The Pale Emperor roars to life from the very beginning, shoving nasty blues-tinged funk in our faces.
On one hand, it's a little surprising for an opener because it shows a lot more restraint than I would expect from The God of But on the other, more pressing hand, I've always found that Manson's opening song sets the tone for what's to come. In this regard, "Killing Strangers" is the perfect opener for the world of bluesy pain we're in for.
Immediately following, Manson slams us with "Deep Six," a track I loved on first Harder & Harder - The Orb - Ill Be Black (CD) and have only grown to love. The feel is still in the blues mold, but it's a bit more vicious and up tempo. Manson has grabbed us for his bluesy ride and he's not letting go. Manson's fascination with Greek mythology and turns of phrase show up here, with his chanted lines of "Wanna know what Zeus said to Narcissus?
Typical turn of a phrase for our lyricist. Great song. Followed up by another fantastic song, the first single "Third Day of a Seven Day Binge," another song that carries the blues motif. Other great songs follow. I absolutely love "The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles" for the blues funk it carries. The mournful wailing in "Warship My Wreck. For me, the only weak track here is "Birds of Hell Awaiting," which for some reason just doesn't do it for me.
But, as a whole, the songs here feature Manson at his most restrained and powerful. Working with Tyler Bates, whose known for his work as a composer Guardians of the Galaxy, Harder & Harder - The Orb - Ill Be Black (CD), Slither,etc. I know at least some of Manson's diehard fans haven't cared for his last few albums. It's typical in a career that lasts as long as Manson's has; the artist must change, but the people who supported him in the beginning just want another Mechanical Animals.
I get that. But, I'll be honest, this album is probably my favorite of Manson's. The parts of Manson's last few albums that I really loved were when he started singing the blues. Some of The High End of Low is my favorite he's ever created. Manson knows how to sing the blues.
So, an album that is so strongly influenced by blues is perfect for me. And, The Pale Emperor has an energy I've found lacking in his last few albums. Is it the second coming of Mechanical Animals? No, probably not. But, then again, I don't know if I'd want that. I don't really care if people say I'm "not a true fan," let's be honest- his last 4 albums Harder & Harder - The Orb - Ill Be Black (CD) so we're just not the same. To me, they felt uninspired and I just couldn't get into them.
I liked a few songs here and there, but it was just I liked everything through Golden Age of Grotesque. I blew off this album because it was new and I figured I just like the old stuff And I'd keep it at that Boy am I glad I checked this album out. Like someone else in the reviews said: this is like the new Mechanical Animals of our era, only without the eclectic fast pace songs like New Model It's a throwback to the more mellow parts of Mechanical Animals, which to me are the best parts.
This album Is front-to-back excellence by a revived Marilyn Manson. The lyrics aren't "me, me, you, you" like some of his recent stuff. It's back to more clever dark themes like I grew to love in the first several albums. This might be my 3rd favorite album by Manson.
Maybe even 2nd, which is saying something because Holywood and AntiChrist Superstar hold a special place in my heart from growing up with them. The official ranking though: 1. Holywood 2. The main criteria being that if I It took just one listen for me to add this to my very short, personal list of perfect albums. The main criteria being that if I hear one song off the album, I have to stop and listen to the whole thing from start to finish. This album has a very raw, stripped down, very personal feel to it.
It has some elements that reach deep into the blues.
