Manic Street Preachers: Gold Against The Soul (Remastered)SONY
Release date: 12 June 2020
Gold Against the Soul is the second album by the Manic Street Preachers. It was originally released on 21 June 1993 by Columbia.
Taking the hard rock inclinations of Generation Terrorists to an extreme, the Manic Street Preachers delivered an intriguing second album with Gold Against the Soul. Inspired by Guns N' Roses, the Manics decided to rework their working-class angst as heavy arena rock; they seize upon the latent politicism of Guns N' Roses' tortured white-trash metal, interpreting it as a call to arms. Since the Manics are more intellectual and revolutionary than the Gunners, Gold Against the Soul burns with inspired rhetoric. Standouts include From Despair to Where a vibrant anthem, plus Drug Drug Druggy and Roses in the Hospital.
Available as a 120 page A4 book featuring unseen images from the bands’ long time photographic collaborator Mitch Ikeda, many personally annotated by Nicky Wire and original typed and handwritten lyrics from the bands own archive. It will contain two cd’s featuring the remastered album, previously unreleased demos, b-sides from the era, remixes and a live recording of The Clash song ‘What’s My Name’. There will also be a 180g vinyl version of the original album with download codes to the extra tracks on CD1 and a digital version featuring all the songs.
