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

The latest in a long line of stray track compilations that stretches all the way back to Bona Drag, if not Hatful of Hallow, 2009's Swords gathers up 18 highlights from the B-sides of singles from You Are the Quarry, Ringleader of the Tormentors, and Years of Refusal -- the three albums that constitute the great Moz comeback of the new millennium. Not all the flipsides are here, but all the noteworthy ones are, including a cameo from Chrissie Hynde on "Shame Is the Name," a cover of David Bowie's "Drive-In Saturday" with new lyrics all about the New York Dolls. These little pieces of flair dress up a pretty drab selection of songs that sound like leftovers, cut from the original albums not because they didn't fit the mood, but because they didn't quite work -- covering similar territory as the proper album, only just not as well. Nothing here is quite an embarrassment, but compared to his other albums of this nature, including the muddled World of Morrissey, there's a distinct lack of humor and hooks, or anything else memorable. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
