The deluxe edition of THE SOUND OF THE SMITHS appends the standard version with a bonus disc of rarities, deeper album cuts, and live tracks, providing an even more in-depth overview of the beloved 1980s British rock act. Highlights of the second disc include an energetic concert performance of "Handsome Devil," an alternate version of "Pretty Girls Make Graves," and "The Queen Is Dead," a searing song lifted from the esteemed album of the same name.
The Smiths: Morrissey (vocals); Johnny Marr , Stephen Street.
Though the Smiths have been compiled numerous times, 2008's THE SOUND OF THE SMITHS is the first set to comprehensively survey the revered British college-rock band's impressive 1983-87 catalogue. Beginning with the restless "Hand in Glove," and proceeding in chronological order to spotlight other classic tracks such as the epic "How Soon Is Now?" and the achingly melancholic "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me," the lovingly remastered SOUND easily reinforces the Smiths' status as one of the all-time-great U.K. pop/rock bands, adeptly showcasing Morrissey's hyper-literate lyrics and emotive croon, as well as Johnny Marr's awe-inspiring and dynamic guitar work. The anthology, which benefits from the input of both key members, also makes room for lesser-known album selections such as "Still Ill" and "Barbarism Begins at Home," making SOUND much more than a mere singles collection.
Rolling Stone (p.95) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Morrissey articulates both bleak romanticism and omni-deprecating humor, while Marr accompanies him with chiming, multilayered riffs."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "With Marr's transports of melodic delight and the detailed complicities of Morrissey, songs such as 'William, It Was Really Nothing' and 'Sweet And Tender Hooligan' make for pop music of uncanny potency."
Blender (Magazine) (p.67) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he most comprehensive survey yet of the Mancunians' brief, tear-stained blaze through the mid-'80s indie-pop firmament..."
