Don't get me wrong, the Queen is Dead is a mater piece, but I personally think that Strangeways Here we Come is a much underated album and is definately on a parr if not surpassing the greatness of its predecessor. Take for example my two favourite songs on the album, and two of my favourite songs in the whole Smiths catalogue for that matter, Girlfriend in a Coma and Paint a Vulgar Picture. For me these songs are just absolutely beautiful and address issues in a way that only Morrissey could. They are both complex songs in their simplicity and overly romantic. From begining to end, this is a great album and I really can't understand why it has never got the recognition it deserves. For example, in most best album polls you are likely to see an appearance by Hatful of Hollow rather than Strangeways.
