After over a year of speculation, Manic Street Preachers will tour their 1994 masterpiece The Holy Bible in full this December. The Manics have always been an 'albums band', and this is a body of work that must be appreciated in full.
The Holy Bible is a body of work like no other. Casting a horrified eye over subjects such as the prostitution of the self ('Yes'), Richey Edwards' depression ('Die In The Summertime'), the inherent evil of man ('Of Walking Abortion'), anorexia ('4st 7lbs'), capital punishment ('Archives Of Pain'), the atrocities of the Holocaust ('The Intense Humming Of Evil') and even orgies in the Kremlin ('Revol') - all within 56 white-knuckle minutes.
So, as the band prepare to revisit their crowning moment, we've ranked the tracks in order of greatness. Now, as the Manics would say, "give them the respect they D.E.S.E.R.V.E."
