It has taken me five weeks to write a review because I didn't know what to think of "Born Villain" when I first listened to it. I often listen to albums while working on the latest novel. As a result, unless an album is particularly amazing or utterly awful, my attention is divided. With the crap playing on the radio today, it's not difficult to see that most music is meant to be background noise. You have six year old girls singing along with songs about sex and violence. You have the Justin Bieber's and Taylor Swift's who are selling albums because they have pretty faces. You have Top 40 hits that literally say nothing, but as long as the beat is cool, right?
I finally forced myself to shelve the all-American novel, turn out the lights, put on "Born Villain" and just listen. I'll be honest. This is not "Antichrist Superstar", "Mechanical Animals" or "Holywood". What this IS, is a darn good album with only a few hiccups. MM indicated in a Loudwire interview that "Born Villain" would be the ultimate concept album. Well, it's not Pink Floyd or The Moody Blues as it pertains to concept albums, but it's an admirable effort.
There are 13 tracks, 9 of which are very good. This is a challenging album--much more so than "Mechanical Animals", but not as much fun. It's a listen that needs to be taken seriously. I commend the effort, and I enjoy the output. After "Eat Me, Drink Me," I was extremely concerned that Manson's era was over.Read more ›

Totally disagreed.. and after hearing it several times, I fail to see where you came to that conclusion. I think this is his best album vocally.. at least for a long time. Only one song on here sounds like "reading" in my opinion.. and that song is meant to.
