Shooter Jennings: “Marilyn Manson’s miraculous poetic ability doesn’t grow cold, like a lot of people’s songwriting”

by GuitarDomain

Marilyn Manson’s new album, We Are Chaos, is a record steeped in the anxiety, tension and degeneracy of our present moment. It’s Manson, so it’s provocative and louche, the alien hustle of electronic pop and new wave periodically upended by the danger of electric guitar and industrial steel.

There are acoustic guitars, too. Big songs and big ideas. Written and produced with Shooter Jennings, it sees Manson resume the role of America’s enfant terrible and of that of the chronicler at a remove – what else affords him such an uncanny second second sight that allows him to find the pressure points and skewer American moral contradictions?
