Best Of 2010 - #18

Manic Street Preachers - Postcards From A Young Man

The tenth album from Manic Street Preachers, and the first time I've really got into them. I have listened to This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours but that was so long ago that I can't really remember any songs bar the first four or five. But after I heard (It's Not War) Just The End Of Love on the radio, I thought this would be quite a good listen. And generally, it is. The first half of the album is absolutely brilliant - it sounds absolutely epic, but nothing beats the single for me, although Postcards From A Young Man and Some Kind Of Nothingness come very close.

The second half of the album, however, drops in quality a bit, except for the fantastic I Think I Found It. After that song, however, the songs drop below average for me. But listening to the first half again makes me forget all that.
