    Given I've only had one full listen, and it came out two days ago, I'll ease off adding material from WE ARE CHAOS to this compilation. As a retrospective of what Manson's achieved since his last Best Of, this is my pick:-

    1. Arma-Goddamn-Motherfuckin'-Geddon
    2. Putting Holes In Happiness
    3. No Reflection
    4. Don't Chase The Dead
    5. SAY10
    6. Third Day Of A Seven Day Binge
    7. Four Rusted Horses
    8. We Know Where You Fucking Live
    9. You And Me And The Devil Makes 3
    10. Slo-Mo-Tion
    11. Cry Little Sister
    12. Saturnalia
    13. Killing Strangers
    14. The Gardener
    15. 15



    I think this demonstrates the scope of Manson's songwriting, and changes in direction since Lest We Forget, whilst also taking the listener on a strong journey through his psyche. Plus it performs the same function as ...Forget, which was to showcase his music succinctly, whilst also offering a solid collection of standalone songs someone unfamiliar with his work could access easily. I'm just sessioning it in a playlist and it flows really nicely.

    Also, these aren't necessarily all my favourite songs from his last six albums, just the best collection I feel would represent his canon.

    I love making lists and playlists and stuff, it's fucking soothing. Probably few people will read this and no one will reply, but I'm having a good time right now lol. Just getting into this section of his discography and listening to and rating songs I haven't heard in a while. Good times.
    But anyway, this one is actually harder to compose than one would think. EMDM, THEOL and BV are albums that are not rated high on these forums, but when you try making a Best Of you really realise there are a lot more solid tracks than you'd think or remember. That was the case for me at least, but I don't dislike albums like THEOL as much as most fans I guess. I would have expected more songs from BV, I guess that explains why it has been ages since I listened to it in full lol.
    Because WAC is still very new the songs I picked may not be saying much. Right now I'm completely in love with Keep My Head Together, but three days ago that was the case with Don't Chase the Dead. Next week I'll have new favorites I guess. But I have nothing to do now so I'm making this fucking list.

    I decided to make a personal one, obviously this one is not very realistic. But these songs are really fucking solid in my opinion. And the selection represents every album/era pretty well in my opinion. And I'd like to see a Best Of that is not mainly a singles collection. The songs that aren't released as singles usually have lots more depth and meaning to me.

    1. If I Was Your Vampire
    2. Don't Chase the Dead
    3. Cupid Carries a Gun
    4. Wight Spider
    5. Solve Coagula
    6. Blood Honey
    7. Paint You With My Love
    8. Born Villain
    9. Saturnalia
    10. Broken Needle
    11. Third Day of a Seven Day Binge
    12. Children of Cain
    13. Warship My Wreck
    14. Keep My Head Together
    15. I Have to Look Up Just to See Hell
    16. EAT ME, DRINK ME
    17. Odds of Even


    BONUS:
    Cat People (Putting Out Fire)
    Cry Little Sister

    Just quickly looked at streams, views, chart performances, live play lists and tried to recall which tracks were used in series, movies games and what were his best received songs etc. This is what I think would most likely be on post LWF best of album, if such thing would be released:

    Deep Six,
    KILL4ME,
    Don‘t Chase The Dead,
    SAY10,
    Third Day Of The Seven Day Binge,
    No Reflection,
    We Are Chaos,
    God‘s Gonna Cut You Down,
    We Know Where You Fucking Live,
    If I Was Your Vampire,
    Fuckingeddon,
    Cupid Carries a Gun,
    Heart-Shaped Glasses,
    Four Rusted Horses,
    Killing Strangers,
    Saturnalia,
    Broken Needle

    Not sure Fuckingeddon and WKWYFL would make it on the list (even if they were lead singles), but I may be biased since I don't like them. And Saturnalia doesn't need to be released as a single or appear on stage or in movies. It would be there because it is masterpiece.

    My personal one would look like this:
    1. IF I WAS YOUR VAMPIRE
    2. JUST A CAR CRASH AWAY
    3. EAT ME DRINK ME
    4. LEAVE A SCAR (ALTERNATE VERSION)
    5. FOUR RUSTED HORSES
    6. FLOWERS OF EVIL
    7. DEEP SIX
    8. WARSHIP MY WRECK
    9. FAITED, FAITHFUL, FATAL
    10. DEVIL BENEATH MY FEET
    11. PERFUME
    12. SAY10
    13. CUPID CARRIES A GUN
    14. KILL4ME
    15. SATURNALIA
    16. DON‘T CHASE THE DEAD
    17. HALFWAY & ONE STEP FORWARD
    18. PAINT YOU WITH MY LOVE
    19. THIRD DAY OF THE SEVEN DAY BINGE

    It is for the most part chronological to take me on journey through his post LWF work. Just with TPE songs scattered because I picked more than half of that album. And then there are songs on Mephisto/Satan/witchcraft theme clustered together.
