    New Article about Moz and his career in the early 90s. Nice to read something actually positive.

      He needs a player like Johnny to bring out the best in him.‘
      o_O

      Then why was Morrissey only able to have hits after Marr?

      First solo album was epic - songs partly written whilst Smiths still existed perhaps and have gorgeous Vini Reilly music and guitars all over them.

      Kill Uncle and Nevin co-written singles were much weaker and poorly produced, could not go up against The Stone Roses, James or Happy Monday’s sound of ‘89-91, sadly.

      Your Arsenal was do or die, if it had been weak he was over, he has said so himself. He pulled it out of the bag, a stone dead classic.

      We do not really need an “impartial Journalist” to tell us this. Especially when they gloss over “National Front Disco” lyrics that look very concerning in light of last 3 years of statements. I know it’s a lightweight amusing song but it does fortell the future somewhat. To my memory he was never challenged on it at the time and journalists assumed he was writing as an observer or “in character.” That assumption would not be made now.

      You cannot trust Dodwell, she’s a Morrissey staffer!

      Why is it that people always reference The Smiths as his best work?

      Yes, exactly. Goes to show what people know, very little.

      They know what they like, and you don't hear anybody singing the praises of I'm Ok by Myself, or Whirled Peas.

      It appears the article was edited after the fact. My initial quote above was copied directly from it when I made my post.

      What’s ‘whirled peas’?

      I try to like his solo outings and I still love him because he's Morrissey. His voice needs that guitar though. He was made for it. The way he played with that guitar. His voice was made for it. He needs a damn good player who's intent on writing music for the sake of it. He always came to the studio alone. He needs someone who's not writing for Morrissey but writing for themselves,

      But Skinny,
      Morrissey could've been (for the most part) out of this controversy if last April, after seeing the response to his support for For Britain, he'd dropped the subject entirely. If he just wants people to forget about it, why does he look for any excuse to bring it back up? If he only cares about the money, why hasn't he- seeing that this isn't a profitable opinion to have- drop For Britain and start pandering more to his audiences?
      If he didn't keep talking politics, there'd be nothing to divert attention from. As you say, he's not stupid. He knows that when he wears the badge of that controversial party on Jimmy Fallon, he's going to face this kind of backlash. Why would he do it, then, if he wanted to avoid the backlash?

      I seem to remember a bit of controversy about NFD in a few music mags. This was also around the time of the Union Jack on stage incident so some people were making those comparisons.

      Which came first? The ‘controversy’ :rolleyes:about NFD or the ‘Union Jack on stage incident’ ?

      It was brilliant though. Wembley Arena and Kilburn National in 91 were amazing gigs.

      Dodwell has penned it. Ok. I’ll not bother reading it then.

      Who wants to read a sycophant re-evaluate an album I know better than they do?

      Not me.

      The Kill Uncle tour was probably his most successful to date, so no, he was not dead despite mostly lukewarm critics of Kill Uncle, which was praised by Les Inrockuptibles in France for instance.
