Marilyn Manson - Third Day of a Seven Day Binge

by paul_guyet Rating:2 Release Date:2014-10-28

It appears as though Marilyn Manson will soon make good on his threat to put out a new studio album, as exemplified by the release, yesterday, of the brand new track, 'Third Day of a Seven Day Binge'", which you can listen to and download here. If you want to. It's not very good.

Ah. Now, there's a phrase that Marilyn Manson has probably had to deal with a lot over the past decade or so: "Not very good". This is because his music over the past eight years or so has been... not very good. A tradition he seems to be proudly carrying forward with his new material.

The new single consists of the title being repeated (squawked, mumbled, screamed, etc) several times, some worn out word-play, if you can even call it that ("I can't decide if you wear me our/ or wear me well"), and a lot of slurry humming/moaning/pooping (?) noises, all set to yet another uninspired, tired and easily forgotten blur of sound, probably perpetrated by Twiggy 'I'm Almost 50 Years Old and People Still Call Me Twiggy' Ramirez. Manson's vocals are muzzy and grumpy, sounding like someone just shook him awake and demanded that he 'sing', which would also explain the repetition.

I used to be a Manson fan. Portrait of an American FamilyAntichrist Superstar and The Golden Age of Grotesque are all fantastic albums, the first two for their raw, reeking viscera, and the latter for its twisted style and devilishly fun lyricism, but, being a Manson fan over the past eight years or so has been like being in an abusive relationship, and every time he announces a new album that will redefine/reinvent/reinvigorate MUSIC ITSELF, I say the exact same thing: "Maybe things will go back to the way they were... Maybe things will get better."

Will I ever learn?

PS: On top of everything else, the new Manson logo (as seen above) looks a heck of a lot like the early 90s Nine Inch Nails logo used on the 'Sin' single. Just saying.
