Manics Top 50s - 23rd February 2015

Well, after being up and running for a day we already had our first entries last night and while one of the entries ponders over some accompanying text to go with his chart who better to kick things off than someone I'm sure everyone with an interest in this blog is familiar with - John Slatex aka Manic Street Mania!!!

Big thanks to MSM for ongoing support for the blog with retweets, mentions and facebook posts as always, I'm sure we're all intrigued to see his selections and I'm glad he could find some spare time in amongst everything else Manics-related to contribute.  Keep up the great work!!!

As with the charts last time, the 'By Era' summary appears below each entry, giving a guide as to which albums people may lean towards and which ones may be lower down the personal pecking order.  Of course they can be misleading if your top 3 are from one album and 41 to 50 are from another but it's intended as a rough guide.

There's loads of time to submit before the May 31st deadline, so whether you go for the spur of the moment, how you feel right now approach or the going through everything with a fine tooth comb method (and all points in between) we can gradually keep feeding through your selections as they appear.  Have fun compiling!
