The Smiths Meat Is Murder on 180g LP Long-awaited LP Reissue of 1985 Smiths Studio Album With Remastering Supervised by Johnny Marr
The Smiths, The Queen Is Dead, and Strangeways, Here We Come Also Available on Remastered 180g LP
The Smiths' eclectic 1985 release finds the band branching out into rockabilly, post-punk and flashes of funk, all while refining the guitar pop of their debut. Produced by Morrissey and Johnny Marr, Meat Is Murder is the band's sole studio album to reach #1 on the U.K. charts. "The Headmaster Ritual" and "I Want the One I Can't Have" are fine elaborations on the formula the band introduced on their debut, while "Rusholme Ruffians" is an infectious take on rockabilly. There was no other British group making music quite like this in 1985.
Remastered under the direct supervision of Johnny Marr, this post-punk classic has never sounded better. Complete with original packaging and sleeves.
