If you like the melancholy wall of guitar sound, you might also check out another album that came out two years later, "Cake," by the Trash Can Sinatras.
Morrissey took a big step by releasing this record, just a few months after the demise of The Smiths... obviously, the style is pretty much there and it evolved through the years with a lot of hits and a lot o misses, too.
The two pièces-de-resistance of this album are the very well known "Suedehead" and "Everyday is like Sunday", both perfectly ochestrated and composed brilliantly to an effect of pain in the right place... also there is the share of political controversy and even a couple of lame songs ("Margaret..." and "Dial a Cliché")... but the real centerpieces taht show the juxtaposition of Moz's vision, of the most tender and the most convulsedly gothic is present in "Alsatian Cousin" (a brutal and at the same time tender gay love story) and "Break up the family" , quite possibly the only hopeful song he has ever written.
In fact... a good, solid record you will spin, and spin and spin...
