It’s no secret that Morrissey’s been gearing up to release his first new studio album in five years next month, but the former Smiths frontman also has just reissued one of his best solo efforts, 1994’s Vauhxall and I — and we’ve got 10 copies to hand out to lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs readers in the U.S., courtesy of the fine folks at Parlophone Records.

The “20th anniversary edition definitive master” of Vauxhall and I, as it’s known, includes a newly remastered edition of the 11-song album on one disc, and a 14-track concert recorded in London on Feb. 27, 1995, on the second disc. See full tracklist below.

TO ENTER: In the comments section below, please name your favorite Morrissey solo album — and, if you’re feeling so inclined, offer up a few words as to just what it is about it that you think makes it so great. If you’re using the Slicing Up Eyeballs app, please email your entry to with the subject line “The more you ignore me, the closer I get… to winning a free Morrissey CD.”

RULES: This contest is open only to U.S. residents (sorry, label’s rules). We’ll take entries until 5 p.m. EDT Friday, June 20. After that point, we’ll select 10 winners at random and contact them via their provided e-mail addresses. One entry per person. Good luck, and godspeed.

UPDATE: OK, contest is now closed. Thank you so much for sharing your Morrissey favorites. Winners have been notified via email.
