Product Description

Product Description


The impact of Marilyn Manson's subversive musical agenda has waned, and what's left is a provocative, talented artist writing affecting, powerful, and yes, controversial songs. Although Holy Wood is the third title of a trilogy that began with 1996's Antichrist Superstar, the album stands on its own. Rife with references to the Beatles and the Kennedys, and full of pop-culture barbs, Holy Wood is a musically diverse and powerful statement. The memorable sing-along "Disposable Teens" boasts the same kind of staccato, Teutonic, first-thrusting power introduced with "Beautiful People," while "Fight Song" is the Sex Pistols meets Blur by way of Nirvana. While a futuristic, nihilistic tint pervades Manson's work, passion is also prevalent, notably in the spooky acoustic number "A Place in the Dirt" and the brutal "Death Song." Like Marilyn Manson the man, Holy Wood is intelligent, dynamic, and multifaceted, with myriad charms that are evident to the tuned-in listener. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of them all May 30 2004
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Manson fan, and I decided to give this album five stars because listen to and enjoy it every day. It's got a lot of different songs, from hardcore to soft to a little inbetween, and it's fun to mix them up on the CD burner until you get the desired order. Soft at first, then inbetween and then hard. All the hard songs are good, and the soft ones are unique in that at the end of them a lot of them have some good screaming. It's good the way he did that. A good example of such a song would be "The Fall of Adam", where he starts soft and then starts screaming into a weird microphone or something which someone referred to as a megaphone. I just wish I could see him perform that at a concert. I would definitely have my fist in the air and I would be shouting along with him. The hardcore songs are good. The lyrics of all the songs are very deep and hard to interpret, which is good if while listening to this music you want to take your mind off of something else. That, along with the quality hardcore music makes this CD a definite must-buy. The only thing that might irritate the listener is the order of the tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got Love Songs In My Head... April 28 2004
By Kit
Format:Audio CD
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.

The biggest note of contest in this album that I have is the prescence of so many filler tracks that should have been delegated to b-side status WAY back during the Death Valley sessions. Other then that, and the fact that Blur, Ozzy and NIN get ripped off in keen detail, this is MM's second best album, and it outdistances the far inferior "Antichrist Superstar"(Trent Reznor singlehandedly provided the shine in that one's spit)and "The Golden Age of Grotesque".
There are a few impressive moments of dazzling showmanship, when the musical agenda becomes clearly defined with the capable backbone of good musical craftsmanship to brace it. Songs like "Born Again", "President Dead", "Coma Black" and the title track showcase this. But, alas, it quickly becomes fatigued by its overextended welcome, and by the numerous anti-climatic moments that retard its objective. It's still, I think, far more interesting then the likes of Korn and Mudvayne(...) and the dynamics of polished harmony, strong melodies, and good production values(...) cement it as a good, 3 star release. I'd reccomend it. The blasphemy lingers, a little, and that distances my full on acceptance of it as important social commentary. I personally don't see the value of art when it trashes God, the same why I don't dig the irresponsible and low IQ banter of rap(most rap, anyway), but more then not, the narrative deals with the violence of an alienated heart, trying to find its way across the dark landscape of the troubled soul(in this case, HolyWood). All in all, not bad and not too shabby. Manson's detractors(myself included)were a little more then impressed when this disc came along, as it reveals more songwriting strength one does not normally associate with the MM camp. Here's to hoping that they make a future disc that not only reinvents itself, but betters this one. Untill then, this stands as their second finest to date.Buy it here at Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Some of us were really born to die..." March 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was my first Manson CD and was the first Manson i had ever really listened to period. The only things i had ever heard about Manson were bad things, like he was just some angry shock rocker who wrote about things he hated. But that was a load of crap, i realized after listening to this. This is yet another good lyrical masterpiece, and Manson uses his intelligent and insightfull view to tackle many subjects such as religious hypocricy, judgemental America, fame, and the many untold truths of our time. Actually pick up and read some of the lyrics and you cannot honestly say that it doesnt have any deep meaning. Truely Manson is a spokesman for the masses. His music has changed me so much and inspired me as well, and im sure that he can do the same to you.
For some reason, this album sounds so much more like classic heavy rock to me, unlike the glaim rocker 'Mechanical Animals' or the industrial sludge of 'AntiChrist Superstar.' The album starts with the humming lure of GodeatGod, which introduces you to the Kennedy Assisnation that makes its way as a prominent subject throughout the rest of the CD. And then you listen your way through "the Love Song", an ironic song showing america's obsession with guns and how they all love to hate. Then Holy Wood's ingles 'The Fight Song' and 'Disposable Teens' which makes an unforgettable statement. My Favorie songs of this album are the wierdest ones, 'Target Audience' and 'In the shadow of the Valley of Death.' I was drawn to their uniqueness seeing as how they don't sound like they belong on here, but yet they belong perfectly. But then agian, its hard to catagorize music like Mansons, and I'm glad to say that this is his most diverse album yet, which makes it my favorite.
