I found Holywood to be just as enjoyable as AntiChrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals, although I do feel that it lacks the masterful touches that both previous albums had. Perhaps it's because Holywood is an experimental mix of both concepts. Or perhaps Manson did this intentionally, seeing as the story behind the trilogy is that Holywood was supposed to be the amatuer, unpolished effort of Adam (although this disc IS quite polished...). In anycase, the disc is certainly worthy of being in any fan's collection, and while it may not be another AntiChrist Superstar or Mechanical Animals, it's still miles ahead of Portrait of an American Family, and that album was very good.
My favorite songs on the disc are "The Love Song", "Target Audience", "President Dead", "The Nobodies", "The Death Song", "Burning Flag", and "Coma Black". The rest are good, but I feel that those seven songs stand out from the rest, especially "Target Audience". "The Love Song" is a catchy tune about gun control, while "President Dead" points a finger at the government and the society it created. "The Nobodies" is Manson's response to the Columbine tragedy, and "Coma Black" makes a perfect companion to Mechanical Animal's "Coma White". "Burning Flag" sounds like it'd fit right in the AntiChrist Superstar era, with loud drums and heavy guitars. "The Death Song" is a train ride to Hell, and Manson mocks violence among adults, teens, and society as a whole.
