U.S. vinyl LP pressing. 2009 release, the ninth studio album from the Welsh Alt-Rockers. The album follows the hugely successful and critically acclaimed 2007 release Send Away The Tigers, and the induction of the band into the NME's Hall Of Fame with their naming as the NME Godlike Genius for 2008. Produced by Steve Albini and recorded live at Rockfield Studios in Wales during the Winter of 2008, the album features lyrics left behind by former guitarist Richey Edwards across all 13 new tracks. An original piece of Jenny Saville's art is the cover of Journal for Plague Lovers, whose painting graced the cover of 1994's `The Holy Bible'. Musically the band draw on their classic Holy Bible sound with elements of Nirvana's In Utero, as well as a delicate, beautiful acoustic side.

After this song their is a few moments of silence before the "hidden" track "Bag Lady" (which is available in the standard editions of the album) begins. The Japanese booklet contains the lyrics (by Richey) for this song in english, which is a nice bonus I guess.
I am not going to go into any detail about the other tracks. You can read all about them in other Amazon reviews and elsewhere. If you are like me and must have all the rare Manics CD's it might be worth paying the extra cash for this edition. Anyone else is better off purchasing the other editions of this album and save some $$$.
