I haven't listened to much 80's, but if there are other albums I love as much as this one then I'm excited to get into the decade!

A cohesive album without every song sounding the same, and a consistent one at that! And it's always fun how 'British' it sounds.

Amazing. So beautiful and emotional. Marr´s guitar playing and Morrissey's voice combined are incredible! There are some excelent melodies and songwritting here

I really like The Smiths, especially Morrissey's vocals. They're very warm and "British" without being very jarring like most punk bands. I love chilling to this album (and other works by this group). The Queen is Dead is a great opener and probably the highlight of the album to me. 80s alternative was ahead of its time.

The Smiths at their best: moody, intelligent, and wickedly funny.

The combination of Morissey’s lyrics and Marr's riffs always work beautifully together, but it feels like they do so on this album more than ever
