Any Manics lovers on this forum? What do you think of the new album having exclusively lyrics by Richey Edwards that he left with the band and has anyone on here seen the No Manifestos documentary?

Yes Iv'e always had a soft spot for tehm (and I have welsh parents)
First remember hearing Motor Cycle Emptyness on the radio
Everything Must Go-what made them big and I saw them at Loch Lomand when they supported oasis (my favourite band)
,This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours (good but bleak and depressing, not something I play much )
and Know Your Enemy (dissapointing)
I haven't really taken much interest in them since Know Your Enemy as I was so dissapointed in it.
Is new album any good?

We haven't been given a release date yet or anything. It's being produced by Steve Albini.
Working titles for the new album are Journal For Plague Lovers and I Know I Believe In Nothing But It Is My Nothing. I love Truth and Know Your Enemy, there isn't anything that they've done that I don't like actually!:)

I used to like them a lot... I met them in birmingham, saw them this year supporting the foo fighters in manchester, wasn't very impressed though to be honest, might be because i had beer landing on my head.

All good until Lifeblood.
Met them a couple times as I live fairly close to where they come from.

Long-time fan. Still my fave group/artist of all time.
Began to think they'd completely lost it with Know Your Enemy and Lifeblood but absolutely adored Send Away The Tigers. Saw them at Preston Guild Hall last summer and they absolutely blew us away- top gig.
Very interested to hear the new album. Had read snippets that James' guitar parts were very Holy Bible.

Yeah, according to Nicky Wire the sound is supposed to be heavier as well as there being some acoustic tracks along the lines of Elliott Smith who I love. I like the griminess of KYE and the beautiful etherealness of Lifeblood but they are maybe not to everyones taste!

Yes, I like them a lot; heard some of their greatest hits on a colleague's iPod earlier this week, good stuff.

Great stuff! Keep checking them out as they have loads of great records. Don't let some fans thoughts on Know Your Enemy and Lifeblood albums put you off!
