“A Rock n Roll Bland”

published 05/04/2001

ProSix songs that don't betray what they stand for

ConsUnforgiveable bland crap

“In the beginning / When we were winning / When Our smiles were genuine” – The Everlasting It’s easy to deconstruct and to criticise a record in retrospect, so you may accuse me of taking the easy way out when I do exactly that. But from very soon after I purchased This Is...

That 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 top albums. For me they reached their peak in...

“Truthfully classic”

published 02/10/2003

ProIt is a classic album

ConsA few weaker links

I have really been struggling to find something interesting to review of late, and in desperation I have turned to my trusty CD collection, and the first CD I laid my hands on was the 5th album released by Welsh wonders Manic Street Preachers. I remember when this album was released, because I...

“Angelic tunes”

published 17/10/2000

ProEasy Listening Tunes

ConsCan be boring at points

This is My Truth...the fifth Manic Street Preachers album, was the first one I ever bought. I don't think that it is a good album to judge the Manic Street Preachers by, as it does stand out from all the rest. Listening to it, you often have to question if it is a rock. It seems that the Manic...

“The Truth Hurts”

Conslyrics not good and too many ballards about nothin...

This probably their worst album. Although there are some brilliant songs on it the fans want politics and rock. This is more like a collection of ballards. It is very John Lennon. Especially Tender and Tired a piano driven song, about, as all Nicky wire songs Richey the guy who's vanished. Born a...

ProGreat tracks

ConsTrying to think of disadvantages

It always happens after a major album. Every time an award winning album is followed up, everyone starts asking how it can be bettered, where can they go now? It's probably not a very fair way to look at things - artists rarely better this kind of epic album - but it is always destined to happen...

“Pwrformance and cocktails”

published 15/07/2000

Prosee article

Conssee article

An amazing album that gets better the more you listen to it The Manic Street Preachers have been simply the best band of the 90s. Since the loss of Richie Edwards the group was expected to flop, but no they didn't. The new album, "This is my truth - tell me yours" was slated really badly in the...

“everlasting manics”

published 07/12/2000

Proexcellent music and lyrics

Consjdb needs to show off his guitar playing more

There've been mixed reviews of this album - the old Manics fans who don't rate the new stuff compared to the likes of The Holy Bible, and the fans who welcomed the changes in the music and lyrics. Surely it's better for a band to adapt their songwriting as they get older, rather than release...

“My Truth- well, you did ask”

published 13/07/2000

ProTwo very good tracks

ConsBland, boring, inconclusive, apathetic, effortless

For a band so hung up about being insurrectionary, intellectually engaging and challenging, it's hard to really refer to this album as anything apart from a major-league let-down. The singles ("If You Tolerate This" and "Tsunami" especially) are anthemic, soaring and, despite tendancies towards...

ProAll great songs

ConsTakes a few listens to get into....

This album is the latest from the Manic Street Preachers, and does just take a few listens to get into. On the first listen you think it's not that good, but after a couple of times you'll love it. It obviously is the album with the hits You Stole The Sun From My Heart and If You Tolerarte This...

“Manic depression”

published 11/08/2001

ProStrong rock songs, JDB's beautiful voice

ConsNot as strong lyrically as previous albums

It was the long awaited fifth-album from the Welsh saviours of 90s rock, and their first with lyrics penned exclusively by bassist Nicky Wire. The album lacks the self-assuredness of earlier releases which is spelt out in opening song The Everlasting (In the beginning/When we were winning/And our...

This is my truth now tell me yours - One of my favourite albums, the first half are all singles or 'should have been singles' but the second half of the album isn't as good.

“Buy this album”

published 20/10/2004

ProThere is not a bad song on the album

ConsThe album is somewhat depressing

Well if your already into the Manics then this is a must have. Otherwise you should definetely consider. This album is certainly timeless and I have been listening to it for two years. It contains two singles - both brilliant, that you will probably already know. You stole the sun from my heart...
