Tate’s words and message remain focussed and devastatingly effective throughout, the Delilah Bon persona unleashing a whole new level of clever, sarcastic, empathetic and righteously angry lyrics.

At times sounding like an inebriated Bryan Ferry fronting Pavement in tribute to Andy Gill, the trio have hit on an identity that is equally complexing and engaging on this, their second album.

Stripped, sparse and barren, yet full of acoustic gems that sparkle.

Boy From Michigan is yet another collection of outstanding songs from John Grant. A series of personal and slightly tragic vignettes that he relays magnificently.

On Coral Island, the band have created what could well be their opus ... It’s a whole world within a world, an escape from reality that resonates deeply, fantastical yet altogether real.

Sentimental is an authentic rollercoaster of a record. It twists and turns, rises and drops you flailing into the next breakneck curve. Johnny Mafia are a band going from strength to strength, a pure joy to see and listen to.

We began by talking about this band’s eternal need for relevance. Here, in 2021, thanks to the brilliance of The Ultra Vivid Lament, Manic Street Preachers remain as relevant as ever.
