WTB: The Smiths

"The Smiths not only made normal special, they made sure it came with a duty to think and examine. You didn’t get to be 'ordinary cool' mindlessly in the world of The Smiths. It took effort. But you felt part of a collective and that felt special. It felt special then and still feels special today."

What album did The Daily Review describe as "anger, depression, repression and piss-taking you can dance to"? Why did Johnny Marr quit? Why was Morrissey's California Son so controversial? Find out the answers to these questions and more as I go through The Smiths' back catalogue album by album, plus Morrissey's and Johnny Marr's.
