Product Description

After becoming something close to a god on the alternative rock scene with the Smiths, Morrissey went solo in 1988 and reeled off eight albums for Sire/Reprise, the best of which are collected here. Rarely has rock been so literate, sensitive or complex; favorites here include Suedehead; The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get; Everyday Is Like Sunday; Interesting Drug , and The Last of the Famous International Playboys , while two rare singles comprise the collector enticement.

Morrissey hasn't released a new album in several years, but that hasn't put a damper on the willful eccentricity of his discography. "Best," in this instance, means not most popular but most characteristic. This American greatest-hits set is very different from its British equivalent, Suedehead, omitting half of his U.K. chart singles in favor of a curious lineup of high-aesthetic album tracks and B-sides, reportedly picked by the Moz himself. The original idea of Morrissey's solo career was to reach beyond the stylistic confines of the Smiths, but these songs are in basically the same line of work, with first Stephen Street and later Alain Whyte and others playing the Johnny Marr role of guitarist and musical foil. Generally, they're overmatched: "Interesting Drug" and "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get" still have a wry buzz to them, but a lot of these songs are little more than vehicles for the star's lyrics and unstoppable vocal presence. --Douglas Wolk
