"California Son" review in Metro (3/5 stars)

Reads more like a 4/5 ending:
"Moreover, he seems energised by it all. The interpretations are for the most part sensitive, distinctively his own, and in a couple of cases — Buffy Sainte-Marie’s Suffer The Little Children (an intentional Smiths echo); Lenny’s Tune by Tim Hardin — approach the definitive. It seems to have done Morrissey a rare power of good to deal, for a change, with things he actually likes. "

It's the second review here after The Waterboys - www.metro.news/music-reviews-the-waterboys-where-the-action-is/1567373/ (3 of 5 stars)

That's a nicely written review. (I suspect they've taken a star off because of...you know.)

(Also, hurrah for Mike Scott and his wandering, rambling, neverending Waterboys project!)

One of the best reviews so far, very well written. Thank you for your insight David Bennun.


at least we now know it's somewhere between 1/10 and 9/10
