The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead

The Queen Is Dead set the stall for what an album should be and, ever since, few have made a guitar album that can even be mentioned in the same sentence as this iconic effort. The Smiths were on their third record and at the absolute peak of their powers.

The album is The Smiths’ finest work out of the four records they made during their time together and encapsulates everything great about them as an entity. Morrissey’s dark lyricism was juxtaposed alongside Johnny Marr’s sunny guitars that would be the perfect soundtrack to the 1980s. Every single track on the album is a bonafide classic. It simply wasn’t fair on other bands that The Smiths could cram tracks like ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’, ‘Bigmouth Strikes Again’, ‘Cemetry Gates’ and ‘I Know It’s Over’ all on one album, which confirmed their voice of a...

Review from The Film Stage:

Shoplifters of the World Review: Helena Howard and Ellar Coltrane Embark on a Music-Filled Journey of Self-Discovery

by Jared Mobarak, March 24, 2021


Excerpt:

"...The result is imperfect (the acting can be uneven outside of Howard’s innate talent to demand the undivided attention of everyone on-screen and off), but its messaging and execution is a lot more resonant than I expected going in—a less successful sibling to Blinded By the Light. My initial interest in watching mainly stemmed from the soundtrack (I’m a Smiths fan) and Dean’s criminal activities recalling Airheads, so I wasn’t therefore expecting to find a poignant riff on coming-of-age party films from...

‘Shoplifters of the World’ Review: Breaking Up Is Hard to Do​

Four friends process the breakup of their musical idols, The Smiths, in this gentle tale of teenage self-discovery.

It’s the summer of 1987 and four friends in Denver, Colo., have just learned that their favorite band, The Smiths, has broken up. Like their idols, the teens are romantic and...
