Years of Refusal (Lost Highway)

It took The Moz about 15 years, since Vauxhall and I, to figure out if that angsty concert-rock shit ain't broke, don't fix it. Although Years of Refusal won't win any new Moz-ites, fans will delight in the dramatic but hilarious musings on mortality. The charming older man does have some new tricks, though. He rhymes through a list of anti-anxiety drugs with garage-rock glam on "Something Is Squeezing My Skull." On the slow lament "You Were Good In Your Time" he asks a washed-up celeb, "Were you actually aware that you died?" and proves he's still full of life on "When I Last Spoke to Carol," which sounds like a Smiths tune wrapped in flamenco.
