The Smiths – The Smiths (2012 Vinyl Reissue)
The Smiths is the eponymous debut studio album by the Smiths, originally released on 20 February 1984 by Rough Trade Records.
Arriving in an era dominated by synth pop and gloomy post-punk, the Smiths’ debut album was the beginning of a new era. Johnny Marr’s inventive song writing and ringing guitars were catchy and melodic and were made all the more original by Morrissey’s vocal style and lyrics. The songs here are vital and alive, making sure that The Smiths remains startling and exciting to this day.
The Smiths was well received by critics and listeners, and reached No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart, staying on the chart for 33 weeks. It established the Smiths as a prominent band in the 1980s music scene in the United Kingdom. The album also became an international success.
