IN THE BEGINNING WHEN WE WERE WINNING

Advantages: Some decent tracks and flashes of what can be done
Disadvantages: Not as good as other things they have done, average album with some poor tracks

...title really sums up to me what I think of the Manic Street Preachers, as well as being a line from one of the tracks on this album. At the start of their career in the music industry they had a cause and played some brilliant music making some t ...
