Remastered for the 'complete' box now individually re-issued on cd and 180 gram 12" vinyl. with producer stephen street, the smiths created a subtly shaded and skilled album, one boasting a fuller production than before. Morrisey and Mare laboured hard over the songs, working to expand the band's sound within their boundaries. in doing so they created the classic tracks 'i started something i couldn't finish,' 'girlfriend in a coma,' 'stop me if you think you've heard this one before,' and 'i won't share you'. this, the highest charting of all their albums, easily offers a summery of the band's considerable strengths.
