minus the numerous best-of's, of course

my vote goes to louder than bombs, mearly for the sheer quantity of brilliant songs on it.

But if you're only gonna know one Smiths album, that's the one to know by a longshot.

The Queen is dead is their only consistant album. Cemetry Gates is hands down my favorite song by them. The rest of their albums have good songs on them, but are also filled with crappy songs to. If you don't believe me listen to Meat is Murder or Strangeways Here We Come.

It changes all the time, but it's always either the queen is dead, meat is murder or louder than bombs.

I'd be very interested to hear what crappy songs <i>Meat Is Murder</i> is "filled" with.

Something like that. Smiths' albums are all screwed up. <i>Meat Is Murder</i> and <i>The Queen Is Dead</i> are their only "real" albums, but all of them tend to be well compiled and packaged nonetheless. Even with <i>Meat Is Murder</i>, though, only some copies have "How Soon Is Now?" I'm glad I'm not a collector, because it's a nightmare.

ok. i really don't listen most stuff from the 1980s anyways.. my big sister really likes the smiths though and that is why i kind of like that cd. it isn't near as good as metallica though.

Meat is Murder (too preachy)
That Joke isn't funny anymore
I want the one I can't have
and to a certain extent How Soon is Now?

Just to name a few. The album does nothing for me. I just didn't listen to it very much because I felt it was just kinda bland. For my money, the Queen is Dead is one Smiths release that keeps me interested in it for the whole disc. Other than the Singles disc and maybe Louder Than Bombs.

Yeah, it is. I forgot about that one. So is their debut. But for some reason those don't count in my mind.

I can at least understand the first two, but the last two are probably my favorites on the album.

I only clicked on this thread 'cos I thought there might be a "NONE: they all suck arse because even Johnny Marr's amazing musical genius wasn't enough to overcome the incredible shitness of Morrisey's stupid fucking awful voice." option in the poll.

I'll get me coat

If it makes you feel better, your wrong opinion is a popular one.
