Its clear from the opening one-two of 'People Give In' with its circus-like stomp becoming a romantic swell, and 'International Blue' with its cliché Manics pomp, this is more than just another album from a band now almost 30-years old. Nicky Wire's lyrical prowess continues to shine, which combined with James Dean Bradfield's masterful Welsh vocals continues the band's penchant for huge yet intimate moments 'Sequels Of Forgotten Wars' is traditional Manics with Sean Moore's drumming underpinning Bradfield' riffs, while 'In Eternity' channels Berlin era Bowie. 'The Left Behind' sees Wire take the mic for a fitting end to an album which sees the old commie punks turn their attention to a more romantic vision.
