While not as good as Holy Wood this album is still an undeniably well crafted piece of work and is my second fav of the triptych. The glam is turned up to a 100 and that's something I love. And my soul left my body during the last two minutes of I don't like the drugs.
Posthuman could make any album a 93
While not as gritty, ruthless, angry or punishing as some of Manson's other records, there is still some enjoyment and social commentary for the music to be engaging and interesting. This record is a deep analysis of what Manson was experiencing at the time, and it's not just a cry for help, it's a plea for social stigmas and extremism to be erased. Pretty good.

Favorite Jams: Rock Is Dead, New Model No. 15, Speed Of Pain

Lest Favorite: The Last Day on Earth
Probably his best album.
