Rule: any album featuring songs titled "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get," "I Am Hated For Loving" and "Lifeguard Sleeping, Girl Drowning" has to be worthy of at least cursory investigation. Morrissey's solo career since departing from the Smiths has been a largely uneven affair, fortune rising and falling mostly on his collaborators' musical visions. Morrissey himself consistently delivers a world view as colorful as it is doomed. (With the album's first few lines, the tone is set: "Everyone I love in the house will recline on an analyst's couch quite soon.") Vauxhall And I is considered to be the solo effort that most closely recalls the Smiths, since it features a lighter touch than many of his other efforts, and the closer symmetry to his old sound does invigorate Morrissey's melodies. (Let it be said,though, there is no substitute for Johnny Marr's fluid, swirling guitar lines.) "Why Don't You Find Out for Yourself," "I Am Hated For Loving," "Used to Be A Sweet Boy," and "The Lazy Sunbathers" are subdued takes on his musical past and immediately invite repeated listenings, slaking the inner thirst of most any Morrissey fan.
