4.0 out of 5 stars 'Arise, Sir Mozzer!', 11 May 2007
This review is from: Viva Hate (Audio CD)
His first solo effort since the break up of The Smiths, 'Viva Hate' had a lot to live up to. Thankfully, as lead single and instant Moz classic, 'Suedehead' was to prove Stephen Patrick was well up to the challenge. For the most part, this album is a triumph including all of the ingredients that go to making a great Morrissey record. The great mans lyrics are full of his trademarks Ie; passion, wit, humour, intelligence, anger, romantic nostalgia and of course controversy..
Apart from the classic first two singles 'Suedehead' and 'Everyday Is Like Sunday' my favourite track is the short but powerful 'Little Man What Now'. Being an incredibly sentimental person myself, the lyrics about an old pop or film star being 'reduced to a few pages in a faded annual' really touched me. Other highlights from the original album tracklist include 'Break Up The Family', the romantic and sad 'Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together' and the somewhat controversial 'Bengali In Platforms'. Things do taper off a little towards the end of the original set as none of the last three tracks ('I Don't Mind.. to Margaret') are Morrisseys best. Of the extra tracks added here, best are the hilariously witty 'Girl Least Likely Too' and the sombre and dark 'Ive Changed My Plea To Guilty', the rest of the extra tracks being somewhat of a mixed bag. So then, not the mans very best collection but pretty essential nevertheless.
