Written in the house where the Rolling Stones lived during the making of Let It Bleed, and recorded at the home of the late magician Harry Houdini, Holy Wood is Manson at the top of his game. "All of us played different instruments during the making of this record," explains the singer. "It's kind of like our White Album. If you listened to three songs, it wouldn't be emblematic of the whole record." "Disposable Teens" is the crunchy cousin of "Beautiful People," "The Fight Song" has an acoustic-guitar part reminiscent of Blur's only U.S. hit, "Song #2," and "Burning Flag" would sound great while driving tanks through Gore and Bush's respective election-night headquarters. "This record is specifically designed for use while being beaten upon or inspiring you to beat upon someone," says Manson. "I'm not saying you should do that--I wanted to beat myself to death after listening to the entire record. If you don't want to hurt anybody after listening to the entire record, I think you can take it back for a refund."

Muze PNote From the outset, as the slowly churning guitar riffs of "Godeatgod" pound their way into your ear, it's clear that Marilyn Manson plans to make few deviations from its previously established industrial rock ways on HOLY WOOD. This is an admirable display of canniness on the band's part, as the fruits of playing to their strengths are apparent throughout the album.
Muze PNote The ironically titled "The Love Song" features a savagely pounding chorus and screamed expletives, while "The Fight Song" makes no attempt to hide its self-referential qualities, which concern being "a big rock star, celebrated victim of your fame." Despite its ominous title, "In the Shadow of the Valley of Death" offers some momentary solace amid HOLY WOOD's sonic maelstrom, by way of a melodic, softly sung refrain (along the way, it also happens to rescue the classic fuzz bass sound from the dustbin of '60s psychedelia). The closing track "Count to Six (The Vacuum of Infinite Space Encompassing)" drops the metallic guitars and thrashing drums in favor of gothic-sounding keyboards and creepily intoned vocals, making for a low-key but nevertheless unsettling brew that's equally reminiscent of Bauhaus and Manson mentor Trent Reznor.

Professional Reviews

Q (12/00, p.128)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...Brutal gothrock...deadly and addictive....suggesting a shock-rock protagonist who finally has something to say."

CMJ (11/13/00, p.4)
- "...It's Manson's answer to his adversaries, sonically uniting the garish glam rock of MECHANICAL ANIMALS with the industrial dissonance and controlled chaos of the band's earlier work..."

Melody Maker (11/14/00, p.50)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...Compelling....A pouting, teeth-baring, stranger-snogging tart of an album, a glorious, blistering cacophony, an explosive death-glam rampage. Marilyn is to T.Rex what jungle is to techno..."

NME (Magazine)
(12/30/00, p.79)
- Ranked #34 in NME's "Top 50 Albums Of The Year".

NME (Magazine)
(11/11/00, p.32)
- 8 out of 10 - "...Melds the glam-frocked space-rock of MECHANICAL ANIMALS with the industrial crunch of ANTICHRIST, he has hit upon something thrilling....brilliantly executed..."

Rolling Stone 8 of 10
You have to respect Manson for addressing real life issues with a theatrical verve and genuine vitriol that no other mainstream act can match.

NME 9 of 10
By far the best thing Manson has ever set his warped mind to, Holy Wood... ultimately inspires something far more potent than fear or hatred. Respect.

Billboard 9 of 10
...Manson proves again that he's one of the most skilled lyricists in rock today, wallowing in themes no other pop rock star would... The imp of the perverse is on full here as Manson, his rich voice, and his glammed-up cronies create another seductive disc that we're afraid to like. - Dylan P. Gadino
