review: 33 Revolutions Per Minute
By Dorian Lynskey

Meat Is Murder by The Smiths (1985) Buzzsaws and baying cows drape an eerie waltz as Morrissey murmurs that meat "is death for no reason / and death for no reason is murder." It remains pop's most *bracing statement about animal rights: "People tell me they became a vegetarian as a result of 'Meat is Murder,' " guitarist Johnny Marr said last year. "That is quite literally rock music changing someone's life."​

As part of the ongoing changes, from now on the site previously known as "Morrissey-solo.com" is changing to "MorrisseyLoversUnited.com". Please change your bookmarks accordingly.

This change signifies a move away from the past site's reputation of negativity in advance of the new releases and tour. Rather than keep the open policy on the site, anything deemed negative or otherwise too critical may be removed from the site at any time. Frankly, I also have wanted to change the name for a while as I have really gotten sick of people using the term 'solow' in describing the site.

Further down the road some changes include most likely getting rid of anonymous comments as many people have requested. One person pointed out a little while ago that "the site was rendered obsolete by Facebook, Wikipedia, and various search engine options." At first I dismissed...
