WPINOYB critical acclaim in the UK

Posted by justme (Members) at Thu 24 Jul 2014, 08:39:15. 0 comments

WPINOYB is getting many, many reviews ( even from your neighbor next door who happens to have a blog) which made me wonder when did Morrissey become so popular?

In any case what is strikingly obvious is the critical acclaim from the UK press. Just to make my point clear:

NME - 9/10
UNCUT - 8/10
Mojo - 4/5
Q - 4/5
Record Collector - 4/5
The Guardian - 4/5
The Observer - 4/5
The Independent -4/5
The Times - 4/5
Telegraph - 3/5

Even the tabloids such as the Sun, daily mail and mirror gave it 4/5.

This, coupled with a #2 in the UK chart is a great success :thumbs

Is this Morrissey's best reviewed solo album in the UK? And why do you think that is, apart from the obvious quality of the album? (I personally blame Gustavo ;) )

Answers on a postcard, please ;)

TTY: Elaine Stritch dies

Elaine Stritch dies

Elaine was my friend for a while. She was, of course, a demented genius - in loveable ways.
Can we appreciate the people who are around us right now? The answer, of course, is No, for we are all pathetic human beings.

It takes death for us to say aloud: thank you for everything, Elaine Stritch.

Istanbul

Istanbul by Morrissey is #1 this week on college radio in Germany.

I can't decide if he is sad or happy about this, I can't decide if it's ironic or serious.
Either way it's depressing.

Tuesday June 10th

Morrissey announces the close down of the present U.S. tour with "unimaginable sorrow".

On Saturday, June 7th, following the show at Boston Opera House, Morrissey collapsed and was rushed to Massachusetts General Hospital where doctors treated Morrissey for "acute fever". Difficulties had arisen on May 31st following Kristeen Young's opening set at the Miami Knight Concert Hall, after which Kristeen confessed to "a horrendous cold", the symptoms of which were passed on to Morrissey resulting in the cancellation of the next show in Atlanta.

For the good of all, Kristeen was asked to step down from the immediate upcoming shows, but instead she decided to leave the tour entirely. Morrissey and the band wish her well and hope she is now in good health.

Morrissey received medical attention in Miami, and once again in Boston, but it was not enough to shake off the virus, the recovery time for which is too lengthy to meet the final 9 shows of the tour.

Morrissey and the band are otherwise delighted and very grateful for their experiences on the U.S. tour, some shows of which they considered to be their best-ever, most notably:

1 BOSTON Opera House
2 LOS ANGELES Sports Arena
3 BEAUMONT Julie Rogers Theater
4 NASHVILLE Ryman Auditorium
5 MEMPHIS Orpheum Theater

Istanbul - fan video

Posted by GeneralMangera (Members) at Sun 8 Jun 2014, 16:06:33. 5 comments

Hi, I'm a big fan of Morrissey. :D

Wishing to pay respect to his recent brilliant single 'Istanbul', I decided to make a fan video.
The video, assembled from clips of the film Küf / Mold, reflects the sentiment of the song - parental anguish and despair over a missing child. The character in the film has searched for his son, a student in Istanbul at the time of disappearance, for 18 years.
I took some liberty with the interpretation of the song, attempting to capture its universal message. I would be honoured if you could view it in your spare time.

Thank you. :cuteguitar
