Format: Audio CD
(insert a quote from any part of Paint A Vulgar Picture by The Smiths here)

And so the fleecing of the faithful continues without pause. Adrift in a commercial wasteland, without contract and with millions in the bank, Morrissey further cheapened his reputation with his sixth compilation in a row. Seventh, if you include the shameful "Very Best Of The Smiths".

So after "Suedehead - The Best Of", "My Early Burglary Years - The B-Sides", "The Best Of Morrissey", "Singles 88-91" and "Singles 91-95" box sets, comes this entirely superflous 20 track reissue version of "Viva Hate" with new artwork and photos taken from 5 years after the album originally came out, thrown together with eight extra b-sides from 1989 to 1994. At best it sounds like a random compilation CD someone put together for no reason whatsoever. You can't polish a turd and to all intents and purposes that is exactly what this is.

In case you haven't got the gist I strongly recommend you avoid buying this cheap and tacky ripoff.

And now to go back in time. Musically speaking this is to be treasured, because not only is it from the era when Morrissey actually made records and left the house, but most of it represents the era before Morrissey "lost it" in dated nostalgia and diminishing returns. There's three distinct things that needs to be reviewed.

a) "Viva Hate"

In a rare decision I agree with, this album regarded by Morrissey as hastily-put together without the best choice of songs. Overall the impression the album gives is that of sterility, and adrift from his former musical partners in The Smiths, he sounds lost but defiant.

Viva Hate stands up as Morrissey's best solo work to date. At this early stage in his solo career, Morrissey still retained his dry, arch, sense of humour and his sense of Englishness. Sadly his relocation to LA and obsession with America has greatly marred his writing in recent years.
The album hangs well together, with Steven Street proving a good song-writing partner (the best he has had since the split from the inimitable Johnny Marr). Vinni Reilly's guitar work is tremendous.
However this album has been let down by bonus tracks. For the most part they are utterly forgettable and date from later in his career. Even the inclusion of the splendid Disappointed is a mistake as the live version chosen is so ropy.
Everything about this version smacks of, "Re-issue! Re-package! Re-package! / Re-evaluate the songs / double-pack with a photograph / Extra Track (and a tacky badge)" as Morrissey himself complained on The Smiths Paint a Vulgar Picture. Shame on EMI for this abomination. And why mess with original cover art, which was atmospheric and in keeping with the mood of the album? The new cover is vile.
If you can get hold of the original release, without the extraneous nonsense then do so. If not, then, like me, you'll probably stop the CD after track 12.

Format: Audio CD
Released in 1988 - and immediately written off by the newly baggy loving critics as an attempt by Morrissey to ape the style and sound of the recently defunct Smiths - Viva Hate has retained something of an unjust, negative reputation as illustrating the singer's initial career false-start and, is undeservedly considered to be a weaker effort than later joys, Your Arsenal, Vauxhall & I, and the recent, You Are the Quarry. But why is this? Viva Hate remains one of my favourite albums of the 80's, and is still - as far as I'm concerned - the perfect introduction to the wonders of Morrissey-solo.
The original 12 track album opens with the sublime Alsatian Cousin, which finds Morrissey in a rare, hard-edged mode, as electric guitars wail away, wracked with distortion (this was the era of My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain and the Pixies after all) as those heart-wrenching opening lyrics ("were you and he lovers, and if you were then say that you were") ably set up the sense of emotional over-kill that the singer was going for. It's an intense moment, brining to mind the musical ferocity of a song like The Queen is Dead, but complementing it with the kind of ambiguous emotional narratives found in tracks like I Know it's Over, I Won't Share You and Last Night I Dreamt... It also points the way to later wayward formula-experiments in both style and attitude scattered throughout the remainder of this record.
From here we press on through the nice throwaway, Little Man What Now?, into that utterly classic single, Everyday is Like Sunday -- the only song I can think of that truly encapsulates the boredom and malaise of everyday life ("trudging slowly over wet sand, back to the bench where your clothes were stolen").

Format: Audio CD
Viva Hate was Morrissey's debut solo album, The Smiths split in the autumn of 1987 and this excellent first offering from Mozzer followed 6 months later. Viva Hate reunites Morrissey with producer Stephen Street (who produced The Smiths final studio album "Strangeways here we come"), and the two combine with excellent guitarist Vinni Reilly to brilliantly craft together some superb songs, notably "Suedehead", "Everyday Is Like Sunday", "Late Night, Maudlin Street" and "I Don't Mind If You Forget Me". Viva Hate gives us a hint as to how The Smiths would've sounded if they carried on for one more album, and as with most Smiths albums there are no weak songs here and Morrissey is lyrically in a league of his own.

This re-packaged version could've been so much better if it had all of the b-sides from the 1988/89 era, instead of random tracks that have little or no connection to Viva Hate. Songs like Will never marry, Sister I'm a poet (from Everyday is like Sunday), & Hairdresser on fire, I know very well how I got my name, and Oh well I'll never learn (from Suedehead) would all be at home with the original 12 Viva hate tracks. EMI could've had a 5/5 here, sadly a missed opportunity to improve an already excellent album. Thank heavens though for the eery yet brilliant Michael's Bones (from Last of the famous international playboys), a wise inclusion here.

The original album reached number one in the UK charts (something The Smiths achieved only once), and put Morrissey the solo star firmly on the map. There have been many solo albums from Mozzer since 1988, but few have reached the heights Viva Hate scaled 20 odd years ago. This album really has everything, well-produced elegant songs, features superb musicians and showcases Morrissey at his peak. Definitely recommended, especially if you've got into The Smiths recently and want to explore further with Morrissey's solo catalogue.
