Morrissey retreats back into his childish worldview on his nasty and spiteful new album.


Excerpt:

"I wonder what Morrissey makes of that new Christmas ad for a well-known British retailer which features a rather large monster called Moz living under a kid’s bed? Moz the Monster turns out to be a nice bloke but the same can’t be said for Morrissey on his spiteful and distorted eleventh album.

The faithful have long struggled to remain patient with their wayward hero and his more, well, monstrous outbursts over the last few decades. He has long played fast and loose on songs with questionable undertones and flirted with the right-wing boot boys of the National Front in England and, more recently, voiced what looked like support for Ukip.

Then again, this is a man who has often valued animal rights over human life. The very humanity and empathy that made Morrissey a beacon for the lost and lonely all those years ago has been slowly ebbing away for a long time now."
