'Tis a fine fine album (I actually prefer it to YATQ) but I couldn't help but feel it could have turned out better in another producer's hands, which kinda surprised me as Visconti has given us many a great record. I guess they just didn't click.
I can't wait
for the new album. I'm seeing him on the 26th (!) and with a bit of luck maybe he'll treat us Oirish fans to a glimpse of it
. Well stoked for an imminent Years of Refusal tour anyway, WELL stoked.
It's nice to see a Southpaw Grammar reissue complete with new artwork. I believe Morrissey didn't even approve of the original artwork? I'm also relieved that the extra tracks aren't just B-sides.
