I find Meat Is Murder pretty inconsistent, but when it really clicks into place, you can hear genius at work. Like, the title track is enough to make someone eat raw meat every day for the rest of their lives, whereas The Headmaster Ritual and How Soon Is Now are brilliant.

Still haven't heard Strangeways, Here We Come. I need to get on that.

I hate hate hate Bigmouth Strikes Again.

It's not my least favorite song by them, but because its tune is more catchy than a lot of their work I DON'T enjoy, it gets stuck in my head far easier, and it just destroys me when that happens.

As for "There's a Light", that's one of my favorite songs of all time, so Cobbler, pistols at dawn will be just fine.

I don't care about The Smiths. Saw Morrissey live once and that was disappointing. I feel no need to explore their catalogue any further.

Let me reiterate once again that this is a terrific thread title.

I never said I don't like the song. I ranked it third on the album, and I enjoy all the songs. I just don't think it's the second coming of Christ, like I've said before.

What don't you like about WYWH or Animals? Near-flawless records, the two of them, in my view.

You've certainly caused quite a storm in EYKIW. I have wanted to belt my head against a wall reading many of your arguments with BVS and the like, but you seem to have a pretty knowledgeable grip on other music, so hopefully you stick around in here a bit.

Yes, yes you do. I think that I might have passed out of existence in somber delight had Moz played "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" when I saw him.

I've never much dug/gotten into Morrissey or The Smiths. The couple Smiths songs I have heard were decent (The Queen Is Dead and Cemetry Gates), but didn't make much of an impression on me.

Try this one (IMO, their best song):

YouTube - ‪The Smiths - Ask (HQ)‬‏


and this:

YouTube - ‪The Smiths - How Soon Is Now (Six Minute Version)‬‏

Hell yeah, Laz, "Ask" is probably my favorite Smiths song, too.

I love the Smiths, but I can't stand Morrissey on his own.

On a related note, what the fuck is Johnny Marr doing wasting his time in Modest Mouse?

Why wouldn't he want to play with a band that both has critical acclaim and popularity at his age? Not like he's done anything decent on his own since The Smiths.
