At least you racist stans know, “Vauxhall & I” is indeed Moz’s magus opus and hasn’t made an album as vulnerable & personal like “Vauxhall”

Interesting that you rate Refusal lower than Ringleader. Neither are great, but I feel Ringleader sounds like him reaching a creative stasis, but Refusal (which is more consistent and with some significant highs) sounds like a re-emergence. Nevertheless, after those two consecutive efforts, I was wondering if he’d ever make a five-star classic ever again.

Vauxhall & I
Viva Hate
Your Arsenal
^These 3 can fight for #1 depending on the day
Kill Uncle
IANADOAC
Maladjusted
Low In High School
Years Of Refusal
You Are The Quarry
WPINOYB
Ringleader
Southpaw Grammar

I'm a big fan of Beethoven Is Deaf and if Bona Drag can be counted as an album, it would be top 3
Ringleader above Southpaw: controversial.

Silent Reader

On Timeout
1-Southpaw Grammar
2-Vauxhall & I
3- Your Arsenal
4- Viva Hate
5- Years Of Refusal
6- Ringleader Of The Tormentors
7- Low In High School
8- I Am Not A Dog On A Chain
9- You Are The Quarry
10- Maladjusted
11- World Peace Is None Of Your Business
12- Kill Uncle
13- California Son

But to be honest, if Southpaw is 10/10, California Son is a 6 at worst. There isn’t a lot in it. He really hasn’t done a ‘bad’ album.

I think this is one of Morrissey's strongest albums in a while.

If I had to rank his solo discography, it would be this. Of course, this always changes but IANADOAC ranks pretty high for me.
  1. Viva Hate
  2. Kill Uncle
  3. Ringleader of the Tormentors
  4. You Are The Quarry
  5. Vauxhall & I
  6. Years of Refusal
  7. I Am Not A Dog On A Chain
  8. Your Arsenal
  9. Southpaw Grammar
  10. Maladjusted
  11. World Peace Is None Of Your Business
  12. Low In High School
  13. California Son
Long live Morrissey!!!!!!
Um. I think you need to pause and consider.

Enough! or Too much
Bona Drag
Viva Hate
Vauxhall and I
Your Arsenal

After these four, to me the order doesnt matter because there is nothing there worth ranking.

There are a lot of marvelous albums after those, however I agree with placing Bona Drag as his best ALBUM.
And, yes, the word has to be written in bold, a big font, and I could not find he underline effect or I would have added it too.

The ones who state that "it's just a compilation" do not understand at all the difference
between a "compilation" and an album that got recorded in chapters and was so incredibly good that all the songs have been released as singles (or B-sides) in advance. I also love I am not a dog on a chain, his 14th album.
