One of the best album openers of all time. Fact.
the song at the very start?
or the words?
"take me back..."
"Take me back to dear old Blighty, take me out to eat in London town / Take me anywhere, drop me anywhere, Liverpool, Leeds or Birmingham but I don't care!"
i also think that derek jarman short for them, 8mm hell "the queen is dead" still looks great. its still one of best promos ever.
No sir, that award goes to Hatful of Hollow.
as strictly speaking it isn't an 'album'. best smiths album: meat is murder by a mile.
It's got There Is A Light on it.
That alone gives it that honour.
Strangeways runs it close though.
the sampled rhyme followed by an awesome drum intro
by miles. And if you paid full price for it on a cd you can goshdarn well consider it a proper album.
