Marilyn Manson: The Pale Emperor

Album Review

Schlock horror: the goth-metal kingpin returns with better songs but no real surprises.

The glory days of Marilyn Manson – namely the triumvirate of Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals and Holy Wood – are up there with heavy rock’s all-time high points. Post-Holy Wood, the former poster boy for controversy to the moral majority lost his magic, the music suffered, and he’s struggled to regain respect since.
