A Superb Album, 16 Sept. 2013
I have been waiting for some time for the release of an album that is not only worth buying but that can stand up to some of my favourite albums ever. Rewind The Film is that album. Although it will not make big waves in the world of music it's sheer quality makes it stand out amongst the dross that is currently in the album charts. The greatest achievement of the Manic Street Preachers here is that they have created an album that is so well placed in contrast with their other albums, it's more reflective, more mellow, more melancholic than anything they've done before. There were elements of this more reflective sound in Postcards From A Young Man with despondent songs like Golden Platitudes but Rewind The Film is a seamless album of middle aged reflection and nostalgia.
