The second Rob Zombie track leaked from Hellbilly Deluxe 2 is “Sick Bubble Gum,” a dizzying mutha flucking journey that surpasses “What?” in production, but lacks in comparable riff assaults and diabolical programming. John 5’s diligent lead guitars finish out the tune in a manner similar to “War Zone” from The Punisher soundtrack, which means this song also lacks an adequate instrumental break mid way; a demonstration of poor orchestration. I’m not sure where Zombie is headed on the Hellbilly sequel at this point. It seems that if he offers the coherent lyrics of “Sick Bubble Gum,” an instrumental break where John 5 can shine, and some of that old infectious spookshow programming, he could have another solid album –Meds
