Their sound was great, unique, and influential, but people definitely tend to overrate them. Still an awesome band though, 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out' is definitely among my all time favorite songs.

They helped influence rock bands to continue after the hair-metal dominated 80s. Their legacy is visible in most of the great rock music today.

Is there any reason why one should not be allowed to dislike this band? I really would like to like them if for no other reason than the fact that Morrissey is a Sparks fan. Unfortunately I do not. A couple of their singles are quite nice, but to work thru an entire LP is hard work for me.

Possibly the greatest lyrics of all time. Great guitar/ bass playing, with a very competent drummer. Awesome band!

Marr - plain brilliant
Moz - the singular vocal-/lyricist who can make one literally lol.

Somebody once described this band to me as "dance-able depression" while I was sitting in a coffee-shop where they were playing on the radio. I fell in love with them there and they've only improved on every listen ever since.

One of the best songwriting "teams" IMO. Morrisey is an unique singer and Marr is a giant arranging songs.
They have above all this one great feature: their worst songs are still a 7, there is no garbage.
On the other side besides "how soon is now" their music tends to sound more or less alike. They have this sort of 4 or 5 type of songs template and until you're not familiar with the unique differences between the particular tunes they could sound monotonous.


This is one of my favourite bands no questions.
