This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours by Manic Street Preachers

The marvellous Manics with a super strong album - that first five tracks are really good, hitting you right from the start with the mood that takes you right to the end. It’s quite a long album, but it never feels like it’s taking too much of your time. I’ve really loved the most recent couple of Manics albums, and whilst this doesn’t quite live up to those for me, it’s still head and shoulders above a lot of other albums.

The Ultra Vivid Lament by Manic Street Preachers

Wahey, this is such a good album. Great tunes and good lyrics as always - a bit more serious in tone than the previous album, and dipping into weightier subjects, but still with the engaging and powerful feeling that draws you in right from the start. I don’t think it’s quite as good as the previous album, which is a proper classic and favourite, but it’s certainly a highlight of what has been a pretty poor year so far.
