唱片:Marilyn Manson - 《Eat Me, Drink Me》(2007)
廠牌:Interscope

曾經與媒體攜手創造工業惡魔形象的Marilyn Manson,在最新的專輯可要出賣一直祟拜他的新歌德少年們了;換個說法即是一直痛恨Manson的搖滾樂迷,今次終於可以平心靜氣地欣賞他音樂的另一面。闊別四年,捨去憤怒的面罩,化上淡淡的粉底,沬上淺淺的眼影;由上張依然重型的《The Golden Age of Grotesque》,蛻變成這張內省沉鬱的《Eat Me, Drink Me》。有個疑問,究竟是否每個搖滾明星都會逐著年紀漸長,而變得收歛呢?

據他自己所言,今次專輯名字《Eat Me, Drink Me》來自一單駭人聽聞的殺人案, "The album's title [Eat Me, Drink Me] was also inspired by that story several years back of the German man who put out an ad that he wanted to be eaten, and the man who ate him. Although I can't relate to the relationship those two had, I found the story very compelling in a romantic way. I think a lot of people wouldn’t look at it as romantic, but it was to them in some sick way, and it is to me in some sick way, too"

首曲〈If I Was Your Vampire〉,是當他妻子Dita Von Teese向他提出離婚後的幾個小時內即席填詞,歌詞寫道 "Digging your smile apart, with my spade-tounge. The hole is where the heart is. We built this tomb together, and I won’t fill it alone. Beyond the pale, everything is black, no turning back." 切膚之痛,今趟Manson除了出眾的情愛歌詞,也逐放棄了嘶叫,歌詞唱清楚了,聲線也圓潤得多。(比較上)本以為與Tim Skold的合作會令Manson的搖滾味退減不少,可像〈Just a Car Crash Away〉尾段的結他獨奏,又叫人眼前一亮;幾近多年再沒有聽過如斯流麗的獨奏,也沒想過會出現在Manson的專輯裡面。當然,最觸目的固然是他為自己新女友女-Evan所寫的〈Heart-Shaped Glasses〉,話說當他看到Evan戴上心型眼鏡時,就回想起了大導演Kurbrick的名作《Lolita》,固此為她寫下這首曲目。

觀乎整張專輯,〈The Red Carpet Grave〉、〈Heart-Shaped Glasses〉及〈Evidence〉的新浪漫氣息都相當濃厚;這種曲風出現在他的專輯裡,感覺其實頗新鮮;但其實在二OO一年,他就曾經翻玩過Soft Cell的〈Tainted Love〉,並被收錄在《Not Another Teen Movie》的電影原聲唱片中。Manson的新浪漫基因其實一直存在,不過是在今次專輯才得以充份發揮而已。

都岩既。如果佢唱依首歌把聲肯再順少少,效果會好d。

我其實受不了這個唱片封面, 我受不了的不是Marilyn Manson, 而是牆壁上的血. 我在 HMV 試聽這張碟時, 一看到這個封面, 我打了個冷震.

係就係幾"無型"既。佢再收歛,都係要懶邪惡一下先心息。

冇左JOHN 5既佢真係有D聽唔慣。

但係真係冇諗過佢可以咁溫柔唱,

And say that 'I love you' so much you must kill me now.
I love you so much you must kill me now...

以前未鍾意過MM,唯獨係依張專輯。對我黎講,John5走左可能係好事。(或多或少因為我好驚人扮邪惡)

歌詞我鍾意〈Heart-Shaped Glasses〉個段,"Don't break my heart, and I won't break your heart shaped glasses. Little girl, little girl you should close your eyes, that blue is getting me high. Making me low."憂鬱到......
