I am not a Smiths or a Morrissey fan. Indeed I find the whole Brit miserableist musical vein that he started (Travis, Coldplay etc.) faintly risible. But only two words describe his latest, You are the quarry - fscking brilliant. I have been listening to this for the last two weeks, and like all the best albums, it creeps up on you. You'll start thinking it's just ok, but nothing to write home about, and gradually with repeated listening, each song will sneak up and grab you by the windpipe. At the moment my favourite song is "First of the gang to die", (and the song is as good and catchy as the title), but I know by next week something else will have taken up lodging in my cerebral cortex, as this collection is as rich as a Christmas cake. This is a truly wonderful CD, and to finish I have two more words to give you - buy it.

I wasn't planning to buy this one, as it sounded cak when he was on Jonathan Ross, but I just might yet...

I enjoyed this album almost as much as the new beastie boys album - worth it solely for "Time to build"

First in the gang is such an interesting song. It sounds so pop and then you listen to the lyrics.
