5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Heals, Nothing Grows..., 7 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Last Tour on Earth (Audio CD)
Marilyn Manson will always cause people's eyes to roll; either people with enough taste to see through his poorly thought out faux-intellectualism (such as the whole Disney-Facist theme) or else people with a strong enough prejudice to simply write-off everything the man does because of his low points and cheesier gimmicks without giving the proper credit to the artistic and tasteful side of his repertoire.

This particular live album is arguably of the best live albums in recent times. With an energetic performance, a smooth production and a great track list it is everything that a good live album should be. At this stage in their career the band come across as more talented and vital in the live environment, expanding and improving upon already good songs 'I Don't like the Drugs' and 'The Reflecting God,' with altered lyrics and music that makes them even better than in their original forms.

The excellent and artistic songwriting of the Mechanical Animals and Antichrist Superstar albums comes across really well here, and even songs that predate this golden era like 'Get your Gunn' and even the cover-son 'Sweet Dreams,' (which many people will roll their eyes at) sound not just forgivable, but fantastic in their energetic and expanded live forms.

Sure Goths and twelve-year-olds will always flock to Manson, but that shouldn't stop everyone else from enjoying his work. Don't feel that you are too important to enjoy this great music just because you don't care for some of its fans. Manson is a great artist who may have some flaws, but the pros far outweigh the cons, or at least they did when this seminal live release was recorded.

In summary, if you like Marilyn Manson you will love this, and if you do it will prove to you why you should overwrite your preconceived notions about this awesome performer.
