Find Me On:
No offense to Stephen Street – he’s a great producer – but imagine how much better the album would have been if Andy Partridge had stuck around.
“Morrissey Pitching a Fit: Worst to Best.”
I hate the fact that “Naked” gets so little respect. The first half of that album, in my opinion, is dynamite. Side two is kind of bland, although I love “Facts of Life.” Stylistically, it’s probably more interesting that anything they had done since “Remain in Light” and is an interesting peek at Byrne’s rising solo career. “True Stories” should be at the bottom. “Love for Sale” and “Puzzlin’ Evidence” are terrific, but that’s where it ends for me. Just sayin.’
Oh, Morrissey. We get it. Thatcher was evil. Billy Bragg says the same thing, but with 100 times more focus, clarity and intelligence. Can you please go back to hating people who eat meat?
Was he driving DALI’S CAR?
For the record, I just turned 44.
I realize that this is all just a matter of opinion, and everyone’s favorite top ten is different, but…out of ten songs, TWO of them from “Join Us” seems odd.
I’m not a fan of the “best songs” list. The “Worst to Best Albums” is much more fun and seems to generate more productive bickering. Plus, a lot of the bands you profile are more album-oriented.
Nobody has the right to sound this awesome at age 66. I’m completely digging this.
When is Bob Mould *not* awesome? God, I love that guy.
Morrissey, upset at Kimmel “ridiculing depression?” Heard any Morrissey song titles lately?
Thanks, Stereogum! For a minute there, I forgot he was a singer and not just a whiny complainer.
A “worst to best Morrissey albums” list would be fun.
Looks like we posted our replies at the same time.
“Now My Heart Is Full” is there, at number eight.
Uh, what I meant to say was “It’s Hard” above “Who Are You?”
Not bad, but “Who Are You” above “It’s Hard?” I’ll take a sluggish Moon over Kenney Jones in his prime any day. Also, I feel like “Who By Numbers” should be higher…it’s a personal favorite, but I guess I’m in the minority.
