This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours is the fifth studio album by Welsh alternative rock band Manic Street Preachers, originally released in September 1998 by Epic Records.

If Everything Must Go found the Manic Street Preachers coping with Richey James' sudden, unexplained disappearance, its follow-up, This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, found them putting the tragedy behind them and flourishing as a trio. Wisely, the group builds on the grand sound of Everything Must Go, creating a strangely effective fusion of string-drenched, sweeping arena rock and impassioned, brutally honest punk.

Since the band never writes about anything less than major issues, whether it be political or personal, it's appropriate that their music sounds as majestic and overpowering as their pretensions. Given that the first single was titled "If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next", calling the Manics pretentious is fair game, but they make their pretensions work through a blend of intelligence, passion, and sheer musicality. 

This Is My Truth sports more musical variety than its predecessors, and each song logically flows into the next. If the album ultimately isn't as raw or shattering as The Holy Bible or emotionally wrenching as Everything Must Go, it's because the ghost of Richey has been put behind them.

That doesn't mean that This Is My Truth is light, easy going listening - the portentous, murky closer "SYMM" guarantees that - but it's not as torturous as its immediate predecessors. But what it shares with them is a searing passion and intelligence that is unmatched among their peers on either side of the ocean.

In doing so, it emphasizes the Manics' uniqueness as one of the few bands of the '90s that could deliver albums as bracing intellectually as they are sonically.

Check out the tracks: “If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next”; “The Everlasting”; “You Stole The Sun From My Heart” and “Tsunami”. 

This reissued LP with reproduced artwork and digital download is pressed in Europe on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
