears of an audience that seemed to be craving more. Powered by the vocal stylings that many find almost impossible to understand and heavy tempos that seem to ebb with power, song after song drives its way onward, compressing harmony with the mentality that heavy is good. Perhaps best known for the song "Thunder Kiss '65," the album propelled its way forward with single after single being released, also gaining some notation with the 400 horsepower adrenaline surge called "Black Sunshine." Still, the album was far from completed by these pieces. From the onset of the greeting card "Welcome to Planet MF/Psycholic Slag" welcomed you to "planet pretty kill" to the wonderful depiction of "I Am Legend" and its world overrun by swarms of the vampiric, the album worked to spotlight obscurity in movie and ideas that many people hadn't been exposed to. Sampling the likes of "Faster Pussycat Kill Kill, a little "I am Electro," and "Night of the Living Dead," not to mention inviting Iggy Pop on board for Black Sunshine, it is something that, to this day, I still find myself enjoying. For someone looking to drown their listening ears in something pleasurable but that isn't to be taken too terribly serious, then this would be something to look into. That is, it would be if you don't mind a bit of profanity, some heavier sounds in your musical experience, and beats that might find themselves hanging in your mind. Be warned, it might make you want to go out and read "I Am Legend," too."
A classic album, not for children.

"Lemme guess? You went ahead and bought Rob Zombie's "Hellbilly Deluxe" before splurging on "The Sinister Urge" a few years later, right? And I bet when a friend handed you Astrocreep 2000 and claimed that you weren't a hardcore Zombie fan until you heard it, you probably had to change your shorts.
Of course, that means you probably have no idea what this album is.
Just look at it.
It's NOT Rob Zombie and it's NOT Astrocreep 2000. La Sexorcisto is the begining of the marriage of old, thrashy, unpleasant (but still classic) "Make Them Die Slowly" with the off-beat, pop-shock that would go on to make Zombie the ringleader of his own twisted circus of a solo career.
This is an album full of epic, desert-redneck road rock and it lopes and guns like metal should. Rob Zombie's digital meddling is nowhere to be heard on this album, and to be honest, you probably won't like it all that much.
This isnt' Dragula and it doesn't even pretend to be. This is big-time rock in a form that's almost too pure for a record with production this clean and riffs this crazy. I give it a five because I love it.
You might not."

"This is one of my favorites. So many grooves and solid jams. I gave it 4 because the mix is very weak. Sean's bass is inaudable, and the fidelity of J's guitar could have been stronger. However, these song's take you to a strange place and time and flow in and out of each other seamlessly via samples and sound effects. I miss these guys. This album makes your modern shock rockers look like total posers. If you dig Sabbath, older Metallica and Alice in Chains, you'll get alot out of this one."
