'The Queen Is Dead' is probably the finest album The Smiths ever made, featuring some of their best songs - and several personal favourites of mine, including 'Bigmouth Strikes Again', 'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side' and 'Vicar In A Tutu'. If you're a fan of The Smiths, you'll more than likely be familiar with the album itself. The question is, is the 2012 remastered edition worth the upgrade? Whilst all you get here is the original album - no extra tracks at all - it's a significant step up from the previous CD edition, and it's clear that a great deal of care and attention has been taken in ensuring it sounds as good as an album of its stature should. A brilliant album, given the treatment it deserves.
