Really enjoyed listening to the pod over the last, what 9 months? I seems like yesterday I listened to the early double episodes. How different the world is now! It's gotten better and better as it's progressed. I thought the RIF and PCFAYM episodes were a bit harsh at times but still very enjoyable listens.
A question I've often wondered about is how we perceive music released by successful bands - it will always be compared to their earlier works that made them successful. Had an up and coming band released RIF, what would we be thinking?

Yeah I think that the comments on the second half of RiF were harsh. Certainly the band front loaded the album with he more accessible Manics anthems, but there are some fantastic guitar moments on there in the back end, particularly Broken Algorithms. And no comment on the Manics thing of spelling out words? Must be one of their trademarks?

Appreciating the love for Lifeblood. What a fantastic winter album!
