    Morrissey A-Z: "If Saturday Ever Comes"

    Nice to see the A-Z back... As for the track, it has certainly grown on me. It’s an intriguing gauzy, depressive doo-wopper that is a return to some of the more plodding mid 2010s song structures. The drones beginning is something I wish continued throughout, though Moz puts in a fine vocal...

    What song are you listening to right now?

    Probably my favourite song of the year...and it can’t even be on streaming.

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    Well, most of the commercial trap stuff is pretty shit, but’s there been so many great projects in this year alone. Take UK MC Little Simz, whose past two albums have been excellent, alternating between grime bombast and orchestral rapture. Her latest LP is in my top 10 of this year: check out...

    Morrissey Central & SER YT: "If Saturday Ever Comes" - Morrissey 'Lost Demo' (October 29, 2021)

    Yes, realised that after I posted. Apparently I can’t read 😂

    Morrissey Central & SER YT: “Once Upon A Woman’s Body” (October 30, 2021)

    Prefer this one to the other leak, but both are good, ignoring the poor sound quality. The synths sound a bit like Boards of Canada, and it’s good that he hasn’t regressed into his past chug rock self for the presumed Bonfire sessions. It seems to me like these are a way of promoting himself...

    Morrissey Central & SER YT: “Once Upon A Woman’s Body” (October 30, 2021)

    Thanks to @TheSmiths_1985 for spotting this. Another “lost” track, this one co-written with Jesse Tobias. Edit: also a Central post. https://www.morrisseycentral.com/messagesfrommorrissey/316731-morrissey-lost-demo

    Strange/unexpected Moz references?

    Found this on Reddit. Uses HSIN in the background. A first for me anyway...

    Morrissey A-Z: "You've Had Her"

    Thanks a lot @BookishBoy for doing this for almost 10 months! Your dedication is astounding: you are a legend! As for the song, it’s a fine way to close on. Nothing that interesting, with a chord progression that foreshadows “Boxers”, heavily flanged guitar that creates a more murky sound world...

    Morrissey A-Z: "You're the One for Me, Fatty"

    It might me my least favourite song from the album, but in no way is this song bad. In fact, I adore the melancholy chord progression that seems to politely clash with the frivolous and entertaining lyrics. Yes, they’re thin and possible underdeveloped, but it’s not supposed to be a grand...

    Morrissey A-Z: "You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side"

    One of my all time favourites. A rollicking surfer tune, with a massive bass riff, and some scorching guitar interplay. The vocals are punchy and upfront, while the lyrics are funny and simple, yet make a great opening gambit. Everything about the track screams “get ready”, with all the...

    Morrissey A-Z: "(The) Youngest Was the Most Loved"

    A fine rocker that suffers from many of the same problems as the other tracks from the album. The tune is barely there, a few chord thrash and bash that has little dynamic shifts, although I chalk that down to the weak production, another drawback here. The lyrics and vocal melody are...

    Morrissey A-Z: "You'll Be Gone" (live cover)

    Not really much to add here. It's a decent cover, one of the better deluxe covers anyway, although its set placement was always baffling; similarly, sticking "Judy Is A Punk" (as great a song as it is) as a final encore is just a slap in the face, really. Anyway, the flamenco flourishes are...

    Morrissey A-Z: "You Were Good in Your Time"

    My least favourite song on YOR, but it doesn’t mean it’s bad. The ballad section is nice, very operatic, but doesn’t really stick out as one of his most memorable melodies. The turn into ambient noise is a welcome distraction, and places Moz more in line with late Scott Walker, Low, Sunn O)))...
