With their eighth studio album, Born VillainMarilyn Manson return from the depths of their mids limbo with almost an hour of the type of evil industrial and glam-infused metal they made their name on in their earliest days. While the band's blazingly controversial public profile died down tremendously since their late-'90s heyday, legions of devoted fans followed them through the next Born Villain - Marilyn Manson - Born Villain bevy of changes. The departure of founding member Twiggy Ramirez coincided with Let Love Be Your Energy - Robbie Williams - Greatest Hits few of the band's weakest albums, and even his return to the fold on 's The High End of Low couldn't redeem a substandard record from what seemed like a flailing band past its prime.
Born Villain sheds some of the more introspective leanings of prior offerings and accentuates all the throbbing rhythms, metallic guitars, and bilious disgust that defined the band's best work. Lead single "No Reflection" screams "comeback," with Manson channeling a Sisters of Mercy vocal over the sinister pulse of the verses before huge choruses explode in darkly catchy bursts.
Moments like these are the aural equivalent of a knowing smirk from the band, acknowledging that even the princes of darkness might have a lighter side. All of these songs find Manson himself in typically depraved form, with lyrical content as sexually, morally, and socially devious as it's been since 's devilish Holy Wood In the Shadow of the Valley of Death.
Even while Born Villain is a return to form for the band, the album becomes tedious Panic On Payday - Various - Dont Adjust Your Set.Theres Nothing Wrong With Your Needle! right about the halfway mark. The songs are overly long and all rely on similar dynamics to propel their crunchy angst. Though sounding inspired and sonically rejuvenated in its best moments, as the album wears on one gets the sense of a band trying a little too hard to revisit its former glory.
Without remaking "The Beautiful People," there's still a feeling that they're reaching to remember how to make a Marilyn Manson record and put the purgatory of their past few efforts behind them. All told, Born Villain is as valiant and exciting an effort as the group has come up with in years. While not reaching the dizzying heights of Marilyn Manson 's early material, it suggests Born Villain - Marilyn Manson - Born Villain band getting its legs back after a long period out to sea, and could lead the way to even brighter future wickedness.
