      Sam couldn't even get the right font for that atrocity of a sleeve. Where is BMG?

      EDIT: More importantly, recorded without Boz?

      I don't know if I have the energy to be critical of any of the above.
      The cover, as presented, is...
      Well, the incoming comments will assess it thoroughly I suspect.
      Look at all those new songs he's not recording too.
      I guess that 'deluxe edition' wasn't as important as a Pretenders cover and great way to subvert the live recordings pattern.
      I could go on about the band and how they've been doing other things besides studio time etc...
      But, what do I know? Mando has been in LA since Mexico - so using Solomon is plain odd.
      Just more uncertainty, lack of openness and a hint of 'wilderness' creeping in.
      If we are being trolled, it's being well done with poor materials.
      What a time to run out of wine.

      Solomon left in 2014 after being placed on 'compassionate leave' - replaced by Mando.
      Manning played on Quarry & YOR (at the end of the sessions when Mike left)

      They have songs that were great but were not singles that would suit him much better in my opinion. I'd like to hear him sing "I Go To Sleep" or "English Roses," much more than this.





      I have to admit that he's done okay without my input so far but listen to these songs if you're not familiar and I think you'll be able to hear how well they would work for him.

      I guess it’s too late for April Fool’s? :rolleyes:

      I’m a surprised about the Boz-less lineup too. And I can’t believe that both Mando and Gustavo had conflicts in their schedule that prevented their being on the record. So bizarre!

      The font is hideous, especially compared to the style of the recent three singles, imho.

      Does Morrissey not realize that his original songs are so much better than the covers? (Although, I do appreciate "To Give is the Reason I Live.") Morrissey is so obsessed with music he may not even realize that his own talent surpasses that of the artists he appreciates. Oh well.

      (Re: his message. I just love when Moz tells off the idiots!)

      This feels like high-level trolling.

      Holy cow I just realized Boz is not among “the musicians “ - that much I care for him -
      I sincerely think that mando and gustavo not playing BOTCG has nothing to do with their geographical location or schedule.
      I think it’s just a Morrissey thing..
      or not.
      The plot thickens! o_O

      Thanks for the information, FWD. What a strange photo for the cover. It looks like he’s extracting blackheads. Is he championing aestheticians on the chain gang? Strange place for a facial. Other ideas, All?

      Looks like it's true.

      He's also mentioned Roger Manning several times at the beginning of March on Twitter.

      Let's be honest, all Boz does is strum along the chords. I'm sure the band could easily cope without him in studio if he was busy doing other stuff (didn't he leave the 'Low in High School' recording sessions way earlier than everyone else anyway?)

      Nevertheless, it is something of a first if Morrissey is going to issue something without Boz's involvement for the first time since 1991.
