4.5 superbIai EMERITUS | June 26th 06

Responding to a death is always tricky. But what about when you've just released one of the best albums of all time, and the guy who basically wrote the whole thing dies? What about if he's universally the most repsected and loved member of the group? And what if, to add to all the confusion, you don't even know if he's actually dead? That's where the Manics found themselves before writing Everything Must Go. Nicky Wire, assumin the mantle of primary lyricist, now had to respond to the death of his best friend. We can't speak personally of course, but we do have Everything Must Go to go by, and it's a perfect statement. Before your eyes, the Manics evolved - punk was out, stadium anthems were in. It proved to be the album that catapulted into the mainstream. Events since have shown that they probably don't really belong there, but that doesn't take away from the mastery of Everything Must Go.

Everything Must Go shows the Manics reinventing themselves after the loss of Richey Edwards. After the post-punk fury the band threw themselves in with The Holy Bible, they decided to adopt a more radio friendly rock sound with their fourth album that whilst clearly showing the absence of Richey, showed they could still pull off some amazing rock songs with poppish hooks. Some of the tracks are formed of lyrics that Richey wrote before he went missing and give these songs a dark undercurrent. The band did the transition from rebellious hard rockers to commercial climbers very well and the album still sounds impressive after almost twenty years.

A great, solid album from the Manics. The singles are all fantastic ('A Design For Life', 'Everything Must Go', 'Kevin Carter' & 'Australia'), and hold a certain nostalgic value for me. The other album tracks are also pretty good, including the album highlight and closing track 'All Feeling, No Surface'. The second half is let down a little by two obvious fillers in 'The Girl Who Wanted To Be God' and 'Further Away', but still very good.
