From start to finish , Gods, Guns And Government is a piece of art, with such tracks as the ever popular "Dope Show" or the foot stomper anthem of "Rock is Dead".
The best thing about the whole thing is that none of his band loses a beat or a chord making breathless in every sense, even haters of Warner can't help but gasp at his onstage antics like creepy stilt walking during "The Nobodies" or the elevation trick during "Cruici-fiction in space".
Along with "The Death Parade" bonus featuring back stage footage of his world tour, Gods, Guns And Government can not be faulted, a great addition to any music lover.
The Gods Guns & Government World Tour punched England hard and I remember surviving the Docklands show with one thought, I wanted to wrap the show up and keep it for myself. I smiled as DVD finally reached the Manson camp.
Ill keep this review simple as any flare for the dramatic can be viewed instead on the DVD.
The DVD experience resembles conjoined-twins. On the left sits an on-stage montage footage. Each live audio track is blurred with a flickering image set of various live visuals that confuse the viewer. The set list is true to the concert, erupting from the subdued COUNT TO SIX AND DIE into the classic, volcanic IRRESPONSIBLE HATE ANTHEM and REFLECTING GOD. Where would we be without those and thats just the start. Trawl through the guts of FIGHT SONG, DOPE SHOW,SWEET DREAMS and then wrench the volume up harder for ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR and let those hairs on your neck shiver!
After the remnants of BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, ASTONISHING PANORAMA and LUNCHBOX withdraw into the DVD.. take a break then meet the other twin: Behind the Tour-30 minutes of Manson seduction.
Follow the band on their visits to Russia, Tokyo, London and reminise with former members Twiggy and J5 (who co-directed this feature). Scenes from the J5 birthday, Mansons backstage surgery and Pogo acting his hyperactive self, throws you to the centre of their world.
If you sweated at the concert or you simply wish for a taste of the sour wine then buy this DVD. This will leave you searching for the next tour dates![Rated 4 out of 5 only because of the video montage effect]
You may already know this; but for those who don't, this Blu Ray is not a simple transfer of the previously released DVD 'Guns God And Government,' which featured footage from all around the world on different nights. The Blu Ray is taken entirely from one concert in LA during the same tour but also features the same bonus features as the original DVD (chiefly a documentary/montage entitled 'The Death Parade')
The concert is just over and hour and a half in length and features sixteen tracks, including the unreleased 'Astonishing Panorama of the End Times,'as well as seven tracks from the then new Holywood album in addition to a selection of live favorites from older albums.
The band features John 5, Twiggy Ramirez, M.W. Gacy and Ginger Fish, in what many fans have come to consider the classic line up.
The video quality is pretty incredible and its surprising just what a huge improvement this is over the previously released DVD, especially when the house lights are up. When the lights are up, this 2002 concert looks better than many live Blu Rays filmed as recently as last year and the team behind this Blu Ray have clearly done an excellent job.Read more ›
This is an excellent DVD rock show recording of a fantastic live band.

I love Marilyn Manson but was disappointed that he mimes most of the songs. The quality in the picture is excellent and he does sing live in some parts but not most of the songs.Published on 27 Jan. 2013 by Mr. Ian P. Lock
