REVIEWS

******
superklasse
******
Anfangs nur als Gedicht von Nick Wire gedacht, schried James Bradfield diese wundervolle Melodie. Zusammen ist es die Hymne über die Arbeiterklasse in Wales. Super.
******
Sehr schön, v.a. im Refrain
******
Brilliant
******
Bravurös
*****
Tönt nicht schlecht, auch die Klassik-Elemente im Song. Es fehlt allerdings die geniale Hookline im Refrain. Eine knappe 5.
*****
..sehr gut..
*****
Kannte diese Band bisher nicht. Tönt gut. Ich liebe diese melodiösen Song mit dem soliden Beat und dem groovy Sound.
Zudem ist es technisch hervorragend produziert.
****
4+, garnicht so übel. #2 in GB.
*****
der Song steigert sich bis zum tollen Refrain, tolle Band toller Song

Spitze aber welches Jahr?

1996 war das.
Nicht hart, aber hetzend, dazu eingeschränkter Optimismus und verzweifelter Zynismus..

"We don't talk about love, we only want to get drunk"

Dies war das erste Lebenszeichen der drei verbliebenen Manics James Dean Bradfield, Nicky Wire und Sean Moore nachdem der psychisch kranke und magersüchtige Rhythmusgitarrist Richey James Edwards im Frühling 1995 spurlos verschwand - es blieb bis heute keine Spur von ihm. Zur Freude der Fans der Gruppe machten die Waliser allerdings weiter und veröffentlichten 1996 diesen wunderbaren Song. Mit Edwards war die Musik der Manics sperrig, laut und unangenehm, doch "A Design for Life" war anders - melodiös, pathetisch und wunderschön. Nicky Wires Text über die vernachlässigte Arbeiterklasse im Vereinigten Königreich wird von James Dean Bradfield mit solch einer Wut und soviel Leidenschaft gesungen, dass man meinen könnte, er würde uns die Lyrics direkt ins Gesicht schreien. Unterlegt wird der wunderbare Gesang von schönem Gezupfe in den Strophen und verzerrten Akkorden im Refrain. Sehr dick tragen die Waliser mit den Streichern auf, doch dies stört wirklich gar nicht. Viel zu ehrlich und emotional ist die restliche Darbietung. Vollkommen verdient wurde "A Design for Life" der erste grosse Erfolg für die Band (#2 in UK), ebenso das folgende Album "Everything Must Go" (ebenfalls #2 in UK). Bis heute blieben die Manics grösstenteils dem melodiösen (Brit-)Pop dieses Songs treu (Ausnahmen wie die grandios lärmige #1 "The Masses Against the Classes" oder einige Songs aus "Know Your Enemy"), doch nie wieder würden sie an die fragile Schönheit von "A Design for Life" rankommen. Ein Meisterwerk.

Klasse gemacht von denen....
*****
...sehr gut...
*****
Da waren sie noch grossartig, die späteren Sachen waren dann einiges schwächer...
******
Episch, bombastisch, pompös, pathetisch - und grandios!
****
4+ schönes Stück, wenn auch nicht umwerfend
******
Bin gerade beim Stöbern zufällig auf die Maxi gestossen. Super Song - Super Gruppe.
******
Melodie, Streicher, Text, Sänger - alle genial.
*****
Great song!!!
****
Ich würde mal sagen solide und (ziemlich) gut.....

4 +
*****
Another classic anthemic Indie rock anthem. Great. UK#2 and Ireland#17.
***
Es erstaunt mich selbst, dass ich diesen Song anscheinend noch nie zuvor gehört habe. Aber ich finde, ich habe nicht allzu viel verpasst. Andere ihrer Songs gefallen mir deutlich besser. 3.5
******
Im Vergleich zu einigem Chartmüll, den man mir aufgezwungen hat, eine wahre Wohltat. Geiles Lied. :-]
*****
In mei 1996 de 1e single van ''everything must go''. Bleef in de toenmalige Mega Tip 30 steken (29-21-16-14-10). Jammer want het is een sterk nummer!!!
*****
Das sind Hymnen!
****
Cool track.

Peaked at #49 on my personal chart.

ein nettes Rockstück aus den 90er, braucht etwas bis es in die Gänge kommt – 4*...
*****
Great track.
*****
eingängiger Rock/Britpop-Song im 6/8 Takt. Der Song beinhaltet sowohl typische Gitarrensounds, als auch Streicher-Elemente und ist wirklich ohne Zweifel einer der besten Songs der Manics. Etwas unkonventionell ist der Schluss des Songs (Album), bei dem die Percussion einfach weiterläuft, während alle anderen Teile bereits gestoppt haben.

1. Auskopplung aus Everything Must Go, pompös und pathetisch, gefällt mir.

Zeer sterke single van the Manic Street Preachers.

Massive hit from this simply amazing band!

alter klassiker von msp! toller song!!

4.5* - not my favourite, but a good song from a great band.
******
Great

Wow, what a monster of a track.

Un peu trop bruyant mais le message passe.

niet zo goed als "Motorcycle Emptiness", maar toch ruim een voldoende
*****
Prima nummer.
*****
Breiter hymnischer Soundteppich. Gefällt mir, knapp 5*.
******

Wow schon 20 Jahre her.......und immer noch geil!
****
Krachtige rock-song van Manic Street Preachers, goed voor 4 zonder meer in dit geval.
*****
▒ Wederom een gave, toffe, vergeten plaat uit half april 1996 van de Welshe alternatieve rock formatie: "The Manics", alias: "Manic Street Preachers" !!! Ga ook mee met de 5 sterren ☺!!!

Meine Ohren schmerzen 3.5
