Like is said i think he's made some excellent songs post-smiths but i don't think he'll quite touch what he achieved with the smiths. Mainly due to having the creativity of Marr putting brilliant melodies to his lyrics and having a great rhythm section too. i'll admit i haven't heard loads of his solo career but his recent stuff has only been ok in my opinion, aside from Last Of The Gang To Die, which was a great song.

I like to compare his solo career to Lennon after the Beatles, he had some great songs like Imagine and Instant Karma but he never did anything quite like A Day In The Life or Tomorrow Never Knows again.
If you think that Last of the gang to die is a great song, you should REALLY listen to the other stuff. Some B-sides for example. The Edges are no longer parallel, Friday mourning, Ganglord... and then you can tell me if Moz today is not as strong as Smiths.

Morrissey has some brilliant b-sides

Girl Least Likely To, Let The Right One Slip In, Jack the Ripper, don't Make Fun of Daddy's voice, Ganglord and his cover of Song from Under the floorboards are my favourites

Mozza is an excellent lyricist. (Although my heart belongs to Johnny Marr.)

While I adore The Smiths and Morrissey both, I've always had a real soft spot for Morrissey's solo work. I think it just speaks to me more, espcially his later stuff. Saying that... not the biggest fan of his latest album. It hasn't grown on me yet.

I absolutely adore Morrissey's solo work, but I would still say that there at least ten Smiths songs stronger than his best solo track. That said, You Are the Quarry and Ringleader might be more consistent albums than any Smiths offering.

Or "I Know Very Well How I Got My Name," which is absolutely stunning.

I'm the opposite. I think Morrissey's work with The Smiths speaks to me more, especially Meat Is Murder.

Years hasn't grown on me either. Though I can't stop listening to You Were Good In Your Time.

Really? I think Meat, Queen and Strangeways are all very consistent albums.

I feel the same way. I find his solo work to be more enjoyable somehow, though I can't quite put my finger on why. Plus, he has a bigger catalog to pore over than The Smiths. And I'm also not feeling the new album. Not sure if I will even buy it.

I can't believe how fickle some of you are. The second it leaks, you're saying it's the best solo album he's ever released, now you're saying you hate it.

Regardless, it's pretty shitty how many people consider themselves "fans", illegally download the album and listen to it numerous times, and then won't pay for it. Even if you don't like it much, I don't understand how you can validate stealing it, listening to it, and then deciding you won't pay for it. It sure would be nice if I could go out and just take anything I want from a store, take it home, try it out for a month or two, and then decide if it's worth paying for or not (of course, I'd never take it back even if it wasn't worth paying for, would I?). Unfortunately no economy works like that, and every time you steal, you completely fuck over the industry and artist you supposedly love. Well done, I guess the rest of the world's opinions on how spoiled, self-centered, and void of ethics the West is is pretty much spot on.

For the record, I haven't downloaded the album. I'm making my assumption based on the clips I've heard at CDuniverse.com. And yes, I know it's kind of premature of me to feel that way already but maybe when I have more money, I'll buy a copy.
