I personally prefer their debut because I prefer the self-pitying lyrics to the social commentary offered here. But this is still a classic 80s album. Nothing else sounds quite like the Smiths.

The queen is dead, is always looked upon as The Smith's greatest album. I wouldn't disagree. It's got some of their best songs on it, and it's not a second too long. The boy with the thorn in his side, cemetery gate, frankly Mr.Shankly, there is a light that never goes out, big mouth strikes again, and the title track are all grade A Smith's songs. My only quibble is the lull on, I know it's over, and, never had no one ever, it just slows down the record to a frustrating pace. Apart from that it's superb. Great album.

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. MarrĀ“s guitar playing and Morrissey's voice combined are incredible! There are some excelent melodies and songwritting here
