I know this album has achieved sacrosanct status but I do have problems with it. The lyrics are great - witty, poetic honest and ironic- sometimes all at once but some of the tracks seem a little lame to me. 'Some girls are bigger than others' and 'Vicar in a tutu' for example. However, 'There is a light…" and "I know it's over'' are godlike genius and the best Smiths songs ever IMHO.

Overall, as albums I prefer The Smiths and Meat is Murder.

From track 6 Bigmouth Strikes Again through to tthe closing track 10 Some Girls are Bigger Than Others is what makes this a classic.

Fantastic album. While the lyrics were at times repetitive, the pure energy in the vocals and music made the album."I Know It's Over" was the highlight track.
