As far as I know, Moz is the only major artist who fucks with the original LP for a re-release. No way am I purchasing this. I'll spend my money on a used copy or just download it.
This site is a complete piece of crap. Why do I keep coming back? I'm related to GG Allin - I make shit, I see shit, I eat shit.
Also, I did find it chucklesome that he nixed 'The Ordinary Boys' but retains 'Bengali In Platforms'. I can just see the Zadie Smith op-ed 'Guardian' blog now. Such fun.

EDIT: I didn't actually realise that 'Viva Hate' was re-released again in 2002. Was there anything different about this re-release, or was it the same as the original or the 1997 edition?

If we are getting at excising weaker tracks, surely Dial-a-Cliche should have been top of the pile? The title says it all.
Up for Pre Order...
With the swapping of OB for TMLAHB, the album will now clock in at under 42 minutes
and thus needs to be pressed on a double LP...why, exactly?
Again, plenty of room for extra session material. Just pure laziness and don't-give-a-rip mentality on the part of EMI
I've already got Viva Hate 3 times. Why's he dropping Ordinary Boys too? It's one of the best songs of the album, come on Moz! Get a grip.
The release date on Recordstore is the 2nd of April. Says 26th of March on true-to-you.... Might hang on for a bit before pre-ordering from recordstore.co.uk. They've let me down several times before.
Dear Lord! Haven't bought any Morrissey product since 2009 -- "Years of Refusal". What's up with all this "redesigned" bullshit? Fuck that. Just retire, dude.
I'm just a boy with a heart full of love
Very strange that the b-sides haven't been cleaned up and included.
Now My Heart Is Full, Drury Lane.
A wonderful intro...
Everybody's clever nowadays.
I agree with Theo.Why does anyone want 88 remastered versions of the same old songs.What do you do with them all? How do you decide which one to play? Does it depend on what mood you're in? Or are you just sad bastards? You can only play one at a time.Fucks sake,spend it on beer or something.Or drugs or prostitutes,you could get run over tomorrow.
