Meat Is Murder may have been a holding pattern, but The Queen Is Dead is the Smiths' great leap forward, taking the band to new musical and lyrical heights. Opening with the storming title track, The Queen Is Dead is a harder-rocking record than anything the Smiths had attempted before, but that's only on a relative scale -- although the backbeat is more pronounced, the group certainly doesn't rock in a conventional sense. Instead, Johnny Marr has created a dense web of guitars, alternating from the minor-key rush of "Bigmouth Strikes Again" and the faux rockabilly of "Vicar in a Tutu" to the bouncy acoustic pop of "Cemetry Gates" and "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side," as well as the lovely melancholy of "I Know It's Over" and "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out." And the rich musical bed provides Morrissey with the support for his finest set of lyrics. Shattering the myth that he is a self-pitying sap, Morrissey delivers a devastating set of clever, witty satires of British social mores, intellectualism, class, and even himself. He also crafts some of his finest, most affecting songs, particularly in the wistful "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side" and the epic "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," two masterpieces that provide the foundation for a remarkable album.

Con sus cuatro discos: "The Smiths" "Meat is Murder" "The Queen is Dead" y "Strangeways, here we come", se puede vivir tranquilo mucho tiempo.

No presto más un Cd. Y menos original. Una amiga se llevó los dos compilados de los Smiths y me devolvió uno equivocado y una caja vacía.
Mi vida nunca será la misma desde entonces...

Toxic Girl dijo...

Aunque, bueno... Paradójicamente ella fue la que un día me pasó un cd de los Smiths y me dijo, "Escuchalo a ver si te gusta".
Debería agradecerle...

¡Por Dios! ¡Los Smiths! Todo bien con Morrissey, este es su disco más inspirado cantando y como letrista, lo mejor que hizo jamás, pero, ¡Johnny Marr!, nunca estuvo tan inspirado y sensible, el mejor guitarrista de los '80. "Bigmouth strikes again" a los anales de la historia...
