8/10 Alice Customer review, 30th April 2016
I found this record through the book 'The Perks of being a Wallflower' by Stephen Chbosky. I then found out that my family owned several records by the band, so I had a dig around. This was my favourite. The album includes tracks 'Shoplifters of the world Unite', 'Half a Person' and of course the beautiful and moving 'Asleep'.
Chbosky writes about a photograph of one of the characters, "It would be impossible to describe how beautiful it is, but I'll try. If you listen to the song "Asleep", and you think about those pretty weather days that make you remember things, and you think about the prettiest eyes you've known, and you cry, and the person holds you back, then I think you will see the photograph."
10/10 Jack Customer review, 1st February 2015
This is the Smiths album I would give a friend if they wanted to know what the Smiths sounded like. There are 24 amazing tracks on here full of the MOZ wit and the MARR guitar sound. This album reads almost like a greatest hits series. I can't think of one song on here that lacks that Wilde wit and bittersweet feeling that Moz delivers in his songs. I must admit my favourite tracks here are "Half a Person", "This Night Has Opened My Eyes", "Heaven Knows Im Miserable Now", and the always fun "ASK". This album makes me want to pull my black turtle neck out of the closet and go spend the afternoon in the park sketching or having a pic-nic with a close friend who can recite Shelly and Poe. If you know the Smiths, you know what I mean. If you don't know the Smiths, here's your chance!
