Great album but it's not the Smiths' best IMO. It's the 3rd best behind the debut and Meat is Murder. I think the other albums are more upbeat (faster) and Johnny Marr showcases his skills more.

I don't really get it...Morissey is a great singer, and "The Queen Is Dead" (the song) is incredible. Then there's the rest of the album...like, it's kind of funny, but it gets repetitive, and some of it is just stupid (tks 8 + 10), others plain morbid (3, 4) and the music isn't exactly exceptional either. So I don't really get the best album ever claims...

Great Album! Morrissey's vocals are my favourite aspect of the album. My favourite song on the album would have to be "Bigmouth Strikes Again".

Favorite Tracks: Frankly, Mr. Shankly, I Know It's Over, Bigmouth Strikes Again, The Boy with the Horn in His Side, There Is a Light That Never Goes Out, Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others

This has already been said before but I think it's true, this is The Smiths' BEST album. Morrissey's lyrics are his finest particularly in "I Know It's Over" and "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out". Johnny Marr's jangly guitar playing is best showcased in "Bigmouth Strikes Again" and "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others" 10/10

Fav. Tracks:
- I Know It's Over
- Cemetry Gates
- Bigmouth Strikes Again
- The Boy With The Thorn In His Side
- There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

An excellent album overall. Love Morrisey's voice & production flavor of the album. Favs: "There IS a Light...." "Cemetary Gates" & "I Know It's Over" A+++ essential & never goes long without a spin. MEZ

I preferred Meat Is Murder, but this is most certainly their second best album.
