I was once told that you should never introduce someone to the Manics with this album but I firmly disagree. If you are ever going to understand the Manic Street Preachers, then you will understand this album.
It may not be an easy listen, it tackles some truly unpleasant topics, but it is something that needs to be heard. I believe that with The Holy Bible, Richey was trying to articulate his internal pain but more importantly the horrors of human history. He wasn't asking for mass pity, he wanted to "rub the human face in its own vomit and force it to look in the mirror".
The Holy Bible was written to reflect history and pose as a warning for future generations to not make the same mistakes again. This album changed my perspective on life, which is no easy task!
One thing that frustrates me is when people classify The Holy Bible as "Richey's" album. He wouldn't have liked that. We have all of them to thank for this masterpiece. I don't feel I have the right to intrude on anyone else, and I don't think anyone should necessarily want to listen to me. I think my lyrics are valid. I can't speak for the music, all I can talk about is my words So I guess it's egotistical to publish your lyrics, but we always publish them because I want people to read them.
So I guess I wanna be noticed in that sense. There are so many people I would love to.. This is that diamond that you want to share with the world but it's so beautiful and you're greedy that you can't help but keep it to yourself. The beautiful Mr. Richey Edwards and Mr. Nicky Wire with the amazing musicality of James Dean Bradfield with Sean Moore has gifted the world a blunt truth about the world, wrapped up in 13 songs with body washing guitar riffs, orgasmic bass especially in "Archives of Pain" , the most head pounding drumming, with JBD's seriously beautiful vocals that preach the lyrics by Edwards and Wire perfectly.
There's just not enough words from me to describe how life changing this album is. One person found this helpful.

I was therefore keenly anticipating the follow-up and didn’t have to wait very long.
