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 ...

Product Description

Product Description

MARILYN MANSON Mechanical Animals (1999 UK limited edition 14-track CD album including the singles The Dope Show I Dont Like The Drugs [But The Drugs Like Me] Rock Is Dead & Coma White housed in a blue-tinted jewel case with outerslipcase IND90273)

Amazon.co.uk

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

Very audacious. This is an album to provoke not only reactionary Christians but also goths who will dismiss anything that includes melody thus making them just as conformist as what they are rebelling against. What would have been the easy route would be Manson penning Antichrist Superstar (part 2) and watch the clash flow in from his army of copy cat spooky kids. Instead he offers an album that has deep thought and hugely insightful and cutting lyrics whilst being as superficial as to let shimmering funk take over in the studio.
The standout tracks are Great Big White World with it's pessimistic attack on conformity guided by compelling synths, The Dope Show - a glam-rock stomp that is very dancable and pokes fun at his thick detractors, I Want To Disappear which is pure nihilism but desperately wants something better and sympathises with a teenager dismissed as trash, and I Don't Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me), Manson is the master of cynicism and awe-inspringly blends gospel into goth-metal. Fantastic.
Weak tracks are Disaccociative and The Speed Of Pain which tend to drag on and try a bit too hard to be haunting.
This is an album well worth investigation for it's imagination, intelligence and f*** you insincerity whilst still affirming you.

Pure and undiluted, this album is Manson at his best. More greiving than 'Tourniquet', more sorrowful then 'Man that you fear', more full of regrets than 'Minute of decay', and in places angrier than anything from Portrait, this is a stunning musical attack by the master of music.
The basic premise is that of Omega, an alien visitor coming to earth with his greatest love (and also greatest hate) Coma White beside him. The album spirals upwards through the revalations he undergoes while on earth, I wont list them here because it's definnitely an experience everyone should have for themselves. And thats what this is, its more than an album, its an experience.
The album opens with the track 'Great big white world' and your jaw drops......Madonna Wayne Gracy is as much responsible for this album as Manson himself, his keyboard skills are enough to bring tears to your eyes. There is no other word possible than 'genius' for what he adds to this album. Notable songs are 'Mechanical Animals', 'Speed of pain' and 'Coma White'
But the best song on the album.....in fact the best song ever written by anyone ever (better than Emperor, better than Cradle, better than anyone) is 'The last day on earth' this song almost had me crying its so beautiful (yes I am male). The live version (available on the Last Tour On Earth album) is even better, adding aucoustic guitar and even more powerful vocals.
This is classic, Manson is a music God and always will remain so, buy this album right way up, buy it upside down, buy it while wearing full-gothic make up, or buy it dressed as a preist, whatever way suits you, just buy this album

After the ear-bashing of the superb Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals is a step down. Once again it tells the story of someone being twisted by American society, though this time it is the film industry and its drugs culture which come under fire. The story is started by reading a large block of writing at the start of the manual by placing the blue CD case over a yellow and green splurge, an intruiging and very Mansonish element. Marilyn Manson incorporates glam rock with its original heavy metal brilliantly, resulting in an album which anyone can enjoy, with high, songs, low songs, quiet songs and loud songs. A girl, Coma White, who adorns the front cover of the album, is the focus of the album. She is taken in by the beauty-filled drug culture of the film industry (Dope Show, New Model 15) used (Rock is Dead, Posthuman) Abused (User Friendly, Dont Like the Drugs) and left to rot (Fundametally Loathsome, Coma White). The songs are not in the chronological order of the story, the order is found in the booklet However this isnt an album you'll want to study, youll want to listen to it. The moshing tunes of Rock is Dead, Posthuman, I Want to Dissapear and New Model 15 are the best, whilst the Dope Show and User Friendly are glam rock with MMs trademark touch of cynism. Mechanical Animals stands alone as a brilliant piece of pure rock, whilst Dont Like the Drugs is experimentation taken to the extreme, with gospel singers adding an unusaul touch. The rest of the album is slow, melodic songs which blend excellently with the more upbeat ones. They include the stark Great Big White World, the moaning almost-love-songs Speed of Pain, Fundametally Loathsome and Last Day on Earth, Dissasociative with its chorus crying out for help, and the beautifully sad Coma White which finishes off the album with a flourish. MA is much easier to listen to than any other MM album, and this makes it second only to ACS. A great blend of every emotion possible.

This is quite easily the best work from Manson.Allthough it cost him fans and caused him rejection,from a goth crowd.When it's easily his darkest bleakest darkest gothic reccord but at the same time his most sleazy and glam because it's split between Maralyn manson...a dark alien figure whos haunted by what would appear to be thing or fabtasy woman called "Coma White"..and he provides the bleak dark deppression of this album with his distain with the world.
Then we have Omega and the mechnical Annimals...his alter ego..a drugged up Sleaze/glam rock band..with drug fulled party anthems with clear gothic/industrial leanings.
Standout songs being..."Great big white world","New model No.15",
"Mechanical Annimals","Dissacociative","Posthuman","last day on earth" and of course the most beautiful song he's ever written "Coma white".As you can see the better songcome from the Manson chracter..but songs like "The Dope show" and "Rock is dead" from Onega are good too.
