Nice Morrissey avatar Max. I'm very much into him right now too. Beethoven was Deaf is my favorite album of his. Live album with some unique material recorded there.

I'm really into The Smith's core albums right now. I still need to check out his solo stuff.

Should be. I feel like Noctourniquet will age quite well over time.

1. Amputechture (10/10)
2. Frances the Mute (8/10)
3. Deloused (7.5/10)
4. Noctourniquet (7.5/10)
5. Bedlam (7/10)
6. Octahedron (6/10)

As you can see, Amputechture beats them all by quite a margin for me. I consider 5 out of 8 tracks to be masterpieces. I love that album so much. Cassandra Gemini is my favourite by them though.
