It's always quite polarising but never this polarising. The same goes for the reviews in the media. Today, the Times gave it 1/5 and the Telegraph gave it 4/5. I don't think I've ever known any album to get such widely varying scores.To longtimers here...this is my first experience here when a new album drops. Is it always this polarizing or is this unique? I'm still digesting the album. Too soon to give a verdict. It's not bubblegum, It's deeper so I think it takes time to absorb. There's no way it's his "worst album" as some are histrionically belching. Some folks are so eager to see Moz kill his career they are embarrassing themselves with this silliness.
Yes, a lot of people round here do genuinely hate Morrissey, a man who, ultimately, is just a pop star. There are a few pop stars who I have similar feelings towards but, the difference is, I wouldn't waste a single second of my spare time following or discussing them on their websites. You've got to pity these clowns really. The amount of time they've spent on the website of a pop star they hate will surely be a major deathbed regret.
