About this album

The High End of Low is the seventh studio album by Marilyn Manson. Sean Beavan, who mixed Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Eat Me, Drink Me, is co-producer of the album along with Chris Vrenna. The album was released on May 25 2009 in the United Kingdom and May 26, 2009 in the United States. The album’s first radio single “Arma-Goddamn-Motherfuckin-Geddon” was released on May 18, 2009. Reviews were mixed, with some criticizing the repetitiveness of the music and lacklustre ideas, while others praised a more human Manson following his divorce, and a return to the sound of the well-received Mechanical Animals. The album debuted at number four on the Billboard charts, falling to number 24 and 60 on its second and third weeks.

On November 29, 2007, it was reported that Marilyn Manson planned to begin writing songs for their seventh studio album. Pre-production began following the band’s Rape of the World tour, which ended on March 2, 2008. Jeordie “Twiggy Ramirez” White, who had collaborated with Manson on numerous previous projects was confirmed as a collaborator, and also mentioned as possible contributors were Kerry King (of Slayer) and James Iha (former guitarist of The Smashing Pumpkins), though ultimately only White would be involved. The album was recorded in Manson’s Hollywood Hills studio and the first single (“We’re From America”) was made available for download from MarilynManson.com on March 27th, 2009.

The album received mixed reviews; some critics felt it sounded diluted and repetitive while others praised the album for showing Manson’s more human face after his divorce and best material since Mechanical Animals.

    This is not his worst album, and obviously not his best.[2]

    Lyrically weak. Most of these songs just sound whiny and bitter in a bad way. The instruments and composition are solid though I wish there were more hard tracks. Could have been a great album if they spent more time on word choice and flow.

    really under-appreciated album. i think it's excellent. better than portrait, GAOG, EMDM and BV in my mind.

    This is not his worst album, and obviously not his best. But this album have something special in the lyrics, something that I love to hear. All the feeling of pain and the alternative sounds mixed are simply amazing.

    It took me a long time, but...I think this is one of his best, definitely top 5. Obviously not better than the first 3, but I think we all underestimated how well this has aged. Born Villain is trying to be this but it fails me.

    so this album is kinda shitty, but it has some gems! I Have to Look Up Just to See Hell, 15, and Running to the Edge of the World are amazing. They're...well ... the high end of low. *ba dum tss*
