This is the latest album of Manson's work thus far and the 2nd album released after he has parted ways with Jeordie White a.k.a Twiggy Ramirez. At this album, John 5 is no longer in the band as well. Honesly, this album in a way was out of my expectations. I have this view that Manson's music has a heavy touch of industrial genre but this album has kind of gotten mellow.

There are some good songs like Putting Holes in Happiness, Evidence and Heart-Shaped Glasses but in a way, It doesnt seem much like Manson's best work. Songs in there are mostly pretty low on drums and clashes. Manson is known for heavy style of music but in this album, I don't really see it that way. But of course, It's Manson, So for those fans out there, You can go ahead and grab this album

This album I got it off eBay and all I can say about this album is AWESOME! In a way, I'm addicted to this album. This album unlike the above one has more similarity to Manson's work. This is WAY heavier than the above album.

It's pretty similar to Mechanical Animal. Both heavy with industrial genre. The AntiChrist Superstar is Manson's Album but heck, to me, This is good. But yes, I still like AntiChrist Superstar. (note that I am not an antichrist)

Great songs to look forward to in this album is basically This is the new Sh*t, mOBSCENE, (s)AINT and Slutgarden. These songs are great to hear. Heavy though but well, What is Manson if it ain't heavy right?

Manson works together with John 5 and Tim Skold. Hence, that explains why this album has a different touch. Skold makes the editting or the music much at a very different pace. In a way, he's like Twiggy, these guys are the main foundation in Manson's music. Kudos to MANSON!!!

As for the Eat me CD, I have to agree that Manson has taken down a little mellow but what it lacks it make up with great guitar solo from skold. I must say that this CD is the most melodic cd today.

as for Grotesque, some said that manson has lost it's identity, because it follows heavily the trend of KMFDM, but i say hell not...KMFDM couldn't simply come up with Manson's lyrics. He is probably the best lyricist today...

and for the record Doll-Dagga Buzz-Buzz Ziggety-Zag is a blend of 1920s swing with industrial metal. only Manson could pull that off.

if you ask me, twiggy leaving the band isn't a bad thing because the collaboration of Manson and Skold is pretty good.
