    I appreciate the effort he put in to give a functional answer to a question that most of us struggle with, and we weren't involved in the making of them. It is fascinating to know now what he considers to be the most emotionally satisfying of the albums, and why/why not. Also huh, the guitar on Born Villain. Guess that shows everyone who disses his playing on Pistol Whipped.

    I can't remember who it was, but I remember some respected musician saying something like "If you don't think your new album is the best of your career you have no business releasing it. Get back in the fucking studio and try again".

    What is confirmed? He mentions that Twiggy was in a bad place during Born Villain, which Twiggy himself has spoken about several times regarding his subsequent sobriety. I'm sure it was during that tour that he claimed to have woken up in a pool of blood, or vomit, and has been clean since.
    I think assuming or wedging the hype around Twiggy more recently into what Manson says about something six years ago is reading between the lines.

    I was referring to the fact that a lot of fans felt Twiggy wasn't as invested in the band as he once was, not the recent allegations.

    So no, Did you even pay attention to WHY he ranked Holy Wood as the number one? Or are you a selective reader to better your own personal opinions? I'm glad he acknowledges Pale Emperor and Heaven Upside down as his favorites. They're probably the best thing to come and all thanks to the Bates.

    Also, it's funny how he forgets when he was actually married since he's proclaiming it was during Golden Age. His own memory is starting to slip just like when a different editor corrected him in an article. Y I K E S
    Oh my, talking about "I'm oh, so right" assholes...

    As a poet, I can assure that every artist's latests works are usually their favorites, simply because they're their latest efforts, and speak to them about recent issues...

    So, chill the fuck down.

    I would rather him rank his own tours. To me, live performances of songs off of each album from Marilyn Manson and other various artists should be (and him for a while) were intended to augment recorded studio versions of the tracks to accompany fans into a live experience of the atmosphere from which each album was engendered/attitude put into creating them for being rapt into during each performance.

    *Look at that run-on sentence lol*

    I think it would be interesting for him to rank his tours. I think him speaking of himself and his work in retrospective is interesting. Like back on That Metal Show, he talked about his past looks, which i thought was cool. Especially for someone of such high status, who has seemed to be humble about themselves, provide comments on themselves, from the perspective of us, and himself.

    Manson talked a lot about doing the guitars on Born Villian and he had photographs holding guitars and saw him in the Slo-Mo-Tion video. It was no secret Twiggy didnít do as much for Born Villian and MM took a greater role with guitar.

    Which Iíve always thought over the past few years that Twiggys return I donít think turned into anything so great. It was just a decade ago the unthinkable happened and they announced theyíd reunited. The High End Of Low is really the only album we can class as a MM & Twiggy album and some of that was reworked Goon Moon ideas. THEOL is a great album and reflects MM so well at that period of time in his life... but I just donít think we got the chance to see MM and Twiggy really raise a beast like they did in the past. THEOL felt like MM and Twiggy warming up and I always expected something greater to follow from them both. But it appears it didnít work out like that.

    But Iím always open to change and where we are now, MM and Tyler Bates have created incredible albums.
