If Everything Must Go found Manic Street Preachers coping with Richey James' sudden, unexplained disappearance, its follow-up, This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, finds them putting the tragedy behind them and flourishing as a trio. Wisely, the group builds on the grand sound of Everything Must Go, creating a strangely effective fusion of string-drenched, sweeping arena rock and impassioned, brutally honest punk. Since the band never writes about anything less than major issues, whether it be political or personal, it's appropriate that their music sounds as majestic and overpowering as their pretensions. Given that the first single was titled "If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next," calling the Manics pretentious is fair game, but they make their pretensions work through a blend of intelligence, passion, and sheer musicality. This Is My Truth sports more musical variety than its predecessors, which means it can meander a bit, particularly toward the end. Nevertheless, these misgivings disappear with repeated listens, as each song logically flows into the next. If the album ultimately isn't as raw or shattering as The Holy Bible or emotionally wrenching as Everything Must Go, it's because the ghost of Richey has been put behind them. That doesn't mean that This Is My Truth is light, easygoing listening -- the portentous, murky closer "SYMM" guarantees that -- but it's not as torturous as its immediate predecessors. But what it shares with them is a searing passion and intelligence that is unmatched among their peers on either side of the ocean -- and, in doing so, it emphasizes the Manics' uniqueness as one of the few bands of the '90s that can deliver albums as bracing intellectually as they are sonically. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Après un Rewind The Film déprécié par la critique suivi, dix mois plus tard, par le mitigé retour aux guitares de Futurology, les Manic Street Preachers ont choisi de prendre leur temps, quatre ans, pour sortir Resistance Is Futile. Choisi ou subi ? Quatre ans : les Gallois n'avaient jamais laissé passer autant de temps entre deux giclées. Subi : leur habituel Faster Studio de Cardiff a été rasé ; un nouveau local à Newport a été construit ; les tournées anniversaires de The Holy Bible et Everything Must Go étaient interminables. Choisi : les Gallois pensaient arrêter. Alors, ce treizième opus sortant un vendredi 13 pousse-t-il droit ? Dans ce double album, le trio emmené par James Bradfield aligne tubes rock sur tubes pop taillés pour stades jeunes et transpirants. Grandiloquents et abordant des thèmes allant de Vivian Meier (Vivian) à Yves Klein (International Blue) en passant par Caitlin Thomas (Dylan & Caitlin), les 26 morceaux de cette version deluxe augurent « le début ou la fin de quelque chose » selon le propre aveu de Bradfield. C'est sûr. Après trois décennies aux sommets des charts britanniques, les Preachers pourraient bien tirer leur révérence et cet opus devenir leur ultime. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Manic Street Preachers have always been a band of very specific charms, something that has not translated outside of the U.K. particularly well. Although it boasts a generous 20 tracks, the 2002 compilation Forever Delayed isn't likely to change that situation, even if it has the lion's share of their big singles, since a band devoted to sloganeering doesn't play outside of their province, or era, without some knowledge of their context. Plus, it's bewilderingly sequenced -- not chronologically, not as a set list, not with the hits loaded toward the front but as if you had all six albums on shuffle play on your CD carousel -- this disc careens between its 20 songs, occasionally gaining momentum through its juxtapositions (the opening one-two punch of "A Design for Life" and "Motorcycle Emptiness" captures the essence of the two phases of the band) but more often illustrating the extreme difference in the band during the Richey James Edwards and post-Richey eras. And though they certainly don't avoid Richey -- his face is on the cover, he provides the subtext of the band's entire career -- they do submerge the unsettling The Holy Bible, a record as nakedly honest and disturbing as In Utero, by just including one song, "Faster," from what is surely their best album. True, its music is too dark to sit comfortably next to the later hits, but without it, Forever Delayed is missing the pivotal point in the Manics' career, especially since Richey was at the heart of their music and worldview, even after his disappearance in 1995. His descent into despair is necessary to understanding the band, and it's what fuels their two great albums: the harrowing The Holy Bible and the triumph of Everything Must Go. Though Forever Delayed contains many excellent songs not on either, the context is so jumbled the music is somewhat diluted and novices would be better to hear either of those albums first. [Initial pressings of Forever Delayed contained a bonus disc containing new remixes of classic Manics songs, none particularly interesting. It would have been much better to offer a second disc of non-LP B-sides and rarities, since there many out there waiting to be collected.] © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Véritable institution du rock britannique depuis presque trois décennies, les Manic Street Preachers livre un douzième album qui prouve que la source de leur inspiration est loin d’être tarie. Un disque étonnamment pêchu et guitaristiquement très soutenu contrairement aux précédentes livraisons. Toujours partant pour brouiller les cartes et se remettre en question, le trio gallois ose même ici des promenades en terres krautrock et s’amuse à rendre hommage à la new wave du début des années 80 (l’esprit des premiers Simple Minds n’est pas loin). Quelques invités (Green Gartside de Scritti Politti, la comédienne allemande Nina Hoss, la harpiste Georgia Ruth, Cian Ciaran de Super Furry Animals et Cate Le Bon) sont venus épauler James Dean Bradfield, Nicky Wire et Sean Moore qui, à 45 ans passés, ont conservé la vitalité de teenagers furibards. A noter que cette Deluxe Edition comprend un second disque des démos de l'album. © CM/Qobuz

Grand écart musical pour les Gallois. Ce dixième album s’affranchit des chansons obscures des précédents LP pour venir chatouiller les hymnes rock taillés pour les stades ! Afin de fêter cette décade discographique Manic Street Preachers s’offre un opus plus accessible mais toujours classieux.
