Your Arsenal Definitive Remaster




Released in 1992, Your Arsenal was Morrissey’s third album proper, and though it wasn’t quite the masterpiece fans hoped for, its hard-edged glam-rockabilly sound won him legions of new followers. The album featured his new touring band, including guitarists Boz Boorer and Alain Whyte. They rip confidently through the Peter Gunn- like riffs of You’re Gonna Need Someone on Your Side, the Bolan boogie of Certain People I Know, and the goosestepping stomp of the much-misinterpreted The National Front Disco. You’re the One for Me, Fatty is a little too slight, but We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful and I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday are worth a revisit. The bonus DVD features a US concert that captures the spawning of Mozmania.
