AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger

It's only fitting that writer, director, and producer Rob Zombie would request the services of his fellow bandmate, the multifaceted guitar player John 5, in providing the score for his 2013 horror film, Lords of Salem. The resulting soundtrack, which according to John 5 is comprised of "material that wouldn't distract audiences but also wouldn't be easily forgotten," also features a handful of non-score tracks, including "Blinded by the Light" (Manfred Mann's Earth Band), "Give It to Me Baby" (Rick James), "The Spirit of Radio" (Rush), and "All Tomorrow's Parties" (the Velvet Underground & Nico), the latter of which serves as the film's musical centerpiece.
