I never thought I'd type these words in again: THE NEW MORRISSEY SONGS DON'T SUCK. I just got them off Napster. I actually want to listen to "You Have Killed Me" more than once. It sounds like the stuff he was doing right after he ended The Smiths, not the stuff of the past decade that you had to smile politely at while avoiding eye contact. No more reminders that there are other countries than the United States. No mentions of...I don't even remember, what has he been singing about for the past 10 years?

(My review of his previous album here.)

Agreed. "Killed," is reminiscent of Strange Ways and Bona Drag.

Oscillate Wildly or Axel F? :)

I will see you
In far off places"

You are a worthy adversary Josh, however, you lose again my friend.

Rolling Stone gave "Ringleader of the Tormentors" 3.5 out a possible 5 stars.
