MECHANICAL ANIMALS

Mechanical Animals is music-wise a lot lighter than the previous album, but the lyrics are probably even darker and depressing. On a quest for purity, Manson goes the opposite direction, using alter ego superstar Omega and his band The Mechanical Animals (as a reference to Bowie's Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Hell) to go down a road of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll.

"To me it's a pretty depressing record, and at times it leads you to believe it's not depressing, it's being intentionally fake and sarcastic. The elements of glam are very ironic. I think the more people begin to listen to it, they'll see that the dark. When things are expressed innocuously that's when they're most depressing" (MM in Dissecting MM (pg.14))
