Who Built The Moon?

Review Manic Street Preachers have come a long way from the raw Clash-style punky shoutings of their early singles and their later Guns N' Roses infatuation. Both The Holy Bible and Everything Must Go were albums to die for (almost literally: their old guitarist Richey James still hasn't been found since his disappearance a few years back), and this Welsh trio still have the capacity to enrage the most placid of souls. Some find their contradictions far too great to handle, others (this critic included) find them wonderfully inspirational. This Is My Truth is an elegant, epic album full of the huge choruses and direct slogans we've come to know and love. The No. 1 U.K. hit "If You Tolerate This, Your Children Will Be Next" is a deceptively subtle groover with a Motown-style beat--almost Jam's "A Town Called Malice" for the '90s. The windswept "Tsunami" uses sitars to get its message across, while "The Everlasting" is simply beautiful. OK, James Dean Bradfield may have a limited vocal range, but he sure has passion to spare. Four albums after they promised to break up, the Manics are still as impassioned as ever. --Everett True
Journal for Plague Lovers

Review Digitally remastered and expanded three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0) 20th Anniversary Legacy Edition of the Welsh band's 1992 debut album. Includes 18 bonus demo tracks plus a DVD that contains film clips, documentary, home movies, TV performances and more.
Postcards From A Young Man

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.
