Futurology - Manic Street Preachers - Futurology (CD, Album)

From first listen to now, I love it. And there's many great, great tracks on the album. It's my favourite album by the band since 's much opinion dividing, commercial flop 'Lifeblood'. I don't tend to count 'Journal for Plague Lovers', although I strongly like that album.

Highlights Yes, there's lots, so what? Several guest vocalists appear on the album, similar to that of 'Rewind the Film', which featured Richard Hawley and Cate Le Bon on tracks each.

This isn't a bad thing having guests, it worked when Nina Persson from The Cardigans featured on Your Love Alone is Not Enough and became a big hit in the UK singles chart It reached number 2, being held off by Beyonce and Shakira's Beautiful Liar All in all, Futurology is the band's best album for almost a decade, barring 's 'Journals'.

I am very pleased to hear it reached number 2 in the album chart in the UK beaten by Ed Sheeran's X which spent it's 3rd week at the top , although I'd have liked it if it became their second number 1 album, which is something fans have been waiting for, for a very long time They only ever topped the album chart in A masterpiece!!!

A group that deserves our respect. Great songs , a Berlin atmosphere , the spirit of Krautrock , fresh and A masterpiece!!! Great songs , a Berlin atmosphere , the spirit of Krautrock , fresh and genious. I love that album … Expand. After the subdued and melancholic 'Rewind The Film' from last year, the Manic Street Preachers have released a carer re-defining album called After the subdued and melancholic 'Rewind The Film' from last year, the Manic Street Preachers have released a carer re-defining album called 'Futurology'.

The aesthetic of the album is evident upon looking at the cover and the album title; a definite feeling of grandeur is shown by the photo looking up at a woman dressed in all white, slightly elevated from the ground in front of a white and snowy backdrop. The album itself continues this very well. Driving rhythms and heavily reverbed effects contrast with each other to create a new -yet familiar- sound for the Manics; it seems to draw on the presence of the Holy Bible and Lifeblood as parts of their back catalogue, two looming presences from opposite peaks of their career, as if the differences between these albums have been compromised and brought together to create a shudderingly up to date and current sounding record.

This record both looks to the past and into the future, drawing influence from what the Manics know best to push them forward in a totally new direction. If you're a listener looking for this band producing a classic sounding album, you probably won't find it here, but you won't be disappointed, it's their best yet for some time. The film has been rewound, but now it's time to look at the future. From the start it is obvious that this is the Manic's most positive and The film has been rewound, but now it's time to look at the future.

From the start it is obvious that this is the Manic's most positive and forward thinking album; the opening title track is the biggest indicator of this, with its proclamation that "We'll come back someday, we never really went away. The Manic's, for all intents purposes, never left us - at least not in the physical sense. But one can certainly feel that ever since the pinnacle of success they've not been as memorable, that is not to say that the band has been bad but it has lost focus.

With its latter day albums reflecting on the past culminating with 's Rewind the Film Futurology comes as a fresh start to a new phase that embraces tomorrow whilst paying homage to the band's influences. The Manics aren't ditching what they are, they're building upon it and finding an invigorating path into middle age. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
