Well, this album is certainly great. Although Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others is a somewhat disappointing finale...

Being such a great album, it isn't my favourite of The Smiths. I prefer the first one and also Vauxhall And I, this one a Morrissey solo album.

I'll say this categorically, without nuances: Morrissey is the best lyricist EVER. And, looking at the current state of the pop music world, he will remain so.

I love their debut and Vauxhall and I as well. The Queen Is Dead seems to get the lions share of the praise but I think Strangeways is every bit as good. An awesome band, brilliant songwriting by Morrissey and Marr.

I understand why he has obsessive fans because the way he sings is just like nobody else. I Know Its Over slays me, I used to have to skip it, it was just too much.

A classic album, probably their best. I love Hatful of Hallow more, but technically that's really a compilation of thier radio sessions. I used to play the LP for hours and stare at the LP. Any Rourke in his tight jeans was a bit of a distraction for me lol

Had a old co-worker hip me to them years ago and I was forever grateful cool Loved the songwriting.

It was a fair exchange; he gave me The Smiths while I introduced him to Terence Trent D'Arby. We both parted ways with mutual musical respect wink

Of course, Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway covered "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out" with Johnny Marr in the Neil Finn-led supergroup 7 Worlds Collide.
