|Running To The Edge Of The World|
|Remember when I took you up to the top of the hill? We had our knives drawn, they were as sharp as we were in love If God crossed us we'd take all...||See the rest of the song lyrics|
'High End' makes a deeper impression as a result of Manson’s reunion with longtime guitarist-bassist Twiggy Ramirez; together with producers Sean Beavan and Chris Vrenna, they sculpted a sound both harder-hitting and more finely detailed than on any previous Marilyn Manson record.
Rolling StoneThe best moments come in the ballads like the blues-tinged 'Four Rusted Horses.' In such songs Manson is almost endearing, just a big melancholy dude with face paint. It's a less glamourous job title than Anticrist Superstar, but these days it suits him better.
KatrinaS.Jul 6, 2009This album incorporates all of Manson's complex and diverse talents. In my opinion, this is the best album Manson has released in years.
RonnieSMay 31, 2009Critics once again miss the spot. This by far manson at his best. A well balanced album I think it is the best album since Mechanical Animals Critics once again miss the spot. This by far manson at his best. A well balanced album I think it is the best album since Mechanical Animals but in a way better. This album is a complete 180 from Eat Me Drink Me I don't know how anyone could compare the two.… Expand
JamalDJun 20, 2009OK, so in my opinion this album is definitely a grower. Bigtime. When I first heard the songs I wasn't sure what to make of them and it OK, so in my opinion this album is definitely a grower. Bigtime. When I first heard the songs I wasn't sure what to make of them and it seemed like manson was totally washed up and was just whining about his life. But after delving into the songs some more, it's really nothing like that. Sure it's introspective but it doesnt convey hopeless desperation like parts of the last album. Instead it feels more like an optimistic tone, about realizing one's weaknesses and emerging stronger through the experience. This is why I see alot of parallels between this and Antichrist Superstar. I was lucky to have been reading the long hard road out of hell around the time I got this album so it all kinda made sense that way. Anyway, the point is: manson has not lost the subtlety and meanings that made his songs so epic. The album is pretty self-centered, but I think you'll find alot of songs from previous albums are VERY much the same way even if they don't seem like it. (see Kinderfeld) If you just give it a chance you'll find much more meaning than meets the eye, just like with previous manson works. Also, there are some pretty interesting experimental sounds that are really freaky, twiggy coming back did seem to mix things up just enough.… Expand
JeffreyHMay 29, 2009The negative reviews are inevitable with an artist like Manson, with the image often taking the precedent over the artist
AliceCooper'sMumOct 18, 2009It's not their best (mechanical animals+holywood) or even worst (portrait of an american family+smells like children)- its simply middle It's not their best (mechanical animals+holywood) or even worst (portrait of an american family+smells like children)- its simply middle of the road quality, with the music press giving very mixed reviews. the best tracks are "Arma-goddamn-motherfuckin-geddon", "Leave a Scar", "Running To The Edge Of The World", and the deliberately OASIS-LIKE (!) - and probably best track - "Into the Fire". I dont even like Oasis! The rest of the album (compared to these tracks) feels like its simply all filler material, with some arguably boring production-the vocals could have sounded alot better in many areas, as an example. Better luck next time, Brian!… Expand
blackieblaxJun 3, 2009Better than previous album, but i feel like manson's music has reached its peak with MecAnimals and probably Holywook was the last good album.
JhonatanYMay 28, 2009Well, that's a really boring album, with mediocre copy of 70's hard rockers, one of the worst albums that I've listened in this year.
