Product Description

Product Description

Exclusive UK only pressing includes one of the Japanese bonus tracks, 'The Nobodies (Acoustic Version)'. This is the uncensored version. Standard jewelcase housed in a slipcase. 2000 release.


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

Four years ago, an artist by the name of Marylin Manson, who at that point in his career had built a large fanbase but was still somewhat in the underground after two albums, released an album that not only made him a Superstar, but an album so incredibly controversial that it immediatly rocketed him to living-legend status. Two years later, he almost totally changed his image for the 80s glam-styled Mechanical Animals which turned a lot of casual fans away because of its softer, mellower, slower sound and put Manson on the receiving end of accusations of "selling out" Personally, I love all the albums, and, believe it or not, Mechanical Animals was my favorite...but each to their own. Anyway, while he touring for Mechanical Animals, the world was shocked by the Columbine massacre...Manson's first thought upon hearing about it was "I'm going to get blamed for this." Sure enough...he was. Not only was it a stupid thing to begin with, it was made even more crackheaded when the accusations continued to rain down even after it was revealed that the young terrorists didn't even like his music. Frustrated, Manson went into seclusion for months...and this album is the result. Bringing Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals together in sound, this album is simply awesome...fans of Manson old and new (as cliched as that is...) should by this album right away. The ONLY complaint I have about it is that many of the songs are a litte too short...but it's still a VERY worthy buy. And for all those hypocritical religious fanatics who condemn the man, go read his lyrics so you at least know what you're talking about...it makes one look incredibly STUPID to condemn something you haven't even tried to find out about about...any way, hope this helped...enjoy the album!!!

Marilyn Manson's agenda requires the type of act he puts on. Over the top, self-deprecating, endlessly critical and thriving on media attention and shock-value spurred public disgust, the leader of this endlessly entertaining circus of a rock band has been manipulating his position as a public figure to his advantage since first appearing on MTV. Between then and now he's rallied a loyal following of young cynics, nihilists, head-bangers, ex-goths, and intellectuals. Yes, intellectuals. At the very least open-minded and curious fans with a great enough feeling of loss to question the values of our current societal mindset. Manson actually makes for a much better cultural and societal critic than Rage Against the Machine, Ian Mackaye, and System of a Down could ever hope to be. Instead of dwelling on incidental overt political disagreements he goes right to the source of what he believes to be a disease that progresses into further depths with each new year. He's kind of a modern, pop-culture for German culture musically inclined and very angry Friederich Nietzsche (never will I apologize for that comparison.) Many would argue that his music, beliefs, and behavior are representative of a decline in morality and a plague wiping out values, but this is merely a calculated reaction to a personal offense. What Manson seeks to expose in all their unflinching psychoses are the values that nearly every person unwittingly attaches themselves to in accepting and working with this society.
This album attacks the values that have come to be his opponents with true wit and atmospheric finesse. It seems to be the third in a sequence that includes "Antichrist Superstar" and "Mechanical Animals".

I think that Marilyn Manson's musical career is going downhill. "Holy Wood," needless to say, could have been better. The songs on this album tend to lack originality and creativity, and most of them sound a lot alike. In addition to the music being slightly repetitive, God is mentioned in almost every single song on this album. I think there are only two or three songs, if even that many, which don't mention religion in them.
This CD drones on an on, and when I first listened to it, I skipped half of the songs because they were so boring. The only songs I really like on this album are "The Love Song," "The Fight Song," and "Lamb of God." There's also "Disposable Teens," however, this is basically just a remake of "The Beautiful People" from his earlier album, "Antichrist Superstar." Other than that, there really isn't much to listen to on "Holy Wood." It's a boring, long album and the lyrics seem to repeat themselves over and over. I would recommend buying one of his earlier releases before this one, but if you do want to buy "Holy Wood," try to find it used.

Many musicians seem to reach a peak album and then slowly fade away with each new album they put out. I thought Mansons' peak was with Antichrist Superstar, the story of his life going from slithering hateful worm to a great angel of hate called the Antichrist. Anyone who has that cd knows how hard and meaningful it is. Then came Mechanical Animals and i was really disappointed. While I liked some of the music it was entirely too pop-like and electronic for me. I saddly thought we were watching our Antichrist die. But with Holy Wood he created a story that outcompetes Antichrist Superstar. 19 songs showing the story of Adams life: the new human that appears at the end of the world. His music is everything as much as Superstar. It is very hard punctuated by slow despairing songs; a combo that fills the listener with happiness for the return of Manson and a hate and despair so great that it overshadows his previous albums. I haven't encountered one song that i havent liked. They are all really listenable and catchy without coming out like something from Pantera or other metal bands. If you are a Manson fan then this is a must buy. Not intended for the christian or the faint of heart.
