I am still waiting for any physical representations of "Heaven Upside Down" on CD or LP. I have spent enough time with the digital files already to make up my mind though. The new album from Mr. Manson is probably the weakest of his latest 5 albums. They can be rated something like this:
- The High End of Low 
- Born Villain 
- Eat Me, Drink Me 
- The Pale Emperor 
- Heaven Upside Down 
"SAY, SAY, SAY10"
It's like he has run out of melodies, new chants (apart from the usual "God is a cunt and Satan is hanging out with me, snorting cocaine and banging hoes.") It's not like I wouldn't like to join the party... it just doesn't really work very well on this album. The new drum beats or rhythms aren't on top either.
"So what's a nice place like this
Doing 'round people like us?""
It's not bad though. There's some nice stun guitar on it. Also obviously, some of the semi-reused, half-baked Manson chants are somewhat effective, and who doesn't like hoes and cocaine and pissing in God's face?!
"Would you kill, kill, kill for me?
I love you enough to ask you again
Would you kill, kill, kill for me?"
I like that one, "KILL4ME". Finally something that works. A true Manson song. Anyway, this album is not a highlight in Manson history, but I guess that is okay. He has been consistent on albums for many years now. The next one will be better, I hope. See you next time or at the next Danish gig - on The North Pole.
