On it's initial release in 1997, Maladjusted was seen as further proof of Morrissey's overall lack of contemporary relevance following the controversy surrounding Your Arsenal and the critical and commercial failure of his 1996 album, Southpaw Grammar.

The general consensus of the time saw Morrissey depicted as a lumbering dinosaur, out-of-touch with current trends and the insipid mock-movement that was Britpop, by producing albums that either reflected elements of progressive-rock (a big no-no in the days of the three-chord wonders) or instead, harking back to the former glories of the Smiths. Neither one of those opinions is necessarily true though, with both Southpaw Grammar and Maladjusted showing Morrissey's desire to push his trademark sound further - as he'd begun to do on career peak Vauxhall & I - by establishing a strong song-writing partnership with guitarists Alain Whyte and Bozz Boorer, as well as drafting in one of the greatest producers of 80's and 90's pop with Steve Lilywhite. The sound of these two albums (and it is really hard to separate the two, given their reputation as the most problematic of Morrissey's career) was much darker and rhythmically dense, with the critics imploring the singer's shift into dreamy atmospheric dirges and calling both endeavours difficult and far-from-immediate (two reasons why they unanimously adored Vauxhall & I).

However, the passage of time has, once again, proven these critical viewpoints wrong... to an extent! Well, it's true that Southpaw did see the inclusion of almost-classical arrangements, epic song-lengths and a bleaker, more-cohesive sound, but to dub it 'progressive' is to ignore the addition of great pop tracks like Boy Racer and Dagenham Dave.

This is a vastly under-rated album and the re-issue brings it to another level. Featuring some of the best bsides from the Maladjusted period and reordering album tracks, the album feels complete now. I'd have preferred if they'd left 'Papa Jack' on the re-issue but I guess you can't have everything. Was good to finally hear 'sorrow will come in the end' on cd. I am not a fan of re-issues and re-imaginings of albums but I'll make an exception for this one. The track listing and re-mastering is very good and the packaging is nice too, with a hugely improved cover shot of Morrissey. Nice album and a pleasure to listen to in it's entirety. I have the original album too but find that I'm listening more to the re-issue than I ever did when Maladjusted first came out.

I discovered Morrissey quite recently; More stumbled across him really. I just missed out on The Smiths, and so wasn't really aware of his music. When a friend played The Smiths "Singles" to me I was hooked. I've since gone out and, over a year, bought each Smiths album and practically every Morrissey one. I can't believe The Smiths passed me by while I was a kid listening to Madness & Status Quo (please don't hold that against me). Tut tut!
Maladjusted was one of the last Mozzer albums I bought, on the strength (or weakness) of some pretty tepid reviews. As another reviewer here stated, I can't understand why. THIS REALLY IS A BEAUTIFUL RECORD! It shows plenty of sides of the multi-faceted Morrissey.
From a dark, tense opening title track which takes the listener through West London begining with the line "I want to start from before the beginning...", into the fantastic 2nd track & standout single "Alma Matters". "Ambitious Outsiders" does what it says on the tin, being rather ambitious, and not really fitting with the other tracks on the album.
"Trouble Loves Me" is absolutely beautiful! Starting with an "Imagine-esque" piano intro, it builds into a kind of show-song. Morrissey excels with songs that most other vocalists would simply not carry off (Come Back To Camden is very similar).
"Papa Jack" is interesting at best, and then comes "Wide To Recieve" which at first didn't grab me, but I recently played it in the car 6 times on the trot. It's that good! Simple, but very effective.
"Roy's Keen" is a complete shift in mood with an upbeat Mozzer telling us "you've never seen a keener window-cleaner".

With "Southpaw Grammar", Morrissey seemed to be trying to get something out of his system. The resultant album, although interesting, didn't make for particularly good listening. Although I wouldn't go so far as to label it a self-indulgent album, it clearly lacked any real attempt at communicating with its audience. Of course, all of Morrissey's work is personal and introspective, but almost always universally so. Not so with "Southpaw". "Maladjusted" marked the beginnings of a return to that universality; it actually speaks to you. Although, on the whole, it doesn't quite match the promise of "Your Arsenal" and "Vauxhall and I", it does contain some beautiful moments (and Morrissey's voice is stronger than ever). "Wide to Receive" and "Trouble Loves Me" are as heartfelt and soulful as anything the man has ever produced, "Ambitious Outsiders" is somehow both moving and threatening, and the title track is a fascinating and unique arrangement. It's this uniqueness, I think, that keeps Morrissey not only relevant but essential. And it's an effortless uniqueness, not a desperate, dear-God-how-are-we-going-to-stay-ahead? uniqueness that sees the likes of Radiohead moving in ever-decreasing circles, chasing their own cooling heals. It's an effortless uniqueness because, ultimately, Morrissey the artist and Morrissey the man have always been inseparable, fused in the womb. Nobody writes or sings or even thinks like Morrissey. There are no precedents, no pretenders to the throne; imitation is futile. If you want to hear this kind of thing, there's only one place to go.
If the next album isn't a multi-award winning, critically-adored milestone in popular music, I will honestly be very surprised.
