4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a Manson album worth it's namesake May 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
To tell you the truth, I nearly gave up waiting for the next great Marilyn Manson album. After 2003's The Golden Age Of Grotesque was released my appreciation for the band had started to wane. It felt as if Manson had moved from being the creepy musical genius to a commercial rock star. It just seemed as if the shock and awe factor that made the band so great in the the 1990's had gave way to a generic industrial rock band in the early 2000's. Then after a four year hiatus, the dreary goth rock Eat Me Drink Me was concieved to subpar fanfare. Don't get me wrong, the album had it's moments (e.g. If I Was Your Vampire, Are You the Rabbit?, and You and Me and the Devil Makes 3), but it really just fell flat when set up against other Manson albums. It just seemed to be more pop-orienated in it's approach rather then the rock sound that graced the previous endeavors. Then, in 2009, the return of Twiggy Ramirez as a full time band member brought the sense of relief that the band was truly whole and back again. Hell, the band interviews hinted at an album that could rival Antichrist Superstar in it's ferocity. So of course fans expected to see the Marilyn Manson of old. Instead, we were given a stripped down album that felt and sounded more like a compilation of songs then a "whole" album. The only tracks on the album that really stood out to me were Four Rusted Horses, Running to the Edge of the World, Unkillable Monster and I Have to Look Up Just to See Hell.So as you can see, it was understandable that I was somewhat sceptical about the newest Manson title.

4.0 out of 5 stars M&M - born again June 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I am the 100th review so I doubt if anyone is actually going to read this when making a decision as to whether or not they want to purchase this album. Therefore, I'm not going to bore you with the details you can read in any of the previous 99 reviews. I'll keep this quick, clean and neat.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's Back! May 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was not gonna write review for this cd. I hoped on amazon.com and saw a few 1 star reviews. All I wanna say is. For those who don't like this cd. What does he have to do to make you spoiled brats happy? This is an incredible cd. I could listen to hey cruel world and no reason 100 times in a row and not get bored with it. Those are his best 2 songs in a long , long , long time. Then you got pistol whipped. That song remined me of nine inch nails. Kick your teeth song. This is an very well written , very well produce cd. If you are reading the reviews on this cd. Please buyers don't be fooled by the 1 star reviews. Those people would complain about winning a million dollars and still not be happy. I will say this, this is a cd at first time you listen to you might say it's ok. The more you listen to it the more you can't stop listening to it. So If you like old MM i would advise you to give this cd a try and ignore the cry babies out there

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sound is back and its classic MM June 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I went to BEST BUY the other day, and there it was a new CD from MM Born Villain. I picked it up right away. At this time I can say after a few hits and misses from this amazing artist, I found him back again in this new CD. I found my head bopping to his music and that is a good sign for me. I had seen him in concert years ago in the 90's and what an amazing experience it was. What a showman. He has good lyrics, and speaks from an oppressive reality we live in. He works out his angst in his lyrics and music....Thanks for coming out with a great CD. You Rock. Although his naysayers say he is done for, but an artist cannot remain as fiercely angry forever as he was on Anti-Christ. He has his own journey and experiences as he ages and moves one from prior projects and how his life experiences are infused in those projects. He is in a another point in his life, let him explore, let him be, let him grow into the Hell Man that he is!

heard it
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.
