The Smiths' 1986 Masterpiece Remastered on 180g Vinyl!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 113/500!
The Queen Is Dead is an album by The Smiths, released in 1986. The Queen Is Dead includes the following tracks: "The Queen Is Dead," "I Know Its Over," "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others" and more. The album is remastered on high-quality vinyl.
Morrissey's maudlin moanings have never been more acidic or self-aware than on the Smiths' third studio album: 'A dreaded sunny day, so let's go where we're happy/And I meet you at the cemetery gates,' indeed. Johnny Marr is the sugar to Morrissey's rock salt, and his layered webs of guitar riffs and arpeggios, often in unconventional tunings, build a shifting but stable platform for Morrissey to croon about the drudgery of employment or being cruelly, cruelly shunned by the world. It's mope rock with its eye on grandeur: With 'Bigmouth Strikes Again,' Marr said, 'I was trying to write my 'Jumpin' Jack Flash.'
