Manics Top 50s - 24th February 2015

It's early days yet in the Manics Top 50 process, but our second chart is from a returning special guest contributor from last time.  In fact, even though it wasn't something I had explicitly mentioned in the rules, for anyone who compiled their chart last time there is the perfectly valid option of simply resubmitting that entry with no new changes and that's the case here.

After earlier success in TV and in print, Dominik Diamond now has a career in radio in Canada and after immersing himself in the local music scene isn't quite as familiar with the newer material as the rest of us, hence their non-appearance here.  So with this resubmission we get a chart heavily weighted towards the first two albums and early material in general, which has been a feature in these early charts (including one yet to appear on the blog).  Thanks again to Dominik for supporting the blog.

But with many of us still thinking about knuckling down to tackle our charts it's still early days and I'm sure the later songs will pick up their fair share of votes.  In fact, after last time, will we manage to get a 100% turn-out in votes from all of the album tracks again?  The last no-vote album track managed to find its way into the last chart about 20 minutes before the deadline, thus completing the set, so let's see if we have a repeat (pun intended) this time!!
