Louder Than Bombs: The Best of The Smiths is the classic 1987 double vinyl hits package for The Smiths. It includes many of the band's most popular singles and hard to find B-sides. While some fans may go with Hatful of Hallow as The Smiths 'greatest hits' album, but this one is far more expansive.
Contrived by Johnny Marr, The Smiths evolved when Marr unearthed Morrissey and insisted upon a collaboration. The idea was to produce songs which were always instantaneous and listenable whilst also provoking deep thought; enmeshing Morrissey's words with Marr's music in a sound which, above all, would stand apart without being inaccessible or esoteric. The guitar-based songs would blend melody without havoc, as the words - born out of absolute physical necessity - would tug at the straps of cultural straight-jackets.
