Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 473/500!
The self-titled debut album for The Smiths was originally released in
February 1984 and was well received by the critics and fans. The album helped to
establish the group as a prominent band of the '80s music scene in the UK.
"I recognize that mystical air/It means I'd like to seize your underwear," Morrissey moans, and rock music was never the same. The Smiths' debut is a showcase for Morrissey's morose wit and Johnny Marr's guitar chime, trudging through England's cheerless marshes in "Still Ill" and "This Charming Man." - www.rollingstone.com
