Marilyn Manson - The High End Of Low

I just finished listening to the new Marilyn Manson release, The High End Of Low. This is your typical Manson fare. I don’t see this record blowing anyone away or earning him new fans. The best tracks on the record are the slower numbers, namely “Unkillable Monster” and “Running To The Edge Of The World.” A lot of people are praising this as a return to form. I view it as simply a man out of ideas. Darius has stated he’s writing a review on the record. I’m curious to read his opinion. The Washington Post review is right on the money, especially the last paragraph, which reads…

“Whip-smart intelligence and a staggering lack of self-awareness have always co-existed on Manson discs, and this one is no different. These days he has to labor much too hard to be a provocateur. He doesn’t seem to realize it, but he’s much more interesting, much more human, as a spurned lover than he is as a fusty culture war relic, rattling his chains.”

    Limp Bizkit is more relevant than MM in 2009. Get with it boys.

    This is an excellent album. It’s NOT a “return to form” and you overuse that word. It’s a good rock record. Your review is untrue.
