I love everything I've heard from MM but I don't have all his albums including Anti-Christ Superstar so I can't speak to that one. I've heard some of it. I mis spoke naming GAoG. I meant Holy Wood. That was the first Manson album I bought and I probably have some extra affinity to it for that reason... however I do completely love it. I like that it's more raw than a lot of his other stuff including Mechanical Animals. I like that one too I just prefer the more raw sound over the more produced. I think Eat Me Drink Me is fantastic too.
get Antichrist Superstar and Portrait of An American Family - easily the most 'raw' and 'industrial' of his entire catalog. If you like Holy Wood, you will LOVE Antichrist.
Also, I can send you mp3s of the Pre-Reznor mixes of Portait - probably the most raw Manson you'll ever hear. PM me your email.
Mechanical Animals might be my favorite; it has grown on me to the point where I consider it an 'essential' album. It's like a David Bowie/Thin White Duke for the new frontier or somesuchshit. It's ahead of its time, at least for me; I bought ot the day it came out and I'm just now starting to catch up to it.
