World Peace Is None of Your Business
The 10th solo studio album from perennial downer and former Smiths frontman Morrissey, World Peace Is None of Your Business is exactly as indignant and pseudo-intellectual as the title suggests (and as the old chap’s career thus far would have you expect). However, Morrissey hasn’t earned legions of adoring fans simply by being a bit of a dick. The man has a certain charm — vulnerability behind the vitriol that continues to result in delicately attractive music. The title track, for example, has a sweet nursery-rhyme quality, despite the sentiments expressed. That theme runs throughout — sweet and sarcastic. Caustic caramel.
