This review is from: The Smiths (Audio CD)
As far as debuts go, this could not be labelled as explosive, but maybe this is because morrissey and marr dare to explore more mature topics than other bands of the time. From the first track (Reel Around The Fountain) the listener can tell how important this album would have been at the time, but also now. The relevance of 'Suffer Little Children' and 'The Hand That Rocks The Cradle' will never diminish and by listeneing to the lyrics, the listener will appreciate this fact. Morrissey explores a number of topics including dis-satisfaction in relationships (Pretty Girls Make Graves) jealousy (You've Got Everything Now) and sexuality (This Charming Man) With such a wealth of important topics, this album easily makes my top 10.
