    This record did set off a lot of people, including Manson for it being labeled Goth when it came out. And correct me if I'm wrong, but this album came out right before that EMO bull crap came about?

    I think a lot of Emo bands were pretty huge around the album's release. Wasn't 'Mutilation...' pretty much directed at My Chemical Romance? Or am I misremembering something?

    It's an odd period in music, nothing was really 'big' at the time, so what Manson might have been railing against seems somewhat weak in retrospect. Bear in mind though, Nu-Metal died on its ass, and the crossover acts were few and far betweeen; maybe System Of A Down, Slipknot and Rammstein, that's about it...

    He was right to take a stand at that state of music, but I think since then without him trying, 'Emo' and the mid noughties chart toppers generally killed themselves off quicker than Manson's consternation.

    It's highly regarded as one of my favorite summertime albums.

    I loved this album when it first came out and still do.

    I absolutely love the guitar work on the album from Skold and feel it makes the songs more interesting musically, the guitar solos are a nice addition as well. I was quite disappointed at the time when Shold left after this album, would've loved to hear more from Manson & Skold and to see where they would've went after.

    Hearing The High End of Low afterward was a massive disappointment to me at the time and I lost interest in Manson for a number of years afterwards. It's only been in the past year where I've gone back to that album and come to really like and appreciate half the songs on it.

    2007 was also my first time of seeing Manson live, first headlining Download then at the Birmingham arena, one visual that sticks in my head from that show is Manson using the massive chair prop for 'Are You the Rabbit?',.
