HUGE Alice Cooper fan, LOVE WTMN ('Cold Ethyl' has some SICK guitar work) grew up in that shit. My faves are the early stuff - Pretties For You, Love It to Death, Killer, and Billion Dollar Babies - Dennis Dunaway = SICK freaking bassist.
As for Manson, I'm down with The New Shit, (s)Ain't, and mObscene from GAoG, but I mean, Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals are so much more realized and more epic, and to me, it seems that those two albums have a depth that truly regards them as 'classic', wouldn't you agree??
Just found it odd that you would pick that particular one; I think that Antichrist Superstar was the apex of that whole industrial/goth-metal thing. And Mechanical Animals is like MM's 'Tusk' or 'Tunnel Of Love', insofar as they couldn't do their biggest record over; it had to be completely different. And that one, MA, was genius.
I just picked up Mechanical Animals on vinyl - 2 discs, one is 'Alpha' and the other 'Omēga', with the original tracklisting. My turntable LOVES it, haha!!
