High Quality 180g Vinyl!
Produced by the late great Mick Ronson (ex David Bowie’s Spiders Of Mars), "Your Arsenal" although being Morrissey’s fourth solo album was a welcome return to the form of "Viva Hate". The atmosphere and tension of this album conjures up the spirits of original rock n’ roll and rockabilly which provide a suitable background for Morrissey’s doom-laden lyrics. Boosted by a brace of hit singles like "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful" (No.17 UK ’92), "You’re The One For Me Fatty" (No.19 UK ’92) and "Certain People I Know" (No.35 UK ’92), "Your Arsenal" boosted Morrissey’s critical following in the UK and boosted his commercial appeal in the US where it became his biggest ever album hit. The king of idiosyncratic lyrics scores consistently throughout this album especially on gems like "You’re Gonna Need Someone On Your Side" and "Glamorous Glue" which are worth the price of the album alone!
"A dynamic, invigorating fusion of glam rock and rockabilly, Your Arsenal rocks harder than any other record Morrissey ever made. Guitarist Alain Whyte's riffs swagger with a self-absorbed arrogance, and producer Mick Ronson gives the music a tough, stylish sheen -- it may be a break from Morrissey's jangle pop, but the music is sharper than at has been since the Smiths, and so is Morrissey's pen." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
