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.

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.

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.

Another beautiful Morrissey album. One I have sadly neglected, I always seem to listen to Viva Hate or a Smiths when I need a shot of Morrissey's wry humour, deprication and stinging commentary. But Your Arsenal is worthy of attention too. 4 stars

Oh great, another Morrissey album. I wonder if he's still sad all the time. Okay, it turns out this album is actually pretty fun and not the absolutely crucifying experience I've come to associate with Morrissey. Lots of diversity in the music, and it works well with his voice. Does this mean that I like Morrissey? 4/5

I feel like Morrissey would be great to see live, but no songs really stood that much out from eachother. I take that back, "We'll Let You Know" is very nice. Ok they're all very different actually goddamn. And otherwise I enjoyed it all. I gotta go and listen to some more The Smiths. "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday" got me in a fucking trance damn. 4, could be a 5 actually, na 4 is good. The way the songs get better over time reminds me of Arctic Monkeys ngl. Damn, people really hate this guy, and well, most of the lyrics on this album does make him seem like an asshole who's bitter that his band left him. it's great music though. 5 lol

"Your Arsenal" is the third studio album from Morrissey and features a new band. The album was produced by Mitch Ronson (former David Bowie guitarist) and you can tell with influences and homages to David Bowie, T. Rex and even The Smiths. The music is more rockin' than his two previous albums which is obvious on his first few songs. Of course, Morrissey, during this time, was involved in controversy with accusations of Nazi racism with one of the songs, "The National Front Disco," wishing a variety of deaths (to The Smiths' biographer Johnny Roman's and wishing a motorway pileup) and performed wearing the Union Jack Flag with a back drop of two skin-head girls. Regardless, the music on this album is great: rockin, tuneful, lyrics, a band. And, the title "Your Arsenal" has a possible triple entendre: the power you command, pun on on 'your arse an' all,' and a jab at the Arsenal football team fandom. The album starts out with two hard rocking songs. Great wah-wah wobbly guitar reminiscent of Guns N' Roses begins "Your Gonna Need Someone on Your Side." A "Peter Gunn" rockabilly bass comes in and now the music sounds like X (the band)...that's a good thing. Morrissey's lyrics are probably about offering a friend help who doesn't want it. The second single "Glamorous Girl" continues the muscular rock with great guitar in the intro and throughout. Moz first sung about the queen being dead years before and now it's London. He is apparently angry with his home country. The second half of the album continues the barrage of good songs. The first single "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful" again has a great guitar intro (pattern here?) And just a killer melody and chorus. It's more in the pop-rock category and has sort of soft-loud-soft dynamics which I'm a sucker for. Self-explanatory lyrics. "Tomorrow" ends the album and is one of my favorite Morrissey tunes. Another great pop song melody. A classic Smith's sounding song. Is it about not wanting to leave the morning after spending the night with someone, just getting old or both? I have to admit this is the first Morrissey album I've listen to in its entirety. I have no idea why? I've listened to all The Smiths' albums and have heard most of these songs. Anyway, it's a great album and in the conversation for some of his best work.

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.

Whilst it's becoming increasingly hard to divorce the art from the individual, I'm still not yet to let Morrissey go. This is certainly not the album I'd choose to make a greatest albums of all time list, but it does represent an interesting point in his career with vestiges of Smiths sounds evident in much of the content.

When I first saw this next listen I wasn’t thrilled. Morrissey conjures images of too-cool college music I never really related to. I’m not in the mood for angsty, miserable music… It was with some surprise that I enjoyed the first track, “You’re Gonna Need Someone On Your Side.” It rocked more than I expected - I enjoyed it. Then “Glamorous Glue” sounded a bit more rock than I expected. The third song, which was closer to what I had initially expected, was still pretty good if not my favorite. So what’s this? I’m enjoying Morrissey? I loved “The National Front Disco.” What? You can dance to Morrissey? “We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful” gave me a chuckle. Not entirely sure what to make of “You’re The One For Me, Fatty”… but it is catchy. “I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday” is downright optimistic… What’s this? A hopeful Morrissey song?! And closing the album with a request for a hug? It looks like I… misjudged. I liked this a whole lot more than expected. I still could use a bit more vocal variety, and I’m not sure I can distinguish a lot of the songs as they kind of blend together, but I enjoyed this. Maybe not something I’ll often play from start to finish often but I wouldn’t object to it, and there are a lot of songs I will happily revisit again.

I've never been a huge fan of The Smiths and didn't expect to like this much but then You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side started with Peter Gunns a-blazin' and made me all, like, whoa. I also loved the next track, the driving Glamorous Glue, and the last two tracks I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday and Tomorrow. The tracks in the middle were more what I expected and kind of mushed all together for me. But the tracks I liked were enough to push this from a 3 to a 4.

¿Eres tú Morrisey? Creo que finalmente un disco de él que me guste. Sigo sin ser fan de la voz y el estilito como impostado y nasal, pero al menos estas canciones tienen más caracter y menos drama que las otras de él y de los Smiths que habíamos oído. En especial me gustó "You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side".

¡Vaya sorpresa! Cuando vi que este disco era de Morrissey pensé que sería otro disco que escucharía una vez para no volver a pensar en él. Al contrario de la expectativa, el disco comienza muy bien, con gran ritmo y buena melodía en el bajo, gran rock. Continua con energía y comienzan a aparecer baladas, muy al estilo de The Smiths, pero siento que balancean muy bien a las otras canciones. No es un hoyo de depresión introspectiva sino que está muy bien calibrado. Duración perfecta, letras interesantes y buenas melodías generan una grata, grata experiencia. Sólido 4. Songs: You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side, Tomorrow

I kind of stopped paying attention to what Morrissey was up to after his first 2 solo albums. Turns out that was a mistake, because Your Arsenal is pretty fantastic. The album starts off with a surprisingly harder edge than you would expect, which really works for Morrissey. He is more in tune with his band on this album than he had been up to that point and it's probably a more cohesive group of songs as a result. Morrissey's self deprecating yet acidic humor remains, but there's something else as well. There's disappointment and regret, as well as a vulnerability that feels honest, making these some of the most relatable songs I've ever heard from him. The album lacks a strong pop single a la "Suedehead" or "Everyday is Like Sunday," but taken on the whole, this is an excellent collection of songs. This may in fact be his best album. Fave Songs: I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday, You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side, Glamorous Glue, We'll Let You Know, Certain People I Know, Seasick, Yet Still Docked

I notice that my (rare and inconsistent) scores correlate quite closely to whether I can play the songs on the guitar. A low bar to be sure. This was one of the most well-worn albums of my college years, and most often listened to in my car on trips to and from Richmond/NoVA—side A of the tape was this album and side B was Bona Drag and I’d get through both on the ride. Clearly I’m dating myself because today, that same trek would require at least 4 albums. Or the Hamilton soundtrack 1.5 times. I listened to this album so much that the tape sounded warped, so I had to invest 15 of my 1993 dollars in a CD which limited my listening to my one and only CD played in my dorm. Hence the driving soundtrack. I originally started this review by recounting what each song evokes for me. But then I realized that that’s just an n of one and won’t mean much to anyone else. As I listen to this album with 47-year-old ears, I get why it’s not that impressive to others. But my 18-year-old ears couldn’t get enough. I like the rockabilly sound of some of the songs (You’re Gonna Need Someone on Your Side, the lullaby of others (We’ll Let You Know), the battlecry of I Know it’s Gonna Happen. We Hate it When Our Friends Become Successful was, embarrassingly, resonated for me well into my 20s. But the perfect juxtaposition of yester-Bethany and present-day-Bethany is You’re the One for Me Fatty. My self-conscious, distorted body-imaged-self found this to be my personal theme song at the time. I even think my stupid college boyfriend “jokingly” serenaded me with this song. I don’t know what the hell it’s supposed to mean. But since Queen says Fat-Bottomed Girls make the rocking’ world go ‘round, I’m gonna go with England is more accepting of all body types (please don’t ruin this for me). But honestly I love the drums and little guitar riff. I guess music, at least for me, is all about relating to something in the songs. And I need a lot of time with an album to find the connection. Kind of like friends. Luckily I spend a lot more time with people than I do on this activity or I’d live the sad little life that Mr. Asshole Morrissey is living now.

This was a pretty solid Morrissey album. I have a limited subset of his songs in my general rotation and none of these are them. Mostly rock and with predictable rhythms, but with that trademark voice that I like and the rambling and the weird noise that I also like. Overall, just a solid album. My favorite part was the piano nod at the very end to Sing me to Sleep, a great song and worthy of the musical hat tip.

Just fine and just what one would expect from him. Best songs are “Certain People” and “We Hate It When…” and “Tomorrow” (especially the cute little piano fadeout).

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.

I especially enjoyed the first few songs that had more of a hard, raw guitar sound. I would definitely take a full album of that. The rest was a bit hit and miss but I still enjoyed it. A definite 3.5 but I'm not as eager to replay the whole thing like I typically would for a 4.

Another one I really enjoyed, but then, I like Morrisey. Lots of people don’t so it isn’t going to be for everyone! Worth a listen though, even if you’re not a fan. Kind of album I’d recommend to someone to start with Morrisey!

Much different from The Smiths sound of Morrissey. We'll let you know has some very not PC overtones. I mean its a great Morrissey album, its just if you are on the fence about him like I am, then its hard to say if it shifts it for me out of 3 territory.

Just one of many solid Morrissey solo albums, solid as in very solid. Sure, if you select his best solo songs you get material for a couple of albums that nicely compare with any Smiths album, but it is not clear why this album is on the list.

Instinctively I was repulsed when I saw that there was another album with this guy however I did enjoy this album as a whole more than "Queen is Dead" by the Smiths. Some lyrics are a bit dodgy. "Glamourous Glue" shows Tories have never changed. Finding out "You're the One for Me, Fatty" is supposedly about Chas Smash of Madness was surprising.

Morrissey was always “slash your wrists” kind of music, but sometimes with a political stance as well. As a result in my youth I hated it, drab, downbeat and melancholy. Today in reflection I may have been a little too harsh, however it’s still not music I enjoy nor would I search him out on Spotify. 3/5 on a good day

Morrissey has a distinctive voice. I quite liked it at first but by the time the Smiths were done, his voice was starting to wear on me. Some of the louder songs such as Glamorous Glue and The National Front Disco are enjoyable partly since the heavier sound is different for him and done well but also since the louder music disguises his voice.

Listened Before: N I came in with preconceived notions about Morrisey and I have to say, I was a bit wrong. Pros: This was more of a rocker than I thought I would be getting from the former Smiths frontman. The first song, especially, was almost a grunge song. I can say I actually liked the rest of this well enough to listen a second time. His voice pretty great as well.. Cons: Morrisey comes off pretentious in everything I've ever listened to. This album is no different. However, I think maybe if I lighten up a bit, it comes off a bit more just sarcastic. The cover of this album is ridiculous, too. Apparently he thought he was pretty hot shit. Added to Library? N Songs added to Playlist: "You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side", "Certain People I Know"

The Smiths on tosi lähellä mun herttaa ja toki esim Morriseyn Viva Hate on todella upee tuotos myös soolopuolelta. Vaikka itse jäbästä voi olla mieltä niin musa tällä levyllä ei ihan saanut mua kiljumaan riemusta. Hienoja melodioja ja muutamii lyyrisii koukkuja mutta ei kyl tarjonnu mulle kauheesti uutta. 3/5

I quite like the album sonically but i can’t really try to ignore who the artist is. Especially not with the lyrics of some tracks like ”We’ll let you know” and ”The national front disco”(i know the latter one is supposedly satire but seeing morriseys own opinions on the topic kinda blurs the line) so i guess i’ll give it a 3/5 but its honestly closer to a 3.5

So there is a period of time where Morrissey's popularity makes sense, and maybe 1992 was it. His vocals remain reminiscent of the 80s, singing from the top of the mouth rather than from the throat or gut, and musically the album is melodically pleasing. It would be objective to say that this album is good and worth listening to, except that the stench of Morrissey's musical messiah complex still manages to linger. If the listener can compartmentalize Morrissey from his own work on this album, one should have fun with it.

I’m gonna need to figure out the secret to Morrisey’s success on this album. He’s gonna have to give up the goods. Either that or maybe the record company is gonna have to tell me. I was gonna say Mick Ronson, the producer, was gonna have to let me know, but he died a year after this album and can’t. The real secret are songs with “Gonna” in the title as they are the strengths of this album (Your Gonna Need Someone On Your Side, I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday). Or better yet, Mark E. Levin is the success engine because he wrote the music for both those songs, the only two he wrote on the album. There are some other solid songs on this album too like Glamorous Glue and Certain People I Know. I would venture to say that there are not any truly bad songs on the album. Just not enough other solid ones to lift this album higher. Looking back at The Smiths reviews, I hated Morrisey’s voice while I enjoy it here. Im not sure what changed, but this is by far Morrisey’s best performance I’ve heard so far. I definitely like this album and would listen again. 3 & 1/3 star.

I don't like Morrissey's voice. So kudos to "Your Arsenal" for getting at least a few songs in before the vocals started to grate on me. Maybe it's not his voice itself, but how he uses it, often in a whine that exaggerates his accent (like when he pronounces last "laaahssst"). Some songs had pretty good guitar that I enjoyed until the vocals and lyrics got in the way. Don't remember which ones... it was a week ago. Maybe I should stop listening to 80% an album and then forgetting to finish and review it.

This a tough one. I still don't have an answer on where you separate art from the artist. Even before all the more recent stuff, I wasn't the biggest fan of Morrissey the person, but there are Smiths songs that I just love and when hearing them they take me back to a different time in my life. At the end of the day it really has nothing to do with him, and more for my own experience. I never really listened to much of his solo stuff, but this album was pretty good and I really liked a few of his songs. The "Fatty" song I get is tongue in cheek, but still just doesnt sit well. Songs to Add to Library: You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side Glamorous Glue

If you've heard one Smiths song you've heard this entire album before. I'm not a huge Smiths fan and this guy really is one note in terms of music. Every song sounds the same and he can't seem to be diverse at all. But at least it's short and isn't offensive (unlike the man himself). Generic and bland. 2.5/5
