Space Wolves “III,” “IV”

(U-T) I consider myself a fan of the idea of Morrissey, though I don’t actually enjoy his music. Space Wolves are far more poppy, jangly, lo-fi, and delightful than Mr. Smiths will ever be, and there are at least a dozen genuinely infectious tunes amongst the 25 cuts on these two cassettes. But the main Space Wolf clearly does not share my aversion to Morrissey’s singing and phrasing and inflections (though he lightens the melodrama by 500 notches). But even with a vocal approach that does not float anything resembling my boat I still really dig the pop chops and sweet songwriting, so two space paws up!
