Album Send Away The Tigers (2007). by Manic Street Preachers. Labels Columbia, Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Manic Street Preachers.
It's that commitment to hard rock that makes Send Away the Tigers bracing upon its initial listen, but what makes it lasting is the songs, which may lack anthems on the level of "A Design for Life," but they're something better: they're small-scale epics, roiling with drama and coiled with tension, flirting with being overblown but kept grounded by. the group's reclaimed righteousness and newfound sense of control

Send Away the Tigers" by Manic Street Preachers, off their 2007 album of the same name. I do not own rights over this track, SME are the right owners. I'm just a Manics' fan and didn't find a good quality clip of this song, so I decided to upload one. Lyrics: There's no hope in the colonies So catch yourself a lifeline Things have gone wrong too many times So catch yourself a slow boat to china
Send Away The Tigers is not only a return to form, but the best album they’ve made since the mid-90s. The overriding feeling here is one of grandiosity. Big sweeping choruses evoke the time when the Manics were the biggest band in the country. Your Love Alone Is Not Enough sings in the first blossoms of springtime with a perfect radio friendly hook and flashbacks of You Stole The Sun From My Heart. Silly as Autumn Song might be, ‘‘Rendition’s’’ reminds us that MSP are a band with a political conscience. From the strong military guitar solos through to lyrics like ‘the CIA will remain invisible’, the songwriting on songs like this and the glammy ''Imperial Bodybags'' show the band have lost none of their convictions. It might have guitars but Send Away The Tigers is a brilliant pop record.
