Manics' done-day?

Here's a question for you: when should the Manic Street Preachers have called it a day? "Accepted wisdom probably puts it at 1994, after the nihilistic, furious Holy Bible. After Richey." On this occasion, accepted wisdom is right, but it's nevertheless interesting to read Marc Burrows' attempts to defend This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours as the apogee of their career - an album I briefly adored but that now just seems mostly bloated and jaded.
