Manic Street Preachers - Underdogs

Reviewed by Bob on 20th March 2007

The Manics are back...! This time with a free download single (Again, remember God Save The Manics EP? No DRM this time though.) called 'Underdogs'. It starts with your typical Manics esq. powerchord intro and has the distinctive James Dean Bradfield distorted guitar sound throughout. It's an excellent track which will hopefully get the Welsh group back into the limelight after the previous effort 'Lifeblood'. (Very underrated by the press - with the exception of 'The Love of Richard Nixon' which was just wrong...).

It's also released as a very limited 7" Vinyl which all the die hard Manics fans (yes, they still exist... freaks...) have probably already snatched up.

Rating: 9/10
