A perfect band. Amazing voice, and probably the best song writer, ever, Morrissey. And also the legend- Johnny Marr on guitar. A perfect duo in their own rights. Not to forget Rourke or Joyce either. Only saddening thing is their lack of time together and shortage of music. Regardless, a perfect score from me.

They perfected the type of pop rock they set out to make, their songs always sound masterfully crafted and ingenious, yet all noticeably different from one another, like the Beatles or Abba.

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.
