The Smiths
Louder Than Bombs

Louder Than Bombs was the American counterpart to The World Won't Listen compilation in that it compiled all the Smiths non album tracks that hadn't been available on single or album in the US. Therefore it is a treasure trove of the lesser known part of their back catalogue with well known hits interspersed with rarely heard B sides. Brilliant throughout despite the singer's subsequent attempts at ruining everything.

The Smiths
Strangeways Here We Come

This 1987 album was the final chapter for one of the most prodigiously brilliant and era-defining bands of the 80s. It tends to steer away from the jangly guitar style that Johnny Marr was best known for, with more varied production than before. Hence, the glam stomp of I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish, the proggy jam Death of a Disco Dancer, and the extended-intro, string-laden Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me. Morrissey was melodically impressive as well as genuinely witty and capable of human empathy in these good old days, and I Won’t Share You ends the album and the band’s career with a sad and touching sentiment. Rourke and Joyce rarely get the plaudits they deserve, but as ever The Smiths sound like a proper four-piece. May they never ruin their legacy by reforming, and we can remember and still enjoy them like this.

Johnny Marr
Call The Comet

Johnny Marr is nothing if not confident. In a recent Uncut interview he described this, his third solo album, as the best thing he's ever worked on. Therefore I'm really looking forward to hearing a record that is better than Meat is Murder. Still, he's pretty much the only Smith it's now ok to like so he's always welcome round here.

The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master) [Deluxe Edition]

Another magical example of when a single LP gets turned into a 5LP box set. The Smiths 4th best album finally gets the big set treatment with demos, b-sides live tracks and a DVD featuring Derek Jarman's short film made to accompany the original release. A must for all fans of this most special of bands. "Slip them into different sleeves! Buy both, and feel deceived".

Morrissey
Viva Hate (Special Edition)

Former icon Morrissey finally gave up on the Smiths when he realised the man who did everything was no longer around. However he found a new best friend in producer Stephen Street who collaborated on some truly stellar tracks on his debut solo album. It's almost impossible to ignore a record which contains such brilliance as Suedehead and Everyday is Like Sunday but...ah screw him eh? There's other music to listen to.

The Smiths
The Queen is Dead

'The Queen Is Dead' is thought by many to be the Smiths greatest achievement. Not for me, nothing with 'Vicar In A Tutu' on it should ever be considered a classic. However it does contain many of their greatest moments, the title track, 'There is a Light....' and 'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others' to name but three. The Smiths at their confident best just before things started to go slightly wrong.

The Smiths

The Smiths must have sounded like nothing else in 1983. The band were a live tour de force but also poetic and lyrical. The Smiths was their murky debut and contains several future classics. Match the Byrds like guitar playing and a particular kind of Manchester melancholy with a vocalist who sounds like a demented seal and there you have it. Total brilliance.

The Smiths
Hatful of Hollow

'Hatful of Hollow' was a wonderful compilation of the Smiths earliest moments with many tracks taken from John Peel sessions. This gives them a rawer feel to their album contemporaries but unlike many session compilations this works pretty brilliantly as an album. It also contains early singles and B sides showcasing some of their very best songs such as "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "William, It Was Really Nothing", "Girl Afraid" and "How Soon Is Now? Utterly, utterly essential.

The Smiths
The World Won't Listen

The World Won't Listen was a collection of singles and B sides from legendary Manchester band the Smiths. It's main selling point was the inclusion of aborted single You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby and initially the album served a similar purpose to the earlier Hatful of Hollow. Confusingly though, Rough Trade subsequently issued Louder Than Bombs - an American compilation which did almost the exact same thing rendering one (or the other) compilations semi redundant save for a few different mixes.

The Smiths
Meat is Murder

Never widely considered to be their best album but this is a superb effort. It contains one of their most unusual and memorable songs in 'The Headmasters Ritual', add in to that the twin rainy day melancholy ballads 'Well I Wonder' and 'That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore', the surprising funk workouts of 'Barbarism Begins At Home' and the disturbing title track and there's half a great album already. They simply redefined what pop could and should be.

Rank

Rank was a posthumous live album by the Smiths which served to tie up their contract with Sire records. It was recorded in 1986 at the National Ballroom in Kilburn and showcases the then five piece band at the peak of their powers. The track list was chosen by Morrissey omitting six of the tracks played at the concert but still leaving a superb live document of the much-missed band.
