Morrissey: Low In High School
Andy Gill, The Independent, 16 November 2017
I RATHER LIKED the single 'Spent The Day In Bed', with its mischievous advice to ignore news broadcasts designed "to make you feel small and alone", and pursue more personally fulfilling activities instead. Its gentle, burbling funk-pop groove of clavinet and electric piano suggested Morrissey was seeking out less familiar (for him) musical terrain, while the song's message and manner gave the unlikely impression that perhaps he might actually, y'know, care about something outside himself.
