CD Reviews

Thank you James! I feel the emotive electric.

"When i first heard the middle eight beats that belongs to 'Great western', i wanted to go outside to find someone to kiss. A stranger with bad weather overtones or a bird with a huge sky lip. The feeling was homage to self referential life which beyond the borders and small ideas. Weird thing is; concept of this album based on traditional images of James Dean Bradfield's life-On saturday morning we will (were actualy) rule the world-kind of feeling clunking to the room. But this feeling can create such gems as; //fatalistic weeping "Which Way To Kyffin" or spectral sunshine of "Say Hello To The Pope" easily. It roots lie in salt rock'n roll and innocence of soul. Echoing, scrawling vocal range with plenty of messed up ghosts (Probably tribute the missed direction of the last Manic' album "Lifeblood" ) and broken promises of the 90's. Very special, quite magical within..."
