Morrissey - Low In High School (Etienne)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
The former lead singer of The Smiths has always come up with some great song titles but he hasn't stopped here as this new album has some great titles such as I Bury The Living and Who Will Protect Us From The Police?
His solo career has been a bit up and down but now on his 11th studio album which was recorded in Ennio Morricones Rome studio he seems to have found his stride again.

He has observed what is going on in the world right now, I Bury The Living is all about the ravages of war whilst In Your Lap is about the Arab scene.
He has been on many record labels over the years and he documents this on Home Is A Question Mark where he says "I've wined and dined with every bogus music mogul".
He seems to have surrounded himself with a good set of musicians too and it is not just his lyrics that draw you on this album: there are bossa nova tracks, guitar leads and songs you would not associate with Morrissey.
He might have a go at everyone on the album but it is not as gloomy as you might expect.
I give the album 3 out of 5
