Editors’ Notes

Though Marilyn Manson lives to shock people with his outrageous behavior, his music is surprisingly conventional. Anyone acquainted with the works of David Bowie, Alice Cooper and the decades of punk and industrial music that followed should have no problem acclimating to Manson’s murky hard rock stew. With his band now in the past, Manson teams with bassist Tim Skold in a home recording studio to make what on the surface seems to be his most intimate album to date. At times, the sound still expands to grand dimensions but mostly Manson and Skold create thick, dense guitar patches that feel as if the world is closing in on them. “If I Was Your Vampire” kicks things off with a slow, creepy riff that sounds as if Manson is being physically restrained from tearing the roof off. Elsewhere, he employs a stack of wah-wah guitar (“They Said That Hell’s Not Hot”) and burbling synths to support his ragged croak of a voice. The days of cataclysmic destruction may be past — this is not Mechanical Animals — but the dawning of a new hard rock day has Manson feeling pretty apprehensive. And that’s a good thing for listeners hooked on his doomsday scenarios.

Customer Reviews

(Sigh of relief)

For those of you as appalled by Hear Shaped Glasses as I was, DO NOT LET THE SINGLE DISCOURGAE YOU FROM BUYING THIS. That song is the only one on this record that I don't care for at all. All the other songs are grittier and call to mind the POAF days (the opening riff to Are You the Rabbit). The entire album is mid-tempo and entirely different from anything Manson has created in the past. More mature MM will love this while the more shallow ones will hate it and think that Manson has gone "soft." Yes, this album is Manson throwing somewhat of a pity party for himself, but he is also celebrating ridding himself of his controling ex-wife. True, the angry anthems about drugs and hatred will be missed, but this is Manson all grown up. But if you look closely, the anger is still there, lurking beneath the surface in the tribal drum beats, snarling guitars and Manson's signiture croak.

Putting Holes in Modern Rock

Ok, let's get the obvious out of the way: YES, Eat Me, Drink Me is different than his other music. But, take a look at his career, starting with the Spooky Kids. Every single album marked another notch in his musical evolution. When Anti-Christ came out, as rocking as we know it to be now, it was slammed by fans of POAF and SLC, but did that end his career? NO, it launched him into a true rock superstar, giving him fans across the world. From there, moving on to Mechanical Animals, most people's least fav. MM album, he chose to explore the electronic aspects of his talents. Honestly, while not hard and as rocking as his previous albums, it would still contribute to his changing sound and style, giving fans a precursor to his covers of 80s songs later on. I will not go into every album, but each new album gives us one more piece of Manson, revealing more and more of his soul. He matures with each album, growing more and more into a true artist, leaving more and more of his shock and glamour behind. This is never more true than with this new album. Incredibly personal, dark, and full of the entire spectrum of emotions, EMDM shows us, I believe, the inner workings of Manson, and in fact Brian Warner. Still wearing makeup (though not nearly as much), these are his real feelings, his real essence. He directly thanks his Mom and Dad in the few credits there are, something that represents Brian reaching out, not just Marilyn Manson. Enjoy this record, if you are a true fan of the man AND the music, as this is the closest you will ever get to him without going to a show.

A weak offering.

Well, despite the multiple ups-and-downs that Marilyn Manson albums seem to have (regardless of what you feel those ups-and-downs are, specifically), I can't imagine anyone would be able to see this album as anything but a large downer. Weakest release to date. Songs are unimaginative and vacant; a gothic emo, if you will.

Marilyn Manson, the self-proclaimed "Antichrist Superstar," became a mainstream antihero, much to the chagrin of conservative politicians and concerned parents. His vision of dark, arty, industrial metal pushed many of his singles -- including "The Dope Show," "The Beautiful People," and a cover of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" -- into the upper reaches of the modern rock charts during the late '90s and early 2000s. Born Brian Warner, Manson was raised in Canton, Ohio. At the age...
