      I half hoped his "follow up to Viva Hate" comment was an indication of the style of the album, but it seems to be a joke of sorts.

      "Each time you vote you support the process." What a fucking idiot he has become. Brand's influence has obviously been more significant than possibly could have been feared. Like Brand himself Morrissey seems to denounce democracy, as imperfect as it is, without putting forward an alternative.

      I suppose "The rich must profit and get richer / And the poor must stay poor." is Morrissey's version of "Imagine no possessions." just exchanging an agreeable Ascot pile with an LA mansion. I'm not sure if I could walk past a merchandising stall selling shirts at $35 a pop and then stand in an auditorium being told by the richest person in the room that the system doesn't work, without heckling. He's become a gobsmacking hypocrite.

      Musically WPINOYB is a plod. The vocal hook is OK, but the lyric is childlike in its naivety. Perhaps it will grow in stature when the studio version is released. A worrying taste of things to come. These are nervous times. He needs a return to form, and as an early indicator this is not very promising.

      Ok, on first listen I like the new songs, and to my surprise The Bullfighter Dies is my favorite. I like the melody, it's short , catchy and to the point.

      Earth , musically is a bit different from a traditional Moz song, but I quite like it ( Gustavo wrote this one maybe?). I don't agree with a previous poster comparing it to the Macarena, it made me lol though.

      I interpreted that more as a comment on how long ago it was since he released a record...

      Matt Walker Twitter "my first full show in nearly two nice to be back....a little chaos never hurt anyone.....or blood....battered but content."

      Blood?!? Delighted that he's back but I wonder what happened to the last drummer.

      When I saw the video so did I, when I read it here I was more hopeful.


      Question: would an unknown artist who wandered in off the street get a record deal on the strength of People Are The Same, Action, Looker, Scandinavia, Ganglord, Art-Hounds, World Peace, Loneliest Planet or Bullfighter?

      The Bullfighter dies and nobody cries, we all want the bull to survive.

      What a return to form!

      Of the new tracks, I really like 'The Bullfighter Dies' most of all, jangly, melodic and to the point. Lovely melody.
      'World Peace' has a good chord progression and melody and I think the studio recording will make it sound absolutely fantastic...I have some issues with some of the lyrics, a bit sixth form politics...'Each time you vote you support the process' not the most elegant line he's ever sung, but no doubt they will grow on me. The tempo is great, a bit different to some of his other stuff, variation is nice. I don't like Jessie's overdriven tone on absolutely everything they do.....I want more jangle and subtlety..

      On a final note, I like the spanish guitars and the feel of 'Earth Is The Loneliest Planet' fact when it kicked in, the first line sounded rather similar to my 'acoustic demo' that I put on here...yes it was me and I feel a sense of guilt for misleading people. The point is, it took me about a minute to 'write' that excerpt and ten seconds to record it through the internal mic of my macbook, using a fender telecaster strummed acoustically and my voice wailing away. Some of the comments on here made me laugh so much my face hurt..particularly the insults towards my attempt! It was fun while it lasted though, thanks for all the input and comments.

      They might as well wear t shirts that say" We fucking hate Wisconsin" he seems to be fond of ignoring Milwaukee since 2009.He used to go there pretty frequently.

      It's right up there with "How Now Brown Cow?"

      The fake demo versions I've heard on this website sound much better than the actual new songs.

      Is there a didgeridoo playing on the intro of WPINOYB??
