Lipstick Traces shows another aspect of the Manics' overwhelming recorded output. Much like their contemporaries Suede and Oasis, the Manics had some of their best moments hidden away on their british singles and e.p's. Songs such as the gorgeous and frail "Donkeys", the elegiac "Dead Trees And Traffic Islands", a brand new song (named after a line in "Roses In The Hospital" and subsequently their greatest hits package, "4 Ever Delayed") and a song that never saw the light of day "Judge Yr'self" (the last track the Manics ever recorded with Richey Edwards - it was originally planned to go on the Judge Dredd soundtrack.) Of course as any all-music guide review of a compilation will say, there are some omissions. Tracks such as "Hibernation" and the Joy Division-esque "Black Garden" would have been welcome (especially in the place of tracks like "Valley Boy" and "Close My Eyes".) The second disc is also a treat as it compiles almost all of the band's covers. There are some real treasures on this disc such as their raucous cover of Chuck Berry's "Rock and Roll Music", the subdued take on Art Garfunkel's "Bright Eyes" and the highly bluesy (and previously unreleased) cover of Nirvana's "Been A Son". Despite the rather substandard booklet and artwork (the british version comes ensconsed in a leopard skin slip - and the booklet, for lack of a better term contains nothing but the most basic of information) this is still a must have for any fan of the Manics as it showcases some of the best moments you may have never heard.
