“The secret of life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for your whole life. And the most important thing is—it must be something you cannot possibly do.” (Henry Moore)

Most bands don’t get to their tenth album. Mercifully. By then, the youthful brio, the wit, the desire, ... Read more in Amazon's Manic Street Preachers Store

Format:Audio CD
THIS SEEMS TO ME TO BE ONE OF THE BEST SONGS THE MANICS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COME UP WITH IN THE FAIRLY TRAUMATIC BREAK FROM 'THE HOLY BIBLE' TIME. I FEEL VERY SAD IN THE FACT THAT THE MANICS WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS THEY WERE DURING 'FASTER' AND '4ST 7LB'. HOWEVER, 'EVERYTHING MUST GO' APPEARS TO SUM UP WHAT THE ALBUM (EMG)IS BASICALLY ALL ABOUT. THEY HAVE TAKEN A GREAT LEAP FORWARD IN THEIR CAREER AND HAVE COME BACK WITH SONGS, LIKE THIS ONE, THAT SHOW THAT THEY HAVE CHANGED, AND ARE TRYING TO MAKE A NEW START. THE INTRODUCTION TO THIS SONG SETS A MELANCHOLIC TONE, BUT THANKFULLY THE MOOD PICKS UP AT THE CHORUS. I ESPECIALLY LIKE THE LINE 'ESCAPE FROM OUR HISTORY', BECAUSE THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING. I AM A BIG MANICS FAN, BUT I FELT THAT THE LYRICS OF THIS SONG WERE SOMEWHAT LACKING RICHEYS INPUT. GOOD TRY NICKY!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest little known albums ever 5 Aug 2008
By Josh L. Patrick-Riley - Published on Amazon.com
For the most part this review will be the same as my review for "Doolittle" by the Pxies because I see many similarities between the two. For instance, while "The Holy Bible" is probably the best Manic Street Preachers album, "Everything Must Go" is hands down my favorite. Which is the same as the Pixies, because while I know that their album "Surfer Rosa" is their best, it is also their most abrasive. That is why I prefer "Everything Must Go" for the Manic Street Preachers and "Doolittle" for the Pixies.

Now, a lot of people might not even know who the Manic Street Preachers are, which is too bad, but even more might not understand the comparison. Here it is: Artistic as you can be, you need to some joy in your music to make it fun to listen to, and neither "The Holy Bible" nor "Surfer Rosa" have very much of that. But "Everything Must Go"...just listen to "Further Away", "A Design For Life", "Australia, "Everything Must Go", "Enola/Alone...you get the idea. Listen to the songs and you'll see how much freedom the Manic Street Preachers had without Richey James, even though him disappearing was incredibly sad and you can hear that in the powerfully cathartic lyrics.

As far as desired aesthetic, Steve Albini was very similar to Richey James in that they both wanted an autonomous execution for "Surfer Rosa" and "The Holy Bible" respectively. Yet the albums that came after these two let loose their iron fisted grips were jubilant in their freedom. (While I know it was beyond disappointing that Richey James disappeared, I do not know if the Manic Street Preachers could have made an album as fun as "Everything Must Go" with him around, same as Steve Albini for the Pixies).

Am I making a statement that the two albums from each era were equal in scope and greatness even if different in execution? Yes I am. Both "Doolittle" and "Everything Must Go" are the most enjoyable albums from each group and should be listed among the best albums for the 80s and 90s respectively. Yet "Everything Must Go" is sadly not even reviewed yet on this site, which I account more to almost no one hearing this album than to anything else. I dare anyone who likes cathartic rock music to listen to this album and not be moved, it is impossible.

Like "Doolittle", this is one of my favorite albums of all time and if you listen to it I think you'll see why.
