When did they stop being good? Which show went from being good to the next not being very good?
A rather abrupt drop-off from 2007/2008 into 2009, then a more gradual decline into whatever it is we're looking at today. Obviously there are glimmers of the old brilliance strewn about but they're now the exceptions rather than the rule.

Curb your neuroses, you illiterate lunatic. You’ve never even seen Morrissey. Not every show is a knockout and they haven’t been very good in a long while.
Aha illiterate, that if I am not, neurotics if, I tell you that mental health almost does not exist, most people have mild neurosis, and to enter this site minimum you have to be neurotic, I inform you that I am a woman, I never saw Morrissey but I listen to Morrissey and I see live videos of Moz and you do not need to go see the artist if he sings or makes music, or maybe you saw. To Mozart live? ,to give an example

For me, a lot of it came down to setlist choices. The playing to death of songs like Paris, Munich, Ganglord, and the exclusion of much stronger material from throughout his career. 2017 was definitely one of the worst shows I attended (way too much LIHS), but 2018 & 2019 were much better/fun shows.

I think he's still got it in him. While I was tepid on the Vegas shows, the Broadway residency looked very strong.

I also think he's still got it in him, which is why I was disappointed by what seemed like a no concept, low effort residency in Vegas when the circumstance delivered him the opportunity to essentially rebuild the whole thing from the ground up. I saw a couple of the Broadway shows and thought they were okay but lacked a sense of urgency.
