    This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours is the fifth studio album by Welsh alternative rock band Manic Street Preachers. It was released on 14 September 1998 by record label Epic.

    Like its 1996 predecessor Everything Must Go, This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours was a commercial and critical success. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK Album Chart, selling 136,000 copies, going Gold in the first week. It sold well in the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia and it represented a change in the sound from the alternative furious rock sound to a more melodic and tender approach. By March 1999 the album was Triple Platinum in the UK alone and since its release it has sold more than five million copies worldwide. It earned the band further nominations and accolades at the BRIT Awards in 1999

    A decent album for the Manics, More mellow and mature from there previous work - minor hits 'You Stole the Sun From My Heart' and 'Tsumani' are good heartfelt songs but the albums stand out is the huge hit 'If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next' - unfortunately i found one to many songs just bland. well written and nice in places but too many songs really struggle to get going and i think this is an album that divides opinion among Manic fans, i can see why.

    6.6/10
