Marilyn Manson - Heart Shaped GlassesMarilyn Manson - Heart Shaped Glasses

Marilyn Manson is once again back on the music scene, it seems like only yesterday everyone claimed Marilyn Manson had quit the music scene and now he’s back with a brand new album 'Eat Me, Drink Me' and the first single to be taken from the album is 'Heart-shaped Glasses'.

When I first heard 'Heart-Shaped Glasses' I was pretty disappointed with it because it seemed quite repetitive and quite toned down compared to classic Marilyn Manson songs. But I have since realised 'Heart-Shaped Glasses' is a grower and one of them songs that takes multiple listens before the greatness of it really sinks in. The instrumental work on the song is pretty melodic with standout drum rolls and top notch guitar work and Marilyn's vocals help make the song.

I have always been a fan of Marilyn Manson but have never been too impressed with his material since 2003's 'Golden Age Of Grotesque' album and the cheesy covers of 'Personal Jesus' and 'Tainted Love'. 'Heart-Shaped Glasses' doesn’t see Marilyn Manson back on form but does see them take a slightly different approach in music which seems to work really well for them. It will be good to see how good their new album 'Eat Me, Drink Me' is.
