The Smiths with Morrissey in the front

Comments about The Smiths/Morrissey:

The legacy of The Smiths and Morrissey belongs to the '80's but it's interesting to see how many bands have actually borrowed and learned from The smiths. In a way, Britpop might never have evolved the way it did had it not been for the three years where the band released records. This makes The Smiths one of the most important bands of the '80's, even though they didn't survive very long. The forces within the band were simply too strong to keep in a single unit. Explosion was inevitable.....     Le Mec

"The Smiths were the definitive British indie-rock band of the '80s, marking the end of synth-driven New Wave and the beginning of the guitar-rock that dominated English rock into the '90s."   Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All-Music Guide
