The Ultra Vivid Lament

Manic Street Preachers

Alternative & Indie - Released September 3, 2021 | Columbia

The Ultra Vivid Lament, the fourteenth Manic Street Preachers album, marks a turning point in the band's career by debuting at number one in the UK charts, something that hasn't happened for... twenty-three years! That's quite a nice surprise for the trio that was formed in 1986. On this album we find their inimitable mix of flamboyant pop mixed with rock, featuring distinguished guests such as the American Mark Lanegan of the Screaming Trees, also known for his performances with Queens Of The Stone Age. Another guest is the glamorous Julia Cumming from the Brooklyn-based band Sunflower Bean, who is also a model in her spare time and has been seen in ads for Diesel and H&M. She lights a fire under the single The Secret He Had Missed, a great tribute to Abba's disco pop songs, with a frantic rhythm and a catchy, pounding piano. One also thinks of the bombast of Simple Minds or Roxy Music's sallies into disco... Nicky Wire underlines this in interviews, explaining earnestly that the album is "framed within" Abba's Waterloo and Echo & The Bunnymen's Bring On The Dancing Horses. “I’m not going to pretend that we’re reinventing the wheel in terms of modernity, but it’s definitely framed within that era of time”, he says. And the album does have something of the seventies about it, underpinned by a darker romanticism, which can also be detected in the sometimes bitter lyrics on Ultra Vivid Lament... Take, for example, the little gem that is Diapause, or the marvellously-titled ballad Into The Waves of Love... This fourteenth volume of the band's adventures is presented here in a deluxe version, which also contains no fewer than thirteen demos(!), laying bare the whole creative process of the Manic Street Preachers. Ultra Vivid Lament makes it clear that despite the passing years, their imagination is still very much at work, and showing no signs of running out of steam.  A great record. © Yan Céh/Qobuz
