5.0 out of 5 stars and nowwwww, the end is near....., 12 July 2000
By 
This review is from: Strangeways, Here We Come (Audio CD)
I bought this on vinyl on the day of its release, way back then. I rate it highly enough to buy it again on cd. The group split about two weeks after this was released, and a south bank show special which I still have on vhs brings home just how good they really were. "Paint a vulgar picture" hints that they knew the end was near and berates the compilations which were all that was released after this album. Perhaps it is a measure of how much people wanted more from the smiths that the best of takes two cds, and there is a singles album too. But this is the last real album and up there with the best. Morrisey evens plays piano on it. "I wont share you" features a sublime mandolin performance from Marr, with a harmonica fade that leaves you wishing there was more. The final irony is that EMI signed them only a few weeks before so they got two artists for the price of one. "Death of a disco dancer","rush and a push","I started something", all good tracks. Who knows what might have been."Stop me if you think youve heard this one before" is as cheeky and knowing as the title suggests. Enjoy
