"Morrissey Needs to look up Steven Street or Johnny Marr again. I reserve 5 stars for brilliant discs. 2 stars for 40% of the disc that have good or great songs. The rest is rubbish. Morrissey, get back to the Quarry. That was your last great disc(The One with the b-sides on it, that no-one new was coming out, so they bought the first one and then had to buy the next one as well. Thanks?) Alan Whyte has the gift of crafting songs, use him more please. Jesse Tobias wrote on this one and on Ringleader and most of his stuff is crap. Boz can have some really good songs, but he disappeared on this one. Both Ringleader and this one are crap and just sit on the shelf. It's not even worth breaking this out to listen to the good songs on it. I say this having all of the Smiths and Morrissey's music. I wonder when Morrissey's people will put the b-sides out to this one with the good songs on it (Cynical, skeptical, and disappointed in the Morrissey camp at this point). After this , I didn't want to pay the $80 to stand (general admission) and see his show at some outdoor event."

"There are 5 songs on this album that are stellar, while the rest are all slightly as good. If you haven't bought a Morrissey album since college, now's the time to get back in. I could listen to "All you need is me" over and over on a loop forever. I love this album."
