I have to agree with you. Although his newer albums do seem to include songs not up to par than work from say the 90s, Morrissey's voice is not lacking at all. I've gone through all the original source material for this covers LP and they're all right in the pocket for Morrissey. I'm excited for this LP.
Certainly not Moorrissey. Farthest one could possibly get from being a Wilbury.no one allowed to pay tribute to the dude with glasses?
...not unless he found some competent musicians that are willing to play with him.The recent music has been among his most melodic, imaginative and diverse since the early 90s - it's the lyrics that have been absolutely bloody awful. Luckily, he hasn't written a single lyric on the new album. Ergo, it might actually be pretty good...
It's reminiscent of 70s album covers, even the font. It certainly brings out the blue in his eyes. The snippet of the song sounds fantastic and really suits his voice, it sounds better than Roy Orbison s original.
Region restricted currently, the "California Son" sleeve is revealed in the song link.
Have you heard the whole thing, Stephen? The snippet I heard sounded good vocally, but it wasn't enough to judge. I do find his covers a bit lacking generally - he seems to put very little effort into them - but I was keeping an open mind on this album.It's a shame the Roy Orbison cover sounds so.......pleasant and forgettable. Completely lacking the emotion of the original. The bang average production doesn't help either.
No point talking to ^THIS^ clown about music.It's reminiscent of 70s album covers, even the font. It certainly brings out the blue in his eyes. The snippet of the song sounds fantastic and really suits his voice, it sounds better than Roy Orbison s original.
I'm actually really looking forward to this album now.
Don't Interrupt the Sorrow is the one I'm really looking forward to. Although I'm yet to be convinced that the band can match the original's subtle, pulsing jazz.Now listing on Japanese iTunes:
