Old news but still never too odd to revisit listening to any of these.

Indeed, and they are nice renditions. I downloaded them and burned 'em a number of years ago.

It was awesome when Manson toured with a string section for ACS.

Manson actually used the String Quartet version of ACSS as an intro during recent tours. I believe it was for the Rape of the World tour.

I like the rendition of User Friendly best.

^^I think it was actually legs of Against All Gods.

He used the ACSS String Quartet to open the Grotesk Burlesk tour too

Which ever it was it was in 2004 for sure. I just found the mp3 of the concert that features it. In any case I love this album. My favorite would be A Place in the dirt, it kept the feel of the song really well.

I really liked the Speed of Pain, when it kicks in it sounds so cool.

I think they changed their name to the Vitamin String Orchestra, at least that's how you can find their other work on Spotify which is also great.

Yep I have this, it's really good. My favorite's probably User Friendly.

This is undoubtely the best tribute that has done to MM's music. I like most of them... besides "Cake and Sodomy", "Disposable Teens" and "Speed of Pain".

In fact, they make great tributes: I have the NIN, Deftones, A pPerfect Circle and HIM tributes as well.
