Argueably this the smiths's best album in matter of instrumental madness, the bass, the guitar, and sometimes even the drums breaks the norm from an alternative mid-80s sound, leaving us with some intense sounding stuff. But I much prefer the more laid-back kind of Smiths, but this is still a great album.

Fantastic album. Apparently this made my dad go vegan for a short time in the 90's.

Of their first 3 albums (the only 3 I've listened to) this one easily stands out the most to me. Sure, it may not have "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out" or "This Charming Man" but as a whole, this album sounds more coherent when put next to their others.

I'm finding that I generally like The Smiths, but this album doesn't feel as strong as The Queen Is Dead.

The greatest Smiths album because I don't know. I just seem to prefer this over Queen is Dead. Barbarism is especially mindblowing! The guitar on the joke isnt funny anymore fucks me out ma mind erry time aswell. All the tracks are insane!

Probably their best constructed album, if that makes sense. Sort of concept album about Morrisey's struggles and society criticism, but the track listing is just an inch away from the debut and The Queen is Dead. Somewhere around Hateful of Hollow quality currently for me.
