Um, I need this record to come out right now.

I think the lyrics are going to make it for me, which is what I love so much about Rewind the Film and Show Me the Wonder, both of which I love more and more with each listen. As my own hair turns gray, it sounds like this album's going to help me come to grips with something I think about every day--growing older.

ETA: And Nicky's gonna sing a track too?

I feel pretty good about Nicky singing more these days, I liked his vocals on The Future Has Been Here 4ever. Far and away from the days of Wattsville Blues (I like the song, but Nicky's vocals are hilarious on that).

From the lyric snippets (esp. 30 Year War oh boy) I can tell there's a good chance this will be one of Nicky's strongest lyrically.

I agree. The lyrics mentioned in the article certainly point in that direction.

I don't know what it is about Nicky's singing. I love Wattsville Blues! And I prefer his solo record far beyond James's. There's a certain "fuck it" and "fuck off" attitude added to the song when he sings, and that's something I can get behind. James has his own way of putting those feelings into songs, but Nicky's lack of ability just flies in the face of caring what other people think.

Both Mojo and Q have given the album 4/5.

And here's a 4.5/5 review.

All the songs were played on BBC 6 Radio on Wednesday, really enjoyed what I heard, and the album proper is released in Australia tomorrow. Even despite the great albums released this year I reckon this will be right up there with them.

"As Holy as the Soil" may end up in my top five Manics songs. Nicky sounds so different, and those moments when James harmonizes or takes lead briefly are transcendent. Great mix of restraint and indulgence, and the melody kills.

So no US release for this at all? Amazon wants $27 for the import.

Off to check WOW HD.

I'm going to admit I'm a terrible fan by saying I never got the last album, because I was too lazy to try to find a good import price. Same applies to this one...
