4. No, he has some good stuff.
Mechanical Animals is his best overall album in my opinion. Antichrist is second.

7. No, you're not weird
I've never heard his music before. What would you recommend? Pick two songs.

10. He has to be one of the most intelligent people in an interview
He is very bright and astute. I don't listen to most of his music, but as a person, despite the weird image, he has it together. He is someone who knows how to market himself.

20. I agree with you on the promotion thingy
I've only heard snippets of his music but I saw him being interviewed...one intelligent guy. Alice Cooper is similarly intelligent as is Lemmy who fronted Motorhead. Difficult to avoid the sneaking suspicion that they are all playing a shrewd marketing game.

As for the quality of the music...I'm not qualified to coment on that!

35. Yes, I can't really comment on the music
I like all sorts of music, I just haven't listened to Manson. He has found his niche.

11. Alice Cooper... minus
the talent...

I know Brian, and if it wasn't for cover tunes, he'd be workin' the window at Wendy's!!!

Sorry...

31. Visual Type or Visual Kai bands
Specialize in creating dramatic stage presense and persona. The image is as much a part of the performance as the music. And a tradition seems to be that they are all male but have one crossdresser in the group. Very very theatric stuff.

26. He didn't do a damn thing with it!
If I want to hear a dead-on cover with a different vocalist, I'll go see a DM cover band.
