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 ›

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.

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 ›
