Born Villain wasn't the worst, but it absolutely wasn't as good as this.

Born Villain is probably my least favorite of his, some of the last songs were good but other than that it was bland and uninspired, at least High end of Low had interesting guitarwork and different sounding stuff despite being largely mediocre. Eat Me, Drink Me is massively underrated and probably my favorite of his tbh

So I've been listening to this since the leak and I'm still getting used to it. I don't know, maybe I was expecting him to continue the revitalized industrial rock sound he brought back on Villain but this is completely different. Its like a bluesy fusion of Mechanical Animals and Eat Me, Drink Me which I'm not too sure I like. Deep Six and Third Day are awesome tracks though.



For everyone comparing this to Holy Wood, I see no comparison between the two. That album was very conceptual, dark, and aggressive and had some incredible songwriting. This feels a lot more laid back and not nearly as good.

I read the full interview with Manson from which the now infamous "I invented grunge" quote comes. He was joking. It's obvious in the interview, but when taken out of context by music "journalists" it comes across as a brag.



Anyway, pretty damned good album. I was surprised at how much I liked it. I do think his voice is too one dimensional at times, implementing the same vocal patterns in many of the songs. He wants to be Bowie, but doesn't have the same versatility.



Going to see him on the 26th; hopefully he can do it live.

Appreciate all the comments and critiques, everyone. I still think this album surprised me, considering I wasn't too fond of Manson's last few. I'm curious to hear whether he goes with this direction in future records.
