The Smith's 4th (and last) studio album is another high-quality affair, but sadly Johnny Marr wished to pursue fresh projects and the band ultimately split. Luckily the fans had one more superb collection of songs to enjoy; highlights include 'I Started Something I Couldn't Finish', 'Stop Me If You think You've Heard This One Before', 'Paint A Vulgar Picture', Girlfriend In A Coma', and a classic slab of rockabilly in the shape of 'Death At One's Elbow'. Verdict: A great valedictory effort which is well worth investing in.

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

I still remember the day I first heard the Smiths. It was 1987, I was a 12 year old kid and I heard Girlfriend in a Coma on a local radio station. As soon as I heard the song I fell in love with the Smiths and my interest in music and pop culture began. Girlfriend in a Coma was one of The Smiths' more insubstanstial offerings but it is a pop classic nevertheless. Now, as a world weary 28 year old, the only thing I have in common with the 12 year old kid I used to be is my passionate love of the Smiths and of this album.
For me this is my favourite Smiths album. I know that The Queen is Dead is the rock critics' favourite but my heart belongs to Strangeways. Morrissey's voice is at its best here and ranges from grunts, yelps and moans to sweet crooning. His lyrics are playful, sick, witty and heartbreakingly moving. Standout tracks are the sinister Death of a Disco Dancer, the aforementioned Girlfriend in a Coma (Morrissey's answer to "Leader of the Pack"), Paint a Vulgar Picture and the sublime I Won't Share You. Morrissey's lyrical and vocal genius is equalled by Marr, Joyce and Rourke's music. I still listen to the album regularly and in 15 years of record buying I have yet to find anything to better it and few to equal it.
If you have any interest in pop or guitar music you simply owe it to yourself to buy this album, it is a true, shimmering, wonderful work of art and your life will be immeasureably enriched by experiencing it!

The final Smiths studio LP, and it's pretty glorious. The preceding The Queen Is Dead gets all the attention, but 'Strangeways, Here We Come' is anything but a letdown. It finds all members of the band stretching out a little and flexing their talents; there are some interesting guitar motifs from Johnny Marr that aren't particularly traceable to the prior Smiths "sound," and similarly Morrissey's voice has gained in depth and richness through age and experience.

It's thoroughly consistent and cohesive. At just 36 minutes, it never outstays its welcome but the songs are long and expansive enough to make their mark. The opening "A Rush and a Push and the Land is Ours" is like a weird sort of melancholy ska, full of reverbed piano, while "I Started Something I Couldn't Finish" ratchets up the pop quotient with a slightly harder-edged flair.

"Death of a Disco Dancer" is the kind of dreamy, pseudo-psychedelic Nico-meets-Siouxsie and the Banshees (with a side order of Beatles' White Album - The Beatles thrown in) epic that foreshadows some of Morrissey's solo work, and does it marvellously well, with a particularly floating, airy vocal from the man himself. "Girlfriend in a Coma" is one of the most perfect two minutes in the entire Smiths catalogue, featuring all the elements that make a classic alternative pop single - a heart-stoppingly gorgeous melody married to an inventive, imaginative arrangement shining the spotlight on Marr's deft guitar, with one of Morrissey's most accessible, smooth vocals and witty, cuttingly humorous lyrics.
