    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Wow

    This is like the Manics have re-invented themselves and I love it. Keep up the good work boys!

    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Great melodic pop, immensely likeable.

    Hardcore Manic Street Preacher fans probably won't like this release. It's too effective by half - even more so than 'If You Tolerate...'. It's undeniably a slice of fantastic, if slightly offbeat pop. The chorus floats by beautifully and is sung particularly well. The atypical subject matter merely serves to add interest to the music, giving it a cerebral glow. The public's fascination with the Manics has recently subsided, but I couldn't give two hoots - this single is three and a half minute pop magic.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    A great return...

    The Manics casn justifiably be called pompous know-it-alls. Nicky Wire has a breathtaking ability to antagonise the music press and anyone else who comes into his presence. That said, I never consider transferring those criticisms into reviews of their music as justified.

    Sometimes they get accused of being MOR compared to their earlier records, sometimes they get accused of double standards. Basically though, this record is about double standards. It is not about Nixon actually being a good guy or Clinton being a bad one - it's about the inherent contradictions that history forces on US presidents and more widely on everyone else. The Manics themselves for example are always referred to in the same breath as the disappeared richey Edwards.

    The song itself is a real grower. Some fine singing and guitar playing from James Dean Bradfield over a Pet Shop Boys like rhythm and a fine melody. The song's lyrics are not really as controversial as they sound, merely suggesting that a more intelligent analysis than "the Watergate guy" be applied to Nixon.

    So - a great song, well worth the purchase. it also happens to hail from a very fine album - "Lifeblood".
