Rewind the film - the new album by the Manic Street Preachers. Been listening to it non-stop since I got it. It is a jewel of a record. Gentle, fragile, with emphasis on acoustic guitar. Add in spooky electro-pop and nods to sixties soul. Its themes are childhood memories, loss, nostalgia. Each song has a glorious tune, they snag in the mind. Its haunting but uplifting stuff. They locate the beauty in sadness. Highlights include 'This sullen Welsh Heart' - 'the act of creation saves us from despair' - and title track, 'Rewind the film' ('I want to feel small/lying in my mother's arms/playing my old records/hoping they'll never stop'). Check it out, it is a joy.

This is not a rock and roll album. I also maintain that it bears little resemblance to any other Manic Street Preachers album, except perhaps `This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours', and there are still differences.
The album opens with `This Sullen Welsh Heart', and Nicky Wire proclaiming "I don't want my children to grow up like me", setting an immediately reflective tone which is in place for most of the album. This song also features vocals from Lucy Rose, a delicately-voiced, critically-acclaimed singer from Warwickshire whose vocals here perfectly compliments James Dean Bradfield's, whilst also suiting Nicky Wire's soul-searching lyrics, such as "It's not enough to succeed, others must fail". Dissatisfaction, a common Manics theme, is here in abundance.
`Show Me The Wonder', the first single from the album has definitely grown on me. To begin with, I wasn't entirely sure about it, and it is certainly a lot poppier and more upbeat than a lot of Manics singles, there is no denying that when they want to, the Manics can write a catchy song, albeit using lyrics about "the birthplace of the Universe". For this single, they have embraced an old, nostalgic, cabaret style sound, with plenty of trumpets. It works well, after the initial shock of hearing the manics complete departure from anything resembling their rock `n' roll/punk roots.
My personal highlight of the album was the title track. `Rewind the film' contains vocals from Richard Hawley, with James Dean Bradfield joining in approximately halfway through. I consider the song a masterpiece. Richard Hawley plays Hawaiian guitar which begins beautiful, delicately, about thirty seconds in, like some exotic flower opening.

I'm going to come clean; I really didn't care for this album at all when I first listened to it. I've been a Manics fan for a couple of decades now and, the first time I heard "Rewind The Film", I couldn't remember feeling so completely underwhelmed and disappointed in a piece of work from James, Nicky and Sean. Thankfully, I persevered and, over the following weeks, listened to it occasionally until some of the tracks started to shine and then, over the past month or so, I've been putting the album on by choice, rather than to give it a chance, as I was before. It is now my opinion that it's an absolute corker of an album and I love pretty much all of it. I think it's fair to say that it's really quite different from any other Manic Street Preachers album, it's mellower, gentler and much less sonically hard-hitting. Of course, this means that when they do a little of their trademark, explosive big chorus type-thing, such as in the album's sublime title track (featuring the superb Richard Hawley on vocals), it is to great effect.

The album starts with a very soft, defeated song, "This Sullen Welsh Heart" (featuring Lucy Rose) and then bursts into life with the brilliant "Show Me The Wonder", resplendent with punchy brass lines, one of the few songs on this album that has the patented Manics sound. There are many other highlights on this beautifully crafted piece of work. The title track, as I've already mentioned, is fantastic, the gorgeous "Anthem For A Lost Cause" uses strings, brass and those echo-laden backing vocals the Manic do so well to great effect and "As Holy As The Soil (That Buries Your Skin)" is a slow-burner that starts gently and builds into a powerful, soulful beauty.

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.

Listened to this album for quite a while so decided to buy the 2 disc edition, very glad I did disc 1 is well reviewed already but I think disc 2 is much better, it is pure often acoustic MSP, I have loved this band for a long time and at the moment I cannot really decide if this is their best album yet as it is very close to perfection.
The meaning of many songs comes across better in the demos

Buy it!!
