    It's ultimately just not very good, either musically or lyrically. A rare dud.

    Minor Smiths mention in "Depeche Mode 101" review

    101 is a cracking documentary and live show, a real peak as a massive Mode fan. Nothing sweeter than my favourite fellow Brits cracking America on their own terms.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Barbarism Begins at Home"

    Never, ever liked this song. Sure, it's a good baseline, but it's the How Soon is Now disease - a decent idea stretched for over six minutes for the sake of it. renders the last two tracks on MiM as unlistenable. Sad!

    Absolutely gorgeous and haunting piece of music. Want to learn the piano just so I can play this.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Ask"

    When I first got into the smiths as a dickhead 15 year old, I loved this song. Catchy as anything. Can't say it is one I seek out now, though, just too lightweight. I love the live version on Rank, still. Also, Morrissey's solo version is very good and captures that same energy. Fair play to...

    The Smiths A-Z: "Accept Yourself"

    Is there a 'real reason' why Morrissey and Johnny Marr never worked together again?

    this is an odd question - it's always transcribed it was a meeting in a 'South Manchester' pub, has it been confirmed which pub?

    Does anyone think List of the Lost would make a great film?

    Well, this thread took a turn.

    Morrissey’s image post the Smiths breakup

    He's stopped wearing that horrific white tracksuit thing from 2014 and, frankly, we should all be grateful for that.
