Get the version with the free DVD if you can!
on 14 March 2006
This would make a superb introduction to Marilyn Manson's work, and will surely send any newbie scrambling for the back catalogue. If you've already got all the studio albums, there are several reasons to buy this anyway...
1. "The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell" is on it (stupendous song only previously included on the soundtrack to Spawn I think)
2. The song ordering works very well indeed, it's as if Mister Manson has recorded a compilation of his stuff for you. Which is nice.
3. MOST IMPORTANTLY...make sure you get a copy that comes with the free DVD. This gem of a disc includes every promotional vid the band ever did, which is just fantastic. I hadn't seen any of the first album vids before. There's even one when Manson still had eyebrows...back in the days when he was a handsome devil indeed!
Oh, and the accompanying photos of Manson are excellent, but it would have been nice to have included some of Twiggy, surely? One even? And when did the name "Marilyn Manson" stop meaning the whole band and start just meaning the singer? Maybe you should ask Alice Cooper...
