MORRISSEY Ringleader Of The Tormentors (2006 UK limited edition 2-disc set comprising the 12-track CD album recorded at the Forum Music Village in Rome with long-term hero producer Tony Visconti includes the single You Have Killed Me plus BONUS DVD featuring the You Have Killed Me video and B-Roll from the video shoot gatefold digipak picture sleeve ATKDX016)
Take a long hard look at that man gracing the cover of Ringleader of the Tormentors; caught mid-concerto, tempered by lofty eloquence, gliding towards a crescendo of instrumental distinction. Whos he trying to kid exactly!? Ever since The Smiths disbanded and he was deserted by Johnny Marr, Morrisseys work has only really been musical by association. Hes more parts lyricist than he is straight poet, you see, relying as much on the emotive reach of his mighty vocal as his articulate depression. He needs melodic accompaniment, but its hardly been the focus. The image does still work though, as a metaphor. Name, if you can, a greater performer of pathos, a finer maestro of the maudlin.
If he is widely accepted as having been through a fallow period of creativity prior to 2004s comeback classic You Are The Quarry then hes hammering the counterpoint now. Two albums into his renaissance and we find Moz more tender, more cinematic and, if possible, more serious than ever.
Fittingly it is much more orchestral too. Take "Dear God, Please Help Me", as self pitying as expected, only bound in silk and suspended just above the depths youd otherwise expect to find him in. And album centrepiece, the equally dolefully titled "Life is a Pigsty", which begins with a peaking "How Soon Is Now" template before descending into a spellbinding Prozac-comedown in the orchestra pit, with bruises as evidence. The emotion feels that much rawer this time. This is not an indie disco record, it has more timeless aspirations. --James Berry

this album demonstrates maturity, manner and taste. yes, i do find it a 'sort of' continuation from the previous album YATQ. i am of the opinion that morrissey's new material should follow with songs from both smiths and present ones backed with ennio morricone's orchestra/acoustic material.
I never thought I would be criticising a Morrissey album, because with the exception of "Kill Uncle", I've liked him as a solo artist more than most. He once sang, Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before, and with this album I feel I have heard all this before and it sounded much better.
Main thing is the great singing, brilliant musicianship and inspired Production. Lyrics are simple but hugely effective. "In the Future when All's Well" and "I Will See You in Far-off Places" are both great but there is not a poor track on the whole record.
