Louder Than Bombs" is a compilation of their singles, and none (as far as I know, and being a lazy sod, I'm not looking this up as I write this essay) ever made it on to an official Smiths album. The Smiths were brilliant in releasing incredible B-Sides, which traditionally were throw-a-way songs, and not meant to have any attention attached to them. But, all of us vinyl lunatics know that is not necessarily true, and The Smiths had brilliant songs placed in the obscure position of being forgotten

That album was Louder Than Bombs. As such, this albumk features many often-overlooked Smiths gems that didn't find their way onto the main albums. As this is, essentially, a compilation rather than an album, I feel it should be judged by its individual songs rather than its merits as a coherent album. Most of these songs were, after all, originally released as either singles or B-sides. Nothing too special by The Smiths' standards, but still a very good song. It loses its effect on this album somewhat because it's sonically quite similar to Is It Really So Strange" Quite brilliantly, it contains an instruction to 'Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear. It deals with teenage alienation, but in an jaunty, skewed way only The Smiths could. Shoplifters Of The World Unite. 4/5 Still a staple of Morrissey's live sets.

Beanisend
Sounds muddy, too much mids. Has tracking problems on some songs also and I have a rega p5 so its not my table. Pitty, I was excited about this one.
Mr.Death
2564665877 not the best sounding release. Packaging is OK. I would like to find a better pressing.
FireWater
I had a bad experience with this pressing. My copy came with scratches and marks, some worse than others, but the sound itself was distorted and the record was slightly off center. I'm quite positive this pressing uses the exact same master as the 2011 Digital Remaster, which is junk. At least the packaging is nice, but it's overpriced too.
Grotilar
I often see this in record stores going for $40. That's way too much to spend, IMO. Luckily, I got mine at a great deal. It is a nice pressing with packaging that's a near replica of the original. Still, why the high price?
Mr.mclav
I think the high price is because it's a European pressing. North American shop owners have to pay more for shipping and price conversion so they have to sell it for a higher price. Plus it is a double LP Gatefold.
Kegal
Is this the 180g version?
