Product Description

Product Description

MORRISSEY Live At Earls Court (2005 UK 18-track CD album recorded live at Earls Court in November 2004 features versions of new and old solo recordings along with 5 tracks from the Smiths back catalogue played live for the first time in 15 years. Housed in a sealed & stickered gatefold card picture sleeve ATKCD14)

Amazon.co.uk

This Limited Edition version is released in a specially packaged gatefold card sleeve. Claiming that "It's either this or prison" but nevertheless capping his most successful solo year thus far, Morrissey performed to 17,183 of his faithful fans at London's Earls Court in December 2004 in a manner (Morrissey's name in big red lightbulbs) intended to invoke Elvis' 1968 comeback special. Thankfully, as Live At Earls Court testifies, Morrissey's life purpose is better served by rock than the jailhouse. Eremitic melancholia, mordant badinage and rancorous avengement. Nobody does it better. In fact, nobody other than Morrissey does it at all. Whether bemoaning surplus hormones on the breathtakingly immodest "I Have Forgiven Jesus" or wishing--rather self-servingly--that he'd been fashionably martyred in the Bavarian snow along with the Busby Babes, Morrissey never fails to raise an eyebrow. He may have spent his formative years with "three incredibly miserable people" but The Smiths' music endures, herein with slight concessions to modernity; Joan Of Arc now owns a melting iPod on "Bigmouth Strikes Again". Many of the titles are taken from the platinum-selling You Are The Quarry. Even the b-sides are grand. "Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice" sounds like The Pixies gone transsexual. Yes, the world is full of crashing bores but please strike Morrissey's name off the list. Again. --Kevin Maidment

Went to see Mozzer twiceoff the back of his current album, unfortunatley he insisted on playing it in its entirety and although the album is great he could have done with doing a set lost like this. Really good to hear a greatest hits live, just wish I'd been there!

To begin with, 'Live At Earls Court' fails to make a huge impression. Beginning with an unemotional and rather weak version of 'How Soon Is Now' you get the feeling that the album is going to end up as just another one of those 'live souvenir' records for fans who attended the concert. 'First Of The Gang To Die' lifts things a little as Mozza sounds much more in-tune mentally with his newer material but then 'November Spawned A Monster' (surely, one of the mans greatest, most moving songs of all) comes along and again things sound like Stephen Patrick on a usual day at the office...

Up until 'Friday Mourning' the pattern of 'matter of fact sounding - occasionally rousing' songs continues. Morrissey, while singing well, does not seem totally up for the event. From 'Friday Mourning' onwards, however, things really start to gel and Morrissey begins to talk more frequently between songs. 'I Have Forgiven Jesus' (another of the mans finest) is particularly awesome and gets a loud cheer at the end. Seemingly encouraged, and by now giving off genuine signs of loving AND feeling the experience, Morrissey ups the ante again performing a stunning and emotionally charged version of 'The World Is Full Of Crashing Bores'. This time when the concert returns to one of his elder Smiths songs ('Shoplifters Of The World Unite') it all seems to fit and the divide between the Smiths frontman and Morrissey the person and solo performer seem to blur. "I can't be wrong about everything" says the great man before the start of a sensitive reading of 'Irish Blood, English Heart' and then comes a passionate rendition of 'You Know I Couldn't Last' which seems to touch a very raw chord in Mozza.

Morrissey's music most-out there maestro is back! The man that had conspired with success a cocktail of intelligent pop, politics and vegetaranism changing uk's cultural landscape forever, shows with Live At Earls Court that he still conserves his mark! The Smiths'hymns and his ones as a nomad will never dissappoint to his followers urbi et orbi.For sure the voice has changed between one century to the other if we use this sonic sphere for making tedious comparisons: How Soon Is Now, shows us to a singer that I imagine he could never thought seeing himself performing that song in the developing of the 2000's.A travestite version that brings to us a mutation of Smiths vs. Morrissey solo.There's A Light That Never goes Out sounds like a well grown track for not saying a mature one track to be included in a compilation series of tribute to The Smiths by Mozz himself.This is a timeless tune and a brilliant sonic gem that doesn't matter who sings it at all - and you will feel like travelling inside a time machine showing you two different moments of Mozz career.Bigmouth Strikes Again,maintains here its indescriptible energy that invades you all with the same Smiths' spirit. A permanently sonic gem like Shoplifters Of The World Unite.The More You Ignore Me...has also the trademark that encapsulates all the stuff of this 20th and 21st entury trovadour.Irish Blood And English Heart takes us all to the recent days of his careeer.This disc includes also the highlights of You're the Quarry and flirts with a statement of what now is called brit pack.This identified flying object could
flight very high only if we want...and we want it!
