It is the only Manic Street Preachers album in which the lyrics for every song were written solely by Edwards.

What he did leave behind was his band, the Manic Street Preachers, who continued as a trio in his absence with his family's blessing. The band was a bit rudderless after 1998's This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, and Tigers seemed a conscious attempt to recapture a sense of direction- the backward "r"s in the album art intentionally harked back to the band's 1994 masterpiece The Holy Bible.

He was officially presumed dead in November 2008 and just months later the Manics released Journal for Plague Lovers, an album that's an explicit sequel to The Holy Bible right down to its Jenny Saville cover art. The Manics pay tribute to their lost comrade by setting his last writings to music, getting Steve Albini - beloved by Richey for his production on Nirvana's In Utero, a clear antecedent and close relation to The Holy Bible - to produce a record unlike any they've made since his vanishing.
With Journals for Plague Lovers, they're calling in their goodwill. So that leaves us with a rock record, a Manic Street Preachers album. That's all you can judge Journals For Plague Lovers by, and if you do, it comes up trumps on both counts. It's a shade better than Send Away The Tigers, itself heralded as a return to form, and in a year that hasn't really been anything special so far for straight-ahead rock, this is a standout. For Manics fans, they can revel in another added bonus - this is the album that Know Your Enemy should have been.
