All the greats have dabbled in such projects. Bowie with Pinups, Johnny Cash with American IV: The Man Comes Around, Lennon with Rock & Roll, Metallica with Garage Inc, Cat Power with The Covers Record, Meshell Ndegeocello with Ventriloquism, Patti Smith with Twelve, Costello with Almost Blue and hundreds more. Nevertheless, the cover album remains a risky project that rarely stands out in an artist’s discography. With California Son, Morrissey works namely to unearth unexpected, obscured or even forgotten songs. The ex-Smiths singer’s favourite artists (New York Dolls, Patti Smith, Roxy Music, Bowie, Sparks etc.) are known to many yet are nowhere to be found on this album. With the help of seven collaborators (LP, Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear, Ariel Engle of Broken Social Scene, Petra Haden, Sameer Gadhia of Young the Giant, Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Lydia Night of the Regrettes), Moz excels particularly on tracks by Roy Orbison, Melanie, Laura Nyro, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Bob Dylan, the 5th Dimension but also Jobriath, Phil Ochs, Tim Hardin, Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon. His voice acts as a driving force and is often exquisite, mastering each title (it’s astonishing on Dylan’s Only a Pawn in their Game). Above all, it’s a record we recommend to all Morrissey fans. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Hi-Res
After the superb side project California Son, which he entirely dedicated to unexpected and occasionally obscure covers (Roy Orbison, Melanie, Laura Nyro, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Dylan, 5th Dimension, Jobriath, Phil Ochs, Tim Hardin, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon), Morrissey returns to his own compositions. This time, the ex-Smiths vocalist (who is also known for his vocal points of view that often get written about in the tabloids) delivers an eclectic array of songs that is distinctly less rock’n’roll on the whole. This time, the sound is rather pop, often groovy but never overly seductive, the climax being the single Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know? sung in a duet with disco soul powerhouse Thelma Houston. Some tracks even sound rather like The Smiths… Lyrically, Moz unsurprisingly remains anti-everything: media, establishment, open-mindedness, consumerism. As for his Marmite crooner’s voice, it excels in the final track My Hurling Days Are Done, punctuating a rather interesting thirteenth album. ©️ Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Hi-Res
In the middle of summer 2014 Morrissey reassured us all with World Peace Is None Of Your Business that his inspiration had been refreshed like never before. Three years later, with Low In High School, the former singer of The Smiths has changed his tune with an 11th solo album that’s rather puzzling. Puzzling even by his standards. But the eclecticism of the production, going from a total powerhouse of sounds to almost acoustic refrains, mustn’t mask the power of several of the songs. As usual, Moz is impeccable in his role as a misanthropic pamphleteer and, judging by the cover, we understand that the British dandy is not here to swallow his pride. A pride that he always likes to counteract with a good dose of ambiguity, this art in which he remains a real expert. But when he’s doing Morrissey, like on Home Is a Question Mark or I Bury The Living, once he puts on his quirky crooner habits on a sharpened prose, he is unique… Album after album, Morrissey reminds us that The Smiths saga is buried firmly underground and that he’s dancing on the headstone. © MD/Qobuz

Op Years of Refusal, uitgebracht aan het begin van 2009, gaat Morrissey op dezelfde energieke, opgepompte manier verder van zijn daarvoor uitgebrachte albums, You Are the Quarry en Ringleader of the Tormentors, ondanks dat hij toen al bijna 50 was. Hoewel zijn stembereik niet meer is wat het was, klinkt Morrissey gesterkt op veel van Refusal, vooral op het aanzwellende “Something is Squeezing My Skull” en het grootse “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris,” nummers die Mozz’s immer literaire teksten en vrolijke, melodramatische persoonlijkheid goed weergeven. Noemenswaardig is de aanwezigheid van veteraan punk-pop producer Jerry Finn, die eerder aan het roer stond van You Are the Quarry en kort na het afronden van Refusal kwam te overlijden, een pregnante aantekening bij dit levendige Morrissey uitstapje. © Eric Schneider /TiVo
