I really enjoyed Mechanical Animals.  The two stories that are featured on the disc has to make it one of the best concept albums ever made.  The material borders on a Rock Opera bit not as cheesy or self indulgent.  He seems to be channeling Ziggy Stardust as story of Alpha unfolds, an alien who's intrigued by the human decedent lifestyle, drugs and their excesses.  Soon it becomes trapped on the planet and turns into Omega a wasted strung out rock star who's life is controlled by the very drugs.  The videos that came out to promote the video are fantastic.  Coma White has to be one of the best ever made.  His love of Jordorowski is evident in this envision of Shirley Jackson's The Lottery.  Musically it's his most mature and finest.  The haunting melodies and dreamy guitar work accompany the depressing and angst filled lyrics nicely.

Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals and Holy Wood form a trilogy of concept albums that relate to one another.
