Despite the intervening years, Quarry sounds cut from exactly the same cloth as the last couple of Morrissey albums, which is to say that at best, it represents a bit of a holding pattern and at worst, it continues the slow artistic decline begun with 1995's lackluster Southpaw Grammar.
EndaMMar 14, 2007Absolutely excellent. I often return to this record and have SUCH a soft spot for it even now.
KyleWJan 17, 2005I love Morrisssey
buluteJan 4, 2006Good works and sad songs are in this album.Todays its hard to find good albums but Morrissey is still with us.
JohnBMay 30, 2004This album becomes more and more amazing the oftener I hear it - I am enchanted and happy-saddened by 'I'm Not Sorry' and 9;America is Not The World' - there is a beautiful sweep and bend in Morrissey's voice I have not heard before - I feel as though he is once again at the height of his powers. Revenge is so so so sweet.… Expand
moomooFeb 15, 2006I really enjoy this album. As some mentioned, it's not quite The Smiths, but duh - it's not a Smiths record! :P
S.L.O'RobotApr 8, 2006I came to the party a little late with Morrissey, not really giving him much credence until I heard the collection, "Bona Drag," which I still cherish.
