This is a band who deserve alot more respect than they get. This is possibly one of the greatest albums of the 80's by miles. If you like The Smiths you have to like this album. It is easily up there with The Queen is Dead and The Smiths. Every track is a masterpiece. The opening Boy meets a Girl so what is tragic tune with better lyrics than most Manic Street Preachers tunes. When you listen to McCarthy you realise were the Manics stole their idea's from. Other stand out tracks include Address to the Better Off and Throw Him Out He's Breaking My Heart. You could do alot worse than to buy this album. This is a real tombstone of what the real 80's were like.
