Hi-Res Distinctions The Qobuz Ideal Discography
For their third album, The Smiths are at the top of their game: a tortured crooning voice, crystalline arpeggios seeping from a limpid guitar, romantic and cynical lyrics, everything’s gathered for some 100% British pop, like The Kinks, The Who and The Jam knew how to create in their day… The Queen Is Dead, Bigmouth Strikes Again, The Boy With The Thorn In His Side, There Is A Light That Never Goes Out and Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others are all introspective gems that the charismatic Morrissey transforms into pure poetry. Teenage worries, social paintings, subtle caricatures, Mozzer dips his pen here in the ink of perfection. © MD/QobuzIan Youngs of BBC News has described them as « the band that inspired deeper devotion than any British group since the Beatles ». In 2002, The Smiths was named the most important musical artist of all time in a survey conducted by the NME. In 2013, The Queen Is Dead was voted best album of all time by the same weekly magazine. In 1996, The Queen Is Dead was voted best album of the decade 1986-1996 by The inRocKuptibles.
