Manic Street Preachers - Send Away The Tigers - Cd
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 McKennaSee all Product description

Its hard to believe its been 10 years since this record came out.
It was an odd album following Know your enemy and Lifeblood but clearly an attempt to revive the success of their 96 and 98 albums.
I suppose this album is a cross between Lifeblood and Everything Must Go (some try to make it out to be Everything must go part 2 and its not)
A really straight forward record, loud guitars, to the point songs that don't go on and on for too long.
A real meat and potatoes no nonsense Manic Street Preachers record.
Not forgetting of course, only a year before Nicky Wire and James Dean Bradfield both put out solo records (both worth a listen of course)
Particularly James Dean Bradfields if you feel their is not enough Manic Street Preachers songs.....
Although it seems, they have no problem recording music, often putting out albums.
Clearly a band of ideas not intentions.
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.
"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.
Oh, and the title actually refers to Tony Hancock, who would apparently use the phrase when trying to rid himself of his depressive moods.
