i think also ith would be more fitting when he uses more big epic-quiet songs like in the style of
trouble loves me,come back to camden,late night,maudlin street,i know its gonna happen someday
NOT TO FORGET: THE SONG" I CHANGED MY PLEA TO GUILTY"!
s those kind of epic song is important on a morrissey record
its missing on southpaw...no wonder the critics hate it so...
or from the smiths era last night i dreamt that somebody loved me and , i know its over
these were the style which fitted him back then and even more now...
but i think as long as jesse tobias
(who is surely talented but i would prefer to see him with someone else) is on the desk he will stick to songs like :boy happy...
and even though i like the lyrics to all you need is me the music is too formula-rock structured ....
Morrissey asked my cousin where he was from. He answered Compton, which to Morrissey replied"Oh, so you're straight outta Compton aye?"[QUOTE from Ready With Ready-Wit;830350]
Ich weiss nicht, zu wem ich gehöre-ich glaub ich gehör`nur mir ganz allein"(I dont know to whom I belong to,I think I only belong to myself)Friedrich Holländer-1932-
Lifeguard, save me from life,cause it's the only life I'll ever have. Moz
"Mein Kopf ist ein Labyrinth,mein Leben ist ein Minenfeld"
Years Of Refusal would benefit from interesting instrumentation and delicacy.
I really like MDL and don't see it as a departure, but a continuation of one of a number of threads Morrissey has long pursued.
I don't want to hear a particular sound on YOR, but to hear a range of stories, emotions expressed, tempo, etc... to feel I have been surprised, and challenged too. M is capable of much but I think chooses his releases carefully. He can take on influences and new arrangements but not so easily other people's work.
The cover of the Buzzcocks song (I saw a snip of on youtube) - didn't sound like he was engaging with the lyrics. And I've not heard the original, so there's no comparing going on.
Each album has it's own distinctive "feel". This no different I hope.
I have this theory that Morrissey's rock side is sometimes overlooked but I think he really is a rock and roller. And he would probably deny that. I don't know.
I'm not really into "torch singer" Moz...I do like it when he rocks out. Wasn't ROTT supposed to be "balls to the wall"? Personally, I would like it to be sinister, like the strings on 'Teachers Are Afraid...' & when Morrissey's voice sounds kind of whispered or tense. Hmm, not sure how to explain. Maybe more spoken rather than sung. Like 'Maladjusted' and then get all 'wailing' at the end...falsetto
I want lots of loud guitars and I don't believe I'll be let down.
You're just as bad as those non-Morrissey fans who think Morrissey (and his fans) are delusional, miserable malcontents.
But if you're happy in your naive little "let's-judge-people-by-appearances-and-what's-said-in-the-media-about-them" world then who am I to shatter that...
I wish for slapping double bass, it won't happen.
