Lest We Forget: The Best Of (Deluxe Edition) [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It's rather ironic that Marilyn Manson, an artist who kept the idea of the concept album alive during the '90s, turns out to have a greater impact as a singles artist, as the 17-track hits compilation Lest We Forget: The Best of Marilyn Manson illustrates. While each of his post-Portrait of an American Family LPs were designed to be heard as a whole, their singles unfailingly distilled the attitude and ideas behind the individual albums to their catchy core. Yes, catchy -- at his best, Marilyn Manson had a knack for a heavy, glammy hook, the kind that's hard to get out of your head, no matter how hard you try. Not every single had a great hook -- "Tourniquet" is...

It's rather ironic that Marilyn Manson, an artist who kept the idea of the concept album alive during the '90s, turns out to have a greater impact as a singles artist, as the 17-track hits compilation Lest We Forget: The Best of Marilyn Manson illustrates. While each of his post-Portrait of an American Family LPs were designed to be heard as a whole, their singles unfailingly distilled the attitude and ideas behind the individual albums to their catchy core. Yes, catchy -- at his best, Marilyn Manson had a knack for a heavy, glammy hook, the kind that's hard to get out of your head, no matter how hard you try. Not every single had a great hook -- "Tourniquet" is a moody dirge, indicative of what awaits a listener on the album tracks -- but the best of them did, whether it was "Lunchbox" from the debut, the delirious "The Beautiful People," the glam-stomp of "The Dope Show," or the Faith No More homage "mOBSCENE." All these are here, but Lest We Forget doesn't have all the hits -- charting singles "I Don't Like the Drugs But the Drugs Like Me" and "Rock Is Dead" are conspicuously missing, as are video hits like "Dope Hat," "Man That You Fear," and "Coma White." These omissions are curious, considering that album tracks and covers are used as substitutions. Nevertheless, it has enough of the hits to make this worthwhile for the casual fans, as well as those listeners who never wanted to admit that these late-'90s alt-rock radio staples were guilty pleasures. [Lest We Forget was also released as a limited-edition set, featuring a bonus DVD containing all the music videos Manson released during the '90s.]
Rolling Stone - Richard Abowitz
1/2 A fitting tombstone to Manson's moment in the mainstream.

    Awesome CD

    My friends even like this CD, and they didn't like any sort of music like this, but now they just love this sorta music. Overall it's just a great CD. I wasn't disappointed when I bought and I know you won't be either.

    i wish i could forget.

    this track list is very disappointing. first and foremost, manson's career could have been summed up much better than this. i was surprised to see "the reflecting god" on this, but other than that, it's all cheesy a-sides that i'm just sick of. if i never heard 90% of these tracks again, i wouldn't complain. and this is coming from someone who loves Portrait of an American Family to Mechanical Animals. do yourself a favor, go buy the studio albums. and burn this one.
