Amoeba Review

Brad 10/15/2012

Kill Uncle may not be everybody's favorite Morrissey album, but it remains my favorite of his from the '90s. Kill Uncle was released in March of 1991. I was a junior in high school and right in the early stages of my Morrissey obsession. I had only really gotten into him the year before, but I had already worn out all my Morrissey and Smiths albums. So I was ready for this new album. Your first album that you hear by an artist is always special. But that first album that you actually buy the day it comes out is even more special. I still remember listening to it for the first time while reading the liner notes. The album opens up with "Our Frank." This album is seriously fantastic! You might have forgotten. It also features "Sing Your Life," "Mute Witness," and "(I'm) The End Of The Family Line." "Sing Your Life" is still one of my favorite Morrissey songs. And I always forget how good "Mute Witness" is. The Kill Uncle tour was also the first time that I saw Morrissey live. So this of course is probably part of the reason that I love this album so much. I saw him many times over the last 20 years. But that first time was still the best! I don't need to waste any of your time explaining why Morrissey is so fantastic. You either love him or you hate him. And some of us may just love The Smiths. But I was always a fan of his solo work. And especially the first couple solo albums.
