No Plan - EP

Review 2014 release, the 12th studio album from the Welsh Alt-Rock superstars. FUTUROLOGY features contributions from Green Gartside, Nina Hoss, Cian Ciaran and Cate Le Bon. The album is the second of two albums which the band themselves describe as 'the last great phase of the Manics' - the first being REWIND THE FILM. When the band went into their own Cardiff based studio to start the sessions which led to the two albums, they found themselves being pulled into two directions, the first of which was the acoustic style songs of 'rewind..' which deals mostly with the topic of growing into middle age and the retrospective viewpoint of someone realizing they are no longer the 'generation terrorist' of their youth.

Humanz (Explicit)(2CD Limited Deluxe Edition)

Review Manic Street Preachers - Forever Delayed The Greatest Hits - Cd
Tango In The Night (Expanded)(2CD)

Review 2010 release, the 10th studio album from the Welsh trio. Postcards from a Young Man is the follow up to 2009's Journal for Plague Lovers but is musically very different and more in the vein of Send Away the Tigers and Everything Must Go with unashamed soaring choruses, lots of strings and gospel choirs. It was recorded in Cardiff with producer Dave Eringa and mixed by Chris Lord Alge in the U.S. The album features guest vocals from Ian McCulloch ("Some Kind of Nothingness"), John Cale on piano ("Auto-Intoxication") and Duff McKagen playing bass ("A Billion Balconies Facing the Sun"). Manics bassist Nicky Wire sings lead vocals on "The Future Has Been Here 4 Ever" alongside drummer Sean Moore on the trumpet. Columbia.
The Joshua Tree [2 CD][Deluxe Edition]

Review Manic Street Preachers return with their ninth studio album, Journal For Plague Lovers. The album follows the hugely successful and critically acclaimed 2007 release Send Away The Tigers, and the induction of the band into the NME s Hall Of Fame with their naming as the "NME Godlike Genius" for 2008. Produced by Steve Albini and recorded live at Rockfield Studios in Wales during the Winter of 2008, the album features lyrics left behind by former guitarist Richey Edwards across all 13 new tracks. An original piece of Jenny Saville s art is the cover of Journal for Plague Lovers, whose painting graced the cover of 1994 s The Holy Bible . Musically the band draw on their classic Holy Bible sound with elements of Nirvana s In Utero, as well as a delicate, beautiful acoustic side.
