    Posted by an anonymous person in the thread Official reviews for California Son:

    The first review is out!

    It's from Uncut. Can't quite see the score here but it's pretty positive and reads like a 7 or 8/10.
    Interestingly, I think Uncut published the first review of Low in High School with a damning score (possibly 5/10) and the conclusion that it was his worst since Kill Uncle.
    Please add other reviews to this thread (although there probably won't be many for another few 3 or 4 weeks).

      I agree that "A Song From Under The Floorboards" and "No One Can Hold A Candle To You" were great. The Jam song and the Johnny Thunders song were really good, too.
      What I've heard of this new record might make more sense if the songs were part of a film soundtrack or something. They aren't bad but there is kind of a novelty feeling to it and it doesn't seem like "the new Morrissey record."

      Was there an argument?
