VINE VOICETOP 500 REVIEWERon 23 April 2008
Any serious critique of the history of Grand Guignol must
surely take the mind of Mr Manson into account.
1996' 'Antichrist Superstar' digs around in some very dark
places indeed and this from a man used to digging darkly.

Decay, madness, dissolution, gristle and blood and bone.
Polymorphous perversity by the bucket load.

And what jolly good fun it is too !

Mr Manson, both with his music and personae creates a healthy balance,
a veritable antidote, in holding up a mirror to the hypocritical,
slimy, white underbelly of New American Puritanism.

This splendid music has a coherence sometimes absent from his work
both pre and post 'Antichrist'. The neural assault is heartily sustained
from the first note until the last. Don't expect any respite.
Enormous credit is due here to the estimable Mr Reznor's production duties,
aptly and ably recorded at home in his New Orleans funeral parlour studio.

'Dried Up, Tied Up And Dead To The World'; 'Tourniquet'; 'Cryptorchid';
'The Reflecting God'; a few among many delights on this near-perfect album.
The delicious 'Deformography' (Just loving that title) a personal favorite.

I have heard it said that in 'Real Life' Mr. Manson is a veritable pussy cat.
Each of us may need to ask none-the-less whether or not we could
trust this man with our own basket of kittens.

A thrilling nihilistic necessity.

God Is Dead After All.

This is an essentail Manson album but not for new fans who should get Lest We Forget with the bonus DVD but it still rocks. It has metal tracks like Irresponsible Hate Anthem, The Beautiful People which is amazing, Angel With The Scabbed wings, The Reflecting God, and many more. Also the incredibley creepy Cryptochid and track 99 and some other killers like Antichrist Superstar although that sounds much better live. If anyone thinks there metal collection is complete without this then think again.
It is amazing.

The best of his back catalogue in my opinion, reminds me of being a teen again. Great fun.
