I totally didn’t realize that the new Marilyn Manson disc had been released until i saw it sitting next to some Aimee Mann albums while at Best Buy yesterday. Poor Marilyn has always outdid his inventive musical range with his less than engaging stylistics, and it seems to have finally taken its ultimate toll on his career. I actually bought his last cd, Mechanical Animals, and it was a very nice David Bowie album. After all, Manson really is just a Bowie for our decade, only lacking the true chameleon abilities both visually and stylistically that Bowie possessed. Or maybe i’m making an unfair comparison. The point is, the poor boy didn’t even manage to drum up enough hype inbetween releases by U2 and Limp Bizkit. And that’s just sad.
