It's got the power, it's got the hooks, it's got the nerves, it's got the spirit: It's the Manics in constant, european motion, reminding us that the future is always waiting round the corner.

Their best release since JFPL. Hoping the new album develops this sound more. Imagine Bowie's Low but poppier, mmmmm.

Best Track: Futurology, Europa Geht Durch Mich, or Mayakovsky
Worst Track: Sex, Power, Love and Money
Most Overrated Track: Walk Me To The Bridge
Most Underrated Track: The View From Stow Hill

Another standard post-Everything Must Go MSP album. Nothing offensively bad, but nothing offensively great. Is MSP going for another Holy Bible at this point, or are they just rolling albums out for the hell of it? Who knows.
