Forever Delayed is OK. It essentially compiles the Manics' most accessible singles but its trump card is that a quarter of the twenty songs have never previously been available on any album. I don't have a problem with the tracklisting. There's a time a place for everything, and the place for The Intense Humming Of Evil isn't on a Greatest Hits. I also think that the 'radio anthem' side of the Manics isn't celebrated enough, and it's telling that their most cherished song Motorcycle Emptiness feels totally at home snuggled up to You Stole The Sun From My Heart and Australia.

The main flaw with the collection is that they've had to edit quite a lot of the tracks to fit all twenty on. In some instances this means including the radio edits, in others the radio edits have been edited (!). This lets it down, and it's also now two albums out of date, so hopefully one day we'll get a more comprehensive Manics primer. I like the format of the Pet Shop Boys compilation Pop Art, with one disc containing their big radio anthems and the other gathering together their more 'arty' side. It would work well for the Manics - a band who can never please everyone.

For someone relatively new to MSP (first picked up on them in 2000), but more recently familiar with the Richey-era, "Forever Delayed" makes a great starting point for anyone curious about the band. If I had followed the band from very early in the nineties, I would probably also bemoan the lack of songs from "The Holy Bible" in favor of the "Everything Must Go" and "This Is My Truth" period. Just the same, this collection provides a good balance of past and present. Besides, it's not as if the beautiful "Motorcycle Emptiness" had been left off the running order. Even the tracks from the misguided mess "Know Your Enemy" fit fine here, though I'd have to agree with several reviews that "Ocean Spray" and "Let Robeson Sing" would have been welcome. The best surprise, though, would be "There By The Grace Of God", a fantastic single that shows the band could be back on the upswing.

After 12 years and six albums of preaching Marxist rhetoric over a continually evolving sound ranging from the Clash meets Guns 'n' Roses rawk of debut 'Generation Terrorists', to the shimmering Phil Spector-esq 'Everything Must Go', the Manics finally confirm what we all already knew: they know how to write a killer single.
The scope of these songs is breathtaking, the brash punk of 'Motown Junk', the grace and beauty of 'A Design for Life', the 'last great baggy single' AKA 'La Tristesse Durera' and both fantastic number 1's, 'If You Tolerate This...' and 'Masses Against The Classes' demonstrate an incisive, vital band in a league of their own. Who else can claim to have written a chart-topping single about the Spanish Cival War as well as having more Top 40 hits than anyone else in the 1990's?
As well as two new tracks, there are also the hard to find non-album singles of 'Motown Junk', 'Masses..' and 'Suicide is Painless', a cover of the theme from M*A*S*H.
The bit that really sends shivers down the spine, however, is the inclusion of 'the fourth Manic', Missing-In-Action Richey James Edwards on the front sleeve - gone, but by no means forgotten.
This couldn't have been improved upon. The Manics know their place - to quote Nicky Wire, 'Every generation has a defining moment - we are yours.'

For those who think the Manics have 'sold out' by releasing a greatest hits.....................why??????? To me this is an album for Manics fan to enjoy over and over again. This is brilliantly put together, switching from old to new throughout. With the inclusion of Masses, Suicide and Motown and the 2 new songs, it's a gift from the band. For those who only know the Manics post Richey, it will give them an insight to the early stuff. Suicide is the song that first made me prick up my ears to the band, so for me the album is worth it for that alone.
Since I received the CD in the post it hasn't been out of the player and i'm sure it will remain there for some time to come.

As another reviewer rightly states, this is not a Greatest Hits package that a Manics devotee would necessarily give their approval too. Bands with such back catalogues are doomed to disappoint someone when they finally succoumb to the cop-out that allows them to release an "album" without actually having to be creative.

Having said that, a singles collection from one of Britain's most popular bands of the last 20 years is very welcome in my house.
There is a theme running through the majority of CDs I've bought in the last 5 years or so. During my student years I was (a) a Blur AND Oasis fan and (b) skint. So I bought Parklife and Definitely Maybe and so on, without being able to afford the "support feature" groups, e.g. Manics, Suede, Supergrass, and all the other bands that appeared on the front of Select Magazine.
Albums such as this allow me to catch up with the music I wanted to own, but couldn't justify buying all the albums (See Dodgy, Shed Seven, Ash, Space, who have all done similar releases)

This is a great album for taking you back to places you'd forgotten - pub nights out, indie clubs, that time at Glastonbury.
It seems that they are not all the full album versions of some that I remember, but then there are a lot of tracks on this album. So for a Manics aficionado, there is nothing new here, but for a newcomer, this is everything you need to get you started.
