The Vorticists - easily. It's even in my top 10 favourite Manics tracks. Dreaming A City is quite close behind, mind you. Everything is far behind, though (although I forgot about Alien Orders/Invisible Armies which is REALLY good!)

Dreaming A City for me. It's just wonderful.

I haven't listened to See It Like Sutherland much, but it just came on and it's so lovely. Not my fave instrumental, but really great.

Probably The Vorticists but Alien Orders is a triumph (and fits JFPL perfectly in my opinion), as is Hughesovka. Vocals would ruin the sheer perfection of any of these.

I went through a phase of being addicted to Ostpolitik - it's the best b-side of that era. See It Like Sutherland proved a pleasant surprise too. You Know It's Going To Hurt also deserves an honourable mention for being all poignant.

Engage With Your Shadow would have made a good instrumental.

...no, I do not mean this in a Wire-bashing way. I just think that it's a lot more exciting musically than, erm vocally.

Old thread, but I'd have to go with The Vorticists, Ostpolitik and Kodawari. Triumphs.

The Vorticists is fantastic. It would have been a great opening track on Lifeblood I think.
