4.0 excellentTokyochuchu | December 17th 09

A great compilation from The Smiths. It saw the band at the zenith of their powers, gathering the likes of the high charting and brilliant non-album singles 'Panic' and 'Shoplifters Of The World Unite'. Among other wondrous cuts is the bizarre rockabilly-punk single 'Shakespeare's Sister', the aching acoustic strum of 'Half A Person', the piano led suicide-lullaby 'Asleep' and the thunderous smoke-belching maelstrom of 'London'. The only bad additions come in the form of some throwaway instrumentals (specifically 'Oscillate Wildly') and the fairly dire Twinkle cover 'Golden Lights' which closes out the record on a bit of a sour note. But overall, this is an excellent compilation which serves as a good starting point for people new to The Smiths.

"Asleep" is probably the best ballad ever made, seriously.
