Morrissey’s 13 Favorite Albums Of All Time

Morrissey is celebrating Friday the 13th by celebrating his 13 favorite albums of all time. He sent the list to the Quietus, who published it with some context and background on each pick, and quotes from Morrissey himself on his picks. One thing you’ll notice right away: Many of Morrissey’s favorite albums are from seminal New York artists, and many lived and/or died at Hotel Chelsea. Or they’re heavily associated with New York, like Jeff Buckley and Brian Eno. The list:

Jobriath – Jobriath
Jeff Buckley – Grace
the Smoking Popes – Born To Quit
Damien Dempsey – Seize The Day
Roxy Music – For Your Pleasure
The Velvet Underground – The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground – White Light/White Heat
Sparks – Kimono My House
Iggy & The Stooges – Raw Power
Nico – Chelsea Girl
Patti Smith – Horses
Ramones – Ramones
