    I have a feeling most people are going to write this song off, strictly because its Marilyn Manson. It’s just like a new Slipknot song. “Oh it’s those guys? Well this will suck.”

    I’m not a Manson fan boy. I’ve always found his music really hit or miss. I’m feeling this song though.

    I’m digging the vibe. Almost a Nick Cave sort of feel. As usual, his vocals are the weakest part, but they still kind of work with this tune.

    If the whole album is like this, I’ll buy it.

    I rather enjoy this song. It’s in his dark fashion, but not ragey or scream covered. Almost like the last Gary Numan album with a bit of country twang maybe.

      I kind of like it, but I’m admittedly so biased against Manson. That said I’ll definitely listen to it more and give it an honest try.

      But I just had to note, god damn that Numan album is incredible.
