    I might be walking on very thin ice here but never mind:
    what do you guys think of Marylin masnons Music?
    and is anyone going to buy the new album "The Golden Age of Grotesque "??

    I just ordered my copy from cdwow (the one with the DVD)

    One question as well:
    I don't buy many CDs over the net and never bought preorders, usually only buy DVDs. and DVDS sometimes ship early:
    so do CDs ship early as well, or do I really have to wait until may12?

    Cheers

    I think most cds seem to ship around the same time, indie shops tend to sell new albums a few days prior to the official release date.

    MM. Never listened to any of his stuff, always reminded me of Alice Cooper, so thats probably why I have never taken the time to listen. I assumed all show and not a lot of go.

    Marilyn Manson albums have usually disapointed me - there always seems to be a few cracking songs that really stand out but then the rest are pretty poor. When they get it right it can sound fantastic tho - Disposable teens, Dope show, Great big white world and Beautiful people spring to mind.

    My girl's kind of a fair-weather fan (see the tour but rarely buy an album) but she doesn't really have too much of his stuff for the same reason stated above - too much filler, not enough killer.

    He's very good live though, I always get dragged along whenever he tours (not really my kind of music) and he always manages to put on a good show. My girl's got a few contacts so she can usually get backstage at these things, so I've met Mr Manson a couple of times and he's a thoroughly nice chap. A real gent.

    Doesn't change the fact that I don't like his music though. :thumbsdow

    Yeah, tend to agree with above. I thought his Mechanical Animals CD was quite good, but the last one sucked. Ordered this for £8.99 from Play, so hope it's an improvement, but have doubts, even without hearing it! Hope to be pleasantly surprised.

    Anyone else got this yet? Just listening to it now. Has some great sub-woofer action, and sounds excellent. Only heard about half of it so far, but already I prefer it to Holy Wood.

    I like it the more I listen to it but it's not as good as Mechanical Animals or Holywood IMO (my 2 favourite Manson albums)

    There are some very good songs on GAOG - just no real classics IMO

    I love The Golden Age and haven't stopped listening to it since it came out, that and St Anger are the 2 cds that are constantly on for now.

    Also saw the interview with Ross on Friday and it was good to see a proper interview with Manson for a change, the only ones I've seen before are of him tearing the interviewers apart for asking retarded questions :) haha, good performance too

    so am I the only one who own his first 'Portrait of an American Family', bought it when it came out and I still love it. Twisted, macabre but bloody funny genius.

    Not overkeen on his earlier stuff. GAOG is a classic, and will go down as one of his best albums I think. It's certainly his best so far. Saw the appearence on JR. First time I've seen a proper interview with Manson. Thought the performance of "mObscene" was good, but shame it wasn't actually "live". Going to play the CD again now!! :D

    One small complaint about the CD - has anyone tried to read the lyrics? I have good eyesight, but that text is seriously small!

    I've been a Marilyn Manson fan since the first time I heard his cover of Sweet Dreams on his Smells Like Children album. Course on that album that was the ONLY song I liked. Still Mech Animals and Svperstar got me going to his live gigs. Enjoyed them no end (despite him leaving the stage early at Metallica's Big Day out). His latest album is good, still a little commercial, not as much as Mech animals but not as "real"as Svperstar.

    BTW, anyone else think be ripped mOBSCENE from Faith No More. Their Be Aggressive song (on the Angel Dust album) sounds very similar...

    in fact its a little too similar to be coincedence

    I doubt he could get away with it, copyrights and all, unless it was authorised. Must admit, I do like Marilyn's semi-naked backing singers more than Faith No More :cool:

    Be aggressive is a standard cheerleader cheer so mOBSCENE is just working on that. If anyone nicked it Faith No More did :p

    I think GAOG is probably the best album since Anti-Christ Superstar and seeing him live at the Download festival in Donington was one of the absolute highlights. :)

    the chorus on mobscene is nearly a carbon copy of be aggressive, whether they are cheerleader chants or not.
    it is a comeplete rip off. they could both use cheerleader type chants and sound different,but they dont, mobscene sounds uncannily like be aggressive

    So much so, when Marilyn was singing mobscene at Download, and I was singing (shouting???) along, I kept saying aggressive, then correcting myself. Weird 'cause I hadn't listened to Be Aggressive in years.

    I don't care if it does sound like something else. It's a bloody good song! You're bound to get similarities between songs, and occasionally, they are more obvious then others, but it doesn't necessarily mean one is ripping the other off. What about Jean Genie (Bowie) and Blockbuster (Sweet) in the 70's? Both classics in their own right, but share an identical riff. :cool:
