This was probably the first sign that Manic Street Preachers were definitely 4REAL. Amazing guitar lines and hooks, ferocious lyrics, phenomenal synergy. In the music video they do look like the weirdest boyband ever though, James is looking as fine as ever, Richey's a typical rockstar, Nicky's a bit too glam, Sean's a metalhead
Thanks, "Everlasting" for me was the wrong single choice. I'd prefer either "Ready for drowning", "I'm not working" or most likely "S.Y.M.M.". All of the songs are very cinematic and could have been huge with an appropriate music video.
