A quirky little EP for the seriously interested,
By A Customer
This review is from: Smells Like Children (Audio CD)
Smells Like Children is more of an EP than an album, despite the fact it has so many tracks. This is because many of these 'songs' are just in fact comic interludes or instrumentals. Many people have criticised Manson for this, but in fact I applaud it as totally original! There are a few good remixes here. Kiddie Grinder is a hard industrial version of Organ Grinder, which I rank alongside the original. Diary Of A Dope Fiend stands out for originality, but Everlasting C***sucker is nothing compared to Cake And Sodomy. If you like Manson, this CD is worth buying just for the covers of Sweet Dreams and I Put A Spell On You (of the Lost Highway ST) and for the sake of completeness. It points out the slightly more surreal side to Manson, and is a welcome break from the (quality) hard metal of later days...
