  The Smiths - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Morrissey's lyrics, while superficially depressing, were often full of mordant humour (The Smiths were "one of the few bands capable of making me laugh out loud," said Peel) and his lovelorn tales of alienation found an audience amongst a disaffected section of youth culture, bored by the ubiquitous synthesizer bands that then dominated the charts.
By February 1984, The Smiths fanbase was sufficiently large to launch the band's long-awaited self-titled debut album to number two in the UK chart.

 Jack Feeny reviews: The Smiths
The Smiths made four official albums, and the fact you reviewed what is essentially a b-sides and rarities collection as an actual album and gave it 9 is perhaps a good indication of the greatness and prolific nature of the best band of the 80's.
It is also proof that the Smiths were one of the very few bands in the whole world that called it quits when they were still absolutely on top of their game.
Of course, the Smiths were hardly renowned for dramatic reinterpretations of songs, and Marr's rejection of guitar solos means he does not have much room for showing off, so these versions are all pretty much identical to the official versions.
