Rank Morrissey's 21st century LPs

Maybe too much nostalgia doesn't allow to be objective about Morrissey's last albums, which, I think, are very good and deserve a better recognition. What do you think? How would you rank them?

You are the quarry
Ringleader of the tormentors
Years of refusal
World peace is none of your business
Low in high school
I am not a dog on a chain

Reckless Endangerment
Quarry
Ringleader
LIHS
World Peace
Refusal
Dog

If we're throwing California Son in, it'd probably be tied with - maybe above World Peace. I like a number of the tracks on World Peace individually, but for me the flow of the songs/overall energy of the album is much stronger on the albums above it.

6. Low in High School

Ringleader and Years of Refusal both have strong first halves with songs that are overall stronger than most of Dog, but they both fall apart after. Dog is more consistent even though it doesn't have strong songs like You Have Killed Me or Mama Lay Softly on the Riverbed.

I guess they'd be equal depending on my mood. The obvious stinker is Low in High School.

Actually I was surprised how hard this was, since all albums have their moments. World Peace would drop several places if only the 12-track regular version was allowed. (The deluxe of LIHS adds nothing to the original album IMHO). California Son I just don't find very interesting at all, so it's clearly the last in my list.

Swords
Quarry
low in high school

It was a tough choice between world peace and dog on a chain but I felt like dog on a chains return to humor pushed it over the edge to top the list

Morrissey Isn’t Very Good

He hasn’t made a good album this century. Ringleader comes closest, but even that is patchy. Quarry is bloody awful and the rest are unlistenable. The new one is utter dog shit. 4 OK tunes, but his elderly hatred just comes through.
