A great compilation from The Smiths. It saw the band at the zenith of their powers, and gathers the likes of the high charting and brilliant non-album singles 'Panic' and 'Shoplifters Of The World Unite'. Among other wonderous cuts is the bizzare single 'Shakespeares Sister' as well as the aching acoustic strum of 'Half A Person', the piano led suicide-lullaby 'Asleep' and the thunderous punk malestrom of 'London'. The only bad additions come in tne form of the throwaway uber-pop single 'Ask' and the dire Cilla Black 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.
Confused, awkward, feeling useless? Listen to this relate to "I wear black on the outside cos black is how I feel on the inside" realise your not alone, have life changing moment and understand that it doesn't get much better than the Smiths.
