Morrissey - Satan Rejected My Soul

Released: 1997
Download It

This is from the somewhat underrated 1997 album, Maladjusted.

I like these lyrics - Morrissey carting round his soul to whoever will take it. The ultimate snub - even Satan isn't interested.

Musically, it's a rollicking upbeat number with a great catchy central riff.

All in all, a superior Moz track.

Britney Spears - DFA Demo Track

Most of the time I want to listen to white boys whining about not getting laid but every now and again I need a fix of gay disco pop.

This is song fulfills that need.

Scott Walker - Farmer in the City

Released: 1995
Download it (9.5 Mb)

Okay, so you’ve come across some music nerds, right? And they always crap on about how weird their music tastes are because they have got the original Boards of Canada LP and how they “are really getting into Trout Mask Replica” or some shit.

Well, I present to you the ultimate musical snob trump card. This album (Tilt) is by far the most out there piece of listenable music that no one’s ever heard of.

It’s also fucking brilliant.

Morrissey - I Will See You In Far Off Places

Released: 2006
Download It

Here's the opening track from the new Morrissey album, mischievously leaked on to the interwebs 2 months ahead of official release.

Upon first listen, one is first struck by the unexpected eastern/arabian soundscape. Is this Moz moving in new musical directions? (shudder). Nope. The use of the gimmick becomes immediately apparent as the lyrics unfold - for the 2nd album in a row, Moz has decided to kick proceedings off with a (slightly ambiguous) anti-USA political bent.

Yea, it's another vainglorious, self-contradictory, mid-tempo chugging epic in typical pithy Moz fashion. What were you expecting, the fucken Arctic Monkeys?

Peter Gabirel - Through The Wire

Delegated Review
Released: 1980
Download it (8.6 Mb)

I don’t like this. It’s a combination of the awful guitar sound, the dreary drumming and the way Gabriel keeps singing WOOOOOIIIIIIYYYYYEEEEERRRR makes up for one big bowl of suck.
