5.0 out of 5 stars Back in Form 11 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Who would have known that living in the La-la Los Angeles would have focused Morrissey's sharp wit and ability for biting commentary? This first single off of his first album in 7 years is defiantly proud of his heritage and laments the blind devotion his home country has to the royal family.
The B-sides, as is often the case with Moz, could have very easily found themselves on the album. "Munich Air Disaster 1958" pays tribute to an event that deserves national remembrance. "The Never Played Symphonies" is Morrissey at his self-introspective, wistful self. "It's Hard to Walk Tall When Your Small" should be on the soundtrack to the next film about Napoleon Bonaparte.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punchy Comeback Single 13 May 2004
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Its finally here - the first new recording in 7 years! Irish Blood is a slightly strange choice of first single from the new album - it's unquestionably a great song, but the lack of catchy chorus and the self-referential lyrics make this a surprising choice against more obvious fare as The Last of the Gang to Die.
Two B-Sides here - Munich Air Disaster 1958 is a minor but effective song mourning the loss of the Manchester United team (though the propeller sound effects are a touch melodramatic).
Best of the bunch is The Never Played Symphonies, a death bed reminiscence consisting of only vocals and keyboard accompaniment, not unlike I've Changed My Plea to Guilty.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best single of 2004 12 Oct 2012
By Andy H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Irsh Blood, English Heart had inevitably renewed Morrissey's mainstream success from his declined popularity back in the 1990s. It is arguable Morrissey's best single released to date.
