Who Knew Morrissey's Solo Career Was So Awesome, and If So, Why Didn't You Tell Me?

As someone who likes the Smiths but is not obsessed with them, I figured Morrissey's solo work was largely skip-able, but boy was I wrong.

Have you guys heard this new album? It was released in February, and I'll be damned if it doesn't rock harder than any Smiths album. Really tight band, with Moz's vocals in peak form and great songwriting to boot. I honestly had no idea the guy's solo output was this good.

Also got Your Arsenal on high recommendation from All Music Guide. Really great albums... and to think I hadn't heard any of his solo stuff until about a month ago.

D- I never would have pegged you for a Smiths fan, or even as someone who tolerates Morrissey. I do love peak-era Smiths, and I've totally slept on Morrissey's solo career too, so I'll need to get on this.
