"''Maladjusted"'' is an album by rock artist Morrissey, released on August 12, 1997. The album (particularly the lead single "Alma Matters") was praised at the time as a return to form for Morrissey, albeit one without the broad appeal of some of his earlier work. These days it is usually seen as his poorest work, possibly after ''Kill Uncle'', although it is by no means considered terrible.
Morrissey released "Alma Matters" on July 21, 1997 to support his upcoming album. The song premiered on the KROQ Jed The Fish show on July 4, 1997. It was well received by fans and critics alike, praised for its surprisingly upbeat sound. The single reached #16 in the United Kingdom, making it Morrissey's highest charting single in the decade between the ''Vauxhall and I'' and ''You Are the Quarry'' releases.
''Maladjusted'' was Morrissey's attempt to integrate the torch songs that he experimented with on Vauxhall & I'' with the indie rock of his earlier career. His efforts were largely successful. In addition to "Alma Matters", the tracks "Trouble Loves Me", "Ammunition, and "Roy's Keen" stand out as high-quality songs reminiscent of the ''Vauxhall and I'' and ''Your Arsenal''...
