5.0 out of 5 stars Complete apart from Wonderful Woman and Whats the world, 14 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete (MP3 Download)
If you download the complete Smiths you do actually get everything they recorded apart from Wonderful Woman and What's the World both available on the Sound of The Smiths. I had never heard the Troy Tate version of Reel Around The Fountain it is sublime - would love to hear the whole Troy Tate album as the production on the first album is still poor.
Listening again to all the albums there is always one song that is poor and means I can never give a 10. The best album is definitely The Queen is dead - apart from Never had no one ever and the lyrics to Some Girls are bigger than others. Death at ones elbow is atrocious musically and lyrically from Strangeways. I am probably in the minority but I think Still Ill is rubbish from the debut album. I have never liked the title track from Meat is Murder as I do not share Morrissey's patronising tone and lazy lyrics.
Overall though the remastered work by Johnny is fantastic and I fell in love again with the second finest band of the eighties.
