Text is very small, so transcribed it - punctuation (give or take some eye strain) as per the writer.
Transcribed by myself:
"He who cannot be mentioned is releasing an album. No, not Laurence Fox but Steven Patrick Morrissey, but he'd likely be as controversial on Question Time. If you hadn't noticed, he's a bit of a pariah around these parts. Banished by townsfolk to his LA apartment to think seriously about what he's done and consider before he speaks.
Like that will ever happen. He is a law unto himself and always has been. The dame is not for turning. Well except musically perhaps. Because this, his 13th album (unlucky for some) is quite the left turn.
Dear reader, this writer genuinely believed he'd pressed play on the wrong album because it arrived with a scatter gun synthetic drum beat and keyboard like an early Prodigy record but then in comes that oh so recognisable baritone on 'Jim Jim Falls'. As has become de rigueur, you could take his lyrics about suicide literally however he's never written solely from his own perspective. 'Love Is On Its Way Out' is a little more traditional latter Moz fare, naturally he talks about his favourite subject, animals, and in this case big game trophy hunting.
Lead single 'Bobby, Don't You Think They Know' with co-lead vocals from Mowtown legend Thelma Houston, is a little bloated but has gospel Charlatans-esque organ, roaring guitars and saxaphone.
The title track is perhaps the best thing on it, a sprawling effort, it begins with a verse that you can imagine being a musical number, the protagonist imploring that he's not a dog on a chain and he has his own brain.
Closing track 'My Hurling Days Are Done' harks back to The Smiths lyrical style, as does much of the record, sometimes abstract or metaphorical but with wit and sardonic forked tongue.
Looks can be deceiving but it would appear that Morrissey has gone full circle and returned to the point where his solo career was born, right in the middle of the electropop boom of the mid to late 80's.
The likelihood is that most people won't listen to this record on its merits and there are many, arguably his strongest collection in years. His voice is at its peerless best on his most interesting and diverse songs, possibly ever. Regardless of what you think about him, unless you're steeped in "cancel" culture, give this LP a go.
It will surprise you."
