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.

I bought this album very skeptically after hearing Marilyn Manson's last 2 albums that were terrible and were extremely lacking in every category. This new album is an attempt to try to blend the past and evolve at the same time. It's about time that the guy realizes that he can't be the same shock-rock icon now when his prime was about 14 years ago.

This album fuses the feel and sound of "Portrait of an American Family" with completely new changes in style and songwriting. Old Marilyn Manson fans will either love it or hate it. Here are the pro's:

- Twiggy Ramirez and Chris Vrenna helping on this album made a lot of difference in the music. Twiggy's added songwriting ability and Vrenna's producing and mixing improved the quality of the music drastically.

- The band goes into genres like folk-rock, alternative rock, electronic-based song structures, and even blues/country rock territory. While doing this, their signature sound amazingly always still remains.

-Brian Warner's vocals range from brooding baritones, to screaming with conviction, and singing very beautifully and melodically.

Now the cons:

-this albums worst enemy is it's lyrics. Brian Warner sometimes writes some very clever song lyrics here but on some songs, an 8th grader could've done a better job.
Also, he really needs to stop involving religion and metaphors to it in his songs because that cow has been milked dry. When he goes there, it sounds like a desperate cry to get back his old fans from his glory days. He should drop politics too because he also sounds like he's really reaching there too. If he wants to stay on the right course, he needs to abandon his old persona/style and do something else that's just as creative and good.
