Overview

The High End of Low is Marilyn Manson's anticipated reunion with longtime friend and foil Twiggy Ramirez, with a new lineup including Ramirez (for the first time in close to a decade), plus keyboardist Chris Vrenna and drummer Ginger Fish. Produced by Manson, Vrenna,and Twiggy, The High End of Low was recorded in his Hollywood Hills studio and also features the track, "I Want to Kill You Like They Do In The Movies." The deluxe edition contains six bonus tracks.
Since emerging from South Florida (in the early 1990s), Marilyn Manson has continued to upend the mainstream with each new release. The tumultuous relationship Manson has cultivated with the public worldwide has resulted in multi-million records sales, sold-out tours, protests, legal battles, hate, adoration, award-winning distilled spirits (Mansinthe) and most importantly, a long list of some of the most enduring and genre-defying music in the rock era ("Lunchbox," "Sweet Dreams," "The Beautiful People," "Tourniquet," "The Dope Show," "This Is The New Shit," "Mobscene," "Heart-Shaped Glasses,"etc.).

After 2007's mixedly reviewed "Eat Me, Drink Me"; Marilyn Manson is back in a return to form. This album's superiority to the last has a lot to do with the return of long time bandmate Twiggy who had split ways with Manson back in 2002, and the addition of former Nine Inch Nails member/Tweaker frontman Chris Vrenna. The result is, for the most part, awesome. The album starts things off with "Devour" which instrumentally has that modern nod to post-punk kind of sound a lot of bands have been doing lately i.e. She Wants Revenge, White Lies, etc; and then kicks things off into an upbeat climax. The rest of the album picks up in momentum and/or quality from there, with the occasional mediocre departure infrequently scattered about. But even the "meh" moments are worth enduring because a lot of, if not all the songs, have some kind of instrumental incentive whether it be the bluesy lead guitar solos in the second half of "Unkillable Monster" or Chris Vrenna's awesome soundscapes in "15." This isn't the heaviest album he's done, but it definitely has its moments (i.e. the squealing noisy leads emerging behind the stomping rhythm assaults in "Pretty As a Swastika"), and the chiller songs such as "Four Rusted Horses," "Running to the Edge of the World," and "Unkillable Monster" etc; are reminiscent of the mellower songs on Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Holywood. Anyone skeptical of whether or not Manson would ever put out another good album can be assured that buying this album will be a musical investment well spent!
