Manics "Best Of"

The Manic Street Preachers new album Postcards From A Young Man is now out.

While I give it a listen and try to figure out if this is a worthy successor to their fantastic "Journal for Plague Lovers" album last year, below are my picks for an essential "Best Of" list of Manics songs for those not in the know about this band yet. Running sequentially from their first album from back in the early 1990s all the way to last year, this group of song spans not only their chronological history, but also the varied styles they've explored:
  • Motorcycle Emptiness
  • Motown Junk
  • Roses In the Hospital
  • Faster
  • Yesterday
  • Kevin Carter
  • A Design for A Life
  • If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next
  • You Stole the Sun From My Heart
  • The Masses Against the Classes
  • Intravenous Agnostic
  • Ocean Spray
  • Glasnost
  • Solitude Sometimes Is
  • Your Love Alone Is Not Enough
  • Autumn Song
  • Peeled Apples
  • This Joke Sport Severed
There, that's 18 songs from 9 albums and 1 EP from the Manic Street Preachers. All are available on iTunes. Check this band out.

Back in a while with a review of Postcards From A Young Man.
