      I personally think each single is better than the previous single. It might be that the newest is just fresher to me, but this is starting to sound like an amazing covers album.

      which annoying comet song will DramaJ piggyback to the next successful Moz hit?o_O

      maybe Hooky can get in the action piggyback one of his awful computer chips on there too?:lbf:

      the Lawnmowers can have Hooky on another sucky documentary to finish up the proceedings.:horny:

      outrageous behavior by this team of twats:mad:

      Was really skeptical about how BJA’s voice would mesh but it’s excellent. I enjoy the production, sounds intentionally vintage, it’s pretty scooped as far as mids. This producer has mastered capturing Morrissey’s vocal. These are his strongest vocals maybe ever.

      I don't get Morrissey choosing this song. I wanted him to do a Brian Wilson. One of the weirder ones. Surfs Up maybe. It's more Los Angeles. Maybe he wants to give a nod to Gay Marriage.

      Its really well done and isn't it unusual and interesting to have a male/male love song - can you think of another where that dynamic is so clear? Morrissey is clearly pushing that aspect in his cover. In the original the name Bill is used only once at the start of the song but in this version Morrissey sings Bill over and over again. In doping so he is being explict about the gender of the object of his desire and and the other male voice adds to that further.

      Only listened on a tinny Samsung phone but am pleasantly surprised by how jaunty and upbeat these covers are, even if they are certainly done, but not overdone, with a heavy lashing of knowing irony. His voice sounds remarkable for someone pushing 60. His songwriting craft has dwindled but perversely his actual singing sounds better than ever. Ever the contrarian?
      Could be Morrissey's most consistent "longplayer" release in a while. Here's hoping.

      Quite like this. Wish he'd write original stuff in this style. Also, that's the most Smiths-y ending to one of his songs since 1987!

      obvious about his early 80s crush on snooker legend bill werbeniuk - dreadful either way , it really is over isn't it? my grandad goes to the wmc on a wed to watch acts do this sort of stuff- typical to sing a song where the 3 words -me -I - and you feature heavily as is the norm

      I realise we have those who absolutely feel the need to adore everything he releases, but here's a reality check. That's shit, It was shit when it was first released as a song by whatever gobshite felt the need, and age as done the song no favours, or Morrissey come to that, it's beyond bollocks, lift music of the worst order, really not very good at all, I hope he's taking the piss I hope in years to come in autobiography II he admits it was a bet with Boz to see if he could get a positive reaction for absolutely anything they did, and admits this was the worse thing they could come up with. I mean who? what the fuck what are you thinking? are you thinking? and I mean you lot as well as him, get a grip, absolute shite.
