A Prologue to History
on 1 August 2003
This is a superb album, an excellent collection of b-sides which pretty much gives an good alternative history of Manic Street Preachers. There are some stunning tracks on the double album, the most notable for me being, Judge Yr'Self, Prologue To History and 4 Ever Delayed.
During a recent web chat Nicky Wire said he thought that Richey's favourite track might have been Donkeys - it is a beautiful song, as is Sepia which was written by Nicky about the loss he felt after Richey disappeared. Makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up!
If you haven't already bought it and you're a Manics fan I recommend you get it NOW!! Forever Delayed was their "official" greatest hits album but this one is equally worthwhile and infinitely more entertaining.
