Bradfield is one of my favourite singers for this album alone, his range is incredible from the actual singing to the screaming.
Yeah, he's one of my favourites too. I forgot that they were Richey's lyrics as I haven't listened to the album for quite a while - that'd explain why he sings clearer on later albums. It's kinda funny trying to make sense of the lyrics without the sleeve as well (Faster for example is packed with hilariously nonsensical mishearings).

His range on the album on the album isn't that wide... He's just always singing so ****ing high. He fools you into thinking it's lower because he's so comfortable up there.

Damn you Bradfield!

I thought it was the other way around, ie he wrote music to Richey's lyrics. But it doesnt matter, the outcome is the same. Whenever I read the lyrics I just cant understand how he managed to do anything with them.

Probably a mix, you can't imagine Holy Bible music with his own lyrics, though the new album comes close in some moments.

I love them. "The Love of Richard Nixon" has happily been stuck in my head for two days. Thoughts?

How the **** do you fail a physical? You just need to be able to stand and breathe.

What's the general consensus on Everything Must Go? I ripped my Manics CDs to the com-pue-tar the other day and I'm just giving it a spin now. Pretty good album I'd say. If they'd released the second half of the tracklisting (by which I mean the Girl Who Wanted To Be God onwards) as an EP I'd call it a classic.
