James Dean Bradfield on Postcards from a Young Man


“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

Product Description

Fans of Welsh rockers The Manic Street Preachers have been holding their breath for the arrival of the band's eighth studio album. Will Send Away The Tigers be evidence of another new musical twist? Might they revert to their old fiery ways? In fact, Send Away The Tigers does both. An intriguing blend of backwards-looking nostalgia and forward motion, fans might be pleased to learn, first of all, that the album features its fair share of anthems. "Your Love Alone Is Not Enough," (which features Cardigans singer Nina Persson), "Indian Summer," "Autumnsong" and "The Second Great Depression" all boast catchy choruses and are underpinned by the stadium-rock aesthetic of the good old days. The Manic's political fire also remains intact, shifting emphasis to the Iraq war with mediocre songs like "Imperial Bodybags", while the title track and "Rendition" indicate a slightly more innovative direction. It's no Holy Bible, nor a Generation Terrorists - but Send Away The Tigers does show the boys can still make a glorious racket when they try. --Danny McKenna

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars The boys are back in town 19 April 2007
By Nikolai
Format:Audio CD
I'm going to get straight to the point: Send Away the Tigers is a fantastic album.

It's the sound of a band waking up and realising what it was about themselves that made them sound so powerful, unique and exhilarating and then applying that to record. It's also like they've finally managed to strike the perfect balance between their more abrasive 'punky' moments and their epic, grandiose numbers - bringing the two together to create something truly thrilling.

To name but four songs, Rendition and Send Away the Tigers will make your heart beat faster (or maybe even stop it for 168 seconds), and The Second Great Depression and Autumnsong will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

When MSP are on this kind of form they are still very special indeed, and alongside The Holy Bible and Everything Must Go, a trilogy of classic Manic Street Preachers albums is now finally complete.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Send Away The Tigers is the Manic Street Preachers' eighth studio album and, for a number of years before this album, the music press and the world, as a whole, really lost interest in anything the Manic Street Preachers had to offer. Even 2005's Lifeblood, which was a very good album indeed, was largely met with indifference. A couple of solo albums last year, James Dean Bradfield's critically acclaimed The Great Western and Nicky Wire's almost universally panned I Killed The Zeitgeist appeared to stir interest in the Manics again and this, coupled with the fact that Send Away The Tigers is simply too good to ignore has led to this album being probably the most well-received album since Everything Must Go.

There is a good reason for this, naturally. This is, very probably, the best Manic Street Preachers album since 1996's Everything Must Go. Speaking in terms of consistency and letting the quality of the music speak for itself, it even tops the highly successful This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours from 1998. It is, in part, a return to the roots of the band, but is also a very contemporary, urgent and relevent album - striking the balance between being political and angry over injustice rather than preachy and recapturing their fire and spirit without descending into unlistenable, unpleasant heavy punk rock which, in my opinion, I don't think the Manics every truly pulled off. They are always at their best when their propensity for melody is combined with powerful music and intelligent lyrics which provoke thought and discussion.

Send Away The Tigers, a reference to Tony Hancock's description of drinking to chase away his demons, is without doubt the album that Manics fans have been longing for for over a decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever 19 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
People tend to say that "Send Away the Tigers" is a return to form after the disappointing "Know Your Enemy" and "Lifeblood". I do not agree. I enjoyed "Know Your Enemy" very much, and "Lifeblood" was also a very very good album. "1985", a song from "Lifeblood", is, in my opinion, one of the best Manics' songs, second only to "Motorcycle Emptiness". Therefore, I do not consider "Send Away the Tigers" to be a return to form - it is as good as ever. It is different from "Lifeblood" - more energetic, less electronic, but as melodic. It is also different from "Know Your Enemy" - more mainstream, less punk, but as hard.

"Send Away the Tigers" is indeed a brilliant album. The guitar riffs of James are there ("Imperial Bodybags"), killer-ballads are there ("Second Great Depression", "Indian Summer"), hard-rock is there ("Rendition")... Concerning the best songs on the album - "Your Love Alone is not Enough", "Autumn Song" and "I'm just a Patsy" - it suffices to say that each of them had more than 30 play counts on my iPod two weeks after the release of the CD.

The Manics are not back. They have always been with us. And they stay here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Back To The Best 9 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
Whilst Manic Street Preachers will probably never be able to revive the energy and darkness of "The Holy Bible", "Send Away The Tigers" does resemble, in the main, "Everything Must Go". Indeed, the opening bars on Indian Summer could be Design For Life part II. The album doesn't have a weak track. It was delivered last night and, apart from sleeping, I haven't stopped listening to it. A real return to form from what some thought was the disappointing Lifeblood (though I found it refreshing to listen to a band that have grown up), this album still follows in the vein of Lifeblood, whilst harking back and warmly reminiscing previous glories. Highlights for me, at the moment, are Indian Summer, Autumnsong and the title track. Well worth the money - essential listening.

Oh, and the title actually refers to Tony Hancock, who would apparently use the phrase when trying to rid himself of his depressive moods.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Assured Album With a lot to Offer 4 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Manic Street Preachers are a band who have always been so followed by controversy, and so utterly distinctive, that in many ways, nothing that the Manics could ever release again will ever meet some people's unreasonably high standards. Despite that, the Manics are and always have been a totally authentic band: a band who achieved a number one single with a song about the Spanish Civil War, another number one with a record which had no promotion, and a never-ending supply of angry rhetoric and profound intelligence. In short, they have a huge supply of the charisma that so many modern bands are pathetically lacking in.

And after the mercifully brief MOR Lifeblood era, this album is a very valiant effort at getting back on track. For starters, the entire album has far more self-assurance and feeling than anything on Lifeblood, whilst the music and lyrics have raised in intensity again, fitting somewhere between 1999's 'This is My Truth Tell Me Yours' and 2001's 'Know Your Enemy'.

The opening track, 'Send Away The Tigers' is automatically striking in that James has returned to his much more distinctive and aggressive style of playing guitar, which has been abandoned for the aforementioned 'Lifeblood'. This is a good thing, in fact, the confidence of the riffs along with the quickly sung abundance of lyrics make 'Send Away The Tigers' the Manics best opening album track since 'Yes', on 1994's 'The Holy Bible', and in fact, the quickfire delivery is also very reminiscent of 'Yes'.

'Underdogs' is also one of the most energetic songs that the Manics have produced in a long time, being a short, effective, and most importantly fun slice of punk, paying tribute to the army of disaffected Manics fans who have been central to the success of MSP for years.
