Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Spin (p.82) - "The mordant humor and camp sensibility never wavers, nor does the inimitable voice."

Billboard (p.32) - "[The songs] show the artist's continued creative stretch, from the staggered orchestral layers of 'The Never-Played Symphonies' to the ambient 'Sweetie-Pie'..."

Q (Magazine) (p.136) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "With his trademark mix of comedy, tragedy and self-pity still a match for anyone, SWORDS is a collection of buried B-sides dating back to 2004."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his, a collection of often preposterously-named B-sides from his past four albums, gets the thumps-up."

Uncut (magazine) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Morrissey's compilation demonstrates yet again the man's peculiarly quixotic muse."
