What is so great about Morrissey is the quality of songs he has produced in the course of his career...to pick 10 fron the JC era is hard and when you start to look back you realise what a gift we have from an artist of his age.. absolutely amazing stuff.
My 10 are:
I Thought you were dead
I wish You Lonely
Spent the Day In Bed
Istanbul
Forgive Someone
Knockabout World
Once I Saw a River clean
Darling, I Hug A Pillow
My Hurling Days are Done

I think Joe Chiccarelli has been a very positive influence on Morrissey's career over the past several years. The lyrics haven't always worked during this period, but I think the production has generally been strong and some of these releases have been underrated up to now.

In chronological order:

1, Staircase at the University
2, Art-hounds
3, Istanbul
4, Home is a Question Mark
5, Some Say I Got Devil
6, Jim Jim Falls
7, Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?
8, What Kind of People Live in These Houses
9, Once I Saw the River Clean
10, My Hurling Days Are Done
