I love morrissey and always will. he's the greatest living artist, for me. The problem as I see it is this:

Morrissey retains the passion and excitement of an adolescent when it comes to music. He's a big baby, and that's why he's still capable of greatness in his 40s. No other artist of his stature has pulled that off.

The problem is Boz and Alain (and jesse) - however much they love music - just don't seem to have that vision or flair anymore. They still have talent and i'm sure they're in love with music. They're both great guys, and very good musicians and songwriters who have provided me with hours of pleasure and pain, while listening to moz's poetry. But, in 2006, they are not capable of world class music. It's that simple.

So, Morrissey needs to find some new artists to work with who can INSPIRE him rather than merely doing what he says and providing a nice melodic backdrop for another indie rock album.

Morrissey needs to do this for the good of his art and for his own good. He's become the musical equivalent of what he has always seemed to despise - the middle class person stuck in a rut.

Why not work with brian Eno and create some sort of glammy, grrove-driven cacophony with Morrissey's words and voice? Why not find a guitar genius somewhere to work with? John Squire? He needs some musical direction anda challenge, too. Perfect. Why not find some artists who want to change the world? WHy can he only stand on stage with some other middle aged men?

Morrissey still has it within him to be the most important artist on the planet, incredibly enough.

But not with Jesse and "the lads."

It's time for a change.
