The Last Tour on Earth [Explicit Lyrics]

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
God of hellfire, king of pain, decadent darling of darksiders the world over, Marilyn Manson can be a goth-glam goofball or the most controversial crotch-rocker on earth. But he's best when he's both, as on this tumultuous live gore fest. Recorded during the midwestern leg of his Rock Is Dead tour, these scabrous performances find Marilyn slobbering his way through the heartland like a true hedonistic beast -- ripping into "Rock Is Dead," "The Beautiful People," "Antichrist Superstar," and "The Dope Show" as if he's trying to muss every blue-hair from Fargo to Fort Worth. A bit in Cedar Rapids, Michigan, where he baits intruding cops and Bible thumpers with a joyfully ...

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
God of hellfire, king of pain, decadent darling of darksiders the world over, Marilyn Manson can be a goth-glam goofball or the most controversial crotch-rocker on earth. But he's best when he's both, as on this tumultuous live gore fest. Recorded during the midwestern leg of his Rock Is Dead tour, these scabrous performances find Marilyn slobbering his way through the heartland like a true hedonistic beast -- ripping into "Rock Is Dead," "The Beautiful People," "Antichrist Superstar," and "The Dope Show" as if he's trying to muss every blue-hair from Fargo to Fort Worth. A bit in Cedar Rapids, Michigan, where he baits intruding cops and Bible thumpers with a joyfully sarcastic "Hallelujah, motherfucker!" captures the spirit of the moment pretty succinctly. But detractors may be surprised to see that Manson can rock as well as shock. He and his booming backing band slam home their numbers in fine Frankensteinian fashion, replacing the rather tinny sound of MECHANICAL ANIMALS with a cutting metal edge that definitely gets the blood flowing. The most riveting moment here is Manson's lugubrious robo-metal rip through the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams," which segues quite nicely into the robo-punk mosh-fest Hell/Outro." A dope show indeed. Fans should note that the disc ends with a pummeling new cut, "Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes," also found on MTV's CELEBRITY DEATH MATCH disc.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The Last Tour on Earth, the live souvenir from the ill-fated Mechanical Animals tour, is an aural document of a primarily visual experience. Marilyn Manson's records are extremely well crafted, filled with revealing sonic details, but in concert he concentrates on spectacle, preferring dazzling visuals to new arrangements. That's not a bad thing -- Manson is an agent provocateur and his shows should be an overwhelming visual experience. There's no need for reinvented versions of "The Beautiful People" or "Irresponsible Hate Anthem," since they serve as the soundtrack for the sights. It's a good selection of Manson favorites performed by a tight band, although apart from rougher vocals and slightly more immediate sound, there are no true differences between the stage and studio versions of these songs. Based on the music, it's hard to tell that this is a live album, except for stray crowd noises and Manson's on-stage ramblings. It's fascinating to hear him act like a sober Jim Morrison, trying to get his audience to yell "motherf*cker" and winding up with an incoherent "maoohahfuer," or relating his spellbinding vision of a dreamworld, where the land is made of drugs, cops give Manson head, and God is spelled "D-R-U-G-S," especially since these rants are delivered, by name, to the Midwestern off-markets of Grand Rapids, MI, and Cedar Rapids, IA.

    Live Mayhem

    Say what you want about Marilyn Manson, but one thing that is undisputable is that he puts on a hell of a live performance. As far as live performance cd's go, it's usually just a bunch of singles grouped together, this is only half true on Manson's latest outing. He mixes singles like The Beautiful People and Lunchbox with lesser heard songs like The Last Day On Earth and The Reflecting God. Another very good thing about this album is we get to see how good of a guitarist John 5 is (he didn't play on Mechanical Animals, read the credits). Recorded very well, everything on this album is coherant to the slightest drum rattle to Manson's bone rattling screams. Among the best songs are Lunchbox, The Last Day On Earth (performed beautifully on acoustic guitar), and Antichrist Superstar (which is played at a level which will give you goose bumps). Overall, if you like Manson and you like live music, this is a shoe-in for your next purchase. If you don't like Manson and live music, get it anyway, you'll be suprised.
