Every time I hear "Friday Mourning," I am astounded that it was left off Quarry. The song is spell-binding, with some excellent lyrical work, even by Moz's standards.

I can't stand half of it, some of the songs are just plain bad. Plus all but one song that was on Hatful of Hollow was a million times better than the versions on the debut

Although Kill Uncle is a hundred times worse

I downloaded all 4 studio albums from The Smiths. So far, I've only listened to The Queen Is Dead, but I love it - Morrissey has a great voice, and the songs are excellent.

If his solo work is this good, I'll definitely be buying the new album.

Well, you know, Moz's solo stuff is an entirely different beast. But once you like his voice and lyrical approach, I think that it is a safe bet that you will also enjoy his solo work.

3 things:

1. He's on Jimmy Fallon's stupid show tonight
2. I still haven't listened to the album, though I bought it the day it came out
3. This is pointless, but still made me laugh: MORRISSEY DANCE!

A little bigger but not much..



Considering buying tickets tomorrow to his show. I was a huge Smiths fan years ago (teenage years) and still listen today, but have not gotten into Morrissey's new stuff yet. I regret not seeing the Smiths when I had the chance so I think it would be fun to see him now. I guess I need to go get the album and check it out!

I saw him last night in Milwaukee and he sounded fantastic. He nearly started a riot when he threw his perspiration-soaked shirt into the crowd; it took three bouncers to break up the entanglement. "This Charming Man," which assumed a hard-rocking edge, and "Seasick, Yet Still Docked" were the highlights for me.

The setlist included quite a few rarities and lesser-known tracks, for instance "I Keep Mine Hidden," "The Loop," and "Billy Budd." As far as Smiths numbers go, "This Charming Man," "How Soon Is Now," and "Ask" were all very well-received. In my opinion, the show's energy waned a bit in the second half, which was heavy on Years of Refusal material. The performances were great, but it was apparent that a large percentage of the crowd was not familiar with anything post-Vauxhall & I. Moz sounded great though, and seemed to be enjoying himself.
