That is one fugly sleeve.
Sleeve doesn't bother me but that font colour is just wrong. I'm no graphic designer but even I can see that the yellow of CALIFORNIA is harder to pick up than it should be.
I think the cover looks pretty bad, and it's not very Morrissey-like. The Hobo typeface (font) bugs me...again, not very Morrissey-like.
Which is exactly the point. Morrissey has chosen the design/font deliberately.
Deliberately, petulantly—who can say?
Yeah there's not much of a distinction in Moz world.

“CALIFORNIA SON” is yellow...like the sun. Wow. And the title isn’t as puntastic as “Your Arsenal.”

The cover looks pretty slapdash, but knowing he's a pop culture geek I wonder if that wasn't maybe on purpose? This new LP is a cover album and maybe he was going for a cheap K-TEL look? Those covers were always thrown together and poorly designed. The stereo call out in the corner looks vintage and the font also screams K-TEL. I've actually liked many of his recent sleeves. Maladjusted was awful - but he corrected that years later when he re-released it.

Honestly - I'm just very psyched to hear Moz cover Gary Puckett's "Lady Willpower"!

I agree. I think he was going for a specific look with this cover.

California Sun is an original by The Rivieras. The Ramones was a cover version.

Ha...was thinking that (even though it’s a cover of a cover), especially since he has covered “Judy Is A Punk.”

Absolutely fuck this grotesque nazi shithead:


Morrissey is indistinguishable from a neo-nazi at this point.

He's also earnt no benefit of the doubt over the years.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

I readily admit to interpreting charitably some of his more eyebrow-raising lyrics because of what seemed like a larger desire for compassion and acceptance of the shy and the odd, but I see no point in continuing to do so.

Okay here goes. In some ways I am glad he is wearing that badge becuase what that does is make a far greater statement than being the casual racist he has appeared to be in recent times. His support for Tommy Robinson is the final nail in the coffin for me. He crossed a very thin line with this stuff in the past but now he has nailed his colours fully to the mast. Morrissey you are dead to me.

I feel the same way. Guy is an idiot.
