Mass communication is making radio-friendly songs like Autumnsong and YLAINE that will hopefully reach a lot of people.

It's weird thinking of them as a ten album band, can't see many modern day bands making it to ten. Bands generally seem to be less prolific now than they were, say 15 years ago, can't believe we're getting albums in consecutive years .

All they mean is it's the last shot at being outwardly comercial, if this doesnt come off it'll be what they want to do not giving a shit rather than music for the masses

Did you read the other replies? Nicky explained exactly what that meant in today's interview.

I just think maybe they think this is their last chance to make a record that will appeal to a wider audience than say Journal did, before they get "too old". Who knows.
I hope they release some proper singles from this album though with some cool videos.

Also, I hope the fact the Manics have a new album and tour can hopefully help No Manifesto get a near release date

Anyone noticed the new band 'font' at the top or is this just me being very slow with realising new and not that exciting things?

Still, releasing an album little more than a year after the last one in todays terms is brilliant. Yeah they didn't exactly do a big tour for JFPL to be exhausted from, but fair play most other bands would just take a year off regardless. All hail the Manic work-rate

I don't know, they took JFPL to America. That's huge by their standards!

When he said 'One last shot at mass communication' on 6Music, I thought he meant that this was the last time he'd be on radio until the album was released. Mind you, they have always said that they'd never 'split up', but carry on releasing albums and things every few years, under the radar as it were.

Ten albums though, that's quite a lot. This'll be their fourth since the greatest hits, or fifth if you counter in the fact that there was nothing off KYE on FD.

Also, I like the name for the album, sounds melancholic. It's almost as if they are having longer and longer album titles in order to make the acronyms longer to spell. SATT < JFPL < PFAYM*


*For this purpose, I'm ignoring TIMTTMY, as that just messes up my sentence.
