THE SMITHS - THE QUEEN IS DEAD VINYL RE-ISSUE (GATEFOLD LP)
Release Date: 8th January 2021
"Remastered for the 'Complete' box now individually re-issued on cd and 180 gram 12" vinyl. 'The Queen is Dead' is the Smiths' great leap forward, taking the band to new musical and lyrical heights. Opening with the storming track, the album is harder rocking record than anything the band had attempted before. Johnny Marr has created here a wide range of guitar styles that provide a musical bed for Morrissey's best set of lyrics. from which is crafted some of their finest, most affective songs, particularly 'The Boy with the Thorn in his Side' and the epic 'There is a Light that never goes out,' two masterpieces that provide the foundation for a remarkable album."
