give it a rest wont you..,
This review is from: Kill Uncle (Audio CD)
after reading plenty of negative reviews about Kill Uncle, i was a little reluctant to buy it.. but i'm very glad i did.
i recognise that this is down to personal preference but i love the whole atmosphere and production of this morrissey album in particular. The lyrics are sometimes unusual, which again whether you like or not is your preference.
Our Frank sets the mood. Mute Witness is a highlight with the great lyric 'your mute witness... oh well she's only trying to tell you what it was that she saw.' The End Of The Family Line and There is a Place.. wouldn't be too far out of place in later Smiths work, and provide a strong end to the album.
In my opinion Kill Uncle offers extremely underrated Morrissey songs but it's.. different.. style does NOT appeal to everyone.
