Ringleader Of The Tormentors

For all things concerning Moz's solo career.

All true, but Q is worse because it's like an advertising catalogue for the major record companies. And barely even tries to disguise the fact.

Matt, did you pre-order from Amazon, because if you did, you can keep hearing the stream through your digital locker. --You paid for another one?!

I agree there are better things written about music on the internet, but I love magazines. I don't think the US music magazines are any good (and I have to settle for a Spin subscription), so I tend to favor Uncut over the others. And it pains me to pay twice the amount for a UK music magazine, I know, I know....

I was stupid enough to pay way over the odds for two Morrissey tickets for ally pally off of ebay last month and I still haven't received them yet. I was wondering if anyone else here bought tickets for this gig straight from an agency and if so how long did they take to arrive/have they arrived?

Alternatively, how long did it take for tickets to any other gig to come through the post?

Even if they don't come I should still get my money back, but the point is I thought I had finally secured some tickets and will be very disappointed if I have to go searching again...

cheers,

I really really like ROTT. It rocks. It reminds me of Moz's early 90's material.

I've listened to it quite a few times now, and, well, how can I put this? It's neither here nor there really is it? Unless it's a really slow burner.

On hearing the 1st few released tracks I said it reminded me of the follow-up to Maladjusted & the more I listen to the l.p. the more I agree with my 1st thought! I love it.

love

i finally gave into temptation and downloaded it last night. i wasn't blown away by it at all at first, but after many repeated listens i have come to the conlusion that it is one of his best works to date.

i will see you in far off places is perhaps THE best opening morrissey song so far.

I will see you in far of places is a very good opening indeed, the songs al follow up eachother very good.

The most impressive song is "The Father who must be Killed" next are "Life is a Pigsty" and "The Youngest Was the Most Loved"

Too bad you can't skip the tracks @ http://www.myspace/morrissey :( but worth listening them all

is it just me, or does the opening of "in the future when all's well" sound remarkably similar to "don't make fun of daddy's voice"?

After many, many listens this is probably my third favorite Moz album after Your Arsenal and Vauxhall and I

I think I would put it third or fourth after Viva Hate, Bona Drag and Vauxhall & I. It is quite a strong album, my least favourites are On the streets I ran, Dear God please help me (on account of the lyrical content and the way he sings 'de-hear gad') and I just want to see the boy happy.

Favourites: 'I will see you in far off places' 'To me you are a work of art' and 'At last I am born'. The final one loses points of account of its optimisim but wins them back again thanks to the spoken bit, the bla bla blas and the excellent rhyming couplets. Saying 'born born born!' like that over and over again is also quite satisfying.

Marks out of 10 every body and predictions as to its chart entry?

I reckon 7/10 and 2nd or 3rd. He really needs to start turning up for his tv and radio appearances otherwise no one will notice.

ps. I sent a review to Andrew Collins on 6 music and he read it out. It's 1.45 mins in to the programme, you can listen to it here:

"i'll never be anybody's hero now" is a new favorite of mine.
