physicist or actor, both pretenders, which of the two are you.? i personally prefer my cox to be found in deerhunter or atlas sound and no not the movie.
It's an absolutely bloody splendiferous album, isn't it???
My fave right now is 'Istanbul'.
Such a beautiful, aching, yearning pearl of a song. It's all great, though. Not one single track on the whole album that isn't the bee's lovely knees. Not many Morrissey albums you can say that about, eh? Vauxhall & I is one and, erm.
It's even more incredible when you consider how bad the previous album was and how terrible those few songs previewed a couple of years back.
The King Returns...
I still have to say it's Istanbul. The other songs are great and wonderful and after another few listens maybe I'll change my mind. But the one song I really stopped what I was doing and listened when it came on again was Istanbul.
The more I listen to the b-sides the more I feel that the bread of the said “sandwich” that Derek17 mentions are the strongest tracks (Scandinavia and Art-Hounds). I think those two should’ve found a place on the album. I do not dislike the other 4, but I don’t think they’re better than the tracks that made the LP proper.
