I haven't heard any of the songs you're discussing, but he's being quite "nice" on San Tropez.

I think all of The Police albums are quite cohesive, some of the better rock albums of their era. I feel incredibly lucky to have seen their reunion tour. Also I don't understand why Fields was mentioned in the context of the Police though as that's a Sting song.

I've given up on being cool a long time ago.

I think Bigmouth Strikes Again might be my favourite song on The Queen is Dead.

I think you're wrong.

I mean, you're right about it being your favorite, unless you're in denial for whatever reason, but seriously:

1. Cemetry Gates
2. The Queen Is Dead
3. I Know It's Over
4. There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
5. The Born With The Thorn In His Side
6. Bigmouth Strikes Again
7. Never Had No One Ever
8. Frankly, Mr Shankly
9. Vicar In A Tutu
10. Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others

1. There Is a Light
2. I Know It's Over
3. The Boy with the Thorn
4. Cemetry Gates
5. Bigmouth

After that, it gets tough. But it's a fantastic album. "I Know It's Over" is absolutely devastating, a beautiful, heart-wrenching song.

I think that one's attitude toward There Is a Light will depend a lot on how one feels about Moz as a lyricist, as the song encapsulates him almost perfectly. The sardonic, morose humor mixed with the poignant self-awareness is really his hallmark. Personally, I love it.

The other albums have their moments (esp the debut)but this album really is on another, more exhilarating level. It remains my favourite of all time, and I had great trouble ranking the songs, so didn't.

Meat Is Murder is on par with The Queen Is Dead, if you ask me. As is Hatful of Hollow, if we count that as a proper album. The Smiths are one of those bands that have several fabulous non-album tracks, This Night Has Opened My Eyes, Unlovable, and Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now among them.

Weird, I was going to make my list but then I saw that you did it for me!

All of their records have been my favourite at some point. They were a perfect band, four classic albums, and Hatful of Hollow and Louder Than Bombs...and they'll never ruin it by getting back together.

Unpopular opinion: I don't like any post Dark Side Pink Floyd. Most of the albums up to and including dark Side are great, though.

However, I enjoy Piper and Syd solo more than post Syd Pink Floyd, though both are great and Echoes is the third best best Floyd song (after Interstellar Overdrive and Astronomie Domine).

A number of krautrock (awful term...) bands kick their asses is the psych wars, too.

Well said. What an awesome sing-a-long chorus.

"Ask" is wonderful as well.
