If you're considering buying this, don't. Just download the Cursive cover and don't waste your time on the rest.
Yes, I knew it would've been all of the no-talent bands that are out today, but come on! I really didn't think it would've been THIS bad!! It is the worst record I have ever owned. This ruined the legacy of the Smiths, one of the best bands of all time.
If you want to hear REAL talented music, look no further than The Smiths or Morrissey.
Don't even waste your money, let alone TIME, on this crap.
Don't buy it!
I cannot stress this enough!
The singer/band (The Beautiful Mistake) for the Cemetry Gates cover didn't even bother to LEARN THE WORDS to Cemetry Gates! (and it's not like he made up his own -- he didn't, he just mumbled. How disrespectful to Morrissey, the genius who created the song in the first place. It's disgusting of Beautiful Mistake to sing that song on a commercial recording without even knowing the words...
What a waste of one of the most beautiful songs Morrissey has ever written! I was so looking forward to hearing this cover, I really was, and it was horrible and disappointing.
Do yourself a favor: buy all the Morrissey and Smiths albums if you don't already have them, and don't waste your time, money, or energy buying this third-rate covers album.
Surely the people who produced this album could have found some better bands/singers for this venture. What a unneccessary waste, especially on a project that could have been so good!!!

I'm not sure what these other people are listening to but this album is brilliant. In my opinion, it completely captures a piece of the smiths. Read morePublished on August 12, 2010 by erik
I bought this CD by accident. At the initial listen, I thought it was terrible, but if you listen to all of it, it seems that it's so bad that it is almost quite good. Read morePublished on December 4, 2009 by Larry G. Wachsmuth

I purchased this CD too quickly; I thought it was a best of the Smiths compilation. So it arrives and I see that is a modern compilation from other bands. Read morePublished on December 9, 2008 by Timothy D. Lyons
