'Whats the best starting album for these guys to get into?'

From memory... err this one, although Gold Against The Soul got a ton of playtime in my early MSP days. Current me would just tell you to check The Holy Bible and then discard the rest, but perhaps that's a little disingenuous given my past affinity with their work.

Love the atmosphere on this one. So lush and beautiful yet the melancholy still comes through

THB riles up, this soothes. Digging this a lot on first couple listens.

Over half of these songs have been constant earworms over the past couple days

Careful - don’t start preferring post-Richey Manics, a slippery slope

Don't worry Doof mate, The Holy Bible is still solidly above this - also checked the first two albums earlier today and greatly enjoyed Gold Against the Soul (liked the debut too but that will probably need time to grow, the occasional hair-raising highlights notwithstanding)



This is one hell of a pop album though, at least to my ears

I think my top 5 these days would be



1. Holy Bible

2. Everything Must Go

3. Generation Terrorists

4. Journal for Plague Lovers

5. Gold Against the Soul



But I'm a fan of almost all their albums. Postcards and Know Your Enemy are the only ones that pretty much leave me cold

Tentative ranking of the first four:



1. The Holy Bible [4.6]

2. Everything Must Go [4.0]

3. Gold Against the Soul [3.5-4.0?]

4. Generation Terrorists [3.0-3.5?]



This Is My Truth will be next (will be next) (will be next) (will be NEEHHH-EHHHXT) - not expecting an album on this level but if there's even one or two more gold nuggets like "A Design," "No Surface," or "Australia" I'll be quite pleased. I did check "If You Tolerate This" as a standalone the other day and enjoyed it

Update after 11 and a half albums: Manics best with Richey, still good without, may he rest in peace/power/paradise

Recently saw these guys live with The Killers. A Design For Life has to be one of the most epic live performances I have ever seen. Gave me chills!

Also saw them open for the Killers, excellent setlist. Motorcycle Emptiness and ADFL were definitely the highlights. They still put on a great performance.

First half is banger after banger. From the bridge in Kevin Carter to that contagious hook in Enola / Alone. Always love returning to this album.
