ALBUM REVIEW: Morrissey | World Peace is None of Your Business

Rating703f7a1f1-2There’s always mild controversy surrounding Morrissey so when a new album rolls around it serves as a timely reminder of the man’s ability as a singer and lyricist. Here he sticks firmly to the grand indie-pop/glam rock n roll template he mastered decades ago but it now sounds more stately and controlled with flashes of Spanish guitar, horns and subtle electronica. His lyrics are as cutting, literary and humorous as ever with titles like ‘Kick The Bride Down The Aisle’ and the Suede-ish title track. ‘Kiss Me a Lot’ and ‘Oboe Concerto’ in particular ensure this is right up there with the best of his solo albums.
