    Honestly, The Smiths just need to play a show together

    The last time I might have wanted to see a Smiths reunion was probably around 2002, before the comeback. Johnny's solo career hadn't happened yet, Morrissey hadn't put a record out in many years and everyone still looked good. It's too late now.

    Morrissey Central "ROBERT PATTINSON" (October 20, 2020)

    I forgot that there have been so many since the mid-90s. But yeah, those all have great sleeves. I'm partial to My Early Burglary Years, which isn't quite a greatest hits but it might as well be.

    "Knockabout World" is the only thing close to catchy on the whole record, which still isn't saying much. The rest is overwrought synth sludge with Morrissey phoning it in as he's done for nearly 15 years now. He doesn't care anymore, though he expects you (and the band) to. Dismal. What...

    You guys are truly delusional if you think Dog on a Chain could have performed better with a bigger push from the label. There's no single. The album cover looks like garbage. His mystique has been completely ruined by Sam and the general carelessness and apathy that elevated him to a position...

    We’re back to the “1997 to 2002” era of news items on this site.

    Post Millennial: "Morrissey: How did the ultimate anti-establishment artist make it against all odds?" by Fiona Dodwell (October 17, 2020)

    Another absolutely worthless piece of "writing" from this parasitic hack. For the love of God, f*** off Fiona.

    John Lydon voting for Trump "Joe Biden is in all practicality senile..."

    I know I shouldn't still be surprised, but it's still mind-numbing that Morrissey is attracting fans possessing this level of stupidity in 2020.

    Imagine being a grown man using terminology like this. "Cringe af" dude.

    I’ll also accept the Supergrass rendition of “Some Girls” but that’s it.

    Thanks for the well-wishes everyone. With my dying breath, I'd like to reinforce the fact that t.A.T.u. are responsible for the only good Smiths cover. Goodnight and thank you.

    You live in a multicultural society. We’ve all been there. Now cool the hysterics and get over it.

    I'm not a fan of his solo stuff but I'll check it out.

    "Half a Person" for sure. "I Won't Share You" doesn't quite do it for me in the same way as the others mentioned.

    1985 is Johnny's compositional peak when it comes to those lush acoustic ballads. I think of "Well I Wonder" as tonally related to "Stretch Out and Wait" and "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore." By 1986, that particularly songwriting style has already vanished.
