    When did mainstream music start to go downhill?

    Random adjunct; I mean, to cite just one recent example from a vast sea of similarly stunted offerings, All the Smoke (Tyla Yaweh) is a smoooooooooth tune and a fun production, but the content is unmitigated garbage. So even when you chance across a snappy or genuinely arresting beat, the...

    When did mainstream music start to go downhill?

    Four downvotes within twenty-four hours — one of which was elicited by an entirely innocuous meditation on the state of twenty-first century popular music — suggests that you have a bug in your ass over a random internet person. Please understand, I'm not asking you to stop, I think it's funny...

    When did mainstream music start to go downhill?

    Verso, obsessively downvoting my posts won't stop me contributing, but do carry on. :tiphat:

    "Johnny Marr says The Smiths had a “blind spot” of being obsessed with media and notoriety" - NME (July 5, 2021)

    I shouldn't let it perturb you. So long as credit is applied for the things he did resoundingly well during his time in the Smiths — and I expect even his sternest critics here wouldn't withhold that kudos from him, ultimately — I don't see any problem with knocking Marr for his posturing and...

    When did mainstream music start to go downhill?

    Perhaps so, but the product is comparatively awful. I'm much younger than you, and I can objectively perceive the gaping chasm of qualitative worth that exists between the output of a Smiths and that of a 1975. Contemporary popular music really is a wasteland. It's not just old people looking...

    Off-topic discussion thread / moved as clogging other threads

    Juvenile memeposting cheering squads exist on the Morrissey forums? Heavens. One might've hoped for a more thoroughly robust crowd.

    Off-topic discussion thread / moved as clogging other threads

    Would you even accept a reply at face value? Nor have I made any attempt at subtlety. I'm not particularly genteel, either. I do generally aspire to civility, wherever possible. The very same rush to judgement to which you subjected your fellow woman, if I'm not mistaken. And we've barely...

    Off-topic discussion thread / moved as clogging other threads

    This is not the first time I've been a somewhat new member of a forum and been addressed in such a way as to suggest I should have a working knowledge of its cast of characters, past and present, and the feuds they were engaged in. It's odd when that's just assumed. In this instance, however, I...

    "Morrissey vs the Conformist Cult" By Anything Goes (Paul Joseph Watson)

    Card-carrying member of the Weller-approved, feathercut-sporting dadrocker club for around three decades now. Utterly lost without the muse and direction a certain firebrand gave him. Now reduced to claiming that he wanted a quiet life all along and was never drawn to Morrissey in the first...

    "Morrissey vs the Conformist Cult" By Anything Goes (Paul Joseph Watson)

    Well, it's sure gracious of you to clear that up for everybody. Today's lesson — it doesn't matter what anyone actually is, but only what the socially engineered mob say they are. Seems to be the way of things anymore. What exactly "would be another nail in the coffin"? Some kind of...

    Far-right group invoke Morrissey's name

    And, pleasant or not, you'd be correct in interpreting that statement as concerning itself with demographic and cultural replacism, not gentrification. Left-leaning Morrissey fans who are still with him need to be honest. That's not tantamount to suggesting they should start clutching their...

    The BBC Sessions 1983-1986

    Smiths Rarities in FLAC/WAV

    Apologies to any interested parties for my tardiness in getting back to this thread. Haven't forgotten about it or abandoned the project, life stuff just took over for a while. I'll be returning to it in the coming weeks. :whip:

    The BBC Sessions 1983-1986

    I saw the notification in my email this morning and was logging in to say I'd refresh the link in a few days, as I'm between my old residence and new residence at the moment and don't have access to my laptop/external hard drive until the middle of next week — bravo, FWD, for honoring this...
