“The World Won't Listen is a compilation album by English rock band The Smiths. It was released in February 1987 by their record company, Rough Trade Records, and reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart, staying on the charts for 15 weeks.”– Wiki

“The legendary Manchester four piece might have existed for a very short time span, but nevertheless, their traces in Indie music cannot be overheard. Though as especially Morrissey complained that the world did not listen. Oh yes, the world listened—some listened closer than others. The name The World Won’t Listen, which was released on February 23rd, 1987, was chosen by Morrissey as a reaction to the ignorance of the mainstream press and audience towards the band’s output, and ironically enough, it reached no. 2 in the UK charts. Compiling singles and B-Sides, it gave a good insight into the band’s single history, including B-Sides like  “Asleep” one of our editorial teams favorite Smiths tracks.” – Post-Punk
