Smiths: Love 'em and New Order too.

I have two recommendations for you guys:

1) Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (their self-titled debut is phenomenal)

2) Albert Hammond, Jr. (guitarist for the Strokes) has a solo album out, quite good

I have a thing for self-deprecating music and the smiths have always done it for me.. what, with lyrics like "I had a really bad dream/It lasted 20 years, 7 months, and 27 days" in which moz is obviously referring to his life.

the first smiths album I ever got was the queen is dead and it is my favorite up to date.

i've never really ventured into any of moz' solo work

I think I might be the only person in the entire world who doesn't like the Smiths. I like their music a lot, but I just really hate Morrissey's voice a lot. It kinda makes me want to stab my ears with an icepick. Now you may viciously insult me because of that.

I like his voice. He's got an unusual and unique approach when singing repeated lines. He sings each repeat, different from the last.
It's one of the things that sets him apart from the usual.

'That's why I do this music business thing, it's communication with people without having the extreme inconvenience of actually phoning anybody up.'

I think we have to understand that Morrissey's voice is definitel an acquired taste, and I can definitely see why some people cannot get on with them. I myself hated them in my youth (i was never into melancholy at that time) but eventually I was won round by Jonny Marrs songwriting, and then an appreciation of Morrisseys brilliant lyrics; which as pointed out in a previous post are quintessentially English.

However I am not a massive fan and only have one compilation, much prefered NEW ORDER.
