“Hated for loving”…If Amanda Palmer knew anything about Morrissey she would have privately faxed him. Cringe.
At first, I thought “Evil Urges….worst….no way!” but then i realized that after having it for 5 years, and I still don’t listen to it, “yeah Okay”. I agree that “Okonokos” is the best entry point to MMJ, and In a more perfect world, it would be the “Frampton Comes Alive” of our generation, because it really is a masterpiece. I really don’t listen to the first 2 albums as much as i should, gonna remedy that now.
trying to think a name for their band,, I’m liking “T-King Melon-case” . i look forward to this!
I’m a huge Morrissey fan btw, I hink the point here is WHAT WAS HE GOING TO SING ANYWAY in late night talk show land? a 5 year old “Throwing my arms around paris”? A hooped up smiths number? one of the maybe 3 new songs he’s been hawking live for the previous 3 tours? Maybe he’s saving himself while staying typically nutty in the press.
okay all kidding aside, stereogum’s lists are always controversial to hardcore fans of the bands they are ranking (my feelings on the morrissey list are best kept to myself). My opinion here is: Vespertine truly deserves to be her best, after that album, i just stopped listening or caring about Bjork BECAUSE Vespertine actually touched me so much and i never fully understood her subsequent material. I do on one hand strangely like the 1977 album, just for it’s pure innocent weirdness. I mean, disco and a cover of “the fool on the hill” In Icelandic? what’s not to like. also, yeah, where is “Glin-glo” and the Selma song’s (noteworthy for a duet with Thom Yorke).. I’ve seen her live twice, once around the time of “Post” and again in support of “Volta” and both times, her ensemble carried her, and she went on and on in the press about her voice being fucked up. still, it was cool.
hey…isn’t she that chick that wore the dead swan to the oscars?
at least billy corgan didn’t write this one.
I liked it the first time when it was called “My dick in a box”. (insert .gif ftw)
even though ‘…Bombs’ is a comp., i think it’s a whopper of a set list, sequenced really well and deservedly at the top of any list.
I don’t think i deserve my own thread really, but as my favorite band i can neither agree or disagree with this list. i have never had to defend my love for the smiths to any friends, because i have disowned anyone that opposes what a great band they were.
i was also gonna say ‘wonder what stereogum would say about morrissey’s best to worst would look like, but didn’t we already do that and ‘Kill Uncle’ was undeniably last? eh?
i was gonna say roughly the same thing, every smiths album is the best they ever made, and if you are a hater, the worst of course, but they are my favorite band of all time. period.
“PS I Rape Me”
they are both ‘leftys’. obvious choice. now, get ready for ‘Pennyroyal lane’
this is very good news. why don’t they get tanya donelly on board and tour with a reunited Belly too, and play the first album as well…shit that would be 90′s chick rock overload!
just realized that i amj drunk
I’m just happy that it is finally to come out of the closet and say that i like both Qeensryche and R.kelly. today is a good day, i’m going to go gt drunk.
can’t believe “don’t come home with your hard on” didn’t get a nod.
he didn’t write that. odd, because it’s one of my favorites.
great list, yeah how can you rank them..the good ones.I’m actually affectionate after this list, it would be more Stereogummy to list say ’10 worst big start songs’.
well hard rain is on here. i just don’t see ho any Dylan album can be obscure though really, they are all 4.99 in my local shop, except for the Christmas album, which is oddly like 15 bucks.
how is slow train obscure? it won grammys and has mark knoffler on it!! “saved” is not on here? if you want obscure Dylan albums then we are talking bootlegs, an that is a whole ‘nother list. Street Legal is a great disc by the way, remaster or not.
I’ve gotten in the habit of reading the introduction, and i must say..polvo and versus..sonic youth tribute bands? i think versus would be much more of a mission of burma cover act, and polvo..can’t compare them to sonic youth, you could even do a count down of their albums..not a clanger in there!!! (cool list here by the way, would have put “bad moon a bit higher over the newer albums)
i like the new format. lists of lists. powah to the people.
