A highly enjoyable compilation album of The Smith's classiest material
on 17 November 2016
23 track compilation with 80 minutes of high quality Smiths' material from the mid-1980s showcasing Morrissey's clever, witty lyricism and Johnny Marr's superior guitar work. The gems are almost too many to catalogue but here are a selection of my favourite tracks:- 'This Charming Man', 'What Difference Does It Make?', Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now', 'How Soon Is Now?', 'Nowhere Fast', 'Barbarism Begins At Home', 'That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore', 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out', 'Panic', Shoplifters Of The World Unite', 'Girlfriend In A Coma' and 'I Started Something I Couldn't Finish'. This is a great place to start your discovery of the group's fairly short body of work (4 studio albums and a number of highly interesting compilations) and so 'The Sound Of the Smiths' comes highly recommended from this reviewer.
