Marilyn Manson - "The Lowdown" DVD+CD

There's quite a story behind Brian Warner (aka Marilyn Manson)'s rise from Florida notoriety to international stardom as the Satanic boogeyman of conservative America. This circa-2007 set of English-made unauthorized documentary discs does an amicable job illustrating the early days of Manson's career, as well as his later period and metamorphosis into glam and extreme metal. 

The DVD is the usual Chrome Dreams collection of photos, film clips, and interviews (with past band members, friends, and critics). It's a well-done look at the band's fledgling days and his later success under the wings of Trent Reznor. 

The CD is simply a collection of radio and TV interviews, of varying degrees of quality, but still a worthwhile addition to any Manson fan's collection. Enjoyable, even with its dubious origin. (Chrome Dreams)
