I love these songs. What a treat for us, the listeners. Any one can be a critic but try being something more. At first I thought this album sounded like a bunch of b-sides with a few stronger songs but after many listens, it is a great album. The lyrical content alone is worth great praise. "On the streets I ran" is a strong song as well as tracks, 1, 3, 4, 8, etc

This would have to be one more of a number of Morrissey albums, where you get the feeling Morrissey didn't bring the same passion with him into the studio as he has on other releases. It's all very nice, it's all very pleasing, and it's all very ..., well. The single You Have Killed Me sums it up perfectly. A catchy pop song out of hundreds Morrissey writes in his sleep. And no way near the beauties on his former album You Are The quarry, notably, I Have Forgiven Jesus which You Have Killed Me sounds like a bleak take from.

Fans of Morrissey will, of course, love this album as much as anything else the Mozzer releases. And get a chance to hear a Morrissey in love (Dear God Please Help Me) which is both very pathetic, very annoying, and very painstakingly beautiful. All at once. But newcomers should look elsewhere to get an introduction to Moz' world. Viva Hate (the amazing, breathtaking, untouchable solo debut album) or the aforementioned You Are The Quarry for starters. These have far more edge, fun, and presence than Ringleader, which - do forgive me! - for now lands in the pile of to-do cds :o(

Oh, I might add that the complimentary dvd doesn't add anything special, so be happy to go with the first "for sale" cd-only issue of Ringleader you come across. I mean, it IS Morrissey, so ... ;o)
