There's not a lot to say about Marilyn Manson that my previous reviews haven't covered, but this is his first album once he lost the spooky kids from the title, and is a great way to make an impression. The man himself will say he is trying to get a message across through his lyrics, which are political and a kick in the crotch to religous zealouts and presedential figures.

The lyrics haven't there effect as they did in say Antichrist but still poetic, with enough co operation with the music to make it sound good, Manson has a truly, memorable and unique voice which is genuinely great, and very appropriate to the type of music, they go well hand and hand with each other.
Overall Impression — 8
I thought the album wasn't his best but still very good its well worth a buy, the best song hands down is "Lunchbox" which is very energetic and in general a great song the album isn't perfect but nonetheless very enjoyable to listen to so I don't see a reason not to buy it so go out and get it!
