the smiths masterpiece!,
This review is from: The Queen Is Dead (Audio CD)
after reading lots of reviews i was apprehensive to buy this album and thought 'can it really be that good?', the answer is no.....its better. Morrissey seems to lyrically be at his best with lines such as "so i broke into the palace, with a sponge and a rusty spanner......she said i know you and you cannot sing, i said thats nothing you should hear me play piano!"!from the fantastic 'frankly, mr shankly' to the cracking ballad 'i know its over', the fantastic album ender 'some girls are bigger than others' and of course arguably the greatest ever smiths song 'there is a light and it never goes out', this album is superb.
morrissey's words and marr's music made the smiths go down as one of the best english bands in recent times. they have stood the test of time and are very much still relevant today. the 'queen is dead' is probably the pinacle of their work and a must for any cd collection.
