I Don’t Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me) – Dir. Paul Hunter
Manson looks like his fashion was directly inspired by David Bowie, which is only more of a confirmation of the glam rock feel that this album was going for. And while that works, and while many of the visuals are rather fascinating, such as the big-eyed children or the headless police officers, the constant saturation between super bright and super dark makes this a difficult video to watch without getting a headache.
Putting Holes In Happiness – Dir. Philippe Grandrieux
I feel like this video had such great potential. Phillipe Grandrieux is an award-winning director and several of the shots had this delightful eeriness, that for some reason reminded me of The Conjuring mixed with The Woman In Black. However, far too much band performance footage renders this video to be just another entry in Manson’s videography. Ah well.
Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides The Hand) – Dir. Marilyn Manson
Starring then-girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood, this video is sort of a “Lost Highway meets Thelma And Louise” clip, only far more sexual. It’s not a bad video, to be honest, but it’s not a great one. It’s also incredibly dark, which covers a lot of the action.
