    The best album to date of the 21st Century's incarnation of Morrissey, Years of Refusal finds Moz back at the top of his lyrical game. Not every song is brilliant, but there are several tracks on this album that could go toe to toe with anything the man's ever produced. The music is equally sharp, and it's some of the most aggressive rock that Morrissey has put out.

  1. Years Of Refusal is Morrissey on top form.
  2. A Morrissey record you can dig into without caring much about the man's lyrics.
  3. His ninth album, Years of Refusal, stares down existential dread with muscular glam-rock riffs, cheesy synths, heroic mariachi flourishes and a whole lot of punch lines.
