pale emperor sounds promising. so excited to see MM coming back around and out of the electronic sounding phase. he's got a killer band playing with him this tour and i really think he's got a great comeback coming with this new lp.

Didn't like him in the 90's. I was way too punk. But then in about 2005 or so, I realized that Mechanical Animals might as well have been a David Bowie release. That's when I got on board. I like the glam-ish albums (Mechanical Animals, Holy Wood...) more than the metal albums of the 90's. His newer stuff is a bit more generic screamy dance music, but it's still pretty good.

I have never listened to Eat Me Drink Me or The High End of Low, which I think is when people have felt he slumped. But the fact is people all artists who are around for any length of time slump. Holy Wood is freaking fantastic. I love Antichrist and Portrait and Mechanical Animals as well. From what I have read and heard he has Twiggy back. His new album soon to be released is influenced by Slayer and said to be more of a death metal type approach. Will be interesting to see what he comes up with. I'm looking forward to it! With over 50 million albums sold, those of us who are fans are hardly alone.

I have been a fan since I was 12( dopehat) after the golden age of grotesque come out I like it however it was very different. After that however I have been very disappointed in his writing and composing abilities..

Marilyn Manson's quite a rock star, that's for sure.
while i must say i have been a fan since 1996 (Antichrist Superstar that is) my fandom has had it's ups and downs. Mechanical Animals was a very high point, and i kind of lost interest after that (though i still have every full length album he's released since.) Around the pre-release time of Eat Me, Drink Me my fandom began anew. I was excited for the first time in a long time to hear from my ol' favorite. I was not disappointed, I enjoyed Eat Me, Drink Me quite a bit, but something was still not all there. I finally met the man himself at a signing for EMDM and found him to be a very kind and generous person. His new album which is in the works (and his first album with original bassist Twiggy who departed after Holy-Wood)has definitely got my buzz and i'm ready to experience this coming era of Marilyn Manson

OK, Marilyn has a great head on his shoulders, he does, but what he lacks is tact in his progressive confusion which is his artwork, lifestyle, and messages. His lyrics, often naive and filled with ridiculous plays-on-words to act as intellectual originality, are never the highlight of the act. His concert (for Antichrist Superstar's release) was my first concert, and it ranks as one of the best concerts I've been to. Theatrically speaking, the man knows how to throw a concert. His ego has risen through time, which makes his releases and his credibility wane through the years. He was at his best during the Antichrist album's era and before, when there was no sure thing with his band, and the only thing he had going for him was a band full of wackjobs who didn't care that they looked like a travelling sideshow. That's when everything was truly original and nothing shocked parents more and all that hooplah. I want to see Marilyn get less polished (like he is now with that businessman-like approach to goth-wear) and get more crazy and unkempt like he was, because this new Manson is way to safe for anyone to adhere to anymore...even the Hot Topic crowd know that, and that's pretty pathetic.

I might be a minority here, but I can say that don't like musical endeavors of Mr. Manson. Brilliant businessmen ? Absolutely ! Great musician/songwriter ? Not really. I admit that I loved him as a kid and so did many other kids. Its hard to tell, though, whether it was because of his image and extreme views/interest in perversion (you know - sticking the cross up your ass and such) or because of music. I fell in love with his pictures, long before I heard the music. And right now it seems to me that all of his controversial moves were done in order to cover up music that's not really interesting or innovative nor it contains anything original. Its almost the same for Kiss and Bon Jovi (certainly, completely different bands) which might gather millions on stadiums with their theatrics and whatnot, but in the end music itself is as vapid and dull as possible.

One of the few artists who pride themselves in change and progression. Unfortunately i can't say i liked much of what came after Antichrist Superstar, since at that point he became very commercialized and seemed to be desperate for ideas. Everything he has to say is worth hearing, as he is a brilliant man with even better ideas.
