Smiths - The Smiths (UK Edition)

Availability: IN STOCK

Arriving in an era dominated by synth pop and gloomy post-punk, The Smiths' eponymous self-titled debut album was the bracing beginning of a new era. Very few of the songs followed conventional verse-chorus structure, yet they were quite melodic within their own right. Marr's inventive songwriting was made all the more original and innovative by Morrissey's crooning and lyrics.

While the production of The Smiths is a little pristine, the songs are vital and alive, developing a new, unique voice within pop music. Though the Smiths continued to improve over the course of their career, their debut remains startling and exciting.

The record features the singles 'What Difference Does It Make?" and "Hand In Glove".

Heavyweight vinyl produced by Rough Trade Records. UK Import.
