      Thanks for the scans.
      It looks like his best record since Quarry at least.
      And it's probably better.
      World Peace an improved America is not the World.
      Istanbul an improved I'm not Sorry.
      Kick the Bride an improved Lazy Dykes.
      All that was missing was a killer single, but that is what Kiss Me a Lot will be.

      Earth is not filler, it's a fine song. And "Late Morrissey" is awfully depressing. Just dig the 55- year old's grave.

      Just purely in terms of reviews, ROTT got at least two five-star reviews in major publication. Not saying that to dampen anyone's enthusiasm, but to point out that Morrissey does have critical successes within the last decade to live up to.

      Another excellent review, looking forward to hearing the full album.

      Good point. It is hard to fully appreciate the songs released so far until they are in the context of the album as a whole. When I first heard 'all you need is me' I thought it was fairly weak. But it made more sense as part of Refusal. Strange but true, for me at least.

      Nice to read a review with positive comments about the band's musical contribution.

      So, again we have some reviewer throwing out positives about the upcoming release. Based on what has been released and played so far, there is now way this will compare to anything close to Morrissey's glory years of Viva Hate, etc.

      Had a listen to "I Know Very Well How I Got My Name" yesterday, and I was thinking, the current Morrissey could never write anything like this--and the accompanying music is stellar.

      His band is horrible--no matter how you want to look at things; quit drinking the Kool-Aid and think for yourself.

      For me, the most interesting thing about the reviews is that each one of them praises a different song. For Uncut it's Smiler With Knife, for Q it's Oboe Concerto and for Mojo it's Staircase at the University and Mountjoy. That's awesome...

      if it's any good, it's better than Quarry

      I remember NME calling The National Front Disco filler (never been sure whether to take that at face value or not).

      You seem to be drinking your own private reserve of Kool-Aid made with urine. Jesus.

      "Earth" is a work of art. Simple lyrics with big meanings, crescendo vocals and music. Harp, finger-sliding keyboard, a gentle acoustic strum introducing a noisy guitar solo. Even Kristeen Young did her part.

      Well said. Moz and I will be enjoying the vegan-friendly moscato. I bet the sugar in FAN's urine Kool-Aid is made from GMO beets.

      I am really looking forward to the album and judging by the four tracks released so far I think it's going to be great and very different. "Earth is the loneliest planet", by the way, is a fantastic track, in no way a filler but obviously everyone will have their own favorites.

      Great review of the album, well put together, going by the tracks so far, a very heart felt album, saying what he feels, wish there was a queen is dead finally though : )

      Just aching to hear this now.

      Thank you for scanning.

      Interesting what he says about 'Smiler With Knife', best song on the album...
      The anticipation is killing me!

      The current Morrissey wouldn't write that song today because he knows he wrote it already. I love kool aid. It's delicious.

      Also, can you please tell me how to think for myself.
