UK special edition of the shock rocker's eagerly anticipated 2003 album includes two bonus tracks, 'Tainted Love' & 'Baboon Rape Party'. 17 tracks. Nothing/Interscope.
album, which was inspired by the seamy underside of Weimar Berlin, circa 1930. The album is constructed along the lines of Alice Cooper's 1975 gem, Welcome to My Nightmare, dipping in to the same cabaret of Cooper's "Some Folks." Unlike Cooper, however, this is no comic nightmare. "This isn't a show / This is my f*cking life / I'm not ashamed / You're entertained," Manson snarls in "Vodevil," making it abundantly clear that the singer was born in the wrong time and place and is more at home among the absinthe-drinking revelers in pre-Nazi Germany. The album possesses a dark, accessible beauty rather than the twisted industrial dissonance that pervades much of his earlier stuff. "mOBSCENE" is a thumping rocker that features a deranged cheerleading squad. "Ka-Boom Ka-Boom" is a rousing stomper that Manson penned in response to an exec's complaint that the new songs didn't rock. Its simple yet seditious chorus decries, "I like a big car, 'cause I'm a big star / I'll make a big rock & roll hit." Since 1998's Mechanical Animals, Manson's albums have become progressively more tuneful, and Grotesque continues the trend. --Jaan Uhelszki

Marilyn Manson is Satan. Give me a break. Martha Stewart is Satan. I have dealt with people that beleive that if you do not go to church and worship God, you are EVIL! Manson exploits this to get your attention and b***h slap you with REALITY. We live in a corporate back stabbing world (Who all attend church). We all have a dark side. But I do not use it at work or play. Have a bad day of work and listen to "use your fist and not your mouth" on the way home. You will have vented all anger, and the day can go on without bringing your attitude problem home. Come to think of it...I listen to MM at home as well. Must mean I'm evil...
Excellent lyricist, dynamic voice, a band that continues to grow more powerfull, and contrary to what else I've read, this is NOT metal. This is INDUSTRIAL. Although, I am not a big fan of labels. Metalheads don't like GAOG. Oh Well... Welcome to the NEW S**T. For that matter, metal hasn't changed in 40 years. The only good modern metal is now considered alternative.
That's my opinion. If I got anyone upset...GET OVER IT.
Have A Wonderful Day!
The way he has incorporated his various styles into this new style is very impressive. The subtle hints of "Mechanical Animals" and his other projects tie everything together into his new persona and musical style.
This one's a Dandy -- Marylin Manson is Reborn.
Overall, this is still a viable effort for Marilyn Manson, but the message isn't nearly as strong as it has been in the past. With the first three albums, you could feel a certain world growing within the music and words. This album fails to stand on its own. For me, it was generally disappointing, but still a Manson record, all the same.
Anyway, back to the album, I haven't actually listened to all of it yet, but I've heard some of the songs on MTV (which sucks, but I watch it anyway), and they are totally awesome. They're almost as heavy as the stuff on Holywood, but really neat sounding and catchy like on Mechanical Animals. Tim Skold left his old band ABCDE or whatever that nobody listens to to join manson and he makes the songs really cool sounding. I heard Manson sings a lot about kinky stuff on the new album and how everybody should hate him and how it's stupid that people hate him, which is cool, because he's an individual and no one is brave enough anymore to sing about really controversiable stuff.Read more ›

mOBSCENE was better when it was called "Be Aggressive" and sung by Mike Patton.

I read so many reviews saying this album rocks... but in my opinion it lost so much. It doesn't have that punk rock sound that I loved. Read morePublished on June 30 2004 by Nadir Durrani
