RTF and F

I love both; I only discovered RTF this year when Futurology was released. My daughter was born on the day RTF was released last year, I didn't have much time for catching up on albums; gave it a short listen, just once, didn't take to it. Revisited it during the hype of the Futurology release, and loved it!

Two very strong albums, and 12 bonus tracks/B Sides combined, so on ipod THREE very strong albums 2013/2014 from one of my favourite acts. Great time to be a fan

Absolutely - I love it when the manics are prolific in their releases.

Certainly is; I remember first viewing the video and then Glasto performance of 'Walk me to the Bridge' - thought it was excellent; the chorus is just so good. It slipped in my rankings somewhat due to some even better tracks on Futurology, but, on seeing them perform it in Dublin - it sounded amazing; have had the album on all week since last Saturday's show

I've gotten back into the album as well recently. I still think the 2nd half is patchy but the 1st half is fantastic.

Since coming back from Manchester I've played Futurology over and over more than I have THB.

F'ology

Exact same as me'self, Son of Stopped, I've been playing it everyday since the gig; the more I hear it the more I love it and feel it'd in my Top-5 Manics albums.

I've great memories associated with it and RTF - this summer during the good weather taking my baby daughter out for walks to the parks, when she napped I had Futurology on the ipod; the album will always be special to me as I associate it with those great days. I enjoyed the hype and fantastic reviews the album got on release, the excitement of seeing the YouTube videos of the tour..

On return home from the gig last weekend I played Futurology twice, and it's B Sides! Most everyday since, it's been on also; wonderful album!

No, 23 in The Sun's top 100 albums of the last year, saying Between the clock and the bed the best track to download. Is that still going to be the next single??

I think one of them (Nicky maybe) mentioned they might release it as the third single. Probably too late to release it now.

Finally listened to it, as it turned up in my Christmas stocking. Loving it - no one told me it was this good.

So far The Next Jet to Leave Moscow is my favourite, but that could change.
