What I can say that people haven't already said when It was released? As a millenial (I don't like this word but ok), I wasn't there to see then live or anything, but when you listen to this, you FEEL like you're in the 80s, or at least, how we percieve how It was back then. The feeling of loneliness, when you don't have much to do, spenting the day in bed, looking at the ceiling, wondering about the things happening that are never the way you want them to be. The other side of the coin is also retracted, the fearless sentiment of being young, of dying young, of cemetaries, the curiosity for death, for life, for going out with friends and not wanting to go home to stare at the ceiling again. "The Queen Is Dead" is one of those albums that is a painting of it's generation, a painting that we can see and aprecciate now, like we were there.
This is one of those albums where the second half is a lot better than the first, even though the first half is still a 10/10. The Queen is Dead isn't just great, it's one of the best albums I've ever heard. From the inflection of Morrissey's vocals, and the crisp instrumentation and production, every song flows so well, and feels like everything goes by so quickly, and not in a bad way. The Smith's are one of the best bands in the 80's, and while this is their best albums, all of their releases are pretty close to being on par with this. The Queen is Dead feels so focused, like they really want to bring out the best in them, on this album. Dis album a masta piece, den outta den.
By far the best of the band's studio albums (and the others aren't shabby either), this is arguably the greatest indie rock album ever made.
Bigmouth Strikes Again / The Boy With The Thorn In His Side / There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
The Queen Is Dead / Frankly Mr Shankly / Cemetery Gates / Vicar In A Tutu
One of those albums that you have to come back to realize its brilliance, but certainly doesn't stand out as "Wow this is a freaking masterpiece for the ages." In fact, I may rate one or two of The Smiths other albums higher than this one.
One of my favourite Smiths albums with some great songs and witty lyrics. I even bought a new Vinyl LP recently because the original got lost on the journey through my life.
The Queen is Dead
Bigmouth Strikes Again
The Boy With The Thorn in his Side
There I A Light That Never Goes Out
Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others
But it's a mixed bag because I don't really like "Vicar In A Tutu" and a lot of the A-Side tracks.
The 2017 Deluxe Edition has two extra CDs with demos and live versions. But I think the live performances on "Rank" are better and the only preferred demo track is "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others". (album rating: 67%)

This album is my favorite album from the 80's without a doubt. Incredible lyrics and a very smooth flow throughout the album.
The songwriting on this album is amazing. This is easily the best from the Smiths.
The Smiths are my favorite band of the 80s hands down, and this is their true masterpiece. Not putting this at number 1 was a hard decision for me, because I literally cant count how many times I've hard all these songs. And they dont get old. Its weird, I literally cannont get tired of this album, no matter how much I hear it. Its just too perfect. I could probably write an essay on each and every song. If I had to pick one song for you to take from this masterpiece, it would probably be "I Know Its Over". One of those songs where the lyrics and the music couldn't be more in unison. Its heartbreaking and uplifting and was eerily relate able to me at the time I was getting into the Smiths. This record has Johnny Marr is at his absolute best with his Jangle Style and lofty guitar work. You can't not love this album. Period.
