Personally, I'd stick with trying The Smiths before moving on, as it doesn't seem likely you'll like his solo stuff if you don't like them. But if you do want to take a looksie:

Your Arsenal
Vauxhall and I
You Are the Quarry

Add Viva Hate on there too

And for people listening to the Smiths studio albums don't forget Hatful of Hollow (with much better versions of songs from their debut) and Louder than bombs, compilation albums that are essential


As for albums I need to listen to more...there's an awful lot

Around Christmas I bought 6 albums by bands I never heard of and only one stood out, maybe I should give the others another listen...

I'll admit I haven't listened to Volta as much as some of Bjork's other albums, but I have enough to know I like it. I highly recommend Declare Independence.

And I am still championing Strange Little Girls. Nowadays I skip about half of it, but Real Men, Rattlesnakes, Time, and several others still get regular play.

A big hell yes to The Holy Bible by the Manics. Such an incredible album. I've listened to it tons, but that's still not enough.

As for me...
I have barely scratched the surface of the latest Death Cab, and I don't even own the new Coldplay record.

I've always preferred the debut versions, but that's because I'm on crack.

I did like a few songs off the first album: Reel Around the Fountain, This Charming Man, Pretty Girls Make Graves. But the rest I found utterly unmemorable. Plus I can't say I enjoy Morrissey's vocals on their first two albums. I love his singing on Queen Is Dead and his solo stuff, but early on it just sounds like he's beating the same damn note over and over and over again. And his falsetto is just godawful,

Disintegration, Wish, and Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me are all The Cure at their prime.
