Product Description

Product Description

Morrissey is one of few iconic musicians making radical, counter-cultural work. World Peace Is None Of Your Business explores the tragedy of human apathy in our turbulent, modern era. Morrissey's career as a writer reaches new lyrical heights but maintains his signature humor, drama, and emotional longing. World Peace Is None Of Your Business was produced by Joe Chiccarelli at La Fabrique Studios in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. The album is available as a standard and deluxe edition as well as on vinyl.

Product Description

(2CD) DELUXE EDITION + 6 Bonus Tracks : 2014 album from ex-Smiths frontman & his first in 5 years! Includes 'The Bullfighter Dies' & 'Earth Is The Loneliest Planet'.

5.0 out of 5 stars As uncompromising as ever... 17 July 2014
By A. Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It would be wrong, and a little lazy, to say that Steven Morrissey is a bit like Marmite, because he's surely a lot more more divisive and strong-flavoured than that. Even people who consider themselves admirers, fans and possibly even friends of the Mancunian mouthpiece must wince at the controversial things he's quoted as saying from time to time, usually when speaking about animal welfare issues. Naturally, it is his unique view of the world, combative mind and razor sharp tongue which all combine to make an artist who is capable of writing some of the best lyrics of his generation and very seldom produces anything that could be labelled as uninteresting. A new Morrissey album is always an event and “World Peace Is None Of Your Business”, Moz's tenth solo album since The Smiths broke up, is one of the strongest records he has made. The material on the album was co-written by Morrissey and stalwart co-songwriter Boz Boorer, as well as half a dozen songs with guitarist Jesse Tobias, a collaborator since “Ringleader Of The Tormentors”, and a handful with piano, organ and keys player Gustavo Manzur, so this record is quite the team effort.

Pleasingly, there are quite a few excellent compositions on this album, which begins with the musically dramatic title track, a scathing assessment of world politics and the control exerted over the people by those who hold the power. The lyrics subscribe to the viewpoint recently expressed by Russell Brand; “Each time you vote/you support the process”. It's an excellent piece to listen to if you want to get angry about the disenfranchisement of the electorate by stealth, but offers no solution, just a talking point.

5.0 out of 5 stars He never bores me, he never disappoints. 14 July 2014
By Dave
Format:Audio CD
If you don't like Morrissey already, then I don't expect this record will change your mind. If you do like Morrissey already, well, that doesn't mean you'll like this record... Say what you want about Morrissey, but at least he isn't boring, and unlike some artists he has kept some variety throughout his career. This does mean that some Morrissey fans only like the first couple of albums, some don't like anything released since the 90s, and so on... Personally I like pretty much everything he's done, with the exception of the Maladjusted album, and I think Years of Refusal (the last album, from 2009) was one of his best for a long time. World Peace though certainly does stand out against the more recent Morrissey records. It reminds me a little of Kill Uncle, and perhaps even recalls some Smiths era sounds, but at the same time this certainly isn't a backwards looking album. There is a strong, bright and confident feel that I've not heard in some time. The producer has clearly done a great job, and the band have been allowed to stretch themselves beyond the more conventional sounds heard on the last few releases. I don't think anyone was expecting anything as adventurous as this. In my opinion though this really is up amongst his best work - certainly deserving a place alongside Vauxhall & I and Your Arsenal. I struggled over whether this really is a five star piece of work, but i'm certain it deserves more than four stars. Don't be fooled by the 'singles' releases over the past few months - they really don't represent the best material on the record, and don't think the deluxe edition bonus disc isn't worth bothering with either - a couple of tracks there are a little on the middling side, but others are up there with the best on the album. Can't wait to see what he comes up with next.

By Andrew Sutherland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Half a dozen listens were all that was required to confirm it as an almost-work-of-genius. At first, I was a little underwhelmed -turned off even by the title track, with its Russell Brand-ish anti-statist blandishments ("each time you vote, you support the process") and the clunky, gauche artlessness of the closing lyric ("Brazil and Bahrain/Oh, Egypt, Ukraine... so many people in pain"... yuk). Must do better... thankfully, he mostly does. Great title, anyway (as ever, with Morrissey). 'Course, Moz's lyrics will always be scrutinised with a keenness that others' aren't. The man is a first and foremost versifier, not composer - he just 'directs' the music, or so the wisdom goes... and in this case it's mostly c/o Boz Boorer (with a very big nod to new multi-instrumentalist Gustavo Manzur); gone is Alain Whyte, Moz's main songwriting partner since Your Arsenal and a particular influence on the pretty basic, fairly crude 'chug-rock' sound of everything since then, the last three records especially. Musically speaking, World Peace *sounds* much more delicate, demure, and plain interesting than anything on You Are The Quarry, Ringleader of the Tormentors or Years of Refusal; all of them good Moz albums, but tunefully a little... lumpen. Whereas here we have autoharp, Spanish acoustic guitar, accordion; the record was made in Provence and carries a certain (pleasing) Continental aftertaste. The main instrument of note though is Moz's own voice; it's an absolute revelation here; seldom better in recent memory (just listen to the mannered acrobatics on the brilliantly camp 'Kiss Me A Lot'). Highlights? The anti-macho, anti-carnivorous diatribe of 'I'm Not A Man' (the only song I know to rhyme 'T-Bone steak' with 'cancer of the prostate'... Read more ›
