iTunes Review

Rule: any album featuring songs titled "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get," "I Am Hated For Loving" and "Lifeguard Sleeping, Girl Drowning" has to be worthy of at least cursory investigation. Morrissey's solo career since departing from the Smiths has been a largely uneven affair, fortune rising and falling mostly on his collaborators' musical visions. Morrissey himself consistently delivers a world view as colorful as it is doomed. (With the album's first few lines, the tone is set: "Everyone I love in the house will recline on an analyst's couch quite soon.") Vauxhall And I is considered to be the solo effort that most closely recalls the Smiths, since it features a lighter touch than many of his other efforts, and the closer symmetry to his old sound does invigorate Morrissey's melodies. (Let it be said,though, there is no substitute for Johnny Marr's fluid, swirling guitar lines.) "Why Don't You Find Out for Yourself," "I Am Hated For Loving," "Used to Be A Sweet Boy," and "The Lazy Sunbathers" are subdued takes on his musical past and immediately invite repeated listenings, slaking the inner thirst of most any Morrissey fan.

The Best Morrissey Album Besides YOUR ARSENAL

And just ahead of You Are The Quarry. Hold on to your friends.....

You don't beat this one

Out of all of Morrissey's solo albums you simply do not get a purer sense of beautiful melancholy than out of Vauxhall and I. The palpable sense of resignation seers throughout culminating in the ever excellent Speedway. If you like anything approaching Morrissey then this album is an unquestioned must.

Greatest work of the 90s

First of all I can't believe that there has not been other reviews and that there is only 11 ratings. Anyways I love this album it's damn near perfect even. Albums like Maladjusted and Southpaw Grammer tried to recapture it's magic but just couldn't (while I do like those albums as well though Maladjusted was the better one I felt). It captures Morrissey at one of the darker moments of that decade with him being sued and his friends dying around him and him looking back on his life. The result, with the teaming up of produce Steve Lillywhite, is a album he thought at the time he'd never top and made him think a bit about the possibility of retirement. Truly and emotional album and a classic which is as good as anything he's ever produced.

Biography

Born: May 22, 1959 in Manchester, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

As the lead singer of the Smiths, arguably the most important indie band in Britain during the '80s, Morrissey's theatrical crooning and literate, poetic lyrics — filled with romantic angst, social alienation, and cutting wit — connected powerfully with a legion of similarly sensitive, disaffected youth. These fans turned the Smiths into stars in Britain, exerting tremendous pull over much of the country's guitar-based music for many years after their breakup, and even if the group remained...
