I’ve read stupid reviews about this album. He may have retreated into a comfort zone, but it’s HIS OWN fucking comfort zone. He created himself the very most of the sound of Call The Comet, basically it’s the best Smiths sound spiced with a grain of Joy Division, which in my book is great. Most importantly, the tunes are absolutely inspired. For me, his best solo album, and beats anything released by Morrissey in this century.
