Album of the Week: Marilyn Manson’s Eat Me, Drink Me

Despite the fact that Tim Sköld is on this album, Eat Me, Drink Me is one of my less favored Marilyn Manson records. Perhaps it is because Sköld handles bass and guitar, John 5 having made his exit by this point, but I found the album to be lacking musically. That is not to say it’s bad; it just falls short of its predecessors.

Still, it’s Marilyn Manson and has its moments, so I have made Eat Me, Drink Me my album of the week.
