Product Description

A year on from Portrait of an American Family, Marilyn Manson released the stopgap EP Smells Like Children. Where the full-length debut showed sparks of character and invention beneath industrial metal sludge, Smells Like Children is a smartly crafted horror show, filled with vulgarity, ugliness, goth freaks, and sideshow scares. Manson wisely chose to heighten his cartoonish personality with the EP. Most of the record is devoted to spoken words and samples, all designed to push to the outrage buttons of middle America. Between those sonic collages arrives one new song, retitled remixes of Portrait songs - Kiddie Grinder, Everlasting Cocksucker, Dance of the Dope Hats, White Trash - and three covers (Sweet Dreams, I Put a Spell on You, Rock 'n' Roll Nigger), all given a trademark spooky makeover. Musically, it may not amount to much - it's goth-metal-industrial, as good as the Dope Hat, Lunch Box, and Cake and Sodomy trilogy that distinguished the debut - but as a sonic sculpture, as an objet d'art, it's effective and wickedly fascinating. It's exactly what Brian Warner needed to do to establish Marilyn Manson as America's bogeyman for the late '90s. [And it also helped enhance his myth for his fans. Smells Like Children originally was released promotionally, complete with unauthorized Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory samples and other unapproved sound bites. It was pulled, censored, and re-edited (Abuse, Pt. 1 and Abuse, Pt. 2 were removed from the EP) before it was officially released in October 1995, and the original promo copies became valuable collectibles and the most bootlegged item in the Manson catalog.

’95年発表。ナイン・インチ・ネイルズのT・レズナーが設立したレーベルに所属する彼らの2作目(トレントが共同プロデュース)。おどろおどろしいルックスのシアトリカルな5人組で、本作もオープニングから暗いムードが漂い、SE的なトラックもあり、ホラー映画のサントラのよう。ユーズミックスのカバーEが“甘く”なく、どんよりと“悪夢”のようだし、スクリーミング・ジェイ・ホーキンスのカバーHにも不気味さがある。

しっかりした曲は少ないものの、初期のマンソン様の作品の中ではかなりよい作品だと思う。敬愛するマンソン様の曲はどれもすばらしいが、そのなかでも特にお薦めは2曲目の「DiaryofaDopeFiend」  これは、godであらせられるマンソン様の世界観が表現された非の打ち所のない作品。一度は聞いてみるべき。
