Eat Me, Drink Me - Fairly Good, Based on 2 Critics

Entertainment Weekly - 72

Marilyn Manson’s transformation from son-of-Satan scary to weird-smelling-geezer-on-the-bus creepy has been completed with the video for new single ”Heart-Shaped Glasses,” where he can be seen pawing an undressed, bloody Evan Rachel Wood. And it is true that Eat Me, Drink Me lacks menace no matter how many times Manson uses the F-word (which, in ”Evidence,” is a lot). Still, this collection — musically driven by guitarist Tim Skold — boasts a clutch of Goth-rock numbers that, if not evil per se, are still devilishly good.Download This: Hear ”Putting Holes in Happiness” .

The Guardian - 60
Based on rating 3/5

The no longer Antichrist Superstar has had a beast of a year: a divorce petition from Dita Von Teese and the appalling career blow of not being blamed for the Virginia Tech shootings.

Any substance has to be sifted through metaphors aimed at pacifying the regular fanbase of people with purple hair.
