    Diamonds & Pollen. The lyrics are incredible, and ties all 3 albums in the triptych together, and is much underused, as just a hidden track. Baboon Rape Party is a great track, as the beat is cool, and the Saló samples are really neat, and it fits perfectly with the album era.

    Diamonds & Pollen. Love this track so much. It's hard hitting and then goes into this beautiful ending with the piano and him singing "and all your sad endings.." It's way underrated.

    "A Place In The Dirt". The middle of Holy Wood is unparalleled in Manson's discography, in my opinion - arid and morbid and empty, The Androgyne is more cinematic than anything else he's recorded. And "A Place In The Dirt" is central to that experience. It feels like waking up with light pouring into your sleep-encrusted eyes and having nothing left to live for.

    "A Place In The Dirt" vs. "In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death"
    To revenge the misdeeds of the ruling class, there existed in the middle ages, in Germany, a secret tribunal, called the “Vehmgericht.” If a red cross was seen marked on a house, people knew that its owner was doomed by the “Vehm.”

    All the houses of Europe are now marked with the mysterious red cross.

    Now that's a really tough one! I love both tracks almost equally, both are amazing musically and lyrically, however I have to go with In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death. I feel like that's the song I would play to someone as Holy Wood in a nutshell. It sums up the atmosphere and lyrical themes of the album.

    This is a bit difficult - they both have very great guitar parts - I'll go for the somberly, slow tune ITSOTVOD. I have to say about both songs that I like the beginnings better than the endings, they kind of fizzle out.

    My bad, i'll do it right this time

    The Speed of Pain

    It's such a beautiful song, plus I love how it sort of builds up to the "lie to me, cry to me" and I love Twiggys bass parts in that bit too.

    The Speed Of Pain is my favorite track, it's lyrics about betrayal, loathing, pain, wanting emotions, and not being able to feel, and the theme if it, Robots having a fast sense of pain, fit's that album perfectly.

    A Place In The Dirt is another favorite, which makes this a hard choice. The ambient atmosphere of the instrumentals, and the synths are just amazing, props to Pogo, and the soft guitar strummings are great. The lyrics are evert hung Holy Wood represents, all in one song. All works beautifully together.

    I'd go with The Speed Of Pain

    That is a really tough one. I think Fundamentally Loathsome wins for me. The guitar work is probably Zim Zums best contribution to the band. In fact everyone adds something special to this one. It's a shame it was never done live, but I'm not sure it would work plus it has a fade out. This song is also an example of one where the music and lyrics work very well together for me. The clean solo that sort of explodes into a bit of a storm sounds incredible.

    Fundementally Loathesome vs Into The Fire?

    It's interesting how both songs start as intimate ballads, then go guitar solos and end with repeating the last verses manically. I have to go with Fundamentally Loathsome though, because each of the above mentioned elements is executed much better here. The lyrics are much better as well.

    Fundamentally Loathsome vs. Disassociative
