Have listened to it enough now to say that ( for me ) it's his worst album.
By far !
and whatevcer else i've heard are dire. abysmal. and rubbish.
i really like it :(
i think it's better than 'quarry' by a long way.
plus, the production is just lovely.
how come you don't like it?
and the singles are great.
it's even worse of quarry.
Only good song is 'life is a pigsty'.
The single is only vaguely catchy and some of the songs could have been written for Blunt...
i like it v. much
you can't seriously think its worse than kill uncle or maladjusted. you fool.
maladjusted is flawed but has some great moments.
As for Kill Uncle, it was my least favourite Morrissey album before Quarry and Ringleader !
kill uncle completely disappointed me as i heard it after hearing the really good live arrangements of all the songs from it on the live in dallas video/dvd. if you like the album, you'll love that.
maladjusted is only not complete shite due to 'trouble loves me'.
listened to it fout times so far, my initial impressions are that it's not as good as Quarry, but it's definitely up there with his best. You Have Killed Me is a killer single. But, hey, I don't consider Maladjusted to be a bad album!
my assesment of it was that its a morrissey single for people who don't like morrissey.
and isn't it a bit reminiscent of hang the dj?
maybe not, this isn't really my area of expertise.
and have listened to Ringleader 5 or 6 times now but just haven't enjoyed it at all.
I think I have been trying to force it upon myself.
Agree with Lyle that is is pretty weak on the whole.
followed by Your Arsenal
i really like Ringleader..., i actually prefer it to YATQ which i didn't see coming, it does drag a little towards the end in typical Mozza fashion, but i'd say it's up their with Your Arsenal/ Vauxhall & I
I like the sound of that record, although unfortunately the lyrics aren't as good and as sharp as on the 'Quarry'. The single was my song of the month. All in all I'd give it 6.5-7/10. Will be giving it a lot more listens :)
I like what I've heard. Dear God Please Help Me is amazing.
