I'm curious what it is you hate about those two albums?
Staircase at the University
I'm not a Man
Smiler with a Knife
Home is a question mark
My love I'd do anything
I wish you lonely
I bury the living
Are all great, you could argue the lyrical content of a few of them aren't very palatable. But instrumentally and melodically they're superb.
I think you've misjudged Years of Refusal too. Have you even heard it recently?
There's no happy medium on this site, whatsoever. You are either a die-hard fanatic who loves everything, or a seething troll who exists only to dump on everything. What da' shit does it even matter what anyone thinks anyways. Who cares if there's more Scientologists on Earth than Morrissey fans. Who cares if he only sells xxxx copies. It's a freakin' compilation of his favourite songs. HIS favourite. Good on him. Now do I like it? No. It's like a soundtrack to a soft-core porno. Not my taste. Mind you, I live in the past. YOTR was his last decent album; Vauxhall is last great one. Just my two cents.
It’s the die hard
lunaticsfanatics that don’t allow for a happy medium, they’re he real trolls. I love 5 of Morrisseys albums, quite like 4 of the rest. And think 2 or 3 are trash. But you arnt allowed those kinds of opinions on here, you have to put your tongue in Morrisseys arse the whole way, otherwise you’re a “hater”.
CALIFORNIA SON IS THE ALBUM THAT MOZ HAS BEEN PROMISING TO MAKE FOR HIS ENTIRE CAREER AND FOR THOSE PROFESSIONAL MOANERS ON HERE THAT COMPLAIN THAT IT IS ALL COVER VERSIONS THEN I SAY THIS - DID JAMES DEAN WRITE HIS OWN SCRIPTS? DID BETTY OFF CORRIE MAKE HER OWN HOT POT? MOZ HAS HAD THE SENSE TO PUT HIS SONGWRITING PAD AND PENCIL TO ONE SIDE AND GET HIS CHOPS ROUND SOME OF THE MOST CLASSIC SONGS THAT EXIST IN THE ROCK AND ROLL GENRE TODAY - WOULD YOU ALL SOONER HE WENT BACK TO HIS INDIE ROOTS AND COVERED A LOAD OF BRILLIANT CORNERS AND FLATMATES B SIDES? IS THAT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT? IN CONCLUSION CALIFORNIA SON IS ALREADY THE ALBUM OF THE YEAR AND ARGUABLY THE DECADE AND WHO CARES ABOUT SOME PIN BADGE ANYWAY. IT'S A POOR EFFORT WHEN MOZ FANS ARE PICKING FIGHTS WITH IRISH LESBIANS. WHAT HAVE YOU BECOME?
