World Peace Is None of Your Business

Being misunderstood is Morrissey's great joy in life, as he keeps proving in World Peace – a much stronger album than fans were expecting at this point. The fantastic title song is a doo-wop rant against cops, governments, armies, etc. Moz doesn't fare as well protesting Beefaroni (rhymes with "Ah, but lonely") or mean professors. But he saves two stunners for last: "Mountjoy" is his dear-hero-imprisoned lament for the late Irish writer Brendan Behan, and "Oboe Concerto" resembles the Smiths classic "Death of a Disco Dancer," as Morrissey mourns the dead companions of his youth, singing, "All I do is drink to absent friends."
