Arguably the Smiths' masterpiece, The Queen Is Dead features the elegance, craftsmanship and humor which has led the band to musical eminence. Johnny Marr's dense web of guitars create a rich musical foundation here for some of Morrissey's most affecting set of lyrics. The wistful "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side" and the epic "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out" are two of the crowning achievements in the band's oeuvre and they provide the ideal cornerstone for what is a remarkable overall album.
Remastered with direct supervision by Johnny Marr, this essential LP has never sounded better. Complete with original packaging and sleeve.
