Description: Every parent's nightmare and every teenager's dream band, Marilyn Manson take no prisoners on their blistering and brutal Trent Reznor-produced debut. Aiming to shock and rock simultaneously, Portrait scores high marks in both arenas. Manson and his grand grimoire take Alice Cooper's tongue-in-cheek mix of glam and death rock to the ... (more)

Bolshevik Gary Listens To Marilyn Manson (12 music items)

"Manson's debut album in front of his old band. Here showcases raw anger in the form of Alternative Punk rock in a mix that was unknown at this point in the mid 90's (1994). Manson's lyrics are interesting and hard to ignore, while his band is a solid rhythm that pushes at the forefront behind him. Get Your Gunn clearly breaks down the answer as to why workplace and school shootings occur as he destroys the image of the American Dream. Cake and Sodomy is date rape at it's best, Dope Hat is a psy"

Best albums of 1994 (38 music items)

"NIN is to thank/blame for this one being so high on my list, and in fact for my buying it in the first place. In 1994, I saw both bands play together & found that Marilyn Manson was right up my alley...heavy, weird, theatrical, and impossible to ignore. I know every word on this album, including all the samples & the hidden answering machine message that closes it. It fostered an obsession with the group as I snatched up every interview I could & bought bootleg live albums in hopes of hearing mo"

"Album I know the best There are many albums I have every word and note and beat memorized in my head & etched across my heart. But I've spent so much time with Portrait that I even have the samples memorized, a fact that once scared a couple friends back in the late 90s when we road-tripped & listened to it. "

Best live shows I've seen (30 music items)

"Jan 13, 1995 (Friday the 13th) Marilyn Manson followed up their 1994 tour with NIN by headlining their own club tour which kicked off in Dallas with this show. The opener was a terrible local band who was heckled throughout their set. They were followed by Monster Voodoo Machine, an alternative metal band with great energy. MVM got the crowd moving and excited, and kept us entertained through their last song. As I mentioned before, Marilyn Manson's show was very anything-goes in those days, s"

I was a preteen metalhead (62 music items)

"The first time I saw NIN, this was the band that opened for them. Between NIN & Butthole Surfers I had already heard similar sounds, but what makes this album different is that it's the first album I bought due to an amazing live performance by a band I'd never heard before. Marilyn Manson's live show in those days was pure anarchy and theatrics, and it both scared me and excited me. This (plus the performances from Jim Rose Circus & NIN that night) started my addiction to concert-going, and fue"

Halloweenish Sounds (25 music items)

"Still the best Manson album ever recorded. See also Smells Like Children, which took these songs and remixed them into often creepier, weirder versions plus has a trio of great dark covers ("I Put a Spell on You", "Sweet Dreams", and "Rock n Roll...")."
