The tumultuous relationship Marilyn Manson has cultivated with the public through his genre-defying music and anti-status quo message of thinking for oneself has resulted in sold-out tours, protests, legal battles, adoration, hate, more than 50 million records sales, award-winning distilled spirits, several Grammy nominations and, most importantly, a long list of some of the most enduring and powerful singles ever, such as "Lunchbox," "Get Your Gunn" "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" "The Beautiful People," "Antichrist Superstar," "Tourniquet," "The Dope Show," "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)," "The Fight Song," "mOBSCENE," "Heart-Shaped Glasses," "Coma White" and "If I Was Your Vampire."

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.

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.Read more ›

My world is less bleak because Marilyn Manson still makes graphic, controversial music that non-conformists can find refuge in, refuge from this senseless, hypocritical world. He does not exactly reinvent himself with each album, but he does change his product enough to keep it from sounding dated, while staying basically on the same page for his fans. The production on this album is livelier, a little less weighty, than that on some of his previous albums. Most of the tracks feature more singing of melodies than I have heard on previous albums. But in general, there is no lack of the things for which Manson has become famous, including dark themes and loud, crunching or searing guitars.

My ears pricked up at some sounds and ideas that stand out. "Slo-Mo-Tion" opens with a bass riff that sounds like some early 80's hit (I can't quite remember who or what it was). "The Gardener" and "Breaking The Same Old Ground" both have an ornamental techno background. "The Flowers Of Evil" is set to what is practically a dance beat. For contrast, "Lay Down Your G****** Arms" is loaded with Led Zeppelin blues-rock sounds. And "Murderers Are Getting Prettier Every Day" might be the hardest rocking track on the album; look out because it has police sirens in it that might startle you if you are out driving at night and not too, um, alert. In "Born Villain", when Manson sings "There is a taste for blood/And it's deep inside", I think he means all of us, not just himself. And while we're talking lyrics, "Overneath The Path Of Misery" starts out with a quote from "Macbeth" and manages to mention Oedipus and Persephone too. You gotta love that, backed by hard rock and a sort of tribal beat. In other lyrics that I like, Manson identifies as a supernatural being.
