subtle and sad,
This review is from: Kill Uncle (Audio CD)
kill uncle is the album i most revisit...Morrissey at his saddest, mournful, self aware and introspective- it may not be the smiths, but its theatrical sound is bizarrely underrated.
My favourite ones would be-
asian rut- camp and theatrical telling of a bullied asian boy who turns up for revenge
king leer- morrissey's suggestion that 'tizer' might not be the best choice to woo a girlll
driving your girlfriend home- noone would write a song like this, its so resigned to loneliness its painful how he accepts it
harsh truth of the camera eye- one of my favourites just for the line- 'Churchillian legs, hair barely there...'
Ignore the haters they havent gorra clue. Its morrissey when he enjoyed subtlety rather than power chords and chest beating.
