Here is what some of the press media have had to say about Generation Terrorists:
Artrocker - 5/5 stars
"Even after 20 years, their debut, 'Generation Terrorists' has lost none of its power. Like Guns N' Roses on big fat smart drugs, this is an album of riffs, melody and ideas."
Independent 4/5 stars
"The music once derided as sub-clash, now has an astringent edge that we could use nowadays. At its best - notably the rebellious desolation of "Motorcycle Emptiness" - there is an undeniable majesty about the Manics' project."
Kerrang! - 5k
"Twenty years later and it's difficult to comprehend how anyone could have resisted it; these songs still seethe with more ideas and ambition than every other British rock album of the era put together."
Here are some of the ratings from other press releases:
Clash - 8/10 stars
i - 4/5 stars
Mojo - 4/5 stars
Morning Star - 4/5 stars
Q - 4/5 stars
Record Collector - 3/5 stars
Uncut - 8/10
Vive Le Rock - 9/10
