This album, a dark, sweeping masterpiece, is without doubt the album of the nineties. Bradfield's commanding vocal and guitar performance perfectly compliment the extremely dark (some might say, depressing) lyrics of songwriting genius Richey James Edwards. Add to this Sean Moore's frenetic drumming and it all contributes to a claustrophobic yet immensely powerful album. Edwards's vision is honest yet unpleasant - he pulls no punches, lyrically, so those who prefer to look at the world through rose-tinted spectacles should avoid this album. Those who have an appreciation for top notch musicianship and lyricism at it's most potent should buy this album immediately. Listen to it from beginning to end more than once. It will never leave you.
