A great album through and through. The way the songs going from energetic to soft and solemn is seamless. Typical pop song structure is thrown out the window many times on the album making for more interesting listening and the lyrics are daring. I'm a big fan of the combination of the electric and acoustic guitars and, of course, Morrisey's delivery. Favorite songs: You've Got Everything Now, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, This Charming Man, Hand in Glove

What a breath for alternative music, a cold and suffocated breath indeed, but a much needed one. The Smiths came with a sound that was simple, in a time of extravagances, of synths, of eletric drums, they came with a open sound, that in each and every music of them, sounded more like a poem.

This is a great album with every track having something to offer - in particular Reel Around the Fountain, This Charming Man, and What Difference Does it Make - on which that opening guitar is astounding and gets me bouncing inside every time
