For a best of package, this is pretty good. There are some truly fantastic recordings on here that span up to Golden Age of Grotesque and there are some real belters like Fight Song and Irresponsible Hate Anthem that should help anyone who is new to Marilyn Manson go scurrying for his back catalogue. Personally, his earlier material is easily the best and hardest stuff. The Reflecting God is possibly the best song he has ever done. If you only know him for Beautiful People or Sweet Dreams and you liked those, some of these songs may be too much for you but give them a listen.

Would had of liked to have seen this best of spread over 2 discs. Holywood had some crackers on it. It was never a single but Target Audience Narcissus was an amazing track and Anti-Christ Superstar from "Anti-Christ Superstar" is also missing which is a shame.

The DVD is a decent accompaniment to this best of. It has many of the music video's you may not have seen or remembered, a few documentary style recordings and galleries. You will know if you have the DVD and CD version as it will be much thicker and come as a folding cardboard case. That version is a few items down when you search for Lest We Forget so make sure you click the right one. The CD version just comes with many of the photographs of Manson's career in the booklet, the DVD and CD combo version has it printed onto the packaging inside which looks better

If you prefer a single collection of some of an artist's best work, by all means get this. It condenses down some of the more popular song Manson has done. If you prefer the other way though, get these Albums first.

Anti Christ Superstar - 3rd Album. Heavy
Omega and the Mechanical Animals. 4th Album. Probably the break through one. More mainstream than ACS
Holywood - In The Valley of the Shadow of Death. 5th Album. My Personal Favourite
The Last Tour on Earth. The Reflecting God live is immense

Sadly, Golden Age of Grotesque is where you start to see Manson fall. Eat Me, Drink Me has a handful of decent songs and The High End of Low again only a handful, but I would recommend Four Rusted Horses from that Album. The simple drumming and bass is great.

I didnt like Manson's music until last year when I was deeply exposed to it, this is a compilation of his best songs, It kicks serious music butt, Marilyn Mansons Personal Jesus song rocks (this being a new song, not a greatest hit).
Buy this album trust me its well worth it.

I chose this album only because of the track that was on the Matrix movie. All in all, it's not a bad album but it hasn't inspired me yo buy any of his others.
