This has changed slightly since I last did it, due to realising I like KYE slightly more than I thought, amongst other things.

TIMTTMY is the first Manics' album I've heard so it'll always be number one for me, like Salvador Dali said 'Everything alters me, but nothing changes me.'

I'm really surprised how high resistance is appearing. I don't hate it just think it's very mediocre

I know from long time lurking that SATT being so high and TIMTTMY and LB being so low might raise some eyebrows, but I genuinely love SATT, it's a great pop rock album, lean and to the point, and with all the wonderful b-sides, most better than some of the album tracks, it really was a great little period for the band.

TIMTTMY has no real crimes to answer for (though I hated it when I heard it for the first time at 19; it's really grown on me as I've grown older). I suppose I see it as lower-end manics because, along the lines of what James said when he rated their records, I like my manics music to have a bit more punch to their sound, and Truth is rather pristine to my ears. That, and its a very melencholic record, one I've got to be in the mood for. It does seen like Nicky's cofessional record, although in an oblique way, and as bizarre as it might sound I find it more uncomfortable to listen to than THB or JFPL. Maybe because Nicky wrote in a more plain way than Richie, it hits home harder.

Lifeblood I like the idea of more than I enjoy listening to it. There are some very good songs on it, but I tend to lose interest during the second half where the weaker material is. I do think Askew Road should have followed Cardiff Afterlife at the end; it would have given a great sense of drama and climax.

Re-assessing my list of 2 years ago. Futurology drops down, as my personal taste has found a fondness for KYE again, and Lifeblood moves up a spot. As the newest album, I've got a lot of love for RiF, although (like Futurology) it'll be interesting to see if I have the same opinion of it in 2 years. That said, I do think that it's streets ahead of anything they've done in the last decade, which belies the idea that only their best work came from the early 90's.

A reminder on the splits, the top 5 are albums I can throw on almost anytime and enjoy start to finish. Critically, or just in my head, they are all classics for a variety of reasons. The middle ones all have amazing moments, but either through excess flabbyness (KYE) or some killer offset by filler (SATT) they don't quite have the strength in depth of the top 5. And the bottom 2 have never really floated my boat, sadly.
