Customer Reviews

And die-hard Smith's fans,the version of "Bigmouth Strikes Again" is,alone,worth the purchase here.
Teddy the Wonder Lizard
This has some good moments, for example to discover tracks like November spawned a Monster, and Don't make fun of Daddy's voice was a great experience for me.

Having generally always hated the Smiths and especially Morrissey, it was a unique pleasure to listen to this well-crafted live album.

Morrissey's voice has aged like fine wine, and "Morrissey: Live at Earl's Court" showcases some of his finest live material to date. His band, with whom he spent several months touring with has, when compared to when I seen Moz live at both the Apollo pre-album release (You Are the Quarry) and later at Radio City, really has the newer material down pat and help bring the overall concert to a higher level.

The benefit of listening to a live recording of Morrissey as oppossed to seeing him live or in a concert film nowadays is that the old Morrissey, the one who would drape himself over a monitor or twirl around like a whirling dervish is long gone, replaced with a near-wooden shell of the great showman. Fortunately his vocals have benefited from his lapse of visual performance, and "Earl's Court" is evidence that Morrissey, far from being the washout he was near becoming with he lack of credible material or record deal, is at his vox zenith.

Fans who had given up on Morrissey after his last several releases and didn't pick up "You Are the Quarry" should at least pick up "Earl's Court," where Morrissey and the boys do an excellent job of showcasing some of Morrissey's best material from some of the best classic Smiths tracks (How Soon Is Now?, Shoplifters, to name only five Smiths tracks they performed) to early solo material and his present work, which has the most focus in this collection. The weakest track is a cover of Patti Smith's "Redondo Beach," which lacks energy and is too anaerobic for my taste.

Expansive, dramatic and ever-endearing, Morrissey's second live album reminds us that this King of 80s/90s Alt-Rock is, at heart, our greatest crooner. His combination of emotional honesty, self-effacing humour and full-hearted showmanship remind us of a previous saint of the supper club circuit: Elvis. Now of course, Earls Court in London isn't the International Hotel in Las Vegas, but the ability to work a crowd with a balance of kitsch and conviction is similar. Moz brings to mind the best of the populism of the King's late-60s/early-70s shows. As for the set, it's an energetic and committed mix of Smiths/solo work with the occasional cover, the best being Patti Smith's "Redondo Beach." This is a fantastic souvenir to the most welcome 'come back' in God-knows-how-long. Here's a star we can age gracefully with.

I really appreciate that morrissey decided to release the live album and live DVD (of two different shows!) from the 2004 tour that supported his fantastic "You Are The Quarry" album. The songs from "Quarry" sound even better live, and it is nice that he is starting to play more of his songs from the Smiths era. If you decide not to buy this full album, you must pick up the single from this concert "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out"/"Redondo Beach". "Redondo Beach" is a Patti Smith cover, and to disagree with one of the previous reviews, I enjoy it very much (perhaps because I love to hear Morrissey sing anything, especially if it is outside of his normal routine. Another highlight is the first verse of "Subway Train" by the New York Dolls. The New York Dolls are a Morrissey favorite, and he even wrote a book about them years before he started singing in bands. Here "Subway Train" leads into "Munich Air Disaster 1958, a fantastic b-side from the "Irish Blood, English Heart" single. On the "Who Put The 'M' in Manchester" live DVD he uses it to introduce "Everyday Is Like Sunday," which he did frequently on the 2004 tour. It works well in both cases. Sorry if I focused on the details instead of the whole, but this live disc is great. If you are used to listening to inferior fan-recorded concerts, do yourself a favor, support the best band in the world, and buy this album and the "Manchester" DVD.

This is the most incredible live album I've heard in years.
Every single song played is played with an intensity that truly shows Moz as the artist, the poet, the troubled genius that he is. There is genuine emotion here. If you can't figure out Morrissey and his attitude on life from this show, than you're just not paying attention. The ending says it all, "I love you, don't forget me". He doesn't want you to forget him (as so many did for so many years). He craves and demands your attention. He earns it here.
And the band, what can be said? Flawless. The Smiths and old Morrissey songs as well as the new material are played as good as if not better than the original studio arrangements.
Of note especially are the sequence of Subway Train (the old New Yorks Dolls song) coupled with Munich Air Disaster 1958 (much better than the combination of Subway Train and Every Day Is Like Sunday) followed by There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.
What few weaker points (and I'm hard pressed to find many) are still so complementary to the entire package that I feel the set list and performance are all well thought out.
There are no studio overdubs etc. here. What was played (mistakes and all) are right here. This was one tremendous show, I suggest you, "PLAY THIS CD LOUD".
Mozzer, you're still just incredible.

Not a fan of live releases - which have a tendency to feel like desultory product instead of celebration - I was doubly suspicious of Morrissey's Live at Earls Court, coming so quickly as it does after his triumphant return with You Are the Quarry. Wouldn't be the first time an artist - and this artist particularly - bilked his fan base from their hard-earned cash with yet another collection. But Earls Court is more than mere product; it's a document of an adored performer at the top of his game. In great voice, he tears through Smiths classics (a fierce "How Soon Is Now?" opens the disc), his recent good works, and - best of all - two seminal covers that pay homage to some of his heroes. One is the New York Dolls "Subway Train", which he melds with his own B-side "Munich Air Disaster 1958". Better still - in fact, seminal itself - is his take on Patti Smith's "Redondo Beach", a reggae-light skank that is a Sapphic cri de coeur in Smith's version, and a melancholy character piece in Morrissey's. It does what covers are supposed to, and so rarely, do: honors its source while tracing a line to the artist's own work.
