A slow release schedule for January continues, as only one new album makes it onto today’s list. It is an extremely prominent album, though, so as with previous weeks, it’s not about quantity as it is about quality. Check it out!
Marilyn Manson, The Pale Emperor (Loma Vista)
Manson’s ninth album is being declared one of his most complete works to date. With all the bombast and virtuosity of his early career work, Manson has outdone himself in creating an album that rises above the mediocrity of most radio rock to sound truly unique. Improving vastly on the output of 2012’s Born Villain, The Pale Emperor is an album that will leave you impressed and with full understanding of Manson’s status as a rock legend.
