Irish Blood, English Heart
Label: Bmg Rights Management (Uk) Limited
The dignified one's first album in seven years finds plenty of desperate comedy amidst truly heartfelt odes to his new home in America and his English past. The songs carry a glammy punch, with the folksier ballads driven by his undiminished, unmistakable croon. "First of the Gang to Die" is Morrissey in top form.
