We all know Manson is sweet, but this album will only work for you if you love screaming!!!
on 15 August 2008
Like you I love Marilyn Manson, and contrary to the name of my review, I understand and even like the fact that his music, certainly his vocals, does involve some gutteral screaming.
He's a shock-rock star, so I don't expect him to be all gentle and pretty and lovey-dovey. But I could barely listen to my favourite songs such as 'Sweet Dreams' without hearing the bloody, pulsing, throbbing tidal wave of demented fans roaring "MANSON-MANSON-MANSON!!!" or "DRRRUUGGGS!" in the background. I like to listen to Marilyn Manson when hes actually singing...here, all the songs are overloaded with screaming, bellowing fans who can't control themselves, and of course the very pleasent opening words to songs like "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)", which promoted all the major killer, life-ruining drugs in our world as well as the rather nauseating notion of sucking Mansons...*cough* penis.
Buy it if your a hardcore Manson fan who loves his live concerts. Don't buy it if you want to hear his songs purring rhythmically to the spine-tingling heat of cold, shocking electric guitar.
