The Holy BibleUnited Kingdom Manic Street Preachers
This is THE album. Its truly a masterpiece in every regard. Such intelligence in the lyrics and dark, harrowing and all things "inconvenient". There is so much vivid imagery that is conjured up in lines such as "so wash your car in your X baseball shoes" and " just an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff".

I got into the Manics in 2005 when as a teenager I used to gather together greatest hits of bands I'd liked through sitting in front of VH2 or listening to Virgin Radio and at first this record was a bit too much for me, but two years later I had fully immersed myself in it and although its not my most listened to album (I simply cannot be in the mood for its themes all of the time) - it hasn't fallen places as my most favourite - each time I hear it I am overwhelmed by its excellence.

I had the absolute highlight of my life, musically, when I was blessed with 3 tickets to see The Holy Bible in its entirety for three nights in a row in the cold winter of 2014 at The Roundhouse.

In response to a question you posed elsewhere, I guess it was to offset, more or less the backlash, aimed more at the self-promotion than the rest of his choices. Ratings don’t mean much, but I’d rather not run someone off the site.

As for your chart, I’ll echo what the previous user said. Definitely not my choices, but this chart looks sincere and has some personality, so I dig it. And as a fellow Los Campesinos fan, I’m peaches as pie to see them getting some love.

Overall it's quite a different musical opinion from mine, but I like how your chart deviates from the BEA status quo, and there are some really cool albums here.
