Biography

The tumultuous relationship Marilyn Manson has cultivated with the public through his genre-defying music and anti-status quo message of thinking for oneself has resulted in sold-out tours, protests, legal battles, adoration, hate, more than 50 million records sales, award-winning distilled spirits, several Grammy nominations and, most importantly, a long list of some of the most enduring and ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Culled from the band’s ten year, six album career, Lest we Forget: The Best of Marilyn Manson features some of the greatest rock anthems of the last decade. Opening with "The Love Song" from Holy Wood, it proceeds to the first of a handful of cover songs which have made it as singles. The decadent, beefed up version of Depeche Mode’s "Personal Jesus" may not vary much from the original but the band do it the appropriate Goth justice; "Tainted Love" adds a menacing, industrial-glam to the electric northern soul of Soft Cell’s version; and the one that broke them into the UK mainstream, "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics sounds as good as ever. So, they do a good cover but it’s really the fists in the air crowd-pleasing anthems that back up the band’s iconic imagery. The high-energy signature tune, "Beautiful People" and tracks like "Disposable Teens" or "The Fight Song" typify the band’s intelligent approach to rock’n’roll posturing. While many may have all the albums already, Lest We Forget is the perfect addition for anyone who likes the odd song but was too fearful to delve any further in the world of Marilyn Manson. --Georgina Collins

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the version with the free DVD if you can! 14 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
This would make a superb introduction to Marilyn Manson's work, and will surely send any newbie scrambling for the back catalogue. If you've already got all the studio albums, there are several reasons to buy this anyway...

1. "The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell" is on it (stupendous song only previously included on the soundtrack to Spawn I think)
2. The song ordering works very well indeed, it's as if Mister Manson has recorded a compilation of his stuff for you. Which is nice.
3. MOST IMPORTANTLY...make sure you get a copy that comes with the free DVD. This gem of a disc includes every promotional vid the band ever did, which is just fantastic. I hadn't seen any of the first album vids before. There's even one when Manson still had eyebrows...back in the days when he was a handsome devil indeed!

Oh, and the accompanying photos of Manson are excellent, but it would have been nice to have included some of Twiggy, surely? One even? And when did the name "Marilyn Manson" stop meaning the whole band and start just meaning the singer? Maybe you should ask Alice Cooper...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Marilyn Manson 20 April 2005
By D. Owen
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit this album sealed my love for Marilyn's music, having never bought any of his earlier albums, I was tempted to buy this one after hearing his version of "Tainted Love" and "Sweet Dreams" and seeing the videos on the music channel and boy was I bowled over!
This album is full of catchy lyrics and heavy beats, do not be put off by this guys scary image, his songs are pure class and you definately do not have to be a goth to appreciate his work!
Buy it and be very pleasantly suprised!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Shall Never Forget This 28 Sep 2004
By CjK
Format:Audio CD
All of the greatest hits on one disc, featuring new single, the remake of "personal Jesus" which is even better then the remake of "tainted love" which also features on this album! Rip-roaring gothic music at its best! from "The Love Song" the album is set for more fantastic hits, each individually delicious and mOBSCENE.
If you are new to this genre and are looking for something to get you started, nothing is better than this, Nightwish is also advisable! The tracks have been carefully chosen and placed in perfect order. Marilyn Manson's music is so original and sinister and even if you are not a particular fan i think you could defintly appreciate what i am saying. He is a hugely successful artists and his band are so talented. So Many songs to choose from, listen to them all and begin to appreciate one of the best in its genre!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best CD but a good one 7 April 2005
By Nayo
Format:Audio CD
Well for a best hits album it isn't bad, actually, I only bought this album so I would have all of Marilyn Manson's albums but I'm glad I bought it. Because I thought it would be worth it, I bought the special edition one with the extra DVD and it was worth it! The only thing I was annoyed about was the fact that they did not put the 'tainted love' video on the DVD, yet they put the 'personal jesus' video on it!!! I was gobsmacked! Especially because I love the 'tainted love' video!
And the other thing that annoyed me is that they didnt put 'dope hat' on the CD!!! How come? I do not know! But yes overall it was worth the 17 i paid for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars His best all in one! 8 July 2007
By DH
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are a Marilyn Manson fan and want most of his best songs in one then this is the one for you.It includes his greatest hits that are listed on the page. Although Antichrist Superstar, coma white,spade and Heart shaped Glasses aren't on there (those are some of my favourites) it includes all his old stuff and some songs I hadn't heard before. Apperantley the DVD is also good but get this.This is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE DOPEST SHOW ON EARTH! 9 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a great place to start with an absolute icon of heavy music, he is a pioneer in the field, he has never conformed or backed down in his message of free speech and liberation for all.
Sure, you may think he has a few sacrificed virgins beneath his bed, but having met him, hes just an ordinary lovely chap.
That aside, he is the greatest rock icon this side of AD.
Its all here, the seedy covers given the Manson magic touch, from the nightmarish "Sweet Dreams" through to the hugely successful "Tanited Love" and finally a near revelatory cover of Depeche Modes "Personal Jesus".
The fist-pumping furious anthems are all here, Manson screaming like a demented, pissed off preacher holding sway over a generation of jaded and angry teens. His glammy, posturing, and highly artistic ventures into the bizarre continue with amazing songs such as "The Dope Show" and "Rock is Dead" however, Im slightly dissappointed that Coma White and I dont like the drugs... arent on this album.
A churlish point considering that this album is full to the brim with incredible, dark, brooding and intelligent rock; the biting, hateful lyrics underpinned by grinding, heavy brain smashing guitar work and a driving beat.
His finest moments are all here : The Dope Show, The Fight Song, Disposable Teens, Tourniquet, Rock is Dead, mObscene, and of course, it would be criminal not to mention the song, the anthem, the single that really got us listening to Manson, "The Beautiful People". If I were to sum up this album in one word..actually I cant..try this: absolutelyincrediblyundeniablybrilliantlyanthemicallyotherworldyGenius.
