Whats all this about a second album in March?
Quote from band; ''The band also spoke about the second record the Manics plan to release in early 2014. "I think by next March or April, we'll have it all ready," Wire says. "It's not just chucking something out; it's really fully formed. It's the next step on from 'The Holy Bible' and 'Journal For Plague Lovers'. It's quite intense but synthetic as well."

Thanks Rockula. Its quite unusual for a band to release two albums close together but good on them.

They were talking about doing a triple album initially - I guess this is the outcome.

They released another video "Show me the wonder" sounds like its instantly forgetable once you hear it once. Sad that they've turned into a laughing stock for a once great band.

Listened to the new one this morning and it sounds good. Show Me Wonder is one of the weaker songs.

Different is the way I would describe the new un...Not as good as I expected but still quite good if that makes sense.

Listening to it now on Spotify, i doubt i would go out and buy this, whats the point? Lacks any kind of greatness they once had,boring mellow and the lyrics and the music just don't mean anything anymore, god its dreadfull so far.

I quite liked the album and thought `Show Me The Wonder´ was one of the top tracks, a little more upbeat for them and reminded me of The Teardrop Explodes.
