      but it does suggest that the writer had a pervious agenda before writing the review. So is he going to give an unbiased review after he already wished that the artist was dead? Of course not.

      Morrissey has a 'pervious agenda' also with his current obsession with oral sex with new songs like 'Lick My Lap', 'Bigmouth Opens Wide To Receive Again' and 'Open Your Thighs And I'll Kneel Down on You.' Hopefully one of his upcoming (no pun intended) b-sides will be a cover of 'Sit On My Face and Tell Me That You Love Me.'

      falconneil I said the exact same thing at the start of this post,their is no way this was an unbiased review,he had it in for mozz from the start,what if the other reviews are 8s and 9s then this so called reviewer is going to look like a right fool.

      Never heard this story, but that doesn't change anything. One's entertainment choices have nothing to do with one's artistical output. And of course it's har dif not impossible to break new ground in general in pop music, it's hiw OWN comfort zone and self-hallenge that counts.

      I don't really have a problem with this reviewer saying that it would have been better for Morrissey's legacy had Morrissey kicked the bucket earlier - it's tacky and ultimately selfish but he's just acknowledging a not too uncommon feeling fans may have about their fallen idols - the same thing was said about Bowie back in the 90's.

      The problem I have with that review is that when the reviewer offers such a skewed interpretation of earlier lyrics to begin his review, ("laugh track" "celebrating 13 year old cop killers" "molesting students " still scratching my head about that one!), it makes it hard not to wonder if he's doing the same in the rest of the review. But it may just be the reviewers style - he seems to have an all or nothing approach in his reviews - well at least this one and the World Peace one. I haven't bothered to look up any of his other reviews.

      ROTT sucked.

      But yes, his new stuff (after YATQ) has been generally lousy.
