With the deluxe edition you'll have access to another CD worth of brilliant music. This is a must-have album for anyone new to The Smiths, or anyone who wants all of their best songs in one compliation album.

Conocereis sus brillantes composiciones, sus inteligentes letras y sus impresionantes melodias.
Si no los conoceis, comprarlo. Entre tanta mediania de la música actual, hacer un hueco a un brillante recopilatorio de temas, que abarcan toda la pequeña historia (en tiempo) de The Smiths. Adentraros con sus primeras y más básicas composiciones, aunque no por ello menos sublimes. Dejaros maravillar, acariciar, perturbar por sus increibles letras, sus guitarras brillantes, y la voz inconfundible de Morrissey.
Un disco obligatorio, de seguramente, la banda inglesa más importante de todos los tiempos.… Expand

Mar 27, 2011Depending on how many of the proper albums you have, as Pitchfork has said, depends on how much you will welcome the first disc. I counted 12Depending on how many of the proper albums you have, as Pitchfork has said, depends on how much you will welcome the first disc. I counted 12 songs out of the remainder (around 24 songs on Disc 1) that I did NOT have so that was a plus. And in the second disc, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were another 13 or 14 songs (also about 24 songs) which I did not have, and which were live or b-sides I never heard before after all of these years. There is no need for me to tell you how great the music is -- it's the Smiths! It's a great collection for both newcomers and long-time fans. This was obviously a labor of love for Morrissey and Marr who produced it. And the pics of the band are very generous and great to have. Originally, I didn't buy this item because of the expensive (for me) price, but today I found a used copy for $15.99 so good on me!
Love you Estephan y Johnny! Mucho love for the Smiths!… Expand
