iTunes Review

Marilyn Manson had mastered the art of shock rock with Antichrist Superstar when he decided to extend his musical reach with the glam rock strokes of Mechanical Animals. However, his audience didn’t respond as emphatically to such considered maturations and Manson quickly returned to the guttural and instinctive abrasion of his industrial rock roots with Holy Wood, a loose concept album about a world caught in the post-Columbine climate. The “shocking” imagery feels a bit gratuitous in spots, since the tunes underlying “The Fight Song,” “Disposable Teens,” “Burning Flag,” and “Born Again” are strong and forceful enough on their own not to require any extra fuel for the fire. But this is Marilyn Manson we’re speaking of and it’s part of the band’s DNA to find ways to keep the controversy on the front page. As the years pass, however, it’s the riffs and swaggering military rhythms that remain long after the initial surprises have played themselves out. 

Customer Reviews

Antichrist Superstar + Mechanical Animals = Holy Wood

What do you get when you take the harsh lyrics and guitar riffs of Antichrist Superstar, the great songwriting of Mechanical Animals, put them in a blender, and mix them? The result is Holy Wood. This was released in 2000 and, unfortunately, is considered a flop. It debuted at #19 on the charts and didn't go gold until two years after its original release date (it still hasn't reached platinum status). Reason? This was the year where Eminem and rap were coming onto the scene, and everyone basically forgot about Marilyn Manson. But that doesn't mean this isn't a great album. It's 19 songs of good ol' fashion Manson at his best. Favorite songs on here are The Fight Song, Target Audience, Lamb of God, The Nobodies, Coma Black and Valentine's Day. Guys, help this album get the platinum certification it deserves, buy it! You won't be disappointed.

Marilyn Manson is brilliant

to be able to blend such rythmic melodies and such creative lyrics to create Holy Wood,Marilyn Manson had to really think about what kind of reaction he wanted to gain from the fans and critics.With its blatantly blastphemous cover art,he gained attention from everyone by the cover alone.and the albums first single The Fight Song,displayed Mr.Manson's genius and marketing skills.this album also allowed Mr.Manson to regain some fans that he lost when Mechanical Animals was realeased with its pop sound which was a big let down to his metal fans after experiencing Antichrist Superstar.In summation,this may be his greatest album to be released yet.

Marilyn Manson, the self-proclaimed "Antichrist Superstar," became a mainstream antihero, much to the chagrin of conservative politicians and concerned parents. His vision of dark, arty, industrial metal pushed many of his singles -- including "The Dope Show," "The Beautiful People," and a cover of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" -- into the upper reaches of the modern rock charts during the late '90s and early 2000s. Born Brian Warner, Manson was raised in Canton, Ohio. At the age...
