Marilyn Manson: Smells Like Children

Sound — 6
I thought I'd snatch this album to reveiw before anyone else did. Where to start with this album? Well it was my first Manson album, I didn't like it that much, the sound almost sounded like it had been recorded in a garage. Some songs I enjoy like "Rock'n'roll Nigger" and ofcourse "Sweet Dreams" but seriously some songs like "f-- frankie" I wouldn't call music.

Lyrics — 6
It's the Manson lyrics that get me, therefore the songs with no lyrics I press "skip" most of the time. Manson has skill, he proves that in his other albums, but not really in this one. I find some song lyrics meaningless.

Overall Impression — 6
I'm sorry I can't put anything more than that. I'm not putting "bad" as a rating because hearing marilyn mansons other albums how can I? Sweet dreams what a song, shame the other songs can not be described as good I could descibe sweet dreams. If this album was stolen I would probably not replace it after all I have my other Manson albums to listen to which are let me tell you alot better.
