I was hoping for a "random woman wanders, lost in a land of quotes" classic, as usual

That's what's it is though? Just a bit more David Lynch than usual...

Well that wasn't amazing, and starting with Nicky's droning home demo is not a good idea to keep curious people watching / listening. Anyway, that's TUVL stuff done with now I guess, get out the KYE box set now

Holding up the Top 100 on four weeks.
A good run. Will hopefully pop back in and out over Christmas.

Aye, I was looking down the chart and not seeing it and was going "oh nooo not even in the top 100 anymo- ah, there they are, number 100!" haha. From 1 to 100 in 4 weeks. Bye bye from the charts now I think as sales are just a mere trickle unless something amazing happens and they get loads of people buying / streaming it.

Olivia Rodrigo still in top ten as well. Not heard probably but will listen and wonder why TUVL not a better or just as good listen.

EDIT: Ah! She has a TV presence. Well another one down to not doing any Television appearances with this album then

As much as i think resistance is lower tier manics the trilogy of music videos they made (international blue, disant colours, hold me like a heaven) are superb and it just shows that when they put a bit of effort in we do get something glorious and not just 'band plays in a room'. But making a short film is bloody hard work and costly and time consuming.

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.

How are people feeling about tuvl one month on? I thought that the initial shine would have worn off by now but, if anything, I think it's grown even more on me. Think this record could become one of their absolute best.

I love it ..every song has been my favourite on different days, I've had it on repeat for entire train journeys , been loving hearing the songs live. Totally deserves a full album gig. Lifeblood is looking worried on my list

It's still overriding every desire to listen to other albums! Even non Manics acts.
I want them to record another album next January to take my mind of it.
I really should make an avatar of the album it's that good.

I even love the album cover. If I had one of those LP frame things it would go in there. Ooh I'd need 2 cos I have the alternate aswell. Now there's an idea

And I've just realised and can't under it, direct right to figure in sea, weather on water gives effect of two eyes and a cartoony smile underneath.
Sorry if this disturbs and ruins the album for you. You have to lean in close to see it.
Guarantee it won't start talking to you! Why would things do that?
