We gave it an C+

Manson’s tranny-android-from-Pluto routine already felt corny when he dropped his first album in 1994, but that hasn’t stopped him from selling boatloads of CDs since then. Not surprisingly, High End finds him still prattling on about swastikas, hell, and Armageddon, oblivious to how silly it all sounds. Musically, the new tunes mostly evoke warmed-over Nine Inch Nails crossed with mediocre ’70s metal, and occasionally, the results can be fairly satisfying. But unless you’re a very impressionable 15-year-old, Manson’s safe as milk doom metal is unlikely to leave even a superficial cut. C+
