The Smiths ‎– Meat Is Murder 

A TAV Curator's Pick.

Meat Is Murder is the second studio album by English rock band the Smiths. It was released on 11 February 1985 by Rough Trade Records and became the band's sole number one album in the UK charts during the band's lifetime, staying on the chart for thirteen weeks. – Wiki

“The Smiths’ more socially conscious second album ‘Meat Is Murder’ shot to Number One. Their initial blaze of outsider excitement coagulated around the bullied, the beaten, the terminally lonely and the militantly vegetarian and a classic album was born.” – NME 

“The 1980s required resilience from those of Morrissey and Johnny Marr’s disposition, whose agenda conflicted so starkly with the political and pop mainstream of the time. In 1985, The Smiths released their second album, ‘Meat Is Murder’, a continuation of the band’s uniquely effete defiance, but also a shift towards engaging with the contemporary figures and policies they would come to openly execrate, both on vinyl and in public.” – Clash
