5.0 out of 5 stars This Charming Autobiography, 30 April 2015
The most well written autobiography from one of the most interesting characters in pop culture. Whether you're a fan of The Smiths, Morrissey's solo work or music in general, this is a must-read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the rabid reviews put you off..., 25 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Viva Hate (Audio CD)
Firstly, there's a good chance the existing reviews came from those who were alive when this album was first released, so I don't have that experience and perspective under my belt-- but I can say the remastering is impressive, done by John Davis and none other than Stephen Street himself. The tracks seem truly revitalised as if new life has been breathed into them, if the best sound is what you want this is the version to get.

As for the 'replaced' track, I can understand why people are upset about 'The Ordinary Boys' being omitted and replaced with an unrefined track from the Viva Hate recording sessions-- but for me, the track lends itself much better to the mood of the album (and it's far more 'Mozzy' than 'The Ordinary Boys'). It is a shame Treat Me Like A Human Being didn't originally get the spot it has now, and that it wasn't developed beyond its current state. You could make the argument that removing the track tampers with a masterpiece, but if it is the original you want it is readily available.

The only 'unfair' complaint I could make is that it lacks something 'extra' to celebrate itself, much like how the 'Your Arsenal' and 'Vauxhall And I' remasters both included a live DVD/CD respectively-- I feel that is where this and the 'Kill Uncle' remasters (especially 'Kill Uncle') miss the mark. But as far as the CD itself goes I can't really fault it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome improvement., 15 Feb. 2014

This is a splendid remastering of one of his once-least popular albums.

The only thing I found lacking was the presentation, while it isn't mandatory I think a collection of photographs or a concert DVD (much like the up-coming 'Your Arsenal' remaster) would have complimented the album well.

It is well worth it even if you own the original. My personal favourite tracks: 'Sing Your Life', 'Our Frank' and 'Asian Rut'.

5.0 out of 5 stars An early and unrecognised classic., 24 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Wonderful Woman (MP3 Download)
I cannot put it any simpler than this: 'Wonderful Woman' is a lost masterpiece. Having not appeared on a studio album and only receiving B-side recognition it is not one track The Smiths are remembered for-- and after hearing it, it probably should be. I place this in the same boat as 'Jeane' which suffers the same heart-breaking neglect while remaining one of their best tracks, both hold that romance that is regularly attributed with The Smiths in their early years- at their most raw.

All-in-all, this track does not disappoint.
