    My two number one fav of this album are My Monkey and Dogma, My Monkey (MM) is the one I enjoy the most, another fav are Wrapped in plastic, Cake & Sodomy and Dope Hat... I would put White Knuckles or Magic 8 ball than Cyclops... Cyclops was the only song that I usually skip when I hear the album. Argentinian version includes Down In the Park as a Bonus track and Brown Bag, Down In the park I think should be in this poll, that cover is amazing. The rest of the songs are really good too, love them too but not my favs, I could say that Prelude is one of the pearls too with that Willy Wonka scary adaption that gives more sence to the lyrics

    It's been a while since I listened to POAAF and surprisingly the track that I directly thought of while trying to pick my favorite was Dogma. I love how aggressive and creepy it is, to me it's a perfect track to sum up the whole vibe of this record and the era. This track also has a very weird effect on me - every time I listen to it, I feel like a teenager again.
    Songs that came very close were Dope Hat, Wrapped in Plastic and Snake Eyes And Sissies.

    True, and let's not forget that the chorus of the song is printed across the face of the CD.

    This is something of an aside, but looking at that rendering of his tattoo, I've always loved how his foray into painting would eventually start to reflect his earlier drawing artwork, even in subtle ways. Just looking at the Cyclops you can see it foreshadowing Mouth For War or Those Bits Down There Are Gristle. It might be unsurprising that Portrait Of An American Family and Lest We Forget are the only Manson releases where the cover typography are from his own original sketching, given that Lest We Forget was arguably also the point where his painting became as prevalent as the music.
    Think of all those flyers and posters and demo artworks where the jagged, sinister characters and symbols would later start to feature in his watercolours also. Underrated with a pencil or brush, that Manson.

    Oh, Snake Eyes And Sissies. You can hear echoes of that track in Overneath The Path Of Misery, I think.
    "the Serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which
    the LORD god had made
    "

    I guess it shouldn't be surprising that the most popular tracks are the 3 singles, and Snake Eyes and Sissies which was intended as lead single.

    No love for Organ Grinder apparently. That was going to be one of my picks for "Top 3" but lost out to Cake and Sodomy last second.

    Really? On what parts? I love Overneath but never got Snakes Eyes & Sissies from it.

    You know how the guitars jump from slightly creeping main riffs and then transition to verse/chorus crunch? I'm pretty sure you can trace the same structure in Overneath The Path Of Misery. I've listened to them back-to-back and I think that helps.
