Digitally Remastered compilation CD. Forming in 1982 in Manchester, England, The Smiths were to become one of the most influential British bands of the 80s. Lyricist Steven Morrissey met guitarist Johnny Marr through mutual friends, and the two hired Marr's friend Andy Rourke on bass and Mike Joyce on drums. The Smith's music marked the beginning of the British indie-rock scene. Their music was pure guitar-based pop/rock, recalling hooks and textures from the 60s. While it was rooted in British pop, it was steeped in the vigour and independence of punk. The musicianship of Rourke and Joyce combined with Marr's clever melodic guitar hooks coalescing with Morrissey's yearning voice and cultured lyrics captivated thousands. Morrisey's, Wilde inspired, lyrics are witty, charming and intelligent. Marr's guitar has a sweepingly majestic feel with some fantastic mellow chord progressions. Probably the best song on this album, though, is the acoustic 'Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want'. Although this song only clocks in at 1:51, Marr's soft guitar compliments Morrisey's anxist ridden vocal's. A grower for those not around in the 80s, and a great introduction to a great band.
