Editorial Reviews

EXPLICIT. 2009 release, the seventh studio album from one of the biggest Rock superstars on the planet. The album as a whole is a triumph, with Manson also exploring his more introspective side. The album marks the highly anticipated reunion with longtime friend and foil Twiggy Ramirez, together for the first time in nearly a decade. Produced by Manson, Vrenna and Twiggy, The High End of Low was recorded in his Hollywood Hills studio. Manson says of the new album, "I think my life definitely ended and began. The record sounds very final, but it's almost optimistic - though that feels like a strange word to use. It's a phoenix from the fire and a redemption resurrection."

I approached "The High End of Low" the way I would a corroded anti-tank landmine--hyper-cautious, and nauseous with anxiety: I expected to either be totally finished with Manson, or be reveling in his return to form.

What I got is what I should have ultimately anticipated: just enough to bring me back to the well next time. "The High End of Low" is a step back in the right direction (which I largely attribute to Mr. White's return), but on my third listen through this album, I was thunderstruck when I finally put my thumb on what had been bugging me. The thing that Brian has lost over time could probably be mapped convincingly against a chart chronicling his loss of band-mates. His ego has spilled out of control and damaged his art. This is the second (arguably third) album from Manson the man, as opposed to Manson the band.

Let me be clear--I intend no character attack. Whatever his future efforts produce, I will remain a steadfast fan of Marilyn's work on the strength of his 2nd, 3rd, and 4th albums. However, his art has become unbalanced toward the personal, which is a disappointing regression in my eyes.

There is variety, wit, and a sense of play in the sonic/musical qualities of this album. There is also a shocking lack of variation in lyrical subject matter. Listen to this record carefully, and skip to the next song any time you hear one of the following words: I, Me, My, Mine, You, Your, We, Us, Our. The first-person narrative repitition is mind-numbing.

"Antichrist Superstar" is an industrial-metal stew of atheism, young-adult angst, and porn-shop occultism strained through melodrama, three-act structure, and The Church of Satan.

I have been a Marilyn Manson fan for almost 15 years now, so I've seen him through his many and varied incarnations. I have to echo what a writer for Rolling Stone once said: Marilyn Manson is the only true "artist" out there in rock and roll today.

This album certainly doesn't disappoint. There are catchy songs with nice hooks like Leave a Scar and Blank and White, that appeal to casual listeners.

But there are also heavy songs for industrial metal fans like Unkillable Monster and I Have to Look Up Just to See Hell. And there are more artistic, deep tunes like Into the Fire (which has an excellent piano introduction) and Running to the Edge of the World.

The WOW track has a sound that's reminiscent to Dope Hat from his Smells Like Children album. In fact, I can hear influences from each of his previous albums on The High End of Low.

This isn't cookie-cutter music, so it appeals to a narrower audience. It didn't go before a focus group. It wasn't castrated before it left the studio. I get the feeling music like this is closer to the artist's vision than the consultants' vision. They would only water it down. It's how music used to be in the good old days before corporate profits were put above the music, and there's very little of it left these days.

There's always something magical about Manson's voice and the way the band composes their music. For me, Marilyn Manson and my other favorite band Rammstein stand head and shoulders above the rest of what's out there.

This is an album that I know I'll be listening to for a long time to come, and I highly recommend it.

In the 90's, I oscillated from liking and disliking Manson. I loved the band's sound along with his thematically inventive lyrics and striking vocals, but gathered from his look and interviews that he was just shocking for the sake of shocking. The vivid yet desolate aural landscape and hyperrelavent theological, political, sociological, and ultimately personal sentiments of "Holywood" convinced me otherwise. It demonstrated that his shock was a means to an artistic/intellectual end. After hearing that album, I had a much deeper appreciation of his past albums.

Then the trajectory turned downward. "Golden Age of Grotesque" didn't seem to say as much as his previous albums, lyrically or musically (especially the last third of the album). But overall, it was a clever indictment of our culture. "Eat Me, Drink Me" had raw righteousness and more tone colors, but some songs were noticeably bland at times. Upon hearing that Twiggy was returning, I anxiously awaited a return to form on the new album.

In short, "The High End of Low" isn't a return to form. It seemingly expotentiated the bland qualities of his last effort while offering roughly nothing new. Repeated power chords, repeated mantras, repeated "shocking" lines nowhere near as emotionally engaging or thought-provoking as any of his old albums.

I listened to every song, but barely made it through the half-way point of most of them. The few things I liked were the feel of Devour and We're From America, the acoustic riff of Four Rusted Horses (but again, it repeated too much), and the structure of Running to the Edge of the World. All a little new, and little different, a little metal. But "little" is the key term, as these few things were dwarfed by the quarter-baked blandness of the vast majority of the album.

What is up with the end of Devour?
The Devour ending might be a joke or something, you never know with Manson. But in "Blank And White"--you didn't get a censored or edited version, did you? Because they're supposed to be the line "shoot up the school or shoot the President or whatever" right there, I think.... Read More

The devil can do whatever he wants.
Marilyn Manson's older music is genius. They're masterpieces. He started going downhill with The Golden Age of Grotesque, although the artwork for that album done by Helnwein is fantastic . He used to be one of my favorite bands. The only song I've really liked by him since then is You And Me... Read More
