The past 10 years have not been easy ones for those of us who harbor a desire to defend Morrissey against the barbarous million. Factors: the rampant cancellations on account of health problems, audience rudeness, and other vicissitudes; the transformation of his offstage voice from the gloriously barbed wit of his colossal youth into an increasingly reflexive crank. These might not be such a problem had the recent music been more authoritative. Since the triumphant comeback of 2004’s You Are the Quarry, Morrissey has released three studio LPs—Ringleader of the Tormentors (2006), Years of Refusal (2009), and World Peace Is None of Your Business (2014), three best-of and B-sides comps, a live album, two full-length live films, several box sets, remasters, reissue, repackage, repackage. The new work has… moments, but it would be perverse to suggest they constitute the major attraction. So, why do we keep coming back? Because if you ever had a Morrissey-shaped hole in your life, you never forget how it felt to find a Morrissey to fill it. Some debts can never be repaid. SEAN NELSON
