The genre for Manson’s album is listed under: Contemporary folk,

Lie: The Love and Terror Cult is the debut studio album by convicted criminal 
and folk singer-songwriter Charles Manson. It was released on vinyl by Phil 
Kaufman, through a label called Awareness Records. After established record 
companies declined to become involved, Kaufman raised $3,000 and had
2,000 copies pressed. The money from album sales was used to help
finance his defense against murder charges.

Although not a commercial success, the album has received critical praise by
reviewers such as those in the All Music Guide, and it retains a following among
people interested in the Manson case, with multiple covers and samples made
by musicians from the album. Examples include artists like Guns N’ Roses and
Marilyn Manson
.

The album cover is a parody of the December 19, 1969 Life magazine cover,
which featured Manson. During a 1991 interview with radio talk show host Ron
Reagan Jr.
,Charles Manson stated that "That particular album was made off a
little old $7 tape recorder.
