    I love Shoreline, and I think Morrissey is one of the greats of our generation. There are obviously much better recordings of the Smiths and Morrissey but this is a very solid album and obviously if you are a fan you should pick it up.

    Musically, there's nary a bad track. [No. 107, p.54]

    The accompanying live DVD, recorded at Shoreline Amphitheatre in 1992, is a good-enough bonus, rather than a must-have live document. These are minor quibbles of course; a whole stack of tacky badges couldn’t stand in the way of Your Arsenal being absolutely essential.

    "I need to rebuild a gang spirit," Morrissey said, and you can hear exactly that quality in the album's best moments. [Mar 2014, p.122]
