It's been nearly two decades since Marilyn Manson was the transgressive cultural figure he built his brand on. The 51-year-old rocker hasn't been shocking since MTV ruled the airwaves, and his stubborn reluctance to accept his waning position as America's metallic scapegoat led to some clunkers in the early 2010s. However, on his 11th album We Are Chaos, Manson sounds liberated from the notion that his music must offend or challenge his listener to be worthwhile. On the contrary, it sees Manson spending more time looking inward, reflecting on his own identity, and even engaging in self-criticism.

Initially billed as his country album once outlaw icon Shooter Jennings was brought on to co-write and co-produce the 10-song affair (Manson had been dabbling with roots music since 2015's blues-leaning The Pale Emperor and also dropped a terrific cover of the Johnny Cash staple "God's Gonna Cut You Down" in 2019), in execution, We Are Chaos is only country in the sense that there are a few twangy lead guitar licks and a fiddle in the credits. Musically, the record is a hodge-podge of Manson's last decade of exploring slower, more musically rich, and less industrialized sounds. Most of the songs are power ballads that are melodic by his standards, and the ones that do kick up the dirt ("Red Black and Blue", "Perfume") are more hard rock than metal.

Casual Manson listeners looking for the grit of his earlier work might be better off revisiting the classics, but loyal fans will be intrigued by his, dare I say wise, lyrical pennings. On "Keep My Head Together," he offers the advice, "Don't try to change for someone else, you'll just end up changing yourself," an eyebrow-raising suggestion to hear from someone who's been in the business of shaping teenage identities for nearly 30 years. On "Solve Coagula" he revokes his public identity and exposes his own perceived flaws: "I'm not special, I'm just broken/ And I don't want to be fixed." And lastly, on closer "Broken Needle," the best and most passionately delivered power ballad on the record, Manson sings with pained regret: "I am a needle/ Dig in your grooves / Scratching you up then I'll put you away."

It's arguably the closest Manson has gotten to truly excavating the man behind the moniker, and it's moments like those that indicate that even without the anti-Christ pageantry, the Superstar himself still has compelling tales to tell. © Eli Enis/Qobuz

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.
