    The setlist last night was perfect. Wish I was going to another one on this run, but at least the Forest Hills show is right around the corner.

    He sang the lyrics to Half A Person at the start of How Soon Is Now? and it sounds amazing:

    Seriously, what the fuck. I know he's always been sort of a pompous dope but fuck man, what are you doing.

    California Son has leaked. I haven't gotten to listen to it yet, but I'm reading positive things from people who actually bothered to listen to it and aren't just bashing it because of the dumb things he says and does outside of the music.

    All of these songs were great — back in the 60s and 70s, sung by the original artists. With this over-cooked, AutoTuned, pre-fab production slathered all over Moz's aging voice as he warbles his way through them, getting the words wrong, ah... not so much.

    This albums actually pretty great. It's early still, but I'm currently willing to go as far as to say it's his best since Ringleader. Moz should stick stick to cover songs from now on until he remembers how to write a decent lyric.

    Thing is, he should stop re-writing other people's lyrics in the meantime:

    I'm a big Joni fan... and this one was the hardest for me to take.

    So, in the original lyric, the Anima, Queen of Queens — a Jungian reference, naturally — is a spiritual avatar, a female-energy shadow spirit complementing every male-energy persona. There is an overbearing male persona that's excoriated in Joni's original song lyrics; she imagines the "Anima rising in me tonight" as a response. Morrissey has changed the lyrics, so that the anima is the one being tut-tutted for "uprising in you tonight". He's subtly changed the words in every verse, re-writing it from the boorish male perspective. As though Moz can't possibly have feminine traits in himself, or take any responsibility for toxic masculine ones. Put this in context with his boo-hoo'ing over #MeToo and it's... well, straight-up desecration.

    "I say Anima rising... but: so what?" Fuck you, Moz. I say delete this album and go listen to The Hissing of Summer Lawns instead.
