Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Manic Street Preachers have come a long way from the raw Clash-style punky shoutings of their early singles and their later Guns N' Roses infatuation. Both The Holy Bible and Everything Must Go were albums to die for (almost literally: their old guitarist Richey James still hasn't been found since his disappearance a few years back), and this Welsh trio still have the capacity to enrage the most placid of souls. Some find their contradictions far too great to handle, others (this critic included) find them wonderfully inspirational. This Is My Truth is an elegant, epic album full of the huge choruses and direct slogans we've come to know and love. The No. 1 U.K. hit "If You Tolerate This, Your Children Will Be Next" is a deceptively subtle groover with a Motown-style beat--almost Jam's "A Town Called Malice" for the '90s. The windswept "Tsunami" uses sitars to get its message across, while "The Everlasting" is simply beautiful. OK, James Dean Bradfield may have a limited vocal range, but he sure has passion to spare. Four albums after they promised to break up, the Manics are still as impassioned as ever. --Everett True

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I love about music... May 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have put off writing a review on this album simply because I don't think anything I could write would do it justice. This is one of the greatest releases of the 90s, and were it not for a couple of so-so tracks, I would put on the 'All-Time" list. Perhaps on the strength of the other songs this *is* and "All-Time greatest" album. No matter, though, because the Manics really outdid themselves on this one.
This was the first album by the Manics I ever purchased. Living in the States, I was not at all familiar with their music, and had only read a couple of (positive) reviews about them. The moment I heard the stirring strings and emotional chorus of opening track "The Everlasting", I was hooked.
"Everlasting", penned by bassist Nick Wire (as would all tracks on this album), is an autobiographical look of sorts at the history of the band. However, as it is written in the similar style to most Manics songs (metaphorically and full of grandiose statements), it can be viewed by the listener as look back at life, to see where we came from, and how we got here. Though the band now slag the song off and are hesitant to play it live, one gets the feeling that it is because the song hits a little too close to home, and exposes a bit more than they'd like. It certainly ha snothing to do with the quality of the song itself.
Moving on, the album only picks up steam with the next few tracks. "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next" is a rousing anthem akin to "Design for Life", the standout track from the Manics previous (and equally stunning) album. A song (strangely) about the Spanish Civil War, "If you...

5.0 out of 5 stars THE EVERLASTING MANIC STREET PREACHERS May 14, 2000
By "myfly"
Format:Audio CD
Although this is not your usual Manic Street Preachers album, it is still as honest and thought-provocking as any of their others, apart from maybe The Holy Bible. On this album the Manics are on top anthemic form with songs like 'The Everlasting', 'Ready For Drowning' and 'Nobody Loved You'. The only low point of this album that I can think of is the controvercial 'South Yorkshire Mass Murder' which is maybe a slight let-down musically, but not lyrically. This is an album that you really should own, and is also an album that puts all the Amercan acts such as Korn, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot and Blink 182 into shameful perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another review, this time better May 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I already gave out a review on the import but I think you all deserve to read it on the real thing. I won't copy here my original one because I feel different about the album now. First I thought it's great, now I think it's EXCELLENT. It's amazing how songs like "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next" or "You Stole The Sun From My Heart" feels like it was written about me while they were written about things that happened even before my parents were born. And on other tracks, like "You're Tender And You're Tired", "Nobody Loved You" and also "The Everlasting" before radio killed it I feel like I simply want to cry for the honest misery that comes out of those songs. Not a track here is dissapointing and it's a shame that America gets it only now when it actually came out eight months ago. I'm a musician myself and I can honestly say that the Manics inspires me in an unbelieveable way. Almost everytime after I hear one of their albums I feel like I want to write a new song. "Everything Must Go" is also good, even better ("Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky" is the most beautiful song EVER written) so maybe you should start with it before this one, but overall "This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours" is highly recommended. The Manics' music touches me in a way no other band had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tied with The Holy Bible for best Manics album. March 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The single "If You Tolerate This" was my introduction to this amazing band, and it floored me the second it entered my speakers. Really, it's impossible not to like. It soars. Bradfield's voice is spectacular. The "and on the streets tonight an old man plays with newspaper cuttings of his glory days" line is just genius, and the outro is pretty groovy too. It's great. So I bought the album. And after a listen, I was unimpressed with the majority of it. Had I not also purchased Everything Must Go and The Holy Bible (yes, I bought three albums on the strength of one song, it's that good) at the time, I would have dismissed the Manics as one-hit wonders that couldn't make an album with more than one good song on it. And that would have been unforgivably stupid of me, as repeated listens showed me that this is certainly at least tied for first for best Manics album, and indisputably the album of the year.
We start with "The Everlasting." This is impossible not to like - Bradfield's voice has a beautiful melancholy quality to it, the strings are great, and the lyrics are pure genius. Some may say Nicky Wire's lyrics don't match those of Richey James - I'd say otherwise, even if the Wire does write utterly daft things once in a while. But here there's nothing to criticize - "The world is full of refugees" is a great line that for some reason reminds me of Hemingway. Okay. After that gorgeous song, we hit "If You Tolerate," a song about the Spanish civil war (thus also reminding me of Hemingway), which I already mentioned rules. From here we go through 11 more tracks. Some of these are great, some merely good, and a couple not too impressive, but almost all of them are bursting with emotion and sheer musicality.
