Oh and Mechanical Animals was an awesome album. I watched the video you are all talking about and it's really try hard. I could read poetry with more passion than him.

The current wiki article doesn't mention 'homosexual acts on stage'.

The fat photos are from 2009, I believe.
Zoe Griffin reports on his phat phase and gets groped in the bargain:



Marilyn Manson is FAT « Zoe

Here's a nonfat MM last week in LA, reading with less passion than Vanilla would offer:

just start with "Antichrist Superstar" or "Portrait of an American Family".

His Greatest hits is usually a good start point, has all his best material including his godly covers of Tainted Love, Personal Jesus & Sweet Dreams.

I'm a huge fan. I was reading this site the other day and it just reminded me of how Manson used to be so though provoking and intelligent. He may be a 'dopey clown' these days, but it's nice to have some nostalgia for the golden years lol.

I suggest you check it out, it's pretty rad. Link removed by moderator. No advertising please.
Also, Mechanical Animals is clearly the greatest album. =)

naw. Mechanical Animals is good, but the albums before were better.... unless mediocre Bowie worship is your idea of great.

I like the fact that an artist regarded as well past his prime can still conjour up so many replies-he obviously still has alot of fans awaiting their next installment! Its obvious from his videos alone, that Manson is a very graphical artist and at times even a very good song writer, but is by no means a great singer. He usually does his best in the studio. His change of style from album to album however makes it hard for many to get an overall impression and opinion, to decide whether to like the artist or what to try out first. Thats probably where the bowie similarities start and stop (like bowie, changing style), although I think his 'Mechanical Animals' album from 1998 was the most obvious link to the bowie era-very 70s glam rock-with tracks such as "I dont like the drugs (but the drugs like me)" being most notable. Personally I think Antichrist, Mechanical Animals and Holywood are his best, so I would try one of those first-for fans of heavier music obviously Antichrist is the obvious first choice, for mainstream rock Mechanical Animals, and for a mix of both, Holywood. Check out youtube for his best works, some popular favourites:-

The Beautiful People, Tourniquet, 1996, Man That You Fear - from Antichrist Superstar
Rock Is Dead, The Dope Show, I Dont Like The Drugs, Coma White - from Mechanical Animals
Disposable Teens, The Fight Song, The Nobodies - from Holywood

I remember the last two receiving accolades in the year released from magazines-in many 'best albums of the year' lists. Not a bad result from what many would argue was "a poor artist". Everything before the albums above (before 1996 and not on a major label-ie the "portrait of an american family" debut and "smells like children" EP) was noted by many magazines as simply more of a trent reznor side project than anything else-as a young artist his writing ability was no where near on the same level as the above albums or as it is now-after all, it was mainly a reasonable cover of 'sweet dreams (are made of this)' on his first EP that made him aquire the most media attention at that stage in his career. After he broke off from trent reznor (after Antichrist in 1996), manson had more control over production and his own character began to show far more in his work. I dont think he's quite finished yet though, he has some major supporters in music (the most obvious arguably Nick Cave-for obvious reasons), and I did like a few tracks from the last couple of albums (Into the Fire, Just A Car Crash Away, Mobscene) but I dont think he will ever reach the same level as he did back around 98/2000, unless he has some genuine new ideas-the current "born villian" track doing the rounds on youtube may be a short studio demo, but it sounds to me that hes trying to copy himself from his own cooper-esque Antichrist Superstar era. The fact that that album was his first major break into the industry just a coincidence, despite the fact that hes wanting to get more attention now that he has in the last few years? I dont think so, but for overall quality, I think the fans will just have to wait to find out.

Manson's great, I love the music. Nothing recent tho, even "Born Villain" is lacking for me and "Eat Me, Drink Me"/"High End of Low" weren't good at all. In fact, "Eat Me/Drink Me" is pretty pitiful in every way.

Anti-Christ Superstar through Golden Age of Grotesque is damn nice stuff. Mechnical Animals being my favorite. Funny enough I don't really care for much of the material pre-Anti-Christ Superstar, not as refined and intense as the following albums.

His video's are amazing. The poster above said it all in regards to that. He's just a great all around 'artist' and an interesting character.

Tho, way too many TV interviews defending himself and his antics to complete ****ing tools. Takes away from the fun and the mystique.

He's way past it and musically finished IMO, but damn he had conservative America and the religious right horrified in the 90s. Hahaha, I'll always love anyone for that.
