Sadly, The Smiths couldn't stay together. A distinct highlight of the '80s alternative scene, The Smiths represented the power of teenage feelings and gorgeous pop melodies. The perfect marriage of Johnny Marr’s music and Morrissey’s lyrics came together for one last push with this: their fourth and final studio album. With Stephen Street producing, the British quartet achieved a fuller sound that made Marr’s guitar colorings particularly bright, with strings and horns added in strategic spots. Morrissey matched the production’s additional hues by writing another batch of punchy and pithy musings. The solemn horror of “Girlfriend in a Coma” is eased by an indelible melody. “Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before,” “Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me," and “Unhappy Birthday” work toward Morrissey’s self-parodic self-pity. He’s clearly aware of the impression he’s making and reveling in his cheekiness. This playful demeanor balances the often-desperate anger that lurks underneath (“Paint a Vulgar Picture,” “I Won’t Share You").
