Not for the hardcore fan,
This review is from: Singles (Audio CD)
Its interesting to hear some peoples views on the Smiths because there are such mixed feelings. The songs are not all miserable and depressing, meloncholy maybe, but in a beautiful and heart-tugging way. Far too many people do not get the irony and humour which is hidden within the miserablism, and that is one of the things that makes the Smiths so unique.
This album is worth getting if maybe you just have a fleeting curiosity towards the Smiths but if you really want to get into them, check out there proper studio albums, you'll find much more substance in those and you will understand the genius of The Smiths in all their flower-bearing, hearing-aid wearing glory!!!
