Biography

The tumultuous relationship Marilyn Manson has cultivated with the public through his genre-defying music and anti-status quo message of thinking for oneself has resulted in sold-out tours, protests, legal battles, adoration, hate, more than 50 million records sales, award-winning distilled spirits, several Grammy nominations and, most importantly, a long list of some of the most enduring and ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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 Marilyn Manson's Holy Wood is the band at it's best November 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Manson has evoluted since their mainstream debut Portrait Of An American Family, produced by Nine Inch Nails mastermind, Trent Reznor. Since then, we've seen him transforming himself into the american-hated Antichrist Superstar, the beautiful-disgusting alien from Mechanical Animals, and the cynical rock star Omega from that album too. Now, Manson takes his act even further, and blends his two past albums with a new edge that will take 4 or 5 listenings to grow on you and fully expand its petals in your brain. Holy Wood is one depressing and violent take on today's stupid death worshipping through TV and the media in general. Those bozos who picked on the band and on different movies, blaming them for the Columbine massacre, are the same hypocrits that sell you prefabricated Talk Shows, sex driven commercials, and greedy religion; all in one beautiful package that pretendas to pass as morality. Manson shows no mercy to them, speaking about Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold (The Nobodies), Kennedy and John Lenons (In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death), and seducing controversy and danger with no fear (The Death Song). Holy Wood sounds different from ACS and MA, but at the same time it owes its sound to them very strongly. This is not an album which will pass without notice, this is a hammer-in-the-head statement about our dumbness. We can live happily with our families or whatever, but we can be shot in the street by some idiot who doesn't like our skin color our our ideas, just because the whole media culture has posted standards for race, beauty, wealth and all those unnecesary subjects. Buy Holy Wood, watch Fight Club, and you'll get close to the whole idea. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars More complex then most people think September 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Manson's 4th full length album is misunderstood by some as being the sellout mark. This is not true. He hasn't sold out. If you haven't noticed, every Marilyn Manson album is different. Holy Wood is a hybrid of Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals. The result is different and not a rehash. Manson returns to his dark industrial roots with emotion, creativity, artwork, a story and most importantly it makes a point. It makes several of them as a matter of fact. A large portion revolves around America's obsession with guns, violence, JFK, the Beatles, the Columbine Massacre, God and the media. Some of these things Manson has already gone over but here he goes into more detail. You actually may not understand Holy wood at first if you aren't too knowledgeable about the JFK and John Lennon assassinations. Ex: King Kill 33 (a song name) is actually the name of an essay about the JFK assassination. The story revolves around a person Marilyn Manson created who is simply named Adam Kadmon. I could go into all the very deep meanings of every song, but that would take forever and I'm only allowed 1000 words. So instead, I will cover each event/song in the story. I will also cover some of the larger meanings behind some of the songs. Manson had clearly worked his really hard for this record. It contains 19 songs (not including the B-sides on the singles) and a lot of beautiful artwork. And even though Holy Wood is the final chapter in the trilogy, it is actually the first as it is completed in reverse. Antichrist Superstar had 3 Parts and Mechanical Animals had two different views (Alpha and Omega). Holy Wood however, has 4 parts.

The story goes that Holy Wood is this mystical place which is ruled by the rich, beautiful celebrities, and their money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most complete album to date January 3, 2001
By Nick
Format:Audio CD
A band you either love or loathe, Manson never stray far from their blueprint - the deeply cynical lyrics of the band leader Marilyn Manson, the slow dirge type songs and the high energy two-fingered salute rock songs to mainstream America. Combining the metallic edge of Antichrist Superstar with the Glam-inspired Mechanical Animals has resulted in Holywood, the most complete musical statement the band have made in their highly controversial career to date. The killer one-two of The Love Song and The Fight Song are the standout moments on this very long album.
The Fight Song sounds like Blur's Song Two put through the industrial blender to create a Stooges-sounding energy rush. First single Disposable Teens is basically The Beautiful People revisited but still is one of Manson's strongest work. President Dead has an amazing chorus that marks it as one of the most immediate tracks on first listen. Delve deeper and you will find the sequel to 1998s Coma White, titled here funnily enough as Coma Black. If you look at this from a cynic's point of view, a band running out of ideas and from a fan's viewpoint, taking one of Mechanical Animal's finest moments to create a more than worthy follow-up. Burning Flag sounds to similar to Ministry's earlier recordings for comfort but still remains Holywood's most angry track.
The Nobodies written in the aftermath of the Columbine massacres is an intent statement of American youth of the 21st century. Early editions of the CD feature an acoustic version of The Nobodies, which sounds like it was recorded live in the studio. The one track that ruins the flow of the album is Crucifiction In Space but that becomes decent after a while. Every track is worthy of a mention, from A Place In The Dirt anthem qualities to King Kill's industrial weirdness.

not as good as Anti-Christ Superstar, but it's still another creative anti-system Manson album. It's nice to have alternative music like this for independent thinkers.
