5.0 out of 5 stars The Holy Grail..., 31 Dec. 2004
This review is from: The Holy Bible 10th Anniversary Edition [2CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
The Manics may have evolved into the Shania Twain fans' rock group in recent years but their lyrical content remains unsurpassed by any other British band. The greatness of The Holy Bible is so because they mix their best lyrics with their most focused, angry, snarling music - Generation Terrorists was lyrically a great album but it was let down by the metal-lite music whereas The Holy Bible is perfectly weaved together by ALL the band (remember it is and was James and Sean writing ALL the music). Richey's lyrics are brutal, transporting the listener into many realms of the human pysche we choose to ignore - prostitution, serial killers' victims, anorexia - their is no let up in the intensity other than the brooding This Is Yesterday, which is Nicky's lyric. Personally, my favourite tracks are Archives of Pain (complete with rock out solo), 4st 7lbs and PCP although their is no track I ever skip. The DVD is a treat, with live performances from festivals, TOTP and Butt Naked (remember that show!?) and the much maligned/talked about American mix of the album is listenable even to a Holy Bible veteran like me. Their definitive work + DVD + extra CD - bargain.
