With Zombie Girl, the fan always knows what to expect. Killer Queen is once again an album with danceable electro songs. If there are some styling changes, then you’ll find them among the covers. For example, The Cure’s Fascination Street is reworked in an electro style, just like Berlin’s Pleasure Victim (in that song you still hear a lot of 80s influences).

Zombie Girl is keen on swinging grooves and focused electro beats, just listen to Panick Attack, that already has been released as a single.

The problem with this kind of songs is that they’re all similar, as we challenge you to find the differences between Thorazine, Killer Queen or Panick Attack. However, the variation can be found in Night Drive or Kiss Kiss Kiss, that’s nonetheless a tad too childish.

Finally, there are some remixes that are included on a second CD. On the remix of Killer Queen a distorted male voice is unsed, that sounds like dark electro. A nice album, not that it will make any new fans.

Met Zombie Girl weet de fan waar die aan toe is. Killer Queen staat ook nu weer voornamelijk vol met dansbare electronummers. Grootste stijlveranderingen komen eigenlijk van de covers. Zo wordt The Cure op een leuke manier door de electromangel gehaald tijdens Fascination Street en krijgt ook Berlin met Pleasure Victim dezelfde benadering. Dat laatste nummer blijft overigens wel erg hangen in jarentachtiggeluid. Voorts hakt Zombie Girl de nodige spaanders met swingende grooves en gerichte electrobeats. Denk aan het prima en al eerder op single uitgebrachte Panick Attack.

Het probleem bij dit soort nummers is dat ze op elkaar lijken, want zoek de verschillen maar eens tussen ThorazineKiller Queen en het net genoemde Panick Attack. De variatie komt van nummers als het slepende, maar lekker uitgevoerde Night Drive en het te kinderlijk aandoende Kiss Kiss Kiss.

Tot slot volgen nog een aantal remixes. Er is daarvoor zelfs een release uitgebracht met een tweede cd. Met Killer Queen in de remix op de oorspronkelijke cd gaan ze zelfs, met behulp van een vervormde mannenstem, de richting van de dark electro uit. Een leuke plaat, maar nieuwe fans zal die niet opleveren.
