NME says: “The band delve into loss, insecurity and existential dread,
resulting in some of the prettiest songs of their career… A record of
intense beauty, among the best of the Manics’ records this century.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5.
Turn Up The Volume: Even after all these years, the Manics – one of
my all-time favorite bands – do what they do terrifically best, writing
adrenalin-fueled pop anthems that make your ears smile, and move
your excited heart and yearning soul. I know, their slash-‘n’-burn punk
edge of the early days is gone. But their ardent pop sensibility is just
inexhaustible and, yes, they still tackle social issues/injustices – from
past and present – with a sharp pen.
A band designed for life.
