"Morrissey has never sung better, not so much soulfully as with an emotional elegance that consistently snaps the icy, burning words to attention." (Observer Music Monthly)

"ROTT's brilliance is built less on gimlet-eyed chutzpah-and rather more upon a sublime sonic framework, betraying a heightened confidence on the part of the author." (Mojo)

"More and more it seems that, like [Oscar] Wilde, he has put all his genius into the creation of his persona, and only his talent into the songs." (Uncut)
