IMO the best Morrissey solo album. It has it all: catchy pop, meloncholic drear, lush rock. It's the climactic peak of maturity of song writing, themes and arrangement, without losing any quality. The style being more richly invested in alternative rock than indie rock, giving it a fuller, heavier feel, complementing equally deep lyrics. This album has so many hits like Youngest Was The Most Loved, I Will See You In Far Off Places, You Have Killed Me and Life Is A Pigsty, which musically sits alongside the other wonderfully depressing Morrissey anthems like Yes I Am Blind and Seaside Yet Still Docked. While we'll never get another Your Arsenal, this album is what it would see while looking at itself in the mirror after years of loss and acceptance. Carrying a certain weight of loneliness that can only be defined with age. Reply See 2 replies Notify me Helpful.

Ringleader of the Tormentors is a new Morrissey album, not a new Morrissey; attempts to wring autobiographical revelations from its lyrics are easy, but ultimately futile. Accusations of self-parody, after losing their sting sometime around "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", remain apt but, in Morrissey's case, often irrelevant. On his eighth solo album, the enigmatic warbler again sounds contradictory notes on love, death, the divine, and the despised. Ringleader of the Tormentors is, rather than the now-anticipated letdown, another fitting heir to that legacy. The living sign again: "This one is different, because it's u.

Yet ‘Ringleader Of The Tormentors’ is eloquent proof, that, to quote the title of Private Eye’s romance novel piss-take about Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, you’re Never Too Old. At least six of the album’s 12 tracks strongly indicate that Morrissey has found love in the city in which they were recorded – Rome. The almost embarrassingly frank ‘Dear God, Please Help Me’ begins with Morrissey wandering the eternal city before confessing there are exploding kegs/Between my legs, and going on to announce, Now I’m spreading your legs/With mine in between

Redirected from Ringleader of the tormentors). Ringleader of the Tormentors is the eighth studio album by English alternative rock singer Morrissey. It was released on 3 April 2006 by record label Attack. The album was described as showcasing "a thicker, more rock-driven sound", which Morrissey attributed to new guitarist Jesse Tobias. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK Albums Chart and number 27 in the US, and also reached number 1 in Sweden, Malta and Greece.

Ringleader of the Tormentors is not a bad or overtly disappointing record, and I don't want to cast it as such. But it is the work of a drifting artist content with enabling the auto-pilot and letting the cards fall as they may. The result is at times pleasant and at times slightly below board, and generally falling somewhere right in between. I think it's standard Morrissey, and has nothing special to it at all. I can't think of one song on the album that I would call 'great'. I thought You Are The Quarry was great though.

Ringleader Of The Tormentors' sees Morrissey not only in wonderful voice, but more flamboyant and alive than at any time in his solo career. was Morrissey's strongest album in years, but Ringleader reframes it as mere foreplay. 60. It's hard not to shake the suspicion that this album is the closest he's ever been to forgettable.

This being a Morrissey album, however, happiness can't last. Within seconds of Dear God, Please Help Me's slow dissolve, he is singing a song called You Have Killed Me and comparing himself to film director Pier Paolo Pasolini, who compellingly illustrated the downside of trawling the vias for a shag, when a bit of rough trade he picked up in Ostia ran him over with his own Alfa Romeo. Much of Ringleader of the Tormentors is given over to fretting about the effect that admitting sexual satisfaction - or, apparently more disastrous still, love - might have on Morrissey's image  . But Ringleader of the Tormentors has a mystery and magic of its own. Topics.

IMO the best Morrissey solo album. It has it all: catchy pop, meloncholic drear, lush rock. It's the climactic peak of maturity of song writing, themes and arrangement, without losing any quality. The style being more richly invested in alternative rock than indie rock, giving it a fuller, heavier feel, complementing equally deep lyrics. You are constantly torn between the feeling of being chained down by lyrics, while the songwriting gives release and an air of freedom. Each lyric a lock and chain, each riff a key. This album has so many hits like Youngest Was The Most Loved, I Will See You In Far Off Places, You Have Killed Me and Life Is A Pigsty, which musically sits alongside the other wonderfully depressing Morrissey anthems like Yes I Am Blind and Seaside Yet Still Docked. While we'll never get another Your Arsenal, this album is what it would see while looking at itself in the mirror after years of loss and acceptance. Carrying a certain weight of loneliness that can only be defined with age.

Sorry but i disagree, "Viva Hate", "Your Arsenal" and "Vauxhall & I" are way far superior records, but of course, it's a question of taste...
Goodman
i totally agree.I think this is Morrisseys solo masterpiece and the swansong of his relationship with Alain Whyte who is badly missed, by me at least.
