  1. Not since "Mechanical Animals" (1998) has he stared within so unblinkingly; the focus pays off in conflicted, nuanced singing that makes some of his past rage sound rote.
  2. Eat Me, Drink Me lacks menace... Still, [it] boasts a clutch of Goth-rock numbers that, if not evil per se, are still devilishly good.
  3. This album sees him rising from the hordes of spider-black hoodies, becoming a musical force beyond the Download ticket-holders.

    [It] scales back the Weimar guignol of 2003's The Golden Age of Grotesque in favor of classic industrial and glam. [Jul 2007, p.98]
  5. 60
    Musically, affairs lack Manson's customary anthemic poise, but tracks like "Heart-Shaped Glasses" draw on Berlin-era Bowie and Iggy's The Idiot with brooding panache. [Jul 2007, p.107]
  6. Despite some spooky background noises, the music leans toward a glam-gone-grim style, reverting to a sound that predates Marilyn Manson’s past industrial-rock stomps.
  7. The album is a stunningly lackluster, impersonal anti-work.

    Another amazing record. Similar to Mechanical Animals in sound, but very different in focus and intensity. Fans will love it, fans of old Another amazing record. Similar to Mechanical Animals in sound, but very different in focus and intensity. Fans will love it, fans of old rock will find it easier to get into then most of his stuff. Anyone who is knocking it just doesn't like Manson, ignore them. Expand

    I think Manson is a true artist. This album is a proof of his staying true to his feelings and state of mind. He's not making any I think Manson is a true artist. This album is a proof of his staying true to his feelings and state of mind. He's not making any compromise. He's telling his story, this time with other words and notes and that's what being creative means. He's different (but why should he be the same?), he's alive, more alive than so many. Art is about movement and change. I really appreciate this movement and change in the alternation of rough and soft sound and lyrics. They may not be perfect from a specialist point of view (I'm not one), but you can feel his artistic torments, he's giving his best. Chapeau! :) Expand

    What in god's name are you doing reviewing music you have no critical basis in, Evan B? Did you even listen to the album. Sure, this is What in god's name are you doing reviewing music you have no critical basis in, Evan B? Did you even listen to the album. Sure, this is derivative, not nearly as good as his other stuff, but Marilyn Manson is a much better role-model than most of our politicians. His glam/goth shtick is just a costume, the man's very intelligent (and capable of a better album). Do a little research before slapping a 0 on something that you think might possibly be offensive because it looks similar to something you thought hinted at bad morals. Expand
