Metal Hammer (UK) - - Albums -

Eat Me, Drink Me

INTERSCOPE – 2007

The goth-pop al­bum. When Man­son’s mar­riage to bur­lesque icon Dita Von

Teese im­ploded, he went full re­bound. The video for lead sin­gle Heart-Shaped glasses was shot like a sex tape of him­self and his new ac­tress girl­friend, rachel evan Wood.

The High End Of Low

INTERSCOPE – 2009

Doc­u­ment­ing the ups and downs of his re­la­tion­ships, the songs swerved from the vul­ner­a­ble to the vi­o­lent, with sur­pris­ingly straight­for­ward – if in­dul­gent – lyrics. Twiggy re­turned to the band, bring­ing the al­bum’s dis­tinc­tive low end.

Born Vil­lain

COOK­ING VINYL – 2012

ad­dress­ing the ques­tion of whether some­one’s born a vil­lain or made one, Man­son’s eighth record en­com­passed an im­pres­sive range of styles, from the stompy to the sub­dued, while mix­ing high lit­er­ary and film ref­er­ences to in­tox­i­cat­ing ef­fect.

The Pale Em­peror

HELL, ETC.– 2015

With the ti­tle nod­ding to David Bowie, Mar­i­lyn rein­vented him­self again with the help of com­poser Tyler Bates, cre­at­ing a col­lec­tion of slick, sexy, South­ern songs with broad ap­peal. as close to main­stream as the God Of Fuck swims.
