    I remember my introduction to the era really well. I was still in school, had a friend hanging out at my house. I was playing some kinda Korean free to play Mario Kart knock-off on my computer and was browsing the web between games. I noticed a new song finally came out, or leaked, or something from Manson - Heart Shaped Glasses. I was pretty blown away, it was so unlike anything the band had ever put out before. It was different, but I liked it. My friend was more into Tool and System of a Down but he thought it was interesting. I think he didn't like it and was more into Manson's heavier stuff but still agreed that it was really interesting.

    I still like the album, although I've found I like fewer tracks upon listening to it in full as the years go on. The title track "EAT ME DRINK ME" is still one of my favorite Manson tracks to this day though. It's so textured and haunting and I think, like the album itself, is so much unlike anything else from the Manson library. Sometimes I still wonder what another Manson-Skold exclusive collab would be like. I wonder what happened between them to cause Manson to hate him so much?

Out of the last four records is the one I like the least, and I firmly believe it started his artistic decline. I'm giving it a listen right now though, it's been years since the last time.
    Lemme know what you think after another listen...
    Question. Are you a musician?

    It gives me a better idea of the "fashion" in which he's listening to music..
    What function music serves for him

    Not a musician, no. So I don't listen to music dissecting things and talking non-sense about the quality of the production and stuff like that. That said I like 'Eat Me, Drink Me' much more than I did ten years ago, really, but I can't stand lame, self-parody titles like 'They Said That Hell's Not Hot' and 'You and Me and the Devil Makes 3'. The former especially, it's a great piece of music which Manson built over a nice vocal melody, but really couldn't he think better words to sing?

    There are plenty of self-parody titles, and lyrics, in the last four albums, something the young Manson would have never put on record. Starting with EMDM it's like he became a cheap comicbook version of himself, incorporating in his music all of those clichés that people who didn't know anything about Marilyn Manson would have said of him: satanist, goth, vampire, etc.

    Now, you can say that he did it intentionally, he decided to become a living cliché on purpose, but I'd rather say he completely lost the plot and let his personal troubles and substance abuse problems taking over his career. The young Marilyn Manson was in full control, had a vision and concepts, the present Marilyn Manson is just a character without anything specific to say other than talking about himself using a stereotyped lexicon. That's essentially why I think that 'Eat Me, Drink Me' marked the beginning of the second part of his career, which in my own opinion is the declining phase.

    Here's a really nice interview from 2007 where Manson talks about some aspects of the album


    And yes, this was right at the end of his good interviews, so it's actually worth watching.

    In that interview, he says he wanted to make a album that was so uninterested in what the record company wanted, and didn't care about how it would be received commercially. That says lot about the people who hate this album.

    I was in the position where I don't want to ever make music again because I'm disgusted with the music industry... Unless I want to make what I want to make.

    Being who I am is what I need to be... or there's no reason to be alive.
    Some really great takes from this interview.
