This is really quite a poor compilation. It it has a handful of old songs(Suedehead, Everyday etc) and the rest are from his two recent albums and a couple of new tracks. If your someone who is looking for a decent best of, get "Suedehead:The Very Best Of Morrissey". Admittedly this album has nothing from his last two albums, though your not missing much with "The Ringleader Of The Tormentors". Other than that I highly recommend the albums: "Viva Hate", "Your Arsenal", "Vauxhall and I", the live album "Beethoven was Deaf" and "You Are The Quarry".

Morrissey...Morrissey...Morrissey. Where do you begin ?

There are two types of people in this world. Those that get Morrissey. Those that don't. I feel lucky to be in the gang that do. Or at least I think I do. The people that can relate to his sometimes macabre and darkly humorous approach to others, to life, to himself. He pulls no punches at any time. How many parties have you reluctantly walked into mumbling "I've come to wish you an unhappy birthday".... Don't you just hate it when your friends become successful ? He plucks our darkest thoughts out of the air and crafts them into glorious songs so we no longer feel alone in having these bad feelings. His wordplay and barbed insight into modern life is beyond compare and stir the emotions like no other singer. Who else would sing about the Moors Murders in their first album and profess to forgiving Jesus in their last. Nobody.

The Smiths saw me through my teenage angst years and Morrissey on his own has helped me though my 30s and now my 40s though I admit I lost the faith for a while around the Kill Uncle period. Now it's back with a vengeance following the outstanding You are the Quarry closely followed by Ringleader of the Tormentors.

This is a great collection of his songs from the last 20 or so years though I'm dissapointed it omits the frankly brilliant but disturbing November spawned a Monster. I think this is a good album for the casual Morrissey fan (as if you're reading this you'll probably already have all the tracks already) but I'm not sure such a thing exists.

Visionary, radical, depressive, lunatic, genius. He's all those things and we're lucky to have him.

I was someone who couldn't stand Morrissey, thought he was miserable and only made music to slit your wrists to. Then this album was put on the playlist where I work. Well I found myself singing along and,yes,actually loving the music. Some people have made the point that this album is ok for the "casual" Morrissey fan but I think it's fantastic and it definitely made a convert out of me! If like me you think you don't like Morrissey just give this album a go. You won't be disappointed.

This particular version of Morrissey's 'Greatest Hits' collection holds very little appeal for dedicated fans. With so many of the tracks from the man's last two albums and the 'fill in' live cover of Redondo Beach, a lot of this is very recent history. Morrissey has not been renowned either for releasing his very best songs as single A sides and a true best of would have to include a great many more tracks and a healthy smattering of album and b side songs. What you do get here is a collection for the 'casual Morrissey fan', the people that would not normally consider buying an album of his but remember loving say 'Suedehead', 'First Of The Gang To Die' or 'Everyday Is Like Sunday'. If you are one such person then I wouldn't put you off this, but for those of us who live and breathe for the man's every word this is always going to be just another album to add to 'the collection'.

Ok,I read all the reviews from the hardcore Morrissey fans,who lean towards his earlier work.I bought this and,on the advice of those guys,also bought 'Suedhead-The Best Of Morrissey',which concentrates on his earlier stuff.
Well,as a relative newcomer,I have to say i prefer this one!!Later,more heavier sounding tracks.I really can't fault this,apart from the fairly lame 'Redondo Beach'.
Its never off my player. I recommend it very much.He continues to produce interesting,cool tunes.Nice one Mozza!

Many have criticised this compilation for containing much of Morrissey's new material and not enough of the classics. But really, it just so happens to be the case that most his 'hit' singles are from the latter period of his illustrious career. So, as a "Greatest Hits" compilation, it does the job that it sets out to do.

If you're after a good sampling of Morrissey's most mainstream and radio-friendly songs, then look no further than this compilation. However, if you want a good all-round idea of what Morrissey is about, then may I suggest that you instead pick up "Suedehead: The Best of Morrissey" or the U.S. import "The Best of Morrissey"?

The songs on this album are, for the most part, excellent; from the blistering and dynamic opening track, "The First of the Gang to Die", to the powerful melancholy close, "I Have Forgiven Jesus". There is, pretty much, only one real clunker on this compilation: the unmemorable live cover to the Patti Smith classic, "Redondo Beach". But in the end of the day, as good as most of the songs may be, it's a difficult challenge to praise a collection where most of its songs come from only two albums. And that is especially the case when the singer in question has a back-catalogue dating back to the `80s. Yes, these are technically most of Morrissey's "Greatest Hits", but that doesn't make it any less redundant a compilation.

In saying that, it should be pointed out that this isn't even a full Greatest Hits collection for Morrissey at all. The lowest charting song on this is "In the Future When All's Well", one of four songs from the album "Ringleader of the Tormentors". If this song, which charted at number 17 on the U.K.
