After hearing both a few times, can't believe they are not on the album in place of some of the more weaker efforts that have made it on there.

These Dark Roads I really like.

Agree with this, but for me this could sit after Afterending (oh the wilful irony) and play the album out nicely. It feels like more of a closing track, of the two - I find Afterending underwhelming as a closer.

Actually I really like imagining the Still Snowing in Sapporo acoustic demo as the album closer, so make that three.

I’m confused. Is it My Drowning World or My Drowned World?

Or actually, who cares. I absolutely love this song. 10/10

Happily lost in translation. We once had Fearless Punk Ballard.

At the beginning it sounds like James is about to do his Count from Sesame Street impression. Hahaha one signed copy, hahaha two signed copies. Then he starts repeating Ray Jewar. Who the hell is Ray Jewar?

My Drowning World is one of the best Manics songs ever. I love it so, so much

Isn't it though. I really think this is my favourite nicky sung manics song and i just don't understand why it's not on the album, excepting futurology there has been a nicky sung track on every album going back to journal. Silly boys!

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,
and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.
