I was lucky enough to see Manic Street Preachers play Spectators of Suicide at the gig I went to last month. Apparently it had only been played live twice before this tour (at one show in 1986 and another one in 2008)!
Wow, I didn't know that the maideny bits were on purpose.
James Dean Bradfield said:Nick handed me two and half pages of A4 taped together and I was like ‘oh thanks cheers’, he laughs. “I read the lyric and I didn’t want to chuck any of it away. It was brilliant. He indulged himself with the lyrics, so I thought f*** it I’m going to indulge myself and go for it musically.
Sean got his Motown Junk self back drumming on that track, with a bit of Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain and Rush drummer Neil Peart thrown in for good measure. There’s no reconciliation in that song, there’s no empathy, there’s just attack, so we thought let’s go for it.
Are you agree with this ranking?
As I promised, here is my ranking:
- Send Away the Tigers (2007)
- The Holy Bible (1994)
- Generation Terrorists (1992)
- Everything Must Go (1996)
- This is my truth tell me yours (1998)
- Gold against the soul (1993)
- Resistance is futile (2018)
- Futurology (2014)
- The Ultra Vivid Lament (2021)
- Lifeblood (2004)
- Postcards from a Young man (2010)
- Journal for Plague Lovers (2009)
- Rewind the Film (2013)
- Know your enemy (2001)
I really enjoyed with some of the albums that I didn’t listen until now like Send Away the Tigers, Resistance is futile and Futurology.
I think the last albums of the ranking are not necessary bad, but some different, intimate, acoustics…
What about that book? I suppose is written according the musical taste of the author, isn’t it?(the first two are featured on the 1001 Albums you Must Hear Before You Die book by Robert Dimery)

Is there a Metal album?
Maybe I’ll buy it
