The Smiths released this album on the 16th June 1986 , useless information ...............prolly , but fuck me it's a class album and I can't believe it's 20 years old .

Thanks for the reminder. I saw them twice and both gigs ended in a riot - at County Hall , London skinheads invaded the stage . In Newport , Moz was dragged into the crowd , grazed his elbow and stormed off the stage.

Will give it a spin tonight .

Their best album too. (IMHO).
Possibly my fave too , a close call with Meat is murder...............and Hatful of hollow.............and Strangeways.............and Rank...........and

Fuck it The Smiths were/are brilliant. NME this week has a big write up on The Queen is dead , plus a comp to win The Smiths and Morrisey back catalogue.

and if a double decker bus , crashes into us. To die by your side , is such a heavenly way to die. Thom Yorke wishes he had wrote this lyric.

An upturned bicycle on a hillside desolate.......forking amazing tunes.

Strangeways here we come is my favourite album and This charming man my favourite single. In fact, I find it hard to think of a better 2 minutes 41 seconds of music.

Oh and Sheila take a bow offa that there Louder than bombs is another corker.

The queen is dead is ok. But far from their best work IMO. Rank is probably the most "Smiths" album. You can feel the crowd and Morrsiy/Marr all cumming at the same time.

I bought Morrisey's latest solo offering and was a bit disappointed. SHould have bought You Are the Quarry, instead. The latest on is bit bland, nothing about the bomb bringing us together.

This is possibly my favourite album. Definately one for the thread on albums without a duff track on them. I think I enjoy every track on here.
