While we wait for the new album to arrive (hopefully next year) let us go about rating the songs we know, on a daily basis. And instead of chronologically, let's do them alphabetically.

Voting should be something like:
10: Classic
9: Near classic, fucking brilliant anyway
8: Really good Moz/Smiths song
7: Good Moz/Smiths song
6: Decent, OK, Nothing special
5: Moz/Smiths by numbers
4: Poor
3: Bad
2: Should never have been released
1: He/They should be ashamed

We've already had:
1) A Rush And A Push And The Land Is Ours, Score So Far: 8.90 (31 votes)

Boycott Moz

been listening to his a lot lately (along with the other ROTT b-sides). an excellent choice to cover, and Moz gives a great performance.

Morrissey mentioned in his recent "True To You" Q&A that he has often thought of putting out an album of covers but he has always decided against it. Personally, I think that such an album might be one of his best ever - his taste in cover versions are usually impeccable. This is a perfect example. His take on Magazine's song is wonderful - better than the original. He always rephrases the lines that demand rephrasing - such as Magazine's original "I have to confess I'm proud as hell of that fact" which he changes to "And I must confess I'm very proud of that" - which is much nicer on the ears. The band does a great job with the music too. Easily an 8.
