  • Before “Antichrist Superstar” made Marilyn Manson a household name, this 1994 major label debut album was the beginning of he and his band invading mainstream America. After shortening the name of the band from Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids to just Marilyn Manson, they signed with Interscope Records and Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor produced this brilliant album; which showcases the social and moral decay of average Amercian family life. Song like “Organ Grinder”, “Cake & Sodomy”, “Dogma”, “Get Your Gunn”, “Sweet Tooth”, “My Monkey”, “Misery Machine”, and the chilling “Lunchbox” are all thought provoking songs that really do make the listener think. Forget “Antichrist Superstar”, “Mechanical Animals”, and “Holy Wood”, if there is one Marilyn Manson album to get, make it “Portrait of An American Family”, and you will hear that the reason he is the man so many die hard Christian fanatics love to hate, is because he could be right about what he is saying.
