The first 4 are easy for me, the next 7 can be very changeable. If the remastered version of Maladjusted was the original released album it would have a solid hold on 5 (and possibly a place higher.) Last night I listened to World Peace and Low back-to-back, it being the same band and producer and enjoyed it immensely. It really does feel like one big, consistent body of work.

It's a surprise to see LIHS ranked so highly. It seems to be getting a mixed reaction on here, from my perspective anyway.

I am one of the few that love Kill Uncle. World Peace is the only album I am not really crazy about. Low In High School may move up with more listens. My Top 8 are what I consider essential Morrissey.

Can't resist a list (well, other than perhaps List of the Lost):
1. Viva Hate (has 7-8 great songs)
2. Your Arsenal (5-6 great songs)
= 3. Vauxhall and World Peace (4-5 great songs)
= 5th Kill Uncle, Maladjusted, Years of Refusal (3-4 great songs)
8. Ringleader (2-3 great songs)
9. Quarry (1 great song)
10. Southpaw Grammar (no great songs)

Quarry 1 Great song, really?
I count at least 6, if you also count bonus tracks 9.

And Where is Low in High School?

I am surprised at how many people put Kill Uncle at the bottom. I will concede the album sounds thin but songs are great. The album has the swagger of Smiths album. I know Morrissey doesn't like it much either. He even left Tony The Pony off the remastered version. That song could have been a Smiths track. It swings like something off their first album and the arpeggiated guitar chords at the end sound like something Johnny Marr would have written. There is no way how I can see anyone putting his new album above Kill Uncle but I guess I am in the minority. Even Morrissey pans the album. I don't get it.

I don't dislike the album but I find the songs subject matter to be just ok and while his vocals and vocal melodies are great the music gets really thin in places. As a result other albums with more glaring flaws get more rotation as I care more about the songs lyrics and expect a song or two with a greater musical high to pop up and satisfy what I love about morrissey. Kill uncle is an album I enjoy when I'm in a pleasant mood and want a nice album that I don't have to think about a whole lot
