I picked up their first album Generation Terrorists a few weeks ago and it's pretty good. Some great guitar work on that one. I'm not really a fan of this band and most of what by them I've heard over the years sounded decent but not very "rocking".

They were awesome when I saw them open up for Paul McCartney in 2010.

Still in my Top 3 bands, after all these years. They have 3 albums in my 'Top ten', which is tied with Bon Jovi, and they are one of the few bands alongside Jovi that I have also seen live now in double figures.

Kind of funny though, as I am like a lot of Jovi fans here who love classic Bon Jovi and who aren't a fan of their recent stuff, in that I am hardcore fan of the 'holy trinity' of albums from their glory days (Everything Must go, This is my truth.., and Holy Bible) rather than the newer stuff.
Whilst I still like most of their other stuff, it's their earlier work that I keep coming back to.

Seeing them open for Jovi back in Milton Keynes would have been an odd experience, however 'Gold against in the soul' is very much a stadium rock sounding album, you can tell that James is a Slash fan.

Funny as I see after Holy Bible is where they started losing it until Send Away The Tigers. I love first 3 then nothing else until Tigers and nothing after.

I did and although they didnt go down great they were still very good. As above I think their rawness and punkness made them at their best. If people think Jovi have lost it check out the some of the manics stuff which can only be described as utter shit.

Mine too. I'm not a hardcore Manics fan despite my Welshness but I like the first 3 albums. "Sleepflower" is a great song!

I would say ''Send Away The Tiggers'' is one of my all-time favourite album back to back.
