EMG is by far their most easy on the ear. I think i've rated them at least twice in this thread but the first four are all 10/10 for me, even with some of the very dodgy tracks.

They made the mistake of not getting big in America and, since all culture flows from America, are kind of seen as a joke band dumb people in 1998 liked before we discovered proper music written by Wilco.

I like loads of Manics songs but only have the holy bible & a best of.
Nicky Wire has been annoying over the years.....but I'll give him a pass. One of the difficulties of growing up in public.

They are part of my roots thanks to those first 4 albums. I get drunk most Fridays now and finish the night watching youtube clips and text my brothers.

I watched this a few weeks back and really liked it, might be of interest to people here. I remember being at the Slane concert at the start. Truth be told, they were a bit shit that day.

Sill haven't checked out the later albums

Ive reached that stage of the night!

Probably a bit softer on my ratings post EMG, but you've got to take history into account. Maybe a point off for RIF and Lifeblood, i dunno.

Back to searching white Les Pauls now.

I would be interested to see and analyze how his ratings for all these albums evolve over time. @pete can we have a thing where we can add all of their albums and add ratings for each album whenever we like and then have some sort of dashboard where we can view the results and compare them all kinds of ways? Thanks.
