Not this moaning xenophobe again. I'm still trembling here, with him stood behind me, greasing up his penis, forcing me to eat brussel sprouts. Vegan tosser.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty good. People always ask who's your Arsenal. For me it's not the invincibles, it's not "it's up for grabs now" Michael Thomas Fever Pitch et al Arsenal, it's not record breaking FA Cup winning Arsenal or Xhaka getting sent off or Jack Wilshere getting injured. No, it's Carl Jenkinson and co getting beaten 8-2 at Old Trafford with "with a packet of sweets and a cheeky smile, Arsene Wenger is a paedophile " playing in the background.

Was surprised how rock-focused this is. Some songs are still reminiscent of the Smiths, but others go for some straight-forward rock. It's nice. Lyrics are still on-point. Favorite tracks: "The National Front Disco", "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful"

What do people want from Morrissey? All he's really guilty of is being a curmudgeon. He's always gone out of his way to say inflammatory things to the press, only to contradict himself in later interviews. But people seem to take Morrissey's shit so seriously. The homo-erotic sect suggests he's in the closet, and ashamed to admit his sexuality. Apparently, the dude simply hates sex. But he certainly loves animals (Morrissey was the first and still only artist to successfully prohibit McDonald's from selling food during one of his concerts in California, something not even famed vegetarian Paul McCartney could pull off). We can all agree that Morrissey probably isn't the most pleasant person to hang out with, which is something you could say about most of the artists who appear on this list. Yet people who've likely never met Morrissey hold some insane personal grudge against him to the point where they write off his music. I'm talking about people who cut their teeth listening to The Smiths, who suddenly read some "shocking" quote Morrissey off-handedly gave to a music writer and it completely changes their mindset. And the thing of it is, Morrissey has been doing this shit his entire life! If you're upset at something Morrissey said or did recently, just give it a few minutes. He'll change completely and move on to something else. He's the British Neil Young, and overall his musical catalog is on par with Ol' Neil. This is possibly The Great White Mope's best solo album, although I can't say that with certainty since I have yet to listen to all of them. This was one I owned on Compact Disc when it was first released, so I was already familiar with it. Not surprisingly, it holds up better than most of the CD's I bought in 1992. I don't want to be friends with Morrissey, but I do enjoy a lot of his music.

3.5 - Is this what Brexit sounds like? Here's a supremely talented band and singer who manage to screw it up because Morrissey can't stop moaning about problems that only the most provincial of Brits would care about.

Gros problème dès le départ : l'album s'ouvre sur la mélodie de la chanson Un Rayon de Soleil de William Baldé. Si on met ça de côté, c'est du Morrissey tout craché : de bons morceaux et une horrible pochette.

Yo a Morrissey no lo puedo criticar. Cualquier cosa que haga me parecerá de bien para arriba. Puede que sea este su disco con menos éxitos pero para mi está bien. Y las tres canciones seguidas que forman: Certain people I know, We hate it when our friends become successful y You're the one for me, Fatty.

Yes it's Morrissey. I'm not as bothered by his voice as others, although time has proven him to be just as disagreeable publicly as his bandmates found him privately. Still, his solo work has touches of The Smiths with some extra rock riffs and typically sardonic lyrics.

I am big on Smiths but never heard any of Morrissey's solo work, this is pretty great I am surprised that he holds up without Johnny Marr. Also, Mark Ronson's production is great and filled with obvious glam-rock sensibilities.

Very solid pop record. Lots of hints of what I can only identify as early Arctic Monkeys influence, and at times close to Metric, which feels like a strange comparison indeed. Less out-there than Bowie, though, and I don't get the lyrical appeal just yet.

Du très très grand Morrissey. En effet, le chanteur sympathisant skinhead nous alpague avant même de lancer l'album, à l'aide d'une pochette dévoilant toute son humasexualité. On peut dès lors lancer l'album dans de très bonnes conditions, nous sommes dans l'univers de Morrissey. Il va alors nou enchaîner de prouesses dont il a le secret. Ici, il critique ouvertement les hommes de couleur, les déclarant indignes de la race humaine. Là-bas, il arborre une perruque blonde, se mettant a nu et se déclarant femme, tel ses idoles de jeunesses les New York Dolls. De plus, Morrissey ne cesse de se manipuler les tetons tout au long de l'écoute. Cet album fut plus qu'une écoute, mais bel et bien un voyage dans la fantaisie du raciste chouchou de Robert Dimery

Had no idea this guy and his band of way far out of the closet cock lovers did anything that didn't make me instantly vomit up yesaterday's breakfast. The opener on this one's surprisingly decent rockin' with that heavy take on surf themes in the instrumentals. The shoegaze elements in #3 were a totally unexpected touch of psych cool. Sadly otherwise the track foreshadows the descent into crap that the album takes from there. #5's gay country rock marks a bit of a low point of almost no return. With the exception of #8 and #9's cute vibey instrumental work, the rest of it is - while still head and shoulders above most anything I've heard of his before - mostly varying degrees of insufferable. If anything, the saving grace here overall is the psychey studio mix touches and samples sprinkled throughout, well that and the uniqueness afforded by the overt campness of it all.

Okay, I'm not going to line the elderly moronic racist's pocket by listening to one of his consistently mediocre solo efforts. However, when I was younger, I tried all of Morrissey's solo efforts including this and really tried to make myself like them, such was my love for the Smiths. As ever, there are a couple of tracks that give you hope he hadn't lost it - the T-Rex pastiche Certain People I Know, and We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful, which sounds like a Spitting Image parody of the Smiths. But weighing that up against the odious National Front Disco (I think he's lost any right to protest that it's observational or ironic) and the bland plodding pub rock backing of, well, pretty much the rest of the album, and you have an absolute stinker of an album with a couple of promising singles on it. I realise Morrissey is a keen Googler of his own name, so I will say that he desperately needs the other Smiths around him to make the music, and to tell him that he isn't actually as smart or edgy as he thinks he is - especially the ones he sued. If only that double decker bus had crashed into him shortly after the Queen Is Dead. He'd be almost universally loved.

The most rock of Morrissey's output. Glam and rockabilly echoes, with great band and production by Mick Ronson. But the songs are still Morrisey songs: three note, whinge-fests. I also find his current public persona so xenophobic and unpleasant that I really can't give him any time. Will not listen again.

He does not deserve even the 0.000001 cents that I gave to him when I listened to this album on Deezer. However, despite all the "personality" thing, this is a very nice album with some reminiscence of "The smiths" that made a good rock album.
