"this ep is bit strange. the 1st two songs are album versions of misery machine and get your gunn(named for dr david gunn, the doctor killed by right to lifers during an abortion protest) so if you have Portrait of an american family, then you have half this album but the last two songs are weird spaced out trips full of music to bend your mind and really turn your self upside down. i really cannot explain the music here. it is really keyboard influenced madness which i like but it is not for everyone. something different."
Get Your Gunn...just not this one...

"Just get Portrait instead. This Single is quite poor and Manson has released better. Get Your Gunn and Misery Machine are featured on Portrait. There's no difference here. (Except the 10 minutes of phone ringing is removed from Misery Machine) The Only stuff worth it is the Get Your Gunn Remix. Which is pretty good, but there is better. And as for Revelation #9: I ask myself What the!?! It's 12:55 minutes long!!!! And it isn't a real song. It's just several audio bits thrown together. Most of the time, they overlap each other. Some are interesting, but I would never listen to it the whole way through. Although around the 10 minute mark, Manson starts singing part of Man That You Fear. I guess it's some sort of a demo/outro that they didn't use and instead replaced it with the Phone on Portrait. If you really want it, download it off of iTunes or something. They should have Put Mother Inferior got her Gunn on Smells like Children. Spend your $ on a better Manson single instead.
As time has gone on I have discovered more information about Revelation #9. In order to fully understand its purpose and meaning, you have to research it a little bit. At the end of the Beatles' White Album, there is a song called Revolution 9, which is weird audio samples thrown together (at 8:22 minutes) and is disturbing for Beetles music. Charles Manson, felt that the Beatles were trying to contact him, and that Revolution 9 was a reference to Revelation 9 from the Bible. (Look it up, it's crazy) He felt the Beatles were trying to communicate to him through music, thus explaining his brief career in music (which sounds something like Willy Nelson), Charles thought that there was going to be a civil war between the races and that in the end, God and the Beatles were going to make him king. With that in mind, it makes Revelation #9 a whole lot more sense. But it still doesn't jump up my rating in terms of rotation in my CD player. Hoped this update helped."

"This was the the original bands first single as a signed act, which came out to promote Portrait Of An American Family (followed by Lunch Box and the Smells Like Children EP). As stated by many people before me, the first two tracks are straight off of the album. The remix of Get Your Gunn isn't essential but it's pretty damn neat--- if you are a big fan, I recommend this mix primarily because it deconstructs the song. In the process of doing so, it reveals a lot of the samples buried deep in the mix which are nearly inaudible on the album version. I still prefer the original mix, but this kind of gives you an insight into how much work actually went into texturing the album and how little sounds make a big impact. It was also because of this mix that I realized that the "GOD DAMN" sampled into the chorus actually comes from "The Pusher" by Steppenwolf.
As for "Revalation #9", it is totally unessential. MM used to use this as introduction mood music when they were touring for "Portrait". The shows generally started with this (probably because it was long enough to allow the stage to be properly set up) and then it would seque into "Wrapped In Plastic". While it's not worth buying on it's own (and would possibly have been better off as a hidden track on the album), it was probably included here as a sort of tour souveneir. Fans may note that a conversation heard in the background was later used as a track of it's own on "Smells Like Children" (May Cause Discoloration...) Overall, good remix of Get Your Gunn aside, you would be much better off with the album unless you are a die-hard collector."
