“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)

5.0 out of 5 stars More Stuart Adamson than Kraftwerk 7 Aug 2014
By Mark DW
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love the Manics simply because they are herioc failures... except this time they have not failed! This is an epic record of massive proportions - it could have been the biggest White Elephant of 2014 but instead it is the bravest, most original sound that I have heard a rock band make in a long time.

The themes of the album are Europe, Kraut Rock, Travel, Machines and Electronica BUT there is a definite sub-theme in JDBs guitar playing - that of the influence of Stuart Adamson. Stuart was the architect of the sound of The Skids and Big Country. He was once called "Scotland's Jimi Hendrix" by John Peel and was a guitar player who drew upon a wholly different palate from blues growing-up with folk and country nuances and bringing them to loud rock songs; he was also famous for playing a Gibson SG. Hmmm.. who else do we know who brings delicious chords and big un-bent notes and shoves them through a big fat Gibson? Even the retro keyboard sounds on Futurology sound Skids-esque (plus The Skids released numerous instrumentals too) and the album is all the better for it.

Its a great album with a huge heritage, but there are definitely times when the simple, beautiful and elegant guitars are not from Paris or Moscow as the lyrics would suggest, but rather from a small village just outside of Dunfermline...

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on form 20 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Manics back to what they do best - lots of guitar riffs and solos. Compared to the previous album, the somewhat sedated Rewind The Film, (which admittedly, does have its good points), Futurology feels quite powerful in delivery. And the great thing about this Deluxe edition is the addition of the demos CD. It gives you the feel of the processes they went through to record the main album, and also reveals how some of the songs would've sounded without the guest performers - Europa Geht Durch Mich is a prime example of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant................. buy it! 2 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Twelve CD's in and still absolute quality from start to finish from one of my favorite bands. Different and fresh, but still so Manic's. Has potential instant classic status to my ears and is set to be one of my favorite albums EVER.

Has made it straight into the exclusive CD pile near the stereo, rather than the shelves............

5.0 out of 5 stars Es ist fantastisch! 8 July 2014
By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Mine has been a very long love-affair with the Manic Street Preachers, stretching back to the release of The Holy Bible in 1994 which was, and remains, one of the most startling, eye-opening, brilliant albums ever released. Like every love affair, when it turns into a long-term relationship, there are ups and downs and, sometimes, the object of your affection sometimes behaves in a way that you don't particularly appreciate, but, if there is something deeper there, you still love them anyway. The honeymoon period (“Everything Must Go”) saw that giddy love go on unabated. Then, although everything was still pretty wonderful, little signs that they were going through the motions started to creep in (“This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours”). Then there was the big row that almost led to a trial separation (“Know Your Enemy”) and, although they promised to change, what came afterwards (“Lifeblood”) was only a brief glimpse of what used to make us such a suitable pairing. After a few years apart, our worlds collided once more in a spectacular way (“Send Away The Tigers”), we had a second honeymoon which almost felt as blissfully good as the early days (“Journal For Plague Lovers”) and we've been inseparable ever since, as they continue to delight and vindicate my love with excellent album (“Postcards From A Young Man”) after excellent album (“Rewind The Film”). I feel ashamed for ever have doubting them. Despite a few people raising their eyebrows and saying that they'd moved into pipe and slippers territory with their last record, to me it was a beautiful piece of work full of depth, versatility and maturity... and I loved them all the same, together with their laughter lines and the grey hairs dyed away. Their music still holds the key to unlocking this sullen English heart. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Manics never went away 10 July 2014
Format:Audio CD
The manics have an intellect, philosophy and song writing ability second to none. This album is simply the future as I see it and aptly named . What else do you expect from the nicest down to earth talented guys in music? Europa geht durch mich in particular is a ruthless ear worm with Nina Hoss adding drive and authenticity to the vocals. The song is still going round and round and around in my head !! The album is rich in classic Manics tracks with wonderful subtlety supplied with heavy techno beat in the best traditions of kraut rock. This album proves beyond doubt that they keep innovating and never went away. So my advice is to buy it, live a little and don't be told by the music industry what to like.
