Earlier this year Marilyn Manson put out one of my favorite albums to be released this year, The Pale Emperor. It amazed me that people’s comments regarding the album were to the effect of “their first good album since Anti-Christ Superstar”! Music if very subjective, but just because you tuned out, lost track, or have only come back to an artist or band because your job asks you to, do es equate someone’s best album since their biggest album. Artists are to blame for this as well, how many times to we have to read “this is Shout At The Devil mixed with Dr. Feelgood”? Or “Destroyer mixed with Creatures, mixed with Revenge”. The end result is usually nowhere near the comparisons, and for some, a huge letdown.
