    Morrissey A-Z: "Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together"

    I love the tone and sincerity of his voice here and it is a wonderful song that has held up well. Some people have said that it seems a surprising theme (the idea of Johnny being suicidal or pushed around in the music industry after the split) - but I think it aligns well with Morrissey's...

    Think the interview was in '92 - before Billy Budd.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Ammunition"

    This is basically the story of Moz' solo career - that beautiful voice (and his talent for vocal melodies) carrying so many songs with such plodding backing. Really shows you what he brings to the table.

    Morrissey A-Z: "America Is Not the World"

    Really poor. One of his worst songs.

    Break up the family

    I'd say "Yes" to both of those, but none of the rest. :LOL:

    Autobio is fantastic, well worth checking out.

    Poll What should Morrissey do next?

    It was an unedited cringeworthy mess - which was really surprising because Autobio was excellent.

    Poll What should Morrissey do next?

    LOTL was so appalling that I'm hugely wary of M writing fiction. Maybe some essays or short stories or something but nothing similar to LOTL.

    Drop the music for a while and start work on volume 2 of the Autobio.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Ambitious Outsiders"

    Getting back at society - by killing their children, yeah. Dark.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Ambitious Outsiders"

    It's a creepy inversion of Suffer Little Children. Dark, atmospheric, not something I'd really want to listen to.

    Break up the family

    I can easily see M wanting to veil the meaning of certain songs, it's what he does. I think he was angry and emotional when he wrote it and time dilutes those emotions, he probably felt differently later on. The sentiment in those songs ranges from "I love you / I'll be here when everyone else...

    In the land of Boz

    The clumsy lyrics kill Art-Hounds for me (fat aunt Mabel, really?) but weirdly - I love Scandinavia! It's just very different, very theatrical. And yeah, LIHS is an embarrassment. In my head, I've just wiped it from his discography.

    Break up the family

    I think it's both. When you suffer losses, it's natural to look back on your life and wonder if a 'pattern' is forming - you mull over previous failures and problems and what you might have done differently, like he does in Friday Mourning. This part: The strange logic in your clumsiest line...

    Morrissey A-Z: 'All The Lazy Dykes'

    Slow, plodding filler.
