About this deal

Stuart Bailie, writing for the NME, called the album "confusing" and "too much Slash and not enough burn", but did compliment its musicality, saying "the drums and guitars rumble higher in the mix, and massive, harmonising riffs are everywhere". [18] In his review for Vox, Keith Cameron remarked that the album showed Manic Street Preachers "skating gingerly over that treacherous Difficult Second Album ice". [25] Q 's Peter Kane was more critical, calling the album "superficially competent, of course, but scratch below the surface and you'll find few signs of life, just a vaguely expressed, bemused and bored dissatisfaction". [20] In Spin, Simon Reynolds opined that the band "motor-mouth a fine manifesto, but haven't got a musical bone between them". [26] I def­i­nite­ly want to paint a star­ry sky now. It often seems to me that the night is even more rich­ly coloured than the day, coloured in the most intense vio­lets, blues and greens. a b Jovanovic, Rob (2010).

Four singles were released from the album. " From Despair to Where" was the lead single. " La Tristesse Durera (Scream to a Sigh)" was the second single from the album and it has been described by many as its highlight. The third single, " Roses in the Hospital", peaked at number 15 on the UK Singles Chart, the highest-charting single from the band's first three albums. [14] The fourth and final single, " Life Becoming a Landslide", charted at number 36, which would be the lowest charting single by the band until 2011's " Some Kind of Nothingness".
