Manics Top 50s - 6th April 2015

Manics top 50s are a bit like buses, wait a while for another one to come along and......yeah, you get the picture.  Both charts have number 1s which I expect will again feature highly in the final chart, but both have a good mix of traditional classics and personal favourites.

Another thing that struck me while doing the By Era charts was how differently the two contributors view SATT and PFAYM (sister albums of sorts in my eyes), always interesting to see how people can love the same band but have such contrasting views on isolated sections of the back catalogue.

Both contributors are returning from last time, so thanks again for giving up your time to compile the charts!  We've still got the rest of April and May to go and I know there are plenty of people who haven't been yet, my own will be coming up shortly, so keep spreading the word so we can get as many charts as we can!
