Released in 1985, the album showcases Morrissey's poignant lyricism and Johnny Marr's jangly guitar work. The title track, "Meat Is Murder," serves as a powerful indictment of animal cruelty, and its impact goes beyond music, making a bold statement about ethical choices. Tracks like "The Headmaster Ritual" and "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" contribute to the album's introspective and melancholic atmosphere. "Meat Is Murder" is a quintessential part of The Smiths' discography, blending lyrical depth with musical innovation.
