Guest Ohdistortedsmile1789 Posted August 11, 2006 Share Posted August 11, 2006 A difficult album, but longer than their others and ultimately rewarding. Sometimes I like it alot, the first few tracks for example are very interesting. It's very thick, in it's textures and pacing. You wouldn't expect a Smiths album to have only three tracks under four minutes. I think the last two cuts, the title track in particular, robbed it of what it could have been. We know this issue is important to Morrissey, but it's hard to take it as seriously as he does. As for "Barbarism Begins At Home", it just seems awkward, an unusual groove when compared to the rest of the album. But there are more than enough gems to satisfy, "Well I Wonder" being one of their loveliest ballads, besides the obvious choices. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
