'His best since 'Vauxhall and I', and will be known as his Israel album.' Line from 'Israel': "They bitch and moan because they are not like you". Oh dear.

Morrissey comes out in support of the powerful Zionist settler-colonial oppressor and it's unceasing land grab ."Who Will Protect Us From The Israel 'Defense' Force". Isn't he plucky.
i just managed to get a promo and it is a great album. Much better than the previous one. He gets rid of the guitar wall of sound, a lot of keyboard and atmospheric sound. I bury the living is one of the best of the album. Israel is a little too melodramatic for me with its military drumroll.
I think you're onto something. He hasn't come up with a Smiths-worthy sound in decades. Not to say that it's necessarily always a bad thing, just the facts, musically speaking.
But hey, all the Millennials I know are all about the entire Smiths discog, and couldn't name 3 Morrissey songs. Including any of the hits, IE: Sunday etc. So I agree that there seems to be a concerted effort to sell to casual Smiths fans.
You will never get the album you're cravingI cant stand his band, it's cabaret cruise ship shite. The music is arguably worse than the lyrics, too many cooks, too convoluted, just a noisy mess. Moz needs to ditch his band and start over. THEN we might get the album we've all been craving.
By all means I'm happy to be getting new music from the guy. I was a child when I first heard him, and now I have a child of my own, am approaching my own middle age, and there's still Morrissey albums? Nice.I'm not going to try to argue that the new material is on par with The Smiths; however, I've found myself having Spent the Day in Bed and Jacky's Only Happy getting stuck in my head. Naturally this may just be a personal problem, but I'd venture to say he's written some catchy tunes this time around.
In any case (and this is in no way in response to your post), shouldn't we just be happy we're getting any album/any new material at this stage of the game? It doesn't provide carte blanche to release dreck, but I don't think that's what we're going to get.
Ha!!!! ;-)By all means I'm happy to be getting new music from the guy. I was a child when I first heard him, and now I have a child of my own, am approaching my own middle age, and there's still Morrissey albums? Nice.
As for catchy- Yes, he's definitely crafted some insidious earworms this time around.
Regarding catchy as far as Spent the Day in Bed though- Syphilis is also catchy, but I don't like the though of that, either.
You could say Tony the Pony, and Sing Your Life. The live shows of that time, energetic as they were- were goofy as shit, with Boz and Alain duckwalking all over the place, the upright bass stuff, and overall way it was presented.Is there even "lumpen rockabilly" on Kill Uncle?
