It would have been poorer had Teenage Dad not been on. His best b-side for years. In my opinion. I can't be arsed looking right now, but what has been left off that could have gone on? It would also be interesting to know how the co-writing credits split up on the tracks.

it's a pretty good selection. well done Moz!
only criticism is the inclusion off all the ROTT b-sides which were generally not great. I Am Two People would've been better. glad to see none of those latter day Quarry b-sides got on. they were dire!

but on this album we have 6 or 7 genuinely great songs (which we haven't had on a Morrissey album for many years).

Thanks for posting the track listing :thumb:. I would personally have replaced the Bowie cover with "Public Image". Not many artists out there can put out a B sides compilation album that's so strong :guitar:. I hope he gets good reviews for that. Well I wouldn't hold my breath though. Can't wait to see the art work now. :)

Too many tracks from the YATQ bonus disc, even if in the Spin tracklisting they're listed as "album version" (probably this means they will be some seconds longer...).

Thanks - I thought that might be the case. Good bloke, Alain.

Is Drive in Saturday the live cover or did I miss something and there is a studio version?

I'm optimistic about the reviews. There's so much more imagination (musically and lyrically) in many of these songs than on the recent studio albums.
The last three albums have all scored 70 something (out of 100) on Meta Crritic (which gives a weighted average of music press and newspaper reviews). Reckon Swords could get 80 altho the ROTT b-sides could drag it down...

It's live, you didn't miss anything.

Did anyone see this?

How very odd - 8 tracks never before released - what could they be out of this list?

Peter

I believe these are the tracks:
Black Cloud
I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris
One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell
Girlfriend In A Coma
You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby
Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want
When Last I Spoke To Carol
I'm OK By Myself
