Steven Patrick Morrissey (born 22 May 1959), known primarily as Morrissey, is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to prominence in the 1980s as the lyricist and vocalist of the alternative rock band The Smiths.

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.

While not Morrissey's greatest album, this is still an invigorating addition to the (substantial, bulging) catalogue. The fact that his music is becoming more Latin in flavour all the time, is unexpected, even surreal, but given the make-up of his band, a somewhat natural development. I don't think any fan could have imagined him singing such mournful lyrics as 'Earth is the Loneliest Planet of All' to an uptempo flamenco-drenched backing track, ten years ago, but such is life. It's certainly peculiar, and yet he kind of pulls it off. Still not one of the better tracks on the album though . . . could have been a big hit if Harvest had given a toss about the recordings. Oh well another record label dispensed with . . . how many can he get through before his unthinkable death? It's exciting on this album to hear him being really vocally ingenious again, like he was back in mideighties prime, particularly on 'I'm Not A Man'. The lyric though is a bit predictable for the Moz, as he's essentially repeating everything he's ever said (overfamiliarity also threatens with Kick The Bride Down The Aisle, which is basically a lyrical reworking of William It Was Really Nothing . . . a misogynistic but comic portrait of woman as ensnarer of the previously footloose and fancy free bachelor within the dreaded institution of marriage; if one took a Freudian position, it reflects Morrissey's fear of the vagina, viewing it as a kind of Venus flytrap from which you never can escape; this fear is sublimated through the symbol of marriage as an imprisonment of the male . . . end of lecture). Neal Cassady spotlights Morrissey's own Northern version of rapping, which is highly entertaining, and inevitably, morbid.Read more ›

Arguably Morrisey's best work to date. A remarkable piece of work. Recommended.
As hypnotic, addictive and enjoyable as Southpaw grammar and Maladjusted, but what makes this album greater is it seems to rise above these, in that it is the more intelligent, more witty and thus more universal, just a better sound as there is more maturity. Every track is perfect, and seems to fit in perfectly. 10/10. Don't be put off by some reviewers claims that this is done in a completely different (latin) style, only one or two tracks have a hint of this, and again it is done well.
A great album not to be missed.

Ok people always winge about new albums from legends. But this is a great addition to the legacy of Stephen Patrick Morrissey. Well written stories translated in songs with some wonderful and satirical lyrics. I had an idea of Morrissey that followed me from my late teens to my late 20's and then I sat and listened and I realised what a genius he is. Listen with an open mind and you'll only look back and think why oh why did I not give myself a chance before? And then my friend you are a true follower of the cult of Mozzer!

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.

Purchased more out of habit and loyalty, it my mind this isn't one of Morrissey best. There are a couple of stand out tracks, but also some real duff numbers on this. Don't get me wrong this isn't a Kill Uncle of an album. But it's not Vaxhall and I either.

Definitely a standout album with some great tracks. Typical morrissey here with moody broody songs but that's what we love about him. Great digipack packaging. Only thing lacking is lyrics for the deluxe edition tracks.
