Classic Album Sundays presents The Smiths 'The Queen Is Dead' at Good Room
Rising from the ashes of punk The Smiths proved you could protest with musicianship as well as just raw passion. Their third album The Queen Is Dead is widely cited by critics as The Smiths’ best studio album.
Released in a Thatcherite Britain in the midst of privatization and the miners strike The Queen is Dead provided a raucous voice of opposition with the monarchy, the government and even record label boss Geoff Travis all feeling Morrissey’s wrath via the flawless pop brilliance of The Smiths.
The Queen is Dead was The Smiths at the peak of their power and provided a huge catalyst for the Britpop movement of the 90’s. Noel Gallagher would later comment that although he loved The Beatles, The Smiths were his band!
