from the Ice Age to the dole age
True. There have been times in Moz' career (particularly 1995-2005) when it seemed like he released 30 songs with identical backing, they were so unbelievably 'samey'. I like Alain but he got really, really lazy as time wore on.This song is absolutely flipping brilliant! It's the least indie thing Morrissey's ever done and all the better for it.
Reviewing these songs has just reminded me how much thin gruel Morrissey had to work with in the 1995-2010 period.
