I'm a huge Manson fan but this album was disappointing to me. It all seems like broken heart teen clichés to me. Where is the edge? The society criticizing lyrics? I hope he has gotten over his self pity on his next album, has it not been for his god-like vocal this album would be a total waste of time. And no he is not as "shocking" as he used to be, but it doesn't matter it is no longer important, and to be honest he shouldn't attempt his old stunts anymore, it will just come of as a pathetic old man trying to be young again. I still love to see him live. Get over your girlfriend or whatever and get back to making great music that matters! - Just a silent prayer from a huge fan ;)
A very different feel to the older stuff. Can't help thinking it's an old man that's given up on trying to shock. Nice work with TIm Skold for a one off album, but glad he is getting back with GInger Fish and Twiggy Ramirez for the next one. Manson without Twiggy and Ginger just aint Marilyn Manson in my book.
damn, i don't even know what to think about his new album. i can't say it's awesome and i love it, but i can't say it's a holy crap and i hate it either. something about it makes me sick (maybe the atmosphere of Evan Rachel Wood how i imagine it),something about it makes me feel like if i was involved in some big mystery. fuck,i feel like such a fool.
