Best of the later Manics album
 
My top latter day Manics tracks from KYE to present day era. Think I got something off every album.

Found that soul
Freedom of speech
A song for departure
Love of Richard Nixon
Send away the tigers
Peeled apples
Jackie Collins
Marlon JD
Some kind of nothingness
This sullen welsh heart
30 year war
The next jet to leave Moscow
Hold me like a heaven

Son of Stopped 20-10-2019 11:47

So Why So Sad
Intravenous Agnostic
There By The Grace Of God
Empty Souls
A Song For Departure
Leviathan (Yeah we all want one- sorry, back to list!)
Your Love Alone Is Not Enough
Imperial Bodybags
Journal For Plague Lovers
Golden Platitudes
30 Year War
Walk Me To The Bridge
International Blue

Would have included much more, was going to do single, album track and b-side but that took me over the 13 song limit.

cameron33 20-10-2019 11:51

Honorable mentions: autumn song, this joke sport severed, journal for plague lovers, Golden platitudes (almost a classic, think maybe the production ruins it), Divine Youth, International Blue, Distant Colours, Song for the sadness.

Oh yeah Leviathan, good call. Also, Locust Valley from same era? Awesome guitar solo on that. Also, I used to love intravenous agnostic!

By 'later' albums, you mean an era spanning two thirds of their entire career?

I took it from start of this century. Up for decade by decade lists if anyone else is? But that might be thread hijack etc

It used to mean anything TIMT onwards, though now I'd imagine there would be another 'post-modern' period that is PFAYM onwards?

Isn't it easiest to split them into an early/mid/late based on decade?

Early - GT/GATS/THB/EMG/TIMTTMY
Mid - KYE/LB/SATT/JFPL
Late - PFAYM/RTF/F/RIF

(Although I'd possibly argue TIMTTMY should go into the mid career section)

Golden Platitudes
Auto-Intoxication
(It's Not War) Just The End Of Love
Rewind The Film
30 Year War
This Sullen Welsh Heart
Let's Go To War
Misguided Missile
Walk Me To The Bridge
Together Strong (C'mon Wales)
International Blue
Hold Me Like A Heaven
People Give In

There you go! 13! And I love the comedy of "I don't need THIS!" going straight into the Rugby thing.

IntlDebris 22-10-2019 09:12

I'd split it:
Richey era: GT/GATS/THB
Commercial rise and fall (aka Farrow design era): EMG/TIMT/KYE/L
'Re-energised' / revisiting older sounds: SATT/JFPL/PFAYM
New territories: RTF/F/RIF

Borderliner 24-10-2019 21:00

Groundhog Days (most emo Manics song)
Solitude Sometimes Is (I listen to this one every day)
The Second Great Depression (Perfection)
Black Square
Hold Me Like A Heaven
If you tolerate this (2018 remastered version)
Evidence Against Myself (I haven't listened to this song for ages but I make up for it this week).

Evidence Against Myself you mentioned a great call! One if my most played Manics albums is the PFAYM b-sides; 15 in all I think. Some wonderful stuff there. Much prefer it to the actual album.

Son of Stopped 30-11-2019 20:29

This thread saves me making a new one. I uploaded Manics onto PS3 and made a playlist of last three albums I am unable to share as I don't go online with it.
Check out some bitching combos of three that pop up. And think the song at the end should have ended RIF.
Long list. If song you like isn't down here, sorry I didn't put it in. Happy scrolling!
