  1. Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside Down

    I’ll have to check mine out.
  2. Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside Down

    Just picked my copy up the P.O. after they said it was undeliverable. Conspiracy against Manson? You decide. Mine came in a proper mailer that looks to be in good shape. Jury is still out on this album. Hopefully a more intimate listen will reveal some good things. i’ve been listening to the triptych a lot lately. My fav MM album is Mechanical Animals, but man have I been sleeping on Holywood. I tried it a few times in the past and it never clicked, but for whatever reason I have been really liking it. Such great guitar writing and playing from John 5. It’s now my 2nd favorite MM album.
  3. Yes, I pre-ordered the X1X Project Scorpio edition (a stand and “Project Scorpio” lettering(who cares?)). It is pricey. Not really sure if it will be hard to get. I’m looking forward to the (hopefully) improved performance and interested to see how the HDR will look on some games. My X1 is from just after launch, so i’ll Be happy with the extra storage, quiet fan, and no external power brick.
  4. Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside Down

    Received a shipping confirmation on Wednesday last week and it should be here tomorrow. It usually doesn’t take this long for delivery from TN to VA, but media mail, so, whatever.
  5. Wasn’t MBV around $45 from most stores in the US when it was first made available? The price didn’t really drop until the hype had died down and product started sitting on shelves. I was thinking earlier today that if I hadn’t already told my local to order these for me I would buy from the MBV store now. $64 shipped seems like a lot, but if I saw all analog, 180gm, official copies of two of the greatest albums of all time sitting on the shelf in a store for $32 each i’d buy them without thinking twice.
  6. Grabbed the red from the INXS store. Hopefully this sounds awesome, but I love the details so far, so I’m optimistic.
  7. Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside Down

    This album isn’t doing much for me. While starting off strong, Pale Emperor dried up pretty quickly for me and this is starting from the same place. I’m just not inspired by the Manson/Bates collaboration. It sounds formulaic and manufactured to sound like a MM record. That and the heavy, obvious blues version of MM really doesn’t appeal to me. It’s not bad, but it’s not good, either. Just fair. Im giving the record a few more listens, but it doesn’t look good...
  8. I think this album is better than Battle Born and Day And Age.
  9. Same. It was in a shipping label bag on the mailer.
  10. That wasn't the only thing. I don't agree with NPR's political leanings, which is fine, because I can respectfully disagree with different opinions. But I found the mentioning of Burzum completely unnecessary, and the accusation of cultural appropriation and the linked article ridiculous. It just ended up being a bit too much for me in a music article/review. i might as well start loving etchings though. Seeing as the Queens album, Foo Fighters, and now this record is sporting an etching. In this case, if you can't beat 'em...
  11. That Green/Silver looks terrible to me. What's worse though is that awful SJW review/article. I'm not surprised. It is NPR. i really hope this album is great. I'm sure it will take a few listens to sink in. I can't wait.
  12. I listened to AOTS this morning to double check my opinion, and I have to say, I can't believe that a Pinback fan would rate this album poorly. I've come to the conclusion that anyone that doesn't like it, must have a defective copy. The album is great.
  13. Marilyn Manson - Heaven Upside Down

    Thanks for the heads up. Bought a red.
  14. Yeah, a lot of people share your opinion. Me and my friends dont know how or why. On the flip side, I love AOTS (not my favorite), which most people think is their worst.
