Southpaw
Break Up the Family
Once I Saw the River Clean
Seasick, Yet Still Docked
First of the Gang to Die
The Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye
Lifeguard Sleeping, Girl Drowning
I'll Never Be Anybody's Hero Now
One Day Goodbye Wil Be Farewell
Roy's Keen
The Girl From Tel Aviv Who Wouldn't Kneel
Kiss Me A Lot
Loneliness Remembers What Happiness Forgets

Genius = First of the gang, Tel Aviv, Once I saw,
Good to great = Southpaw, Seasick, Break up, Hero now, Lifegaurd
Bit rubbish = Goodbye will be, Roy's keen, Kiss me,
Bloody awful = Harsh truth
 
I'll Never Be Anybody's Hero Now (The music's nothing special, but this might be my favorite song of his vocally speaking, particularly the ending. Morrissey's falsetto and his ability to flip between head voice and chest voice was better than ever during YATQ and ROTT era)
Break Up the Family
Seasick, Yet Still Docked
First of the Gang to Die
Once I Saw the River Clean
One Day Goodbye Wil Be Farewell
The Girl From Tel Aviv Who Wouldn't Kneel (I really like the music on this and wish he'd sing over more tracks like it. Too bad the lyrics aren't all that great on this one)
Lifeguard Sleeping, Girl Drowning
Southpaw (Love the music. The 2nd half feels a bit ahead of it's time by a few years, like a proto-early 2000s style post-rock track)
Loneliness Remembers What Happiness Forget (One of my favorites off of California Son. But it ranks low compared to the tracks above)
Kiss Me A Lot (Beats out Roy's Keen only due to the more energetic vocal performance)
Roy's Keen (Poor Alain and company. I like their contributions to this track. Morrissey's, no so much. The curse of Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others strikes again)
The Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye (I definitely don't hate this song. I just never feel compelled to revisit it)
