Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar (2001) Retail CD
From the very beginning, this album tells you what it is and what it will be; it is a right of passage, a coming of age and a journey of self-realisation. Irresponsible Hate Anthem is exactly what it says, the battle cry of world hate and self-hate personified. It tells us all that we are worthless and it is only by using the wealth of hatred we all have for each other that we can rise above and differentiate ourselves from the filth of the world. Then, Beautiful People isolates the problem; that the weakness of the human spirit is the weakness of the world, that only strength will out and, tomore… achieve this, weakness must be destroyed. Manson twists and turns violently through various stages of regress and resolution as he shakes of his own weaknesses, emotional and spiritual, and gains momentum and a greater, if not darker, understanding of himself, as he takes us on his long bleak journey. The inconsequentialities of life are cast away, Tourniquet and Wormboy make Manson the willing victim; Mister Superstar tells us that the worst possible role model is the best we will ever get, the only hope is assimilation to the things we abhor, Angel With The Scabbed Wings gives us the feel of damnation rising and Kinderfelt shows us the possibility of absolution, as damned as we have become, Again, Manson transforms once more, finally, throwing off all that was weak in him, he turns on the world that wanted his life and, in Antichrist Superstar, hurls all that hatred back, with such venom and such satisfaction; he has divorced himself from the world that would have swallowed him and slammed his boot down on the crawling masses that desired his blood. This is nothing short of an epiphany, carried seamlessly into (the sequel) 1996, but at far too great a cost. Minute Of Decay is the most heartfelt song of the lost soul ever written and is delivered both passionately and terribly by Manson's resolute but strained tones, this is the last regress before all that ever mattered loses its purchase on him. This song is a tragic ballad that will stir the soul and scar it eternally; this is love and death and so very much more, it is his requiem, a eulogy to a dying martyr. And yet, there is more, from the ashes of decay rises the new Angel, the Darkest Angel of all, as Manson does more that challenge God, he supplants God with himself; resurrected and all powerful, this is the moment of self realisation and the moment assertion, when the Dark Angel becomes more than the sum of ancient fears and hatred. This is the new messiah of damnation; he is all-powerful now and everything that has ever gone before has faded to nought. Finally, Man That You Fear tells us that this power is in us all and that, for good or bad, we must all walk this path and become what we are destined to be.Lyrically, this is cruel and haunting, stripping us bare and forcing us to accept, with a bizarre poetry unique to him, that we are the paradox of our hopes and fears, musically, it is brilliantly forceful and yet gentle, caressing and concussing us into understanding and acceptance. This is Manson's most powerful and emotive work and is a classic, both of the genre and the period in which it was written, so much so that we still feel a resounding sense of this album in both Holywood and Golden Age Of The Grotesque. This album is Marilyn Manson, so blatant and yet so pure, to the given value of purity. This is the stuff of legend!!!
