    The two greatest lyricists Morrissey and Bob Dylan, discuss

    I’m with Skylarker. Dylan, to me, is generally too verbose, too obtuse, too abstract. That’s the sole reason I’ve never really been a proper fan. Although I do think he’s great and the amount of respect I have for him can not be overstated. Morrissey I love, of course. Again, like Skylarker...

    This I can relate to. I, too, have been known to buy more than version of a single when there’s been exclusive b-sides. And don’t get me wrong, I buy records and cds on a monthly (almost weekly) basis. Mostly secondhand, though, I should admit. Except when my favorite artists release new stuff.

    Morrissey Central & SER YT: "You Don't Need Their Approval" - Morrissey 'Lost Demo' (October 31, 2021)

    Interesting! I’ve never really understood that myself. Buying a single or an album in several formats, I mean. I usually buy just one. I’ve never equated fandom/love for the artist with owning as much stuff as possible or going to the most gigs as possible. I understand buying older, specific...

    50 Cent is to BIG what Martin Rossiter is to Moz. Sort of, kind of. 😁

    Marr plays Smiths - NME (November 4, 2021)

    Sure, but I was referring to the style that JM is known for. Nobody plays Smiths guitar better. That said, he’s definitely on my overall guitarists top 3.

    When push comes to shove, I love and respect this positivity and I wish I felt the same. I imagine it makes life a lot easier.

    Marr plays Smiths - NME (November 4, 2021)

    I think it might be? Marr rehearses there now, maybe he even records there.

    Even stuff from the 90’s, Baz? I defy you to listen to “You’re Nobody Til Somebody Kills You” by The Notorious B.I.G. or “I Ain’t Mad At’cha” by 2Pac and feel nothing but impressed. The hiphop of today is diarrhea water compared to the 90s stuff.

    Does this mean that there are no Morrissey and/or Smiths songs that you dislike or have criticized? You simply like them all for what they are? I’m not judging you, just asking.

    @Surface and @Carlisle baz, which ones do you vote for??

    Marr plays Smiths - NME (November 4, 2021)

    I think he does alright for a guy who’s probably never considered himself a singer. As for the guitar work…nobody does it better. Oh, and by the way, I like Morrissey, too.

    Poll Best lost demo - including the ones from 2018 and 2020

    We’re usually starved for new material and don’t really think straight at first. That’s the only possible explanation for praising the dung heaps that are (most of) LIHS and WPINOYB.

    Poll Best lost demo - including the ones from 2018 and 2020

    I don’t think you need many seconds to establish that the latest ones are vastly inferior to the three previous ones, and I’m not talking about audio quality. The older ones are better songs, and that’s why one of them will most likely prove to be the winner.

    That’s a common trait among the fiercest Moz defenders, it seems.

    Poll Best lost demo - including the ones from 2018 and 2020

    Despite “By the Time” and “I Couldn’t” being fantastic songs (especially the latter), to me the choice is clear. BDE is a timeless masterpiece. A perfect marriage between a melancholy vocal melody and bittersweet yet hopeful lyrics. The pure essence of the Morrissey I once fell in love with.

    Yeah, I get the feeling you don’t like it when people criticize Moz or his music.
