Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 10/29/92, p.69
4 Stars - Excellent - "...the most direct--and outwardly directed--statement he's made since disbanding the Smiths...Morrissey rides high atop the album's rip-roaring guitar tide...YOUR ARSENAL is stockpiled with the musical equivalent of smart bombs..."
Spin - 12/92, p.69
Ranked #15 in Spin's list of the '20 Best Albums Of The Year' - "...incisive, bitter, accurate, and wounding..."
Spin - 9/92, p.102
Highly Recommended - "...brilliant...arguably Morrissey's best work...The Lads--the rockabilly musicians that back him--have returned the antidance Morrissey to God-of-Guitar-Pop status and helped him revitalize his music..."
Entertainment Weekly - 8/14/92, p.60
"...Morrissey deals in dolorousness the way Jackson Pollock dealt in paint. It's HIS medium..." - Rating: A-
Q - 1/93, p.73
Included in Q's list of the 50 Best Albums Of 1992.
Q - 9/92, p.72
5 Stars - Indispensable - "...[Morrissey's] musical salvation...YOUR ARSENAL is his best solo work yet and easily stands comparison with the best of The Smiths..."
Alternative Press - 7/95, p.93
Rated #67 in AP's list of the 'Top 99 Of '85-'95' - "...The wizened songsmith, warped beyond recognition by his abduction by rockabilly aliens, responds with his first album ever to match his media rep....Credit where credit's due: the band's blast is more powerful than any Morrissey had hitherto allowed, and his own lyrical prowess has never seemed more consistently strong..."
Option - Nov.-Dec./92, p.134
"...a solo album that comes closest to [Morrissey's] Smiths records..."
Village Voice (3/2/93, p.5) - Ranked #29 in the Village Voice's list of the 40 Best Albums Of 1992.
Village Voice (3/2/93, p.80) - "...Most consistent solo set to date from talented singer-songwriter..." - Rating: A-

Recording information: England (1992).
Produced by the late Mick Ronson, this record has incredible tension, long before the overblown and unnecessary Morrissey/Rogan feud started. Beat group echoes, doom-laden lyrics and a full atmosphere that conjures up memories of Johnny Kidd And The Pirates, the Ventures and the Pretenders. Solo artists often mellow out and mature, but on this superlative recording, Morrissey paradoxically rocks more than ever and shows further creative maturity. "You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side," "Glamorous Glue," "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful?." How many lyrical odes of gleeful spite can one man produce? Regardless of that question's answer, YOUR ARSENAL is packed with joyfully bitter melancholy, and an almost startling number of modern rock classics.
