Pitchfork said: “As personal as the songs on Know Your Enemy may be,
there’s always a definite political thread tied up in there, too. Though the
band’s agenda can get mighty opaque at times, the album feels throughout
like some sort of call to arms. They’re not just preaching to the converted.
Rather than aiming stylistically at a certain audience, Know Your Enemy finds
the Manics attempting to write a protest song in just about every genre.” .
Turn Up The Volume: An LP that got better over the years – several
great singles on it – just like the red Bordeaux wine in your cellar.
