Manic Street Preachers: Generation Terrorists (Sony)
Barbara Ellen, New Musical Express, 8 February 1992
THE FIRST thing to acknowledge about Generation Terrorists is that the Manics have done it, they've pulled it off, they've released the debut double album they'd set their black rock'n'roll hearts on all along. A provocative, presumptuous enough gesture at the best of times (a debut double album, if you don't mind!) but in today's straitened climate of compilations, reissues and record company play-safe policies, it's nothing short of a modern miracle.
