Young The Giant review in The Observer references Morrissey

The album, and Morrissey's endorsement, was slated in the Observer yesterday:

Young the Giant: Young the Giant – review by Paul Mardles (2 of 5 stars)


As his regard for bands such as the long-forgotten Bradford and the thuggish Cockney Rejects attests, Morrissey has never been the greatest judge of talent. The latest recipients of his praise are Young the Giant, a California five-piece whose derivative indie rock is as tame as much of Mozzer's own recent work. Sometimes they sound like an anaemic Coldplay; at others they're a sweatier version of the Shins. Frontman Sameer Gadhia has a distinctive voice but, aside from the radiant "Apartment", even he can't furnish Young the Giant's debut with a spirit that is unmistakably their own

Bit of a harsh review. Not the greatest album I've ever heard by a long chalk but three would have been fairer. Two is just meanspirited. "My Body" is a pretty decent tune.

They make a fair point. With the exception of Suede, I don't think Morrissey's ever backed anybody who's been any good. In fact, he usually attacks those who are up there with him.

You're given credit for it here, at least.
For that, I am grateful. It's the anonymous knob heads that get my goat round here, not the admin :)

I notice you went into the www.morrisseysworld.blogspot.com chat room earlier david and stole the articles on that site without crediting them here. You, sir, are a total hypocrite.

you also advertised your site over there and delete messages mentioning morrisseysworld here.

What's with the Morrissey-Solo bashing again? I went to the morrisseysworld website and the bashing continues there too. Solo is the only non-partisan site...whether you love him or hate him, the site doesn't take sides. AND...it's been around longer than some fans were born. I don't get.

Tell me about it! Worse than high school! BUT , David Tseng is a decent sort and is a fair and understanding person. Never have we read of any animosity from David regarding other sites. He has been his own best moderator and we admire his free speech stance, done so with malice towards none. High time we all realize that and say Thanks David for this site.
