This review is from: Portrait Of An American Family (Audio CD)
Portrait is an interesting Manson album, showing how his excellent song writing in its earliest stages. It has classic Manson songs such as Cake And Sodomy, Lunchbox, Get Your Gunn and the cover of a Charles Manson song, My Monkey. The album while not his worst (Smells Like Children), is rather bland and unpolished however, having an almost grunge like feel to it which may be odd for for those more used to Mansons alternative metal from Antichrist and Holywood. An album worth having for those wanting to have all of Mansons best songs in their collection, but if you want MM's best stuff buy Antichrist/Mechanical Animals/Holywood.
