Stating the bleedin’ obvious

Morrissey is a wonderful artist and it really does please me to tell you that his new album “You are the quarry” is brilliant. Really great lyrics, incredibly spare. One of my favorite lines of the album goes “And he stole from the rich and the poor, and the not-very-rich and the very poor”. Only Morrissey could really get away with a line like that. And it’s consistent all the way through the album except in one track. In one track I believe there is a word in a line which is unnecessary: “Drinking tea with the taste of the Thames, Sullenly on a chair on the pavement”. Sullen were you Morrissey, really? I never would have guessed. But it is a great album. Do check it out.
