Details Release Date: Jun 05, 2007; Lead Performance: Marilyn Manson; Genre: Rock

Marilyn Manson's transformation from son-of-Satan scary to weird-smelling-geezer-on-the-bus creepy has been completed with the video for new single ''Heart-Shaped Glasses,'' where he can be seen pawing an undressed, bloody Evan Rachel Wood. And it is true that Eat Me, Drink Me lacks menace no matter how many times Manson uses the F-word (which, in ''Evidence,'' is a lot). Still, this collection — musically driven by guitarist Tim Skold — boasts a clutch of Goth-rock numbers that, if not evil per se, are still devilishly good.
