Here are my reasons for voting yes......

Morrissey is a legend in our house, even the budgie loves the guy.

Johnny Marr, although a blue, has some of the best influences known to man, and it shows in his guitar playing.

Johnny Marr is so gifted, that even he doesnt know how to replicate his own songs, they are that brilliant.

The Queen is Dead is thee best album to come out of Manchester, and thats saying something, not only that, the best album to come out of the north and out of the 80s. Every song on it is a masterpiece.

Morrissey a few years back got voted the Greatest Mancunian Ever in the local paper's first poll on the subject. Beating such people as Tony Wilson, Alan Turin, Eric Cantona and Frank Sidebottom

The lyrics that that man can come up with are just sheer brilliance, funny yet tragic, beautiful yet grim.

Have you heard the stuff that other people were doing in 84-86.....shocking. The Smiths were at it, writing quality as opposed to the tosh the mainstream were drowning us all in.

Hand in Glove, How Soon is Now, Girlfriend in a Coma, I Started Something.....and on and on and on

Bloody Marvellous......

Thats about it really

HELL YES


A band that is extremely important to me. My first indie band, Jonny Marr is the reason is started playing guitar, Moz has some of the best lyrics and one of the best voices ever, undoubtedly one of the most important bands of the 80's, and imo the best band of the 80's.

If you havent really heard their stuff check out the compilation Hatful of Hollow.

Well I'm not a fan, but I think they deserve it. Maybe it'll help Morrissey to quit being so sullen.

I only got a singles collection, since I heard they're more of a singles band than an album band. Any tips about what album I should get first?

Anyway, a yes from me.

Id start with the first one, which is the self titled. Its my favourite one, but theres only 4 studio albums so its worth workng through them.

I'd rank The Queen Is Dead 4th of 4. Or possibly 3rd of 4. It's still a fine album but I think the self titled and Strangeways are superior.
