Both of them have great tacks. Second Great Depression from Tigers + Golden Platitudes from Postcards = <3

Being part of the ''Playlist Generation'' an all thah, I spliced these two rather similar and ropey albums into one barnstorming summery Manics elpee years ago. 'Send Away The Postcards' is the commercial rock album they've been trying to make!

1. It's Not War (Just The End Of Love)
2. Postcards From A Young Man
3. Auto-Intoxication
4. Golden Platitudes
5. Your Love Alone Is Not Enough
6. I Think I Found It
7. Indian Summer
8. I'm Just A Patsy
9. Imperial Bodybags
10. The Future Has Been Here 4 Ever
11. All We Make Is Entertainment


It works really well and I actually listen to it quite a lot. Brighten up a cold November day and make yer own, kids. If you get bored you could move on to 'This Is My Lifeblood..' or summat (the cold, elegiac album the Manics have always been trying to make, obv).

Postcards has: Some Kind Of Nothingness, A Billion Balconies, Golden Platitudes.
Send Away has: Underdogs, Send Away The Tigers, and Rendition.

3 decent tracks on each, both underwhelming.

'Underdogs' listed as 'decent' but not 'Imperial Bodybags'???

Oh, and the title track of 'Postcards' may be a re-write of 'Motorcycle Emptiness' but...I prefer it...<ducks and runs for cover>

Postcards for mine - SATT is my least favourite Manics album, whereas I quite enjoy most tracks off Postcards.

Always thought it was more in the tradition of ADFL/Indian Summer.

Nah. 'Postcards' is built around longer, drawn-out riffs like 'Motorcycle', whereas 'ADFL' and 'Indian Summer' are more picked and skippy.

Forgot how good SATT was for a shower album! Wash, hair did and a shave all before the first chorus of "Winterlovers"!

Postcards all the way, Tigers might actually have the better tracks, but the former is a more complete album.

I much prefer Postcards.

I feel like it does have an element of GATS.

Only VERY slightly though. Nowhere near lyric-wise in my opinion. But there's something there.

There's two albums I really, really couldn't care less about and Tigers is one of them.
