Post-punk pantheon

By PHOENIX STAFF  |  July 16, 2007

And the lyric-sheet has its flaws: “Nowhere Fast” (“I’d like to drop my trousers to the Queen . . . ”) is Moz-by-numbers, and flouncing through the veggie anthem of the title track he succumbs — for perhaps the only time in his career — to piety.

So it’s neither a great Johnny Marr album, nor a great Morrissey album. But as a Smiths album, Meat Is Murder is a life-changer: a fully-loaded syringe of wit and victimhood, aimed at the heart of the world.
— J.P.
