a gimmick to me is Slipknot, the White Stripes, the Polyphonic Spree, and i do think that there is quite a difference between a gimmick and originality.

Okay, Slipknot's gimmick is that they all wear stupid masks. Polyphonic Spree's gimmick is that there are like 20 people with similarly bovine expressions wearing choir robes.

The White Stripes' gimmick is that . . . uh, there're two of them? That they play drums and guitar? That they occasionally dress in period costume for videos? I mean, the only thing close to a gimmick I can see there is the whole brother/sister/husband/wife thing, and I think everyone's pretty much over that.

NIN, I'll grant TDS (or PHM, either are solid)

what's korn's and MM's siamese dream? follow the leader? antichrist superstar? please. I can barely listen to an MM or Korn song without vomitting. NIN I can still handle, but not all songs. a lot of Korn and Manson's songs are mindless rage at either the system or culture, and really, it's not even productive criticism, it's really just blind hatred. they don't try to understand they simply reject (while creating their own place within said culture).

Korn doesn't REALLY have a gimmick I suppose, aside from the fact that their music all sounds the same. I think that should qualify a band for gimmick status, because as a band, the gimmick can just be one sound that they sell over and over and over again

Nononono You cannot say that Antichrist was a bad album full of blind hatred. That album was genius. Not only did it have its own flavor and feel, one I am particularly fond of because well, I'm a goth...but the lyrics are great. One of my favourite MM songs is Tourniquet, that song is just gorgeous. And Man That You Fear? Oh god.


It just really a sexy album, if you ask me.

I mean I never really listened much to Antichrist, but moreso than Portrait

I guess Antichrist is more the Mellon Collie of the Manson catalogue

Well see, there's your problem. You haven't listened to it much...but just because you don't like it doesn't mean its not a good album.

Musically, its awesome. Lyrically, its even better. The music/lyrics fit together perfectly, and the content is consistent, but not boring or tiring.

Portrait is probably MM's best album, but I prefer Antichrist because that's just me. But Portrait is awesome...the intro is genius, it has so much power and its such a dynamic album, it impresses the pants off of me (insert joke here).

And as for goth...I was just joking around about that. But as for what you're saying, I don't agree. I understand that for the most part, most "goth" kids grow out of it, and yes it is just a phase...but there's a difference between those kids and people who genuinely enjoy the certain aspects of that "phase".

For instance, I would love to get dreads, pile on tons of makeup, get some bigass stompin' boots, put on my striped stockings, get some piercings and tattoos (a sleeve to be exact), clips and chains hanging everywhere...I mean really the works. But not only would my boyfriend probably freak out, but my work would be too...so I don't. I wear dress pants and petite heels, when I go out I wear other clothes I like and feel comfortable in.

I've always loved the way that fashion is, I always will. I've always loved bands like MM, NIN, etc...always will. Its not that I was one of those creepy little kids that eventually grew out of it, its just something I geniunely enjoy. I don't think I'd go so far as to call it gothic, either...since that term has been spoiled by those moron kids.

In other words, there's people who like it because its the cool thing to do, and then there's people who genuinely like it.

It can be any "trendy" thing. From cutters to bisexuals...there's always going to be some genuine people and then there's going to be the ones that follow the trend because its just the thing to do. But that shouldn't discredit the genuine "trendsetters".

well you bring up good points and maybe my view of it has simply been "spoiled by those moron kids"...

I can appreciate how well the music and the lyrics mesh, because in that respect they are very successful. Maybe it's only because I went through the phase briefly and grew out of it quickly, but I find stuff like anger at religion and government annoying, because it's cyclical without any actual solutions. or rather, whatever solutions they may suggest (and I don't pretend to know them) are never successful in the least - although that's a fault of many artistic movements so I can't claim it's specific to the gothic movement.

I hope the rest of you - I'm guessing Stacy has realized this, but I don't know about the rest - is we're not talking about goth as a gimmick anymore, I think now we're just discussing it's relevance and legitimacy as a subculture/movement. anyhow, that's how I'm treating the discussion.

I just find the usefulness of goth style being worn out. Like in the 90s, Manson projected some interesting juxtapositions (using crosses against military images, or whatever) and I find that stuff interesting and at least controvery-provoking, but after a while it seemed to be more shock for shock's sake, without any true artistic point. or maybe, like the Pumpkins, the artistic point became too deep and too much and no one ever really got it. Basically, like a lot of things in music, I want them to evolve. NIN and MM initially brought something really cool to the table, but now I find it old and tiresome. Like I've been angry at God, I've been angry at our government. But it's not useful to just keep saying that. It's more interesting to look at it a different way and push myself further, really question my beliefs or the world's beliefs or whatever.

Your love of the image is something wholly different from my reasons for disliking goth though. I can appreciate your affection for the image (although I don't exactly find that image attractive :p)... I dunno. Stuff.

I understand completely. But like you're saying, its all up to personal opinion. I, personally, think that the whole anger against god & government is probably more relevant now that it was 10 years ago. I'm not tired of it. And personally I think that venting your frustrations is fine, with or without posing a solution. Its just reinforcing something that so many of us feel...and that's really all music is, something you can relate to.

On a related note, sometimes I just like to have angry music to listen to for when I'm angry or need to get pumped up for something. Hell, I used to love Slipknot, and not for any other reason that I liked to scream along with the music, its just a means of venting for me. It doesn't always have to have some grand wonderful point to it, because sometimes the point is just blind anger.

And just out of curiousity, what do you think would be a prime example of something positive in terms of "true artistic point"? Like, since MM and NIN don't do it for you, who does?

So many people I knew got into MM when ACS came out, and some even after that. It seems that the majority of those people can't handle any of the earlier stuff and I'm almost positive because its not the same...and that's kinda silly to me.

I mean, Manson before MA and Manson after MA are 2 totally different styles.

I know you understand this phenomena...its kinda like the 14 year olds getting into Green Day now. You're just going to have a different expectation.

not liking something because it's not the same as something i like is silly?

and the "before your time" argument is even more assinine. i was born in 1985, there's quite a lot of stuff before my time that i like.

No, the differences between new MM and old MM aren't huge...so why kids who eat up the new stuff and hate the older (better imo) stuff is beyond me.

Why do you think Portrait sucks?

Again, that's beside my point.

But WHY? What specific characteristics do you take into consideration when you tell me that your opinion of Portrait of an American Family is not a good album?

:dammit:

it just doesn't hang together that well imo. the songs aren't of a consistently high standard and there isn't a consistent feel or progression. it feels like a bunch of songs cobbled together in any old order onto an album. in my opinion antichrist superstar hangs together much better as does mechanical animals.

you know krazee, people do have differing tastes. i don't understand why it's so incomprehensible to you that i like one album better than another. you're the one spouting off shit like
"it's before your time" and using the debate clinching rofl smiley.

i think it's juvenile, the songs aren't as well put together or thought out, the production isn't as good, the lyrics and vocals aren't as good, etc. you disagree. no one is right or wrong. i'm perfectaly capable of appreciating it even if i didn't hear it until a later date than you.

Relax, kid. I was being playful.

Anyhow, that's all I wanted to hear, I just wanted to know what you're reasoning was...and all you had to say was its crap and I don't like it. I just wanted to know why. Jeez.

On a related note, I think the intro going into Cake & Sodomy has to be one of my favourite intros to an album ever. They hang together so well, dude.

In other words, I love you.

Side note:
I like Marilyn, Korn and NIN.
Yes, AS and MA was better than POAAF [Marilyn Manson]
But he has sold his soul to money and has lost the ability to make soulful music.
I will never grow tired of NIN, any NIN, but especially their beautiful songs.
Korn-Korn, LifeIsPeachy and FTL: Lovely. It's not a band to listen to if you're looking for complex poetic lyrics, it's for the feel... maybe it's just pure nostalgia for me, but isn't that why we become fans?
