Looks like someone's left their guitar too close to the fire...

I played the guitar in a shop. First impression was HOLY SHIT A STARCASTER but when I actually played it, the body shape just felt too small in all the wrong places. It just looks and feels wonky. Was not impressed with the sound either but to each his own.

Protip: abbreviate the name of the band Manic Street Preachers to just 'The Preachers'. Fans of this band fucking plotz if you do that.

The Manic Street Preachers are GREAT.

The Holy Bible is a masterpiece, the albums either side very good and there's always something to like on whatever record they make. I am a FAN.

My favourite band ever. Next week I'm going to see them play live for the thirty-somethingth time, going back to 1996.

Was a fan up till everything must go... Which is middle of the road shite.

the Holy Bible is indeed a masterpiece, one of my favorite albums of all time (and the reason I keep a flanger in my pedalboard)

I like pop music.

Everything Must Go has some great stuff on it outside the singles:

- Small Black Flowers...
- Interiors
- Enola/Alone
- No Surface All Feeling

I'm fairly indifferent to the Manics but No Surface All Feeling is a great name for a song.

They've wrote the odd good tune since, but they're few and far between.

I liked the early albums and saw them a few times around 92-94 as my girlfriend was a big fan.

The newer stuff is ok, but doesn't grab me in the same way. Perhaps I need to give it a second chance
