"Ten years ago, no one would have predicted how this decade would have turned out for Morrissey. When the ’00s kicked off, the semi-retired singer was living as a recluse in the Hollywood Hills, only coming out in daylight to take his pinstriped suits to the cleaners. But ever since he released You Are The Quarry in 2004, the former Smiths frontman has been on a undeniable roll, banging out triumphant albums like Years Of Refusal that are filled with the sort of punchy alt-rock tunes that should belong to artists half his age. (Seriously, if it weren’t for his theatrical singing on “Something Is Squeezing My Skull” you might confuse it for something by the Alkaline Trio.) But in 2009, that is exactly what made Morrissey so cool: He knows now that it’s practically his duty to emerge every few years and, with both style and grace, show the rest of us how it’s done."

I really like the last line

Agreed. I can't get enough of his last three studio albums. They rock me.
