Favourites so far would have to be 3 Ways to See Despair, Tokyo Skyline, Anthem For a Lost Cause, This Sullen Welsh Heart and 30 Years War.

I've only listened to the album in its entirety once, I generally don't replay an album over and over as soon as it comes out.

The lyrics are very to the point for what is a Nicky lyric, I wouldn't have the song in my top half from the album but I have a great deal of appreciation for it given who the song is about.

Apart from a couple of tracks, you're not really missing out on Postcards. It's as close as they'd get to their own HTDAAB (listenable but not particularly memorable), but Rewind the Film is a substantial rejuvenation.

And another album early 2014, they've talked enough about it to the point that there's no way they're backing out now.

National Treasures - Q Magazine - October 2013 - MSPpedia - The Manic Street Preachers Fans Wiki

Feature in October's Q. The little snippet about one of the songs from next year's album made me melt.

Thanks for mentioning WOW HD, DB. I picked up the deluxe edition for cheaper than the regular on amazon, so I decided to finally get Postcards from a Young Man too. I'd never heard of that website, but with free shipping on everything? And imports? Hell yes.

The Manics are really bringing their A game with these videos.

That might have been the most depressing video they've made yet? Even in the periods of their darkest music their music videos didn't come across as hard hitting as this one.

They give you about a tenth of a second to be happy that the kids from Show Me the Wonder became an adorable couple before smashing that thought to pieces.

Still haven't heard the new record. I ordered it from WowHD nearly a month ago. The other CD I ordered arrived after about three weeks and shipped from Hong Kong. I'm guessing Rewind the Film is lost somewhere between here and there.

Time to report is missing and hope they'll send me a replacement, I suppose.

The only time I ordered something from Wow HD, it took over a month to deliver.

That's good to know. Maybe I'll give it another week before reporting it. I really just want it to get here so I can hear it!

Surely you'd have been tempted to seek out the album on Youtube by now?

With the free shipping, you get what you pay for. All the way from Hong Kong. A month later.

Even the UK tour to support the album has finished weeks ago.

In regards to the album, I think it'd feature quite high in my best of 2013 list, but the sort of album that won't be mentioned in many others even despite consistently strong reviews.
