Review this album
PaulNDec 13, 2004Whilst this album has it's doubters, it genuinely has a feel of success for the Manics, and one can't help but feel that perhaps the old Manics are on their way back. Their next album could be vital!
RandyHJul 25, 2005This band NEVER fails......why??? Cause they are to dam smart that's why! Anyone who claims that the Manics have "changed" or "softened " is the exact same person that would say they were boring if they DID'NT "mix it up" every album. Nick Dresden of Q magazine obviosly has some kind of hatred for this band. Never have i read a reviewer rip into a band with absolutley nothing to back it up except his own hate for the band. Q magazine never should have even printed such a review... its almost racist! Oh yeah and by the way ... Know Your Enemy was great too. And let us never forget this is the band that gave us the Holy Bible and Everything Must Go.… Expand
AdilSNov 21, 2004This is definitely the Manics' best album since Everything Must Go. It is very elegant, beautiful, subtle, and soothing. There's almost any guitar on it, but James fills in that gap with his awesome voice. It's so disturbing to see some people not happy with this album. It is a masterpiece.
