Produced by the late Mick Ronson, this record has incredible tension, long before the overblown and unnecessary Morrissey/Rogan feud started. Beat group echoes, doom-laden lyrics and a full atmosphere that conjures up memories of Johnny Kidd And The Pirates, the Ventures and the Pretenders. Solo artists often mellow out and mature, but on this superlative recording, Morrissey paradoxically rocks more than ever and shows further creative maturity. "You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side" and "Glamorous Glue" are only two reasons to buy this album. How many more lyrical odes does he have left?
