This album is awesome......Morrissey is on fire.

I was a small, fat child in a welfare house.
There was only one thing I ever dreamed about
And fate has just handed it to me - whoopee


----------------------------------------

I was driving my car,
I crashed and broke my spine,
So yes, there are things worse in life than
never being someone's sweetie.

That interview with The One has to be one of the most awkward I've seen.

Is this generally a good album to buy for people who have never heard Morrissey before? I've never heard any of his solo albums (or The Smiths, for that matter), but have been wanting to get into his music for a while. Should I buy this album, or get a different one?

I have no idea whether or not this is a good entry point or not, but it couldn't possibly be better than The Smiths' self-titled or The Queen Is Dead. Get those, ASAP, if you haven't done so already.

I think it is essential that The Smiths should be listened to prior to any Morrissey. It would be kind of awkward to listen to Morrissey first and then The Smiths. I'd find it that way. There is something appealingly polished and perfected about Morrissey's solo material that might make The Smiths seem a little rustic and less immediate to appreciate. Almost off-putting.

Lyrically Morrissey is much more forward and blatant now, not a bad thing, yet there is something more cryptic and deligtfully confusing about his lyrics with The Smiths, and I think that the first album or the Singles compilation should be a newbie's entry point into the legend that is Morrissey; so that they can begin thinking about the emotions Morrissey was feeling and what sentiments he was trying to express, rather than just being handed some of it on a plate when listening to his post-2004 material.

The Smiths self-titled is the second worst thing he's ever released

Get Queen is Dead by the Smiths or Vauxhall and I for Morrissey solo

I agree with has already been said, get Queen Is Dead first.

Okay, I'll look for that album next time I'm at the cd store. I already checked Itunes and Amazon Digital MP3s, neither of them had it.

I enjoyed those interviews.

I guess I need this record, then?

And I guess I need to call in to work sick and see the show in Abq, then? I think I need to go.

I think that The Smiths' "Singles" compilation would be the best place to start; to me, The Smiths are stronger when dealing with singles than with albums as a whole. From there, try Morrissey's "Bona Drag" as an example of his early work and "You Are the Quarry" for his later work.

Wow, I think it's wonderful. Just really great pop music.

The self-titled Smiths album is great. Some truly cracking song on there, namely Suffer Little Children, This Charming Man, Hand In Glove ("The sun shines out of our behinds!") AND Still Ill.
