3.0 out of 5 stars Indulgence hampers good songs, 13 Mar. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Southpaw Grammar [Us Import] (Audio CD)
The songs on this effort from Morrissey are on the whole good. Southpaw is an epic closer and one of Moz's best. But, and there is a big but - to listen to this record you have to put up with some terrible indulgent musical whims. Why oh why introduce the song The Operation with a two minute drum solo? The Operation is a great song, but having to fast-forward through the solo hampers ones enjoyment. Witness the pots and pans clanging that destroys the B-side to the single Sunny, Blacked-Eyed Susan - there was a strange detructive urge inhernet in Moz's works in 95. Also Southpaw and the opener Teachers are Afraid of the Pupils stretch themselves out way beyond what anyone would need. Dagenham Dave also has perhaps the worst, or least lyrically inspired chorus ever. So, if you are a fan you'll pick through the bones and find the ever-present genius of Morrissey, but a 5* album this is not.
