ruffled a few feathers:
manics fans are hilarious.
"Reviewer seems to be a real twat. Doesn't deserve 2/10 - probably more 7/10, in considering with other tracks that are out there."
"It's easy to make a living from slagging off other people's work. At least the Manics are creating something worthwhile."
"review's like that are totally lacking in any substance or integrity imho."
"But what irritates me is when music critics attack songs lyrics they don't actually get."
"also that reviewer - what a cunt. Not remotely funny but seems to think he has some sassy uncontrollable wit - "okaaaaaaaaaaay". for fucks sake it reads like a copy of bunty. That was actually at the nme level of journalism, next they will have a photo of the writer so we can all see his hideous face."
and my ABSOLUTE favourite..
"Mike Diver is either deaf or stupid or both."
they're hardcore Manics fans - besides queuing for ridiculous lengths of time, it's what they "do".
really well, and it has always confused me how some people are hopelessly devoted to one band.
i remember back when hardcore manics fans were the ones that went around reading Neitzsche, Marx, Milton etc. Now they're just a boy band to most of these people. Everyone knows the manics have run out of ideas and are over.
"Current music journalism has been obsolete since the mid-nineties."
Thats good. Oh manics fans, what will we do with you?
2 out of10 seems fair to me. That new song is bloody annoying.
a few people agreed with him
i'd say the majority of people agreed with him
far more than i thought would actually
agreed or thought it deserved a 4-5/10 from what I briefly read
Manic fans are smart
your signature on there is enough to make me glad we don't have them here. IT'S MASSIVE!!!!!!!
i only have one image, and it's not animated.
It's a lot better than I originally remembered. It's no Everything Must Go but it sure beats seven shades of shit out of This Is My Truth and Know Your Enemy. Thats not got anything to do with the new album or single but err yeah.
Probably the best post-Richey Manics album...after Everything Must Go, at least. Though I've not heard Send Away The Tigers yet. Solitude Sometimes Is is one of my favourite MSP songs.
they'll find out where you live. They'll look it up. In BOOKS. And then they'll come round your house and totally, like, cut themselves, in your FACE.
and measured. You're like the Tim Jonze.
i refer some of the the smug, stereotyping cunts in this thread to those manics fans who agreed with diver.
some of the statements here are as irratiional and presumptious as the ones being mocked.
but judging by that thread and a few of the other ones i've seen most of them agreed. There seem to be more people on here tarring Manics fans with the same brush than FD posters doing similar with DiS journos. Only one person there said DiS writers "just don't like the Manics".
but it doesn't make the knee-jerk insults and attitudes of the others either any less funny or any less stupid.
are the sacred foundations all music discussion boards are built on.
the seem to agree, in the majority.
Bright Eyes Fans > Manics Fans :D
...even a lot of the 'hardcore' backed him up. Heck, I'm registered on there, have a '10' for the Manics on my profile and I agreed with the review.
you just dont understand
understand Nicky's poetry.
It was even reviewed, its hardly a big release. More a fan only free download.
...and it gives us license to review it.
the new album durdur.
but you're right about it being fan only
because it was released as a 7" single.
because of all the gigs he goes to.
And he's probably stupid too, although I don't really know.
But the review is spot on and the manics fans on that board are probably worse than Tool fans.
Most of them agreed.
But the funny ones didn't.
With a few exceptions Manics lyrics are the most obvious, deliberately-made-to-sound-cryptic-because-we're-so-FUCKING-clever piles of SHITBASTARD known to man. Now fuck off.
