Best Manic Street Preachers Albums

Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers have recently released their eleventh studio album ("Rewind The Film" in 2013), so here is a chance to debate their top 10!

The Top TenXW

1The Holy Bible

So dark, it's not quite the melodic stuff you'd find on daytime radio, but it is one hell of a masterpiece.

In my top three album of all time! A masterpiece!

This is a Truly Masterpiece.The lyrics are fantastic.The best album by Manic Street Preachers and THE BEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME.

2Everything Must Go

Stoic Anthem Rock at its finest, packs a punch with just the right dose of pop sensibility to appeal to a wider audience and establish themselves as real contenders for mainstream subversion.

The stadium anthems which brought the Manics so much mainstream success and recognition.

3Generation Terrorists

Full of amazing guitar riffs, this album is loaded with hot tunes.

I love this album! Other MSP albums have my attention & awe but GT has my heart, it's like an old friend that knows me well, it rejoices or cry's with me as needed.

4This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours

Ready for the stadiums, they've written some songs for these occasions...

5Journal for Plague Lovers

A return to the original sound, with bite and venomous attitude.

6Send Away the Tigers

Oh yeah, they're back! - After dabbling with electronic sounds on the previous couple of albums, the Manics bounced back to top form with this record.

7Rewind the Film

Their acoustic album, with their distinctive sound and likability still there.

9Gold Against the Soul

Probably the middle-ground, the Manics' second album fuses the punky tunes of debut "Generation Terrorists" with the dark and less-instant style of its follow-up "The Holy Bible".

10Postcards From a Young Man

Pipping the bloated, disjointed and hard to bear "Know Your Enemy" into 10th place, is the Manics' tenth album, which was released in 2010.

I wouldn't call Know Your Enemy disjointed, it's unique in its eclecticism and contains some of their best raw material. In my opinion, one of their best albums. Postcards however is just plastic commercial trash to my ears. - Bicyclerepairman

The Contenders

11Futurology

A breath of fresh air for MSP. More global themes and sense of electrorock. Neat - UniqueUniverse

12Know Your Enemy

Their most eclectic and complete collection of songs with a heavenly lo-fi feel to it. Intravenous Agnostic, My Guernica, Ocean Spray, Found That Soul, So Why So Sad, Baby Elian, Miss Europa Disco Dancer, Epicentre, Year of Purification... Too many fantastic songs on one album. Don't believe the hate for this album, if you prefer fuzzy guitars over pop music, this is your thing. - Agent_Cooper
