    On 2007's SEND AWAY THE TIGERS, the long-running Britpop act Manic Street Preachers reconvened after the debut solo albums by vocalist/guitarist James Dean Bradfield and bassist Nicky Wire (THE GREAT WESTERN and I KILLED THE ZEITGEIST, respectively). Clearly reinvigorated by the time off, the Manics offer up some of their edgiest songs in years (see the raucous "I'm Just a Patsy"), while also presenting some engaging pop-oriented moments, most notably "Your Love Alone Is Not Enough," a soaring duet that pairs Bradfield's plaintive voice with the breathy coo of the Cardigans' Nina Persson. Arguably the finest Manics outing since 1996's EVERYTHING MUST GO, TIGERS proves that the Welsh band can still rock with fury while keeping its hooky, accessible veneer intact.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.134) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith audacious, rosy-cheeked paeans to tomorrow....Their cover of John Lennon's 'Working Class Hero' totally schools Green Day's."
    Q (Magazine) (p.84) - Ranked #16 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2007" -- "They've always been adept at finding poetry in defeat, but this sounded suspiciously like victory."
