I don't really like Morrisseys solo stuff that much but it'd still like to see him live cos i know he plays some Smiths stuff so that would be amazing to see.

I can't help you with that but it's only 3:08 so you didn't miss that much :S.

Do you have the album? You should buy it there are much better songs on it than you have killed me!

You mean does Morrissey can be gentle and kind? Yes, i can hear it in his voice in almost every song. It is just ...ibelieve he was very much hurt in the past so he is expressing it through irony and sometimes even heavy ironybut still... its a powerful line(it takes strength to be gentle and kind) .It means it takes strength for kindness depite all shity things and people!Just my opinion....

I don't think that everyone who loves irony or sarcasm has been hurt in the past... but that's my opinion. There are definitely times when he can be gentle and kind... especially when he's not on stage! I guess he needs the right person to open himself... Jeez, I sound like a psychiatrist!

After numerous listens, I'm going to have to admit that I'm disappointed with Ringleader of the Tormentors. It's catchy, the songs are enjoyable, the music is good, but it just flat out seems lazy in terms of Morrissey-esque songwriting. Where's the humor? Where's the sarcasm? Where's the cleverness? I don't even mind that it's not negative, etc. I've personally never really found The Smiths or Morrissey to be all that depressing. I miss the humor, the clever lines, the unique wordplay. None of it is really there in this album, and that's usually all I want from a Morrissey album.

Is it still enjoyable to listen to? Yes. Is the backing music great? Yes. Is Morrissey's song writing great? Not for him. Would I like it if it wasn't Morrissey? Not so sure.

I definitely disagree. From the first moment i was deeply moved by beauty on this album. I felt like i really found real strength and it is a very powerful album in m. opinion. I completely understand what you are trying to say. (humor, wordplay). But,....if Moz feel happiness after all (i just might with a smile on my face aftter all . i guess you miss lines like this one),,,,i found that powerful too.
As for irony... On the streets i ran i can read irony and also in few other songs. But there is a beauty, and strength and i can relate very much to it. (even though i coudnt be more far from happinnes at the moment)
