Ringleader of the Tormentors... I mostly like all of his work -with The Smiths & solo, but this one was just dull
....I personally could just not Take to "Southpaw"...I sold it after giving it more than a fair hearing....But maybe its aged well???....I might try it again someday....
Me too. Love it.
I don't listen to his last two that much. In fact, when they both came out, I listened to ROTT a lot more than I have YoR.
Scarlet, I was going to say re: Vauxhall & I... REALLY!?????? blasphemy!
Yeah, me too. With the added songs and the reordering of the tracks I love it even more now, though I still think it would have been better if Southpaw was still the final track. Also, the new cover picture and liner notes vastly improve it in my eyes.Wasn't too keen on Southpaw until the remaster and reissue in 2009 - I now love it.
