The critics have turned on the graying Master of Mope and the early reviews were unusually savage. Perhaps that's because after 1995's inventive and rockin' Southpaw Grammar, the man has run out of steam--an idea underlined by the ho-hum lead track, "Alma Matters." Let's hope rumblings of a reunion with Johnny Marr are true. --Jeff Bateman

'Maladjusted' is a step below some of Morrissey's other albums (namely: 'Viva Hate', 'Vauxhaul and I', and 'You are the Quarry') nevertheless, it does not deserve the negative reviews it gets - and is an interesting portrait of an artist who has come to the edge of frustration - and uses this frustration to create art. 'Alma Matters' is a classic Morrissey tune as is 'Ammunition' and 'Wide to Receive' - there are also a few tunes that are lower than classic Morrissey - 'Maladjusted' and 'Roy's Keen' - but are still good! This is a highly playable album - and I find it strangeley comforting when I'm in a bad mood - you should check it out - underrated!

Look, I'm not giving SPM less than 5 stars, and the songs on this cd are worth listening to year after year. Morrissey is simply a little brighter and more interesting than the run of doofuses who put out highly marketed products. STILL... on this cd, on tracks like "Papa Jack", "Alma Matters" and "Sorrow Will Come in the End", he sounds a bit sorry for himself. Contrary to what a lot of people think, Morrissey has never been a whiner; his songs hilariously poke fun at himself. Imagine Madonna or Eddie Vedder laughing at their heavy and self-important images - doesn't happen. Unfortunately, on this product, Morrissey gets all sincere and seems to lose his edge slightly. Maybe the career downturn that followed the poor reception of this album will spur him to get it back. I can't wait for the next Morrissey. "The Teachers Are Afraid.." on the last album was a groundbreaking track. Maybe that suggests a new direction for one of pop's resident geniuses.

OK, first, I'm not one of these cheapos who hate re-issues because they're too broke to buy the re-release. I'm also definitely NOT a lame person who thinks it makes them more of a Morrissey/Smiths fan because they wrote "RE-ISSUE, REPACKAGE, REPACKAGE!" as though we haven't all heard the Strangeways album a million times.

I am a HUGE fan of re-issues if it is REMASTERED and if it contains BONUS tracks. Both of which have been done very well here. NOW, with that said, Morrissey forced them to drop 2 tracks that he was now embarrassed of... So instead of getting the value of more tracks being brilliantly remastered, I have a strangely sequenced re-release without these 2 songs - and two songs that will never see remastering.

I know all of us as hardcore, devout fans will defend him to the death, but I do not believe for a second that he never intended for them to be on the record...

So I load it into iTunes and find that there's enough space left on the disc to have included those songs... sigh... I love the contents of this one, but wish I could have had remastered versions of all songs from the Maladjusted Sessions. And the smartypants who tries to reply, "Then Don't Buy it", that isn't an option; I buy everything he puts out.

This is simply songwriting at its finest. Period. I'm baffled by some of the bad reviews I've seen. Are you people tone-deaf or just lacking in any musical taste. This album is a classic from start to finish. Wide to Receive is an all-time classic. It's good enough to be on the Beatles White album, or U2's Joshua Tree, or REM's Green, or The Cure's Wish album. If you like the forementioned albums than you will love this album. Trouble loves me is another beatlesque ballad. Satan Rejected My Soul is hilarious. With lyrics like "Satan rejected my soul, as low as he goes he never quite goes this low," you get a sense that Morrissey, although very much in tune with his misery also knows how to laugh at himself. The musicianship and production (thanks to Steve Lillywhite)is FLAWLESS. Even if your a hard-headed and stubborn fan of his early stuff, you should love this album. I'm a fan of The Smiths, but come on!...everyone has to mature, and this album is maturation at its finest. Morrissey has truly come into his own. I can only be so lucky that his next album is half as good.

Morrissey never loses a step; he never disappoints. As far as solo work goes, I can rank this among my two favorite solo albums, Bona Drag and Vauxhall. Along with these two albums, Maladjusted is a third of the essential Morrissey trilogy. The only song that I didn't do cartwheels for was "Papa Jack" (sorry MOZ). It wasn't an aweful song, but the others were just SO GREAT. I've never seen Morrissey in concert; I had front-row tickets to a Minneapolis show that he had to cancel, but he is THE MOST HONEST, RELATIVE, AND ORIGINAL ARTIST IN THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS. Maladjusted is Morrissey at his best (and he's been there many times before). I love the Smiths, but in my opinion, Morrissey's solos have been just as powerful as any Smiths' song. If Moz ever wants a good vegetarian meal, he is certainly welcome at my house. Come on over! As far as this album goes, "Wide to Receive" is a nice commentary on the cyberworld today. "Roy's Keen" is a very fun not-much-too-think-about song. The last two songs on this Maladjusted album are so powerful that words cannot even begin to comment on them. Morrissey is the greatest; there's no doubt about it. This is one of the best (it's quite difficult to say which one is THE BEST from him).
