(BMG)

A good year for Mor­ris­sey fans (alarm­ing po­lit­i­cal views aside) — a be­lated reis­sue of The Smiths’ The Queen Is Dead with rare tracks ex­humed and now his 11th solo al­bum. He’s long been do­ing it for the dis­ci­ples but it’s still a qual­ity af­fair and sur­pris­ingly po­lit­i­cal (Is­rael, Who Will Pro­tect Us From the Po­lice, I Bury the Liv­ing). A new co-writer in the mix, Mando Lopez, adds grunt and glam to My Love I’d Do Any­thing For You, while When You Open Your Legs is a car­nal car­ni­val. /CA
