I love Marilyn Manson and I have a great deal of respect for his views and his music. However, ……he has been kinda flakey as of late. First off, his lyrics are not quite up to speed on this record. Anybody who has a brain knows that Marilyn Manson writes the best lyrics in rock music today. Sadly, there is nothing great about the lyrics on this album. The most annoying aspect of this CD is the stale plain sound of many of the songs. Also, the theme is bland…Basicly Manson wrote an entire album about crap like getting a devorce from Dita Von Teese and How that stupid band (MCR) stold his act. Sheesh…come the hell on Mr. Manson!!!! I miss the days of Antichrist Superstar. I wish that Manson and Trent Reznor were still making records together, still on tour together, ….since those days have passed, Manson hasn’t done anything that is as much fun to be apart of. Anyways, I like three songs (“Evidence”, “Heart Shaped Glasses”, “If I Was Your Vampire”) on this album, but all in all I think it is by far the least interresting album Manson has ever made. I shure hope his movie is going to be better than this album. Oh well…Marilyn Manson is still one of the greatest entertainers alive today regardless of a few recent flops.
