Marilyn Manson - The High End Of Low Review

Like the album title suggests, this is definitely the high end of low for shock rocker Marilyn Manson. You have more than just okay tracks and mid-songs. The few great songs here really help save this album because they feel very mason-like and help inject some life into it. A lot of the songs aren't necessarily bad; overall, they're just okay. They could have been better if they worked on them more to add some more interesting elements to them or make the songs pop more. Another glaring issue is that some of the songs have a long run time, which literally drags down the enjoyment of this album. Some songs could have been better if they were simply 30 seconds shorter. Also, the production on this album feels like mid-2000s garage rock, but with a veil of gothic aesthetics dripping over it. I'm really mixed about the production mixing and layering. At times, everything sounds good and interesting, but at other times it can be a bit too distorted and come off as cheezy. I think most artists, at some point in their careers, make an album like this. Not necessarily horrible, but a bit far from their best material. The high end of the low. 

RATING: 7/10
