New Marilyn Manson – “Heart Shaped Glasses”

Never know what to make of Marilyn. Though there are songs from his catalogue we like (“The Beautiful People” and his cover of Bowie’s “Golden Years” come to mind), his interviews, image, and colored contacts are more arresting. And we know he’s had a tough year, but this snarly, heartbroken Hot Fussed-up single is bona fide dreck. Vulnerability isn’t nearly as good a look on Marilyn as is a nice gender-bending bodysuit.
