  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. Among Manson's most compelling records.
  3. 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.
  4. There's nothing quite as immediate or fantastic as 'Disposable Teens' here, but the album on the whole is a triumph.
  5. This album sees him rising from the hordes of spider-black hoodies, becoming a musical force beyond the Download ticket-holders.
  6. Eat Me, Drink Me is a bona fide creative rebirth.
  7. There aren't really any Beautiful People-type moments, only a collection of songs that work surprisingly well as a kind of musical diary for a performer who has finally acknowledged that he's not the threatening icon he once was.
  8. Like his best work, Eat Me, Drink Me is as fun as it is cartoonishly scary.

    Manson's music still evokes decay, but he sounds more fertile than ever. [Jul 2007, p.116]

    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! :) Full Review »

    It's not as accessible on first listen as his past albums have been, but I think that's the point. This is definitely an album you It's not as accessible on first listen as his past albums have been, but I think that's the point. This is definitely an album you have to listen to a few times to have it fully sink in and then it's easier to appreciate it for what it is. It's art, not disposable pop music. Full Review »

    Definitely a good album, as long as you are not expecting an industrial/metal album. I felt the last album (Golden Age...) tried a few new Definitely a good album, as long as you are not expecting an industrial/metal album. I felt the last album (Golden Age...) tried a few new things but mostly tried to recreate the Antichrist Superstar sound, to mixed results. This album goes off in another direction and succeeds because of it. Definitely worth a listen. Standout tracks are: If I was Your Vampire, Evidence, Mutilation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery, You and Me and The Devil Make Three. Full Review »
