Morrissey Lists His 13 Favorite Albums Of All Time

The guys behind excellent British music site The Quietus have just tweeted this message: “Apologies to anyone having trouble with the site, Morrissey's favourite albums have conspired to slow it right down. We're pumping in RAM.” Yes, the former Smiths singer has contacted the Quietus to deliver his 13 favorite albums of all time, and while he has refrained from commenting on them, it still makes for interesting, if slightly predictable, reading.


No one will be surprised to see the New York Dolls’ eponymous debut topping the list, and the inclusion of Nico, Sparks and the Velvet Underground won’t raise too many eyebrows either. But in the lower reaches of the chart there are a few unusual choices—did anyone peg Morrissey as a Jeff Buckley fan? Or as an enthusiast of folky Irish singer Damien Dempsey? Head over to the Quietus for commentary on the list, which looks like this:


01. New York Dolls: New York Dolls

02. Ramones: Ramones

03. Patti Smith: Horses

04. Nico: Chelsea Girl

05. Iggy & The Stooges: Raw Power

06. Sparks: Kimono My House

07. The Velvet Underground: White Light/White Heat

08. The Velvet Underground: The Velvet Underground & Nico

09. Roxy Music: For Your Pleasure

10. Damien Dempsey: Seize The Day

11. Smoking Popes: Born To Quit

12. Jeff Buckley: Grace

13. Jobriath: Jobriath
