His fourth and finest solo album is, as the cover shot suggests, Morrisey's idea of hard rock. There's a gritty, glam feel to Mick Ronson's production (check the Ziggy Stardust cop on "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday"), while the loud'n'rude riffs of new guitarist Boz Boorer banish memories of the Smiths. Best news: for once the songs focus on adult life, not the man's well-documented adolescence. --Jeff Bateman

If you're a fan of Morrissey, you know he usually botches his re-issues quite badly. You have deleted tracks, parts of songs edited out, wrong-era photographs for the artwork, illogical tracklistings, and flimsy packaging. When I first heard that "Your Arsenal" was to be remastered and re-issued, I braced for the worst. You see, it's not only my favorite Morrissey album, but it's his finest solo effort in general. All around strong, showcasing the finest artistic quality of any of his work. What if he would have deleted "Seasick.." or "You're the one for me, Fatty"? I was worried.

Like the sheep that I am, I placed my pre-order for the CD and for the vinyl editions in early December. There was no way I was passing up getting even most of these songs remastered!

Days after I place the pre-order, it's revealed on his website that this re-issue would come with a bonus DVD of the live show from Halloween 1991. Particularly special for me as it was my very first ever Morrissey live show! Spectacular memories of a great halloween just a few minutes from my house. I was just 21 and I'd never seen anything like it. Example: Girls loved Dave Gahan on the Violator tour the year prior, but no one ever tried to storm the stage and hug him. The Morrissey experience was one of a kind, and the DVD was a welcomed bonus. However, I must warn you that it's just a coverted video sourced from a VHS recording so the picture quality isn't the best, but the sound is great, his band is very tight, and you're immersed in the experience I got to witness live.

The CD, thankfully, is presented in tact with its original song sequence. There are rumblings from fans that he tinkered too much when he decided to present the slightly longer and more powerful U.S.

This has to be my favorite Morrissey-solo album. It's just more consistent than anything else; the mood, especially, and the quality (even Vauxhall had a few weak songs). Some albums just seem to be collections of the songs that the artist happened to record at that time, arranged in a way that makes some sense, but Arsenal feels as though it was really concieved of as a complete work of art. From track one to track ten, the swagger and edge is consistent, from happier tracks (You're The One...) to the expected melancholy ones (We'll Let You Know). Seasick, Yet Still Docked might be a bit over the top ("Wish I knew the way / to reach the one I love / there is no way"), but its blunt, tired frankness sets it apart from similar songs in the Morrissey catalogue, and the stereotypical Smiths fan should lap it up. Aside from that, though - this is certainly Morrissey's other side, here, hinted at even in his Smiths days with songs like 'London;' a fiercer, more robust presonality, fascinated with the more gritty aspects of his nation. The humor, of course, remains intact, with songs like 'We Hate It...,' and his political side is displayed in 'Glamorous Glue' (not, as some have bizzarely suggested, in 'National Front...'). The closing track, Tomorrow, seems to me to be the epitome of the album, mixing the traditional sentiments ("Would you tell me that you love me / Oh, I know you don't mean it") with this reinventive loud, unwilting style.

Although it fades a bit in the final stretch, "Your Arsenal" rocks pretty hard, with Moz in complete rock star mode. He's moody, coy, pouty, sexual, asexual and ethereal(especially on the haunting "We'll Let You Know")and I found this to be one of his very best efforts. Encompassing all of his strengths and few of his musical weaknesses, the CD is tight, compact and extremely well-produced.
Also check out the live album "Beethoven Was Deaf", which includes much of the material found here in a live, rocking format.

i had heard Morrissey songs before in the past and i didn't really have much of an opinion on them. they seemed fine for what they were...but i had a hard time grasping just what all the fanatacism was about. until i heard Your Arsenal. then i understood and the curtain was lifted to reveal the allure of the Morrissey mystique. this album holds alot of personal special feeling and memories with it, but as a stand alone album, it is a masterpiece and a modern classic. the music thunders with a swagger and a confidence that draws heavy influence from Bowie, T-Rex, and a host of old rockabilly bands. draped with the charming vocals of Morrissey, the songs shine with a charm and a vigor that is life-affirming. it's really quite impossible to hand pick the best songs on here, because they are all truly great. a shining example of how wonderful a solid a Morrissey album can be...and one that revealed a whole new world of appreciation. consider me converted!

**NOTE: I beleive this IS a 5-star album, but have given the remastering job 4 stars. It does sound quite good, but like EVERY other Moz remaster thus far, it definitely falls short of what it could have been.**

The packaging is cheap cardboard - no jewel case - and all the album info is printed in microscopic letters on the back. The cover photo is the same, but the back cover is different. As usual, he tinkered slightly with the original album; Moz left off the original (UK) album version of Tomorrow and replaced it with the more dynamic US version. Why couldn't he just tack that on?!

The DVD - 31 October 1991 in Los Angeles - is really underwhelming, and is no more than a VHS transfer. The sound is tinny and weak, Moz is out of breath from being manhandled throughout the show, and the guitars are quite out of tune throughout the set. There is no power here, other than Spencer's drums.

I am definitely pleased I bought it, but if I had known about the DVD quality, I woulda saved the cash and just got the CD version.
