When we posted Your Arsenal on our Facebook page as "the last Morrissey solo album that mattered," Labheads rushed to the defense of Vauxhall and I. On the strength, I revisited the 1994 release, and immediately realized I was wrong. Is there a better Moz opener "Now My Heart Is Full?" "I Am Hated For Loving" perfectly encapsulates the asexual Moz prose-speak floating over simple melodies. "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get" is the lineage of Moz declarative songs such as "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" and "The Lazy Sunbathers" creates another vague character in the Moz-verse next to Fatty, Alsatian Cousin, Bengali In Platforms, etc. And apparently, the original pressing of this is super-rare, going for $150-200 on the secondhand market (before this, the first vinyl repressing). Gatefold pressing with printed inner sleeves.
