Oh god not another one.

Came to make this same post, word for word!


#5

I love the Manic Street Preachers, but I have every expectation that this is going to be quite poor :frowning:


#6

Excellent. Have no idea why people think it will be poor considering Futureology was probably their 3rd best album ever.


#7

I liked the instrumentals on Futurology. If it’s an album of instrumentals consider me excited.

Nicky Wire’s lyrics have been shoddy for a good while now, only hope is that the current political climate will have rattled his cage


#8

I hope they just list footballers names again


#9

Or banks.


#10

Surely arenas at this stage in their career is optimistic?


#11

No, they pretty much always play arenas.


#12

They bought a farmhouse in the lanes just up from my house to turn into a recording studio. I haven’t heard anything so it’s either been properly sound proofed or it’ll be an album of field recordings.


#13

Lucky you!


#14

fuck all (most) of you. always got time for a new manics record


#15

Remember seeing them at the Cam Cornex on the 10th Anniversary of Holy Bible. Fucking loved it. Would rather drink piss than go to one of these arena shows though.


#16

I loved Rewind the Film and Futurology, so fuck all of you who think this might be shit, even though there’s always a chance it might be. Let’s be optimistic!


#17

I love the popular iconoclastic rock band Manic Street Preachers - and I look forward to a new album in 2018.


#18

I don’t think they’ve made a single bad album.

Some are a lot better than others, but even their worst albums are pretty good.


#19

Their last 2 albums have been good. Bring it on


#20

Some of the film score to The Chamber still has James in Futureology mode - this being the highlight
