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.
