The Smiths by The Smiths
Released: Feb 1984
Label: WM Uk
The Smiths' debut introduced the brilliant Morrissey/Marr songwriting partnership and a sound that effortlessly married warm 1960s folk-rock, deft pop hooks and echoes of cement-gray post-punk with literate and often witty lyrics. Smartly produced by John Porter (organ fills included), the classics include "Hand in Glove," "What Difference Does It Make?," "This Charming Man" and "Suffer Little Children," which deals with the Moors serial murders of the band's Manchester youth. This is both a remarkably influential and underrated album.
