If you hit me it's murder
The Smiths (although I haven't actually got it yet as I haven't been able to find it anywhere)- 'Reel Around The Fountain'

Meat Is Murder- 'I Want The One I Can't Have' or 'Nowhere Fast'

The Queen Is Dead (see The Smiths)- Too difficult :tears: But 'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side' and 'There Is A Light...' will always have a special place in my heart. :o

Strangeways Here We Come- 'Paint A Vulgar Picture'

Louder Than Bombs- 'These Things Take Time', or 'You Just Haven't Earned it Yet, Baby'

Unfortunately I do not yet own HOH, for the same reason as I don't own TS and TQID. My my, how sacreligious. I will get round to it, though. :embarrassed:

Stood at the urinal
But why on earth leave out two of their best albums, which were also recorded in studios: Hatful and Louder. Was Hatful any less of a studio album than The Smiths?

Only because they were never intended as albums, they are both compilations of singles and live radio sessions.
Hatful is a great compilation of live radio sessions.
Great as it is, it is not a studio album.
