    [Music] Marilyn Manson

    How many of you listen to/have listened to marilyn manson? I've been a huge fan in the past but I don't like his new work.
    This song is ending. But the story never ends.

    I was a fan in his early days up through the Antichrist Superstar days lost my attention when he went glam. I have seen them in concert 3-4 times I have 2 guitar picks and an autographed part of the bible he tore up during the one show.

    I was huge into Marilyn Manson in the late 90s/early 2000s. I actually got into him during Portrait of an American Family (Get Your Gunn is great), and I saw him live in the Dead to the World tour, which was the controversial one around Columbine where people wanted to ban him.

    I even bought his book which was very well written, and impressed with his interview in Bowling for Columbine, which became downright hilarious because it was contrasted with an interview with Britney Spears.

    I liked Mechanical Animals, but haven't bought anything since then. He said on that album that rock is deader than dead, and combined with the glam, androgynous look he went for on that album, I thought he was being a little bit facetious....15 years later, I'm not so sure, I'm not sure I've listened to a mainstream "rock" album since then.

    You could have posted this in the metal thread.

    That said I love all of Manson's quality material and when he was on the ball his live show was incredible.
    His shitty content not so much.

    Pale Emperor is better than people think, much better than anything he's done for a good many years.

    I like his stuff. Like most fans I lean towards his earlier content, with his newer stuff (Mobscene onwards) being extremely hit & miss for me.

    I've not bother with any of his newer stuff. Not out of protect or anything I just never hear it. That said, I did like some of his 90s stuff.

    I just got into Manson here in the past couple of years, and I really dig his stuff. All of it. It's cool if you don't like the newer stuff, but I still like it. Eat Me, Drink Me has a shitload of songs about relationships and self-destruction of said relationships. It's pretty much the entire album's theme. High End of Low has some good tracks too, esp. Wight Spider and Blank and White. LOVE The Pale Emperor, even if Third Day of a Seven Day Binge has a plagiarized guitar riff. Warship My Wreck is a great song, and the music video for Deep Six is one of the better attempts at imitating Lynchian surrealism. I just wish he'd do even more acoustic covers and another live album before he retires (if he does anyways). For any old school Manson fans that haven't heard his newer stuff in a while, I'd suggest giving this a listen. Maybe you'll like it, but it's not as hard as his older stuff I suppose.

    TBH, I actually haven't heard anything of his at all since Holy Wood.

    I used to listen to him during the Rock is Dead, Sweet Dreams, The Beutiful People times. But that must have been 15 years ago or something like that.

    Loved his Portrait of an American family, smells like children and antichrist superstar. His last few albums though (mostly the last), not my thing..

    Holy Wood had some good songs on it. Mechanical Animals was all around a great album. Haven't listened to much since Holy Wood though.
    Thank you for all the doubts, and for all the questioning,
    for all the loneliness and for all the suffering.
    For all the emptiness, and the scars it left inside.
    it inspired in me, an impetus to fight.

    Fair point.

    I liked some of his earlier stuff and i've liked some of his production work (resident evil theme etc). Quite honestly, I haven't picked up much new music at all in recent years. New music in general is something phat I pick up on a TV show and hunt down later.

    I've maybe heard a song or two on the radio that I sorta liked (some older stuff like Beautiful People, etc), but that's about it. Overall, I wouldn't say I'm a fan.

    A lot of his songs are hit or miss. I did enjoy Pale Emperor for the most part. Antichrist superstar was great, plus it made for some great teenage angst against my religious parents. (Funny enough, mother likes Manson now :P )

    Debated about going to the Smashing Pumpkins + Manson tour, but I realized I only kinda of like both of them, and tickets were too expensive for bands I enjoy, but don't really crave.

    I've been a big fan since I was 8 years old

    his old stuff is way better, but some of his new stuff is pretty dope too

    Pale Emperor has a lot of really good songs, but if you're looking for the more metal/aggressive Manson of the past you're not gonna find it there

    dude's old now

    I have listened to some stuff over the years, but not really a fan.
    Years back I knew a hot goth girl who was a big fan, that gave me some interest in MM

    Listened to alot of his stuff when I was an angsty teenager in the late 90's. Not sure if he did anything good after his his Holy Wood album. Heard he just kinda sucked musically then. Would like to hear other peoples opinion.

    But yea great nostalgia

    I think The Golden Age of Grotesque was a fantastic album. It still had lots of aggressive songs on it, aswell as some eery slower ones.
