It's just the more I listen the more I find things I adore in each track from each album.
Strangeways Here We Come gets an 8/10 for me.. My least favourite Smiths record. 2 10s, 1 9 and 1 8.

Well I have to admit I've only listened to these while on youtube excursions, and whilst I enjoy the extra rawness they add to the whole sound, I'm not sure if I can decide based on them only.

No I meant like give it a proper review seeing as though they only have a small discography.

I'm trying to extend the life of your thread here man.

So you find the review a bit limited?
I'm not sure if I can successfully fit the Troy Tate sessions comparison in there, but I'd try if I had a decent copy of them and listened to it a few times.
Would you suggest doing this in the review post or in another one?

I'm saying The Smiths have a very small discography so if you like you could throw in a few other things to extend the thread.

Ah sorry, This probably felt like speaking to a deaf person to you...
Yes, I considered that, and I think I'm going to do compilations and things of the sort.

A great review for one of my very favourite bands. I'm with you on the miserabilist thing... it's mostly people taking them at face value. My mate thinks the Smiths are downright depressing and asks me whether that's part of their appeal.
