I think this is a good album but it's overrated on this site. There isn't that one song or songs that grab me. How Soon is Now? Panic, Please Please Let Me Get What I Want are those type of songs. I don't see it here.

One of the rare albums on which I've rated every track 90+. That's why the perfect 100 overall.

Every song is mint, but I'll give "boy with a thorn" a very, very little edge
Over "there is a light" for my number one on this epic of one of my top
Ten albums of all time.

One of the best albums ever conceived. Combining the best of Morrissey's voice, jangle instrumentation and lyrics the band had to offer. This truly could be the best for its decade.

so much of a grower, it's unbelievable. Morrissey's cynical humour in combination with a strong rhythmic section and that catchy guitar works so well.
