Reviews


I Am Not a Dog on a Chain (2020)


Increasingly flawed and overtly self-indulgent latest album from ex-Smiths frontman, Morrissey


Low in High School (2017)


Welcome return for the Los Angeles-living Manchurian Morrissey as he releases his long awaited new album on BMG almost four years after his last record


World Peace is None of Your Business (2014)


Excellent tenth solo album and first record in five years from Morrissey, which finds him on controversial form


Everyday is Like Sunday (2010)


Unsatisfactory and expensive re-release of Morrisey's second single, which has been released ahead of a remastered version of his solo debut album, 'Viva Hate'


Revelation (2010)


Vinyl only and unofficial collection of both impressive and disappointing unreleased late 80s and early 90s tracks from Morrissey


Something is Squeezing My Skull (2009)


Perfect second single from his latest 'Years of Refusal' album for Morrissey


Years of Refusal (2009)


Sporadic latest album from Morrissey, which, while proving to be a grower, is far from one of his best moments


I’m Throwing My Arms around Paris (2009)


Classy multi-formatted new single from Morrisey, the first from his 'Refusal' album


All You Need is Me (2008)


Especially poetic new single from Morrissey, which, while appearing on his recent 'Greatest Hits' album, is actually a new track


That's How People Grow Up (2008)


Fantastic new single from Morrissey, with an impressive collection of live tracks on its B sides


In The Future When All's Well (2006)


Happy-sounding third single from his much acclaimed comeback album ‘Ringleaders of the Tormentors’ for Morrissey


Youngest Was The Most Loved (2006)


Excellent new Morrisey single, which includes two previously unreleased tracks


Ringleader Of The Tormentors (2006)


Groundbreaking eighth solo album from Morrissey, which quickly establishes itself as one the best of his career


You Have Killed Me (2006)


Fine first single from his new album 'Ringleader of the Tormentors' from Morrissey


Let Me Kiss You (2004)


Stunning new CDS from Morrissey, which compensates for his disappointing and over-rated recent album, 'You are the Quarry'


You Are The Quarry (2004)


Long-awaited new album from Morrissey, which unfortunately does not match up the hype or its first single 'Irish Blood, English Heart'


Irish Blood, English Heart (2004)


Welcome first new single in seven years from the much missed Morrissey
