Review: Manic Street Preachers – Motorcycle Emptiness (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Manic Street Preachers – Motorcycle Emptiness.

This track was released in 1992 on the album Generation Terrorists.

The track starts off with some lead guitars and a drum kit. Shortly after, the vocals start for a brief moment. After an instrumental section, the vocals continue on with the verse. This is broken up by another instrumental section before the vocals finish off the verse.

In the next section, the vocals take the track into the first main chorus after a brief instrumental section. This is capped off with an instrumental section.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse. The ping-pong back and forth between verse and instrumental section continue.

After an instrumental section, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. This is capped off with an instrumental that features some plucked string.

The vocals then take the track into the next verse, continuing the effects found in the instrumental section.

After a brief piano section, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. This is capped off with a short guitar solo.

From there, the vocals take the track into another verse with the ping-pong effect between instrumental and vocal sections. A piano also make a brief appearance here as well.

After this, the vocals take the track into another round of the main chorus. This is capped off with an instrumental section. This instrumental section then leads the track out.

One thing I do like about this track is the lead guitar. It has a pretty novel sound to it.

The main chorus sounds pretty decent. The verses also sound decent enough. What I found interesting is the sprinkling of instrumental sections throughout the verses. I thought that added an interesting sound to it.

This track features great variety throughout. It even features an unexpected piano element which I thought was interesting.

I would have liked to have heard some greater variances throughout the track, however. Maybe add something to the main chorus to help it stand out a bit better. Otherwise, there is that sense of monotony throughout the track in spite of the variety.

Still, this is a pretty decent track. It has an interesting lead guitar and some decent work on the main chorus. The verses also have an interesting sound to it as well. While it may be a bit on the monotony side of things, this track still has some decent features that make it a decent one to listen to.

Score
7/10
