Contrary to Mr. Manson's claims, occasional metalcore growls do not make his first post-Interscope album sound particularly "death metal." A few cuts open with dubbish synth distortion that might've fit on old Wax Trax LPs, and "The Flowers of Evil" could conceivably pass as a Bauhaus or Birthday Party homage. But mainly, Born Villain is just more sickly hush-to-moan fetish music with some heavy-panted dominance and submission ("Pistol Whipped"), and lots of whispery talking meant to sound scary -- plus a "You're So Vain" cover with Johnny Depp that Faster Pussycat beat them to by 22 years.
