Starved Of Mirth
I really like the music here, but of course it's missing the Morrissey vocal that would have made it absolutely perfect. I really wish Morrissey had bothered to add vocals. Such a pity... I give it a 7, since it is a nice composition, but oh what could have been. :(

10. this may be the best song that steve was ever involved with

The music is great, and it's even better live.
I gave it a 9 because Oscillate Wildly is a 10, even though I miss Moz's vocals in that one, but not in Money Changes Everything.

To think that this song is credited as Marr/Morrissey. Puah. It's Marr, Rourke & Joyce here ;)

I love it - even without the vocals. A solid 9 from me.

Here's what Simon Goddard wrote:
"Morrissey had no involvement with the track whatsoever (bar its portentous title), though claimed a joint composer credit. As Stephen Street speculates, his estrangement may well have been a reflection on the return of John Porter himself. ..."


Forever Ill
a 5

Marr has gotten enough space in songs for freewheeling, this song is
therefore unnecessary, like 'the draize train',and 'Oscillate Wildly'...
A Smiths song needs voice

I knew that. But after all we're on morrissey-solo.
Even the shittiest Morrissey solo songs get a few tens, but if there's a great tune without Moz vocals, it means nothing.
But i knew that.


Is It Really So Strange
This one gets an 8 from me only because someone made a mix tape for me and this song was on there.
I really love this song. I know it doesn't have a vocal but I think that's what makes it so amazing. It doesn't need it, it's quality and it stands on its own. Oh, Johnny Marr, I love you.

Well I Wonder

Now, Today, Tomorrow.....
Meh....... Ok as far as instrumentals go I suppose.​
