Product Description


There's no question that Marilyn Manson's 1995 album Antichrist Superstar was a great-sounding record. It brooded, ripped, and clattered in all the right places, mixing industrial beats and samples with roaring heavy-metal riffs, echoing Goth keys, and the occasional tuneful pop vocal. But for all the sonic appeal, some of the song-writing wasn't too strong. No such problem on Manson's new record, Mechanical Animals, which forsakes some of the band's former grind in favour of dynamic glam rhythms and good old-fashioned melody. When the band tones down, as on the largely acoustic "Speed of Pain" and "Fundamentally Loathsome", Manson even sounds like a candidate for an Unplugged session. Most often, however, as on "Rock Is Dead", "User Friendly", and "The Dope Show", Mechanical Animals is a brash, decadent, and glittery display of self-indulgent hooks and melodramatic vocals that sounds like Aladdin Sane-era David Bowie and T. Rex at their most boisterous crossed with the more modern sounds of today's industrial nation. --Jon Wiederhorn

5.0 out of 5 stars Manson beat Bowie at his own genre! Dec 13 2003
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
This album is musically brilliant! Gary Glitter/David Bowie esque glamrock, with a slight electrosynth tinge.... ITS GOOD!
However, it is in the storyline where we find the brilliance on the record. Manson plays two characters in this, these being the "Marilyn" or good side, called Alpha, and the "Manson" or dark side, called Omega. Even though the caracters are the same person, they represent opposite sides of the personality, with Alpha being naieve, hopeful and somewhat charitable, whilst Omega is a cynical, bitter manic-depressive addicted to every drug in California.
As for the songs....
1. Great Big White World: Genuinely goregous glam track, sung by Alpha, as he is horrified by the conformity of our world.
2. The Dope Show: Musically brilliant, this lets us in on Omega's cynicism, and the emptiness of his fame.
3. Mechanical Animals: Alpha dealing with the mechanical nature of this "Bride".
4: Rock Is Dead: Industrio/Glam mixture, Omega bitching over the agonisingly ignorant criticism he recieves for being controversial. Damn catchy too.
5. Dissassociative: Omega overdoses on drugs (again), obstensibly for his depression, and reverts to Alpha, seeing the world as a "Dead Astronaut". Very Bowie, and very good.
6. Speed of Pain: Omega, now on a come down, vents his angst, and it is here where we first see his despiar.
7: Posthuman: Alpha, infuriated at the superficiality of our world and our religion, reminds us of the Antichrist Superstar and tells us to wake up to our god being a Statistic.
8: I want to dissapear: Omega, full of anger and frustration, blasts us in a punk sneer about how shallow he has become thanks to our screwed up society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guilty pleasure Oct. 14 2001
Format:Audio CD
Let me tell you first, this is not a fan of MM. I only really liked this release, and it shows a lot of new-wave influence. That's just one thing good about it. They seem to be much more expirimential with this release, and there are many hooks to this album. Even if you hate Manson, the lead singer, this is actually tolerable. I really wish I couldn't say this, but there is something from them I could stand (unlike the first two albums) and doesn't all sound the same (unlike ACS or Holy Wood). Actually, I'd pick this over Drowning Pool any day. "New Model no. 15" is a better song. "Last day on earth" isn't really what you will ever hear from them again, so you might as well just get this one

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disapointing Oct. 10 2001
Format:Audio CD
...I bought this expecting a hardcore, ..., vulgar, metal album, instead I got this. Post Human, Mechanical Animals, Dope Show, and User Friendly are OKAY. His other albums are great, but his one doesn't fill the void...

Marilyn Manson. Freaky, ain't he? He's a surprsingly intelligent individual who can actually write some quite brilliant work (even if "The Dope Show" is the only proof of that). Mechanical Animals, his latest, is actually a lot easier to swallow than his past albums. It's a bit more advanced, a bit more earthy. There's some anti-shallow and anti-celebrity and anti-drug anthems spread wide over this eccletic album. It's inventive, but poorly performed. Put the lyrics aside on many songs and you'd be surprised it was Marilyn at all. It's all in the delivery. Exceptions are "Rock is Dead" and "New Model No. 5", which are terrible no matter how it's performed, but his "Mechanical Animals" and "Coma White" are actually pretty okay. It's not enough. This guy could be quoting Shakespeare but he reverts to trademark hissing and screaming

1.0 out of 5 stars Typical Manson slowed to the speed of morphine Nov. 30 1998
Format:Audio CD
Pardon me, but why would anyone consider buying an album from an artist known to be poor at hard rock (during a period he wanted to be goth rock), attempting to play anything in the oh-so poppy "alternative" field? Alternative itself is an un-realized disgrace doing nothing but helping the good music emerging from the indie scene. Manson's bass is bad, his guitars are bad, his drums are bad, his white noise is mediocre, and his voice is wretched in a bad way. This album lacks the beauty necessary to be melodic (if musical) and lacks the riffs and rage necessary to be hard rock. It has serious birth defects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mansons best album. June 27 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was a change of pace for Marilyn Manson after the heavy metal goth of Smells Like Children and Antichrist Superstar.And its also in my opinion his greatest work.Well actually the band's greatest work because hed be nowhere without John 5,Madonna Wayne Gacy,Ginger Fish and especially Twiggy Ramirez.I think Marilyn's best vocal work is on here and to me the riffs have never been better than on this album.He toned the lyrical content down on most of the songs but some are still pretty dark and disturbing material.I think this is a must have for anyone who likes a combination of hard rock and glam.
