Overview

Mechanical Animals [Explicit Version]

Antichrist Superstar performed its intended purpose -- it made Marilyn Manson internationally famous, a living realization of his fictional "antichrist superstar." He had gained the attention of not only rock fans, but the public at large; however, many critics bestowed their praise not on the former Brian Warner, but on Trent Reznor, Manson's mentor and producer. Surely angered by the attention being focused elsewhere, he decided to break from Reznor and industrial metal with his third album, Mechanical Animals. Taking his image and musical cues from Bowie, Warner reworked Marilyn Manson into a sleek, androgynous space alien named Omega, à la Ziggy Stardust, and constructed a glammy variation of his trademark goth metal. With pal Billy Corgan as an unofficial consultant and Soundgarden producer Michael Beinhorn manning the boards, Manson turns Mechanical Animals into a big, clean rock record -- the kind that stands in direct opposition to the dark, twisted industrial nightmares he painted with his first two albums. It can make for a welcome change of pace, since his glammed-up goth is more tuneful than his clattering industrial cacophony, but it lacks the cartoonish menace that distinguished his prior music.

This is without a doubt their best work yet. I really enjoy that quasi-70s-industrial feel to the music. The lyrics are amazing and the guitar riffs and chordal structures just blow my mind. The use of the organ is so 70s but so cool. I just hope that all of their further material will be at par with this fantastic record.

I've been a Manson Fan since I was 13, and by far this is one of his best Cds I have ever listened to. Manson's lyrical genius is present in every song on this album.

This is tied as my #1 favorite album(with Antichrist Superstar and Holywood). This album is pretty different from his other albums in some ways. It's just a fun album, moreso than his other 2 masterpieces, which have deepre messages but are not necessarily as fun. If you like punk rock and want to gradually explore Manson and metal, then this is a good place to start.

Marilyn Manson's music is more than just the shock-rock society views it to be. This CD has meaningful music, angry music, and funny music (Don't Like the Drugs). The music itself is memorable and wonderfully written.

This CD is so awsome. Words can't describe how great this cd is.The cd has a great story line if you don't know what I'm talking about then you should know. The first song "Great Big White World" starts off with the image of a spaceman floating in space dissconnected from the world and tring to put together images of his journey and the song is him mourning and wondering how the world has fallen apart. "We use love ourselves we used to love one another" and the cd goes on from there with hm having meetings from and elusive being he names Coma White.It is a great cd and its a message that needs to be heard felt.
