I used to be a big manson fan, the other albums such as antichrist superstar and mehcanical animals used to be my favourite albums, they are alot more slick and shiny compared. Those albums represent the marilyn manson everybody knows today, but this album keeps shouting me back. The actual music on this album is plain old badass hard rock, infact its kinda grungy, its a hell of a lot rawer and for me thats better and more authentic. Theres some great guitar work on this one also.
The songs are of the same kind of make up of the later stuff, but its much more jaged and less ironed out, its almost like this is the In Utero to the Nevermind, Nevermind representing mansons later stuff, being all cleaned up and radio friendly, and this, the less cheesy more hardcore selection.
Songs to reccomend are, Lunchbox, My Monkey (an abscure yet fun song using vocal pitch shifting, sounds funny!!) Cake and Sodomy, Get Your Gun. The rest are great to, Manson uses some effective yet simple lyrics in all the songs. This album will have u singing the random lyrics all day, and ull find urself scrambling home to put the CD on to find that damn track thats kept u goin all day in ur head.
Id totally recomend this album to all guitarists even if u dont think u like manson, i guarentee theres gonna be a nice lead break here n there that ur gonna love. I recomend this album to anyone who jus likes plain old heavy ass rock n roll cause this album is gonna make u wanna party, give this manson album a chance. honestly..
