I'll be getting this as soon as possible, most likely via amazon.




And if anyone still hasn't joined me in my appreciation of James Dean Bradfield, go read my journal!

The Holy Bible rocks. Wow is right.

Favorites so far are "Archives of Pain" and "Die in the Summertime."

Holy Bible's my favourite album from them. IfWhiteAmerica's one of my favourite songs. Is it just me or the drumming remind anyone of Tommy Gun?

I love 'I live to fall asleep' and 'Fragments', this album is great stuff! And the songs are even better live!

I feel bad that this is my first post and is not about U2 ... my bad

Welcome to the board, paintedroses. I think it's great that your first post was about Manics!

Don't even get me started on them right now. I recently finished their biography and haven't been able to stop listening to them since.

Thanks! I can't get enough of them either, I hadn't heard much from them until my friend took me to see them on the Lifeblood tour, then I was hooked and went and bought all their albums and saw them twice again! Holy Bible is the best!

I'm jealous that you got to see them--it sounds fantastic! It will be a cold day in hell, I'm afraid, before the Manics ever come back to the U.S. Glad to hear the tour was great, though! And I agree that The Holy Bible is so, so good.

They sounded fantastic when they toured earlier this year, me and my mate used to be pretty big fans but kind of forgot about them I guess. Terrible thing to say really but I picked up a pair of tickets on ebay for a tenner and we were blown away there aren't many songs that sound as good live as Motorcycle Emptiness.

I think Know Your Enemy is a lot better than some people would have you believe - SHOW ME A WONDER.

...YOU CAN'T BE SURE OF - great album. I didn't really like Lifeblood, and I'm not a (studio) Generation Terrorists fan either, although those songs are great live. Everything Must Go is probably my favourite, the one I include in any 'albums you must own' list.

I've seen them a few times now and they are one of my most admired bands, if I was to list, probably second to U2, they are in my 'amount of music' charts, about 25 hours says iTunes. I got a couple of pairs of tickets for cheap on eBay too, they're the best live band I've seen bar U2, especially as they have so many songs made to be played live, stuff like Stay Beautiful, Motown Junk and You Love Us. Whereabouts have did you see them tarquin & paintedroses?
I best stop now or I'll start to ramble.

If you resurface this thread in late September/early October I will upload a bootleg or two for you, if none of you have any. I have no internet at the moment.

I saw them in Wembley Arena last December I think it was, on the Lifeblood tour.. that was a cold, cold day to spend queuing on the pavement!! Then I went to Southampton Guildhall and London at the Hammersmith Apollo in April. Where did you go?

Yeah they are really impressive live, and I love that I got into them by seeing them live when usually I'll know the albums inside out before I go to see a band, it was a great way to get into them. And not having to wait too long to see them again was good!

A bootleg would be great RA-D cheers, I think I downloaded one of the shows I went to but have probably lost it - not very organised!

A bootleg would be very nice, RA-D.

And I really like Know Your Enemy. For a while, it was my favorite Manics album. The first half of it is especially ace.
