5.0 out of 5 stars Die in the summertime, 4 Nov. 2004
This review is from: The Holy Bible (Audio CD)
Without a doubt die in the summertime is my best manics track and although it is close (with generation terrorists) this is probably there best album. There are nop tracks to skip every one is filled with the genius of Richey Edwards. This album is as faraway from pop as the manics have ever been.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underated, 4 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Gold Against The Soul (Audio CD)
This is perhapse the most underated album the manics have ever produced. It has been overshadowed by the previous super debut (generation terrorists) and the wonderfully original (holy bible) being inbetween these two blockbuster albums has definitly overshadowed this quality album. The only negative i can point out is the length of the album especially after generation terrorists 18 tracks it certanly seems a little short which is why only 4 stars. The key tracks here are Life Becomming A Landslide, La Trisstesa Duerra, Nostalgic Pushead and Roses in the hospital.

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of something great, 22 May 2004
This review is from: Generation Terrorists (Audio CD)
By all means this is very diferent to the other albums the manics have produced. But in my opinion it is certanly there best.
The general feel of the album is similar to the sound the clash were recording in the late seventies however there is significantly more focus on James Bradfields guitar work. After a few lstens the true genius behind the songs become aparant Richey Edwards lirics are extreamley thought provoking and far superior to the general aproach of writing any old lyrics to fit the song. The only drawback to this is that sometimes They sound a little rushed however this generally does not damage the overall sound to much.
The key tracks in my opinion are- Slash and burn, loves sweet exile, motorcycle emptiness, stay beautifull and condemmed to rock and roll. Definatly worth the purchase price. However by all means do not expect this album to be similar to any of the reasent manics stuff it is a million miles away from this is my truth..
