Like you even need to ask me...

Crowy is right in that Strangeways is the greatest depature as far as The Smiths have gone. Some songs were focused more in a glam style, they never did any songs like Death At One's Elbow, they too layering to a new level on Death Of A Disco Dancer, the first track doesn't even have guitars. One of the singles was Last Night for christ sakes...
And Meat Is Murder is their most accessible album, to me at least. I loved it from the off.

Quote:
The Smiths to me were very one dimensional. "I'm so shy and socially akward boo hoo". The Smiths is something you listen to when you're depressed, now I actually do like The Smiths, but I have to be in that sh*tty mood to really enjoy them, same with Joy Division.
People who think The Smiths are depressing are very far off. Enjoy it anyway you want, but their music is uplifting if anything. I Know Its Over is seen as the main culprit, but any fool who actually listened to it will come out of it uplifted, its one of their most passionate and rousing songs, easily. As for most for their others, they're bouncy pop songs. Boo hoo my arse, they're something to celebrate.

Yeh, because songs like Panic are really depressing , and Joy Division?

Morrisseys vocals never sound uplifting to me. They have songs that on their own sound upbeat, but Morrissey always adds a bit of disdain to everything he does.

Its hard to warm up to a guy with such relentless hatred for everything.

Hehe, thats his charm for me, its what sets him apart, no-one else could pull it off the way he does.
Moz is one of the truly most peculiar people in music, and its brilliant.

Still plaguing these forums with your **** for brains opinions I see boo boo. Lmao, in fact Meat is Murder is their worst studio effort they ever created. If anyones right in this argument, it's Crowquill. Like me, he saw the positives in both bands. And Sweet Nothing, why the hell would how often an artist is picked in polls have anything to do with being your favorite artist? The Beatles kick ass, and how overrated they are change nothing about how they sound. Get over it.

I don't see how that post contributed anything other than arrogance and trolling. You're already walking a thin line and if you want it to widen then I suggest you learn from your original ban.

I was responding to the reasoning for other peoples choices on a music debate forum (hold the debate, I guess). Boo boo took a shot at my comment first, I was responding to him.
