Marilyn Manson - The Last Tour on Earth (1999) Retail CD
When I saw Marilyn Manson in concert, I was not very impressed. Nevertheless, I picked this album up, expecting great things (it is Manson, after all!) But, unfortunately, these songs don't do much to persuade me about his live show, either.
"The Last Tour On Earth" was recorded in Cleveland (perhaps) and Grand Rapids, Michigan, when Manson was on tour in support of his then latest release, 1998's "Mechanical Animals." But Manson probably would have been better to wait a few years, until after "Holy Wood" was released, because then he could have played some tunes (i.e. "The Fight Song") whichmore… were sure to get the mosh-pit swirling. But, as it is, most of this disc isn't all that exhilarating or even entertaining. The songs range from un-hooky ("The Reflecting God") to flat ("Great Big White World") to forgettable ("Lunchbox") to unspectacular ("Sweet Dreams/Hell Outro") to, well, boring ("Get Your Gunn"). Even track twelve, "Irresponsible Hate Anthem," fails to stir up much excitement.
"The Last Tour On Earth" isn't a complete throw-away, however, as there are some bright spots. "Rock Is Dead" has explosive choruses, making it probably the most irresistibly catchy song on here, and "Antichrist Superstar," and "The Beautiful People" are both finely executed, though the latter sounds somewhat rushed.
Next, there are a few OK tracks. The very creepy and ominous introductory song, "Inauguration Of The Mechanical Christ," "The Dope Show" (which is worth mentioning just for the mid-song interlude where Manson sends "a greeting" to the police), and "The Last Day On Earth" are all decent, but far from great.
The last live song worth mentioning on here is "I Don't Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me)." This song is somewhat hooky, but it's utterly ruined by a ridiculously moronic and overly drawn-out intro where Manson tells the crowd (who cheer after every sentence) about a dream he had where drugs became God. He also informs us that, in his dream, the police pulled him over but didn't arrest him; instead they did something obscene to Manson (something which I'm sure Amazon won't let me post, here.)
The very last song, track fourteen, "Astonishing Panorama Of The Endtimes," is a pretty good song/b-side. Some hardcore fans may want to buy this album just to get this song.
With all that said, be careful what you buy. This C.D. is far from being great, but it isn't terrible, either. Thus, it's only recommended to hardcore fans. And for everybody else, "The Last Tour On Earth" serves a purpose; it reminds us that Marilyn Manson sounds awesome...in the studio.
