Ringleader Of The Tormentors

For all things concerning Moz's solo career.

Funny thing is I am well into the arctic monkeys now... maybe I doubted ROFT like Moz doubted them then backtracked.... swings in roundabouts. Anyways time will tell. :D

I absolutely love ROTT but my favorite track would have to be "Life is a Pigsty." Aside from the delightfully amusing title :P, it's a beautiful track. I especially love the rainstorm in the background, reminds me of "Well I Wonder."

By the way, I haven’t posted in ages and I’m very glad to be back! :P
Oh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the pain of the strain all over again
A rush and a push and the land that
We stand on is ours
It has been before
So why can't it be now?
And people who are weaker than you or I
They take what they want from life

Wow, small world. Although I don't listen to that type of music much anymore, I'll always be grateful to .org for introducing me to the Smiths.

Great clip.

There is a part in it just before the "la da da, la da da...." where Moz looks like he's in his twenties again. So cute.

ROTT is a beautiful album, and it’s got loads of gripping songs. I like “Life is a Pigsty”, “The Youngest Was..” and “You Have killed Me” the best, but the others are also good.

A lot of people seem to have problems with this album's production. I really think it's great, the album sounds amazing. What do you think about that?

The sound is loud, crisp, clear and I think it 'sounds' better than YATQ. I think it is amazing, sound wise.

It took a few listens to get over some of the tracks and mostly to get over myself to really appreciate it, but it is an amazingly recorded album. My two favorite songs that Morrissey does vocals on both have nature sounds in the background that sound convincing. I think it is cool that you can play the album out of 4 or 5 surround speakers and the rain doesn't sound like bacon cooking.

Is THAT the best you can do ?
