"California Son" review by A.D. Amorosi - Variety

Review of the album in Variety that actually engages intelligently and articulately with the challenges of listening to Morrissey at this point in time.

Album Review: Morrissey’s ‘California Son’ - Variety
The quintessentially curmudgeonly British crooner and lyricist finds the crabbiness in other artists’ songs.
By A.D. Amorosi

Extract:

What, then, with his new “California Son” album, could the king of Generation Whine bring to its covers of rare protest songs and gender-switching relationship kitsch from the 1960s and ’70s? Especially considering how much of a mess he’s made of the last several years of record label snafus, bland albums, health problems, gig cancellations and extremist right-wing pin-wearing?

Why, guts, guile and barely controllable emotion. Morrissey hasn’t sounded this passionately committed to song — any song — since 2004’s “You Are the Quarry.”
