Meat Is Murder

The SmithsSKU: 2564665878



With their 1985 sophomore album Meat Is Murder, the Smiths begin to branch out and diversify, while refining the jangling guitar pop of their debut.

The group crafts more sweeping, mid-tempo numbers, whether it's the melancholy "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" or the failed, self-absorbed protest of the title track. While the production is more detailed than before, the Smiths are at their best when they stick to their strengths - "The Headmaster Ritual" and "I Want the One I Can't Have" are fine elaborations of the formula they laid out on the debut, while "Rusholme Ruffians" is an infectious stab at rockabilly.
