I guess you always want Morrissey to be with a light guitar English sound, nervous band mates and a rebellious front. I guess The Smiths to be honest, but Morrissey hasnít let the past get in the way too much with this new album.
It's almost rocky with riffy guitars and superloud compressed drums, but there's no denying Morrisseys distinct voice and vocal characteristics; somewhat sour and bittersweet. And this really is what listening to Morrissey is today, focus on lyrics and vocals and an interchangeable backing group. Fans of Morrissey will die for this, others might find nostalgia factors.
