Mr Manson and The Spooky Kids!

AdvantagesThought provoking, interesting and progressive style

DisadvantagesTo many people judge the band before listening to them

"...over the last thew years Marilyn Manson has grown in popularity, appearing on numerous TV shows and releasing many truly thought provoking albums it is no wonder he is doing so well for himself. Whether he is appealing to the younger "rebels" with his new music or appealing to the older generation with his David Bowie sounding music. Manson has made a name for himself and is doing awfully well. Marilyn Manson AKA Brain Warner was a Music Journalist ..." Read review

Marilyn Manson. Make up your own mind.

AdvantagesInteresting lyrics, opinions, I like the music. Intelligent guy.

Disadvantages------- a long review ------- sorry ------

"...ranting on about how great Marilyn Manson is and how much I Enjoy his music and how ignorant people can be (and can't they just, I can't even begin to describe how ignorant. Particularly many years ago while at school rock music and Marilyn Manson were 'weird' and those who did not conform to the normal 'nice happy pop music and dress top to toe in Adidas or whatever the trendy brand of the week was' were 'freaks' and got much hassle over nothing....(yeah ..."

From a Goth point of view.

AdvantagesInsta-Goth

DisadvantagesRequires Evolution

"...going to immediately complain about Marilyn Manson ruining my subculture before going to smoke a clove cigarette in a ridiculously frilly black shirt. Marilyn Manson is both an individual and a band. Originally called "Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids," the band emerged from the Florida underground scene in the early nineties thanks to collaborating with Trent Reznor on their first album "Portrait of an American Family." Marilyn Manson is ..." Read review

Marilyn Manson - good and bad times

Advantagesgood mesages

Disadvantagesmisunderstood to easily

"This mega star was never failed to entertain. Through his life and career he has stunned the rock scene with his image based on a French theatrical figure - Antonin Artaud - that in his own time revelled in controversy. Manson unfortunately is far too often taken literally and people rarely decode the messages he sends out, hence many taking the wrong end of the stick. What any listener needs to do is look past the make-up and forethoughts and listen ..." Read review

The Shame of Heavy Metal

AdvantagesNo one

DisadvantagesHe doesn't know to sing

"I'm sorry with all the fans of Marylin Manson, but according to me he's just a cheat. I always feel like yawning any time his songs pass on radio and he's just boring; some hits such as "The Beautiful People" were not bad, but if you remove all the tons of colours on his face, there is nothing more left; he always tries to provoce the media with silliy declrations or showing off in his concerts having sex with lambs or dressing like a fetish. There ..." Read review

The golden age of grotesque

AdvantagesAmazing from start to finish

DisadvantagesA little disturbing

"...to be the best album Marilyn Manson has so far done. The tracks keep you rocking and singing or should I say shouting along from start to finish. Although I have only recently purchased this I had not heard one of the bonus tracks within the cd. I had borrowed the golden age of grotesque from a friend which from listening to it time and time again I decided to go out a buy it myself. When I purchased the album it included 2 bonus tracks which are ..." Read review

My view on marilyn manson - NOT IN TEXT

AdvantagesVery good and stress relieving

Disadvantagesthere isnt any (so ner)

"This album to me is very good. I like it because it has tracks from all of Mansons past CDs. For all of you who would like to know Hugo is my friend and he wanted me to do this for some reason or another. The thing that i like most about the music manson does is that its compleately different to all of the R n B that everyone in my class listens too, and it makes me feel happy. I also like the music because it has lots of guitar and good lyrics. ..." Read review
