3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, it's not bad. But...., 15 Nov 2000

This review is from: Holy Wood [Clean Version] (Audio CD)
However much I love Manson's music, I find myself thinking "I've heared this somewhere before..." To be honest after two years of waiting, since Mechanical Animals, Holy Wood... is somewhat disappointing. That's not to say it's a poor effort, far from it. It manages to combine good aspects of both "A C S", and "M A". However, it just lacks that special freak dust that Manson so cleverly used in his previous endevours. On the up side, though, I am glad to get back to the dark side. Stand out tracks? Well, there's no Coma White, that's for sure, and Disposable Teens is an almost exact copy of what would be created if The Beautiful People and Rock Is Dead where to fight it out, but each track is good in it's own way. Unfortunately, it just lacks... something. The lyrics are the worst yet, and I'm a bit sick of the God theme. My biggest criticism for this album is definately lack of imagination and too much hype. It's only really for established Manson fans (good for me), but if you are interested in hearing the stuff for the first time, I suggest you get hold of The Last Tour On Earth, which is a collection of the band's greatest tracks off the first three albums (many of which are from the much under-rated Portrait of an American Family) played live. In summary, a possibly OKish iffy slightly disappointing effort from the manson boys. But, honestly, I'd buy it if only for the art work.
