To refuse to answer questions about ones former band mate, whom you have no "beef" with whatsoever, would seem terribly silly. Morrissey is a hugely successful and quite controversial figure, with whom Marr made some of his most memorable stuff. To have Marr answer a few questions about him seems very natural. If Marr was the controversial one, Moz would be the one answering questions about him.
It's that simple.
the smirk whenever he is asked about Moz (which is all the time since that is anyone is ever interested in asking him) must be due to the new that dont fight properly.
Call The Comet is like fruitcake at Christmas. No one wants it.
Perfect analogy. Everybody leaves the party after partaking of the wonderful foods and drink and the Comet fruitcake sits untouched, people avoid as if it contained a plague from another dimension. last to leave the party puts the comet fruitcake under the cupboard so they dont have to face it next year.Call The Comet is like fruitcake at Christmas. No one wants it.
Yes but its not Morrissey so the fanatics on here can't cope with that. Great that Mojo think so as its one of the best selling music mags in the Uk.
Understood. But I'm stuck at an airport. So here's more year end lists.
And American radio station list:
Top 50 Best Songs:
Orthodontist: Are you sure?
Johnny Marr: YES, I AM SURE, I WANT THE BIGGEST f***ING TEETH YOU CAN FIT IN MY MOUTH STOP ASKING.
Songcraft is a problem throughout the album’s 12 bloated tracks, but the fact that they’re long isn’t the issue-
-Marr can, and has, held our attention before. It’s more that they lack conviction and structure.
here is a review that sums up the Comet Catastrophe, a legit publication.
Very Bloated with many problems including lack of conviction and structure.
very bloated maybe has botox in them.
Poor DramaJ never had conviction and structure.
Congrats, you found the one bad review! But there's this:
Call the Comet is meanwhile Marr’s third record as the proud singer of expansive songs which declaim a more positive vision. The dystopian possibilities of Donald Trump’s election were at the front of his mind as he wrote it: Call the Comet responds by rifling through the dystopias and utopias of the age of nuclear paranoia in which he grew up. This is a record steeped in both the chilly yearning of Bowie’s “Berlin” albums and Ziggy Stardust’s glam apocalypse, as well as the science-fiction paperbacks by the likes of JG Ballard which inspired them.
The muscle of the synth-powered 1980s “Big Music” which followed Bowie, early Simple Minds especially, also thrums through Call the Comet. Typically, “The Tracers” finds room in the rushing momentum of its final, wordless chorus for Rolling Stones harmonies, too.
The chiming synths and urgently climbing guitars are at their most euphoric on “My Eternal”. “All the saints are underground,” Marr sings, but the music conjures visceral visions of darting between future Manchester skyscrapers, as if in an optimist’s version of Blade Runner. Marr’s sources date him. So does his vision of rock as a transformative tool.
And then there is “Hi Hello”, an unexpectedly comfortable rest-stop in The Smiths’ sound-world. It’s a place as personal and complete as Jimmy Page’s thunderous production palette with Led Zeppelin, has few other parallels, and is Marr’s main claim to greatness. Perhaps for this reason, he has been reluctant to revisit it.
the INDEPENDENT!! thats FAKE NEWS CENTRAL
'an optimists version of blade runner'!!!!?? wtf DRAMAJ IS A DYSTOPIAN NOT
AN OPTIMIST! is this 'writer'on a 24 pub crawl?? FFS
here is an authentice review that makes perfect sense:
Call the Comet, his third solo album, is a muddled utopian dreamscape that once again proves that his craftsmanship may not be best suited to take centerstage.
this is true DramaJ is perhaps best suited to write clippity clop tunes with the bald
dude from the the
Looks like you're scraping the bottom of the negative review barrel. Did you write this one? I can go all day as I know there are a ton more positive reviews of Call the Comet. Like this one:
While there are nods to the past in the music, the tapestry of lyrics and sounds overall look to the future to illuminate what’s lacking in the present.
All in all, it’s a joy to experience. The opulent, bright and breezy opener ‘Rise’ hits you like sunstroke, as a sci-fi rock soundscape backs Marr calling upon the listener to “hear the truth”. Single ‘The Tracers’ is the perfect balance between his knack for pop and the cinematic mastery he’s demonstrated with pal Hans Zimmer, while the glam-stomp of T-Rex and a driving Britpop swagger makes ‘Hey Angel’ a gift of pure rock n’ roll satisfaction.
why bother with NME when you can post Die Spiegal!!!
yes will fill us with his truth about the Comet that he has commanded to blow us
up because one of DJ stoner acolytes was worried the price for weed went up in SF!!
Comet blow up and the restart the world with only stoners and weed. O COMET HEAR and OBEY DYTOPIC COMMAND!!
DramaJ is way out there. Now that the only comet that did show up was the Moz COMET OF SUCCESSFUL ALBUMS AND TOURS!! he may have to get a spaceship and drag the comet on over
to the earth. LOL what DJ insanity. Next album: 'Dragging the Comet to Earth for the Benefit of Stoners"
