Manic Street Preachers

hmm its such a shame these boys have mellowed out along with time

i mean, who here doesnt see their 'Holy Bible' album as 'your Holy Bible'?

oh yeh, one of rock's greatest mysteries is definitely where did their original guitarist Richey Edwards go?

for one i miss that certain 'LOSER retro punk' feel about their music since Edwards went AWOL on us

still one thinks everyone here likes their Everything Must Go and This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours albums, because they SO "u2-ey"

ah well

its so fucking funny, dont you know?

I like most of their stuff, although I feel like I haven't listened to them in a long time. I did really like 'The Everlasting' off of 'This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours.'

I luuuuuurve the Manics- they are a great band, I remember that I got into them in about 98 when I heard Tsunami and then I saw a concert of them playing at Glastonburry and was in love with their music and power and then I discovered their earlier albums and read about the whole mystery thing and was very, very intrigued, so anyway I voted for this is my truth but I must say that it was hard not to go for the Holy bible as well, oh well when I get home today I think I will go and listen to some Manics

also i thought they were funny in their weird mysterious behaviour in their earlier days
especially by nicky wire and richey edwards
i mean nicky once said in a concert he was devoting this song to michael stipe who is on his death bed dying of AIDS
how fucked up is that? haha

well they shouldnt have mellowed out, for one, we've got someone named Bono and his overpatriotism towards America. an act like that is as popular as a nerd bending over to pick up his pencil they dropped in gradeschool asking for a wedgie, or an atomic wedgie

hes changed his singing style from the earlier days
he started off virtually just screaming and shouting at the microphone to accomodate Richey Edwards' confrontational lyrics

and oh yeh and many think he looks like that former character Billy from Ally McBeal
