It's a very spooky album, and I always feel strange listening to it.

Objectively though, it is very good. Manson had a nice voice and some interesting songs.
Look At Your Game Girl is the best song in here. Its suits his voice perfectly, and has a really interesting sentimental quality to it.

I'd imagine a copy of this on vinyl would be worth something nowadays, since few copies were ever printed. It would be a pretty strange addition to any collection.


Going on numbers, its a 4/5. If you can get past the fact its Manson the killer and look at it as just the work of a regular artist, its a good piece of work.

A great album, a nice mix of folk, beatnik, hippie freakout and lo-fi. A well produced version of Look At Your Game Girl could have been a fairly big hit methinks. With his music, Manson was somehow completely removed from his time while also being very much of his time. Just close your eyes and imagine hearing this out in the desert on a peyote high. I would LOVE to hear the Desper engineered stuff from around the same time.

I'd rather be forced to sleep with Caitlyn Jenner then ever have to listen to NPP again.

It's actually a pretty good record - the guy did have musical ability.

I do have to try quite hard not to think of a pregnant Sharon Tate, surrounded by dead and dying friends, begging Manson's clan to spare the life of her unborn baby. That tends to put something of a downer on things...
