Album Notes

Low budget but all heart, the film Halloween Party comes off as a cross between a Lifetime Cable Network movie and an American Pie sequel. Jumble those movies' soundtracks, add some blues-rock, '90s throwback R&B, and a "Monster Mash" vibe, and you've got the general idea of the good times included here, although there is a "low budget" aftertaste. Error 404's butt-rockin' theme song "Monster Party" is all good times at the dive bar save the synthetic drums that provide the sterile beat underneath, while elsewhere there are demo-quality recordings and flat bits of sound lifted right from some laptop USB drive. On the other hand, there's the "all heart" bit, best displayed by XX Bottom's "Voodoo," which is as sexy and as damned as Screamin' Jay Hawkin's "I Put a Spell on You." Special mention goes to Analogue Revolution and their track "Eyes," which moderns up Rockwell's paranoid R&B hit "Somebody's Watching Me," but this charming and underfunded soundtrack is best left for fans of the film. ~ David Jeffries
