Pretty funny writeup from Consequence of Sound:

The Smiths’ The Queen Is Dead Turns 30
A track-by-track breakdown of the celebrated album's most "Morrissey" lyrics
By Bryn Rich

Excerpt:

Thirty-seven minutes.

That’s how long it takes The Queen Is Dead to cover sleazy record company executives, unrequited love, regicide, suicide, organized religion, women’s bodies, dead poets, and pretty much every other theme you could possibly imagine. In one swoop, The Smiths perfectly summed up the personal and political challenges of life in the UK during Margaret Thatcher’s 1980s.
