Marilyn Manson - Personal Jesus
Reviewed by Jack on 30th September 2004
I've never really had much of an opinion of Marilyn Manson before now. However, this Depeche Mode cover seems completely pointless. It sounds exactly like the original, just with distorted guitars and a singer with a sore throat.
I don't mean to sound like I don't like the song. I love the original and I have found myself singing it to myself after hearing the cover on the radio, but it is just too much like the original. I'm not against people doing covers, but releasing them as singles, especially when the artist has brought nothing at all to the track, has little point in my eyes.
