With the last album having sunk in well enough with most of us I presume, it's time for the old game.
Rank all of Morrissey's 11 studio albums, no Bona Drag allowed!!
Here's mine.

1. Vauxhall and I
2. Viva Hate
3. You Are the Quarry
4. Your Arsenal
5. Low in High School
6. Southpaw Grammar
7. World Peace is None of Your Business
8. Maladjusted
9. Kill Uncle
10. Ringleader of the Tormentors
11. Years of Refusal

As always it’s subject to change depending on I’m tired of and how I’m feeling. The bottom four feel fairly consistent and the group in the middle are all so close that almost anything could move them around. I will say that though I didn’t add bona drag and swords they are both albums that I love and would be in my top four if I was adding them

Top three are pretty much unassailable. The rest depends on my mood. Sometimes, for example, I'm in a Kill Uncle mood; and, when I am, I love it.

I agree about kill uncle. It’s a tough one to rate. It’s not that it’s a bad album but I’ve always described it as slight so it’s only great when I’m in a particular mood

I don't consider myself obstinate, provocative or 'edgy' (I will leave that to those far better qualified here :) )
That said, I truly can't rank the albums.
I've bought hundreds of singles, 12"s and multiple copies of albums etc and never really rated them in that manner.
Viva... was special to me because the horror I felt seeing The Smiths break and then seeing the chaos and excitement at Wolverhampton thereafter and the fact there even was an album - well, I return to it always because of this.
The critical response to Vauxhall renewed my love of the music - it made me glad to be a 'fan' and that body of work is still something I'd never turn off if I heard it.
Maladjusted, too, has me returning to it - for reasons not befitting a web forum.
Quarry - with its build-up, marketing (being a huge fan of the Attack products/iconography) and coming back from the 'wilderness' remains a high point too (that 'wilderness' seemed like forever).
Mentioning these specifically doesnt diminish my love of other albums though.
Obviously, one thing to mention is that some of the tracks we all love and listen to repeatedly never featured on any 'official' album.
Regards,
FWD.

Only joking!

I like 'em all and the only ones I was truly concerned about were the first five. The rest could go in any order and I'd still be happy!

Glad to see the love for world peace. Despite the silliness surrounding its launch it and swords has been my go to morrissey albums for a while now. To me it’s a classic morrissey

Not much love for Kill Uncle so far is there! It was my first Moz Tour and holds great memories for me.

I'd predict that I am not going to end up listening to future releases very much, so this can probably be considered definitive.
