25 Best of the Best Album : 15. Louder Than Bombs--The Smiths

Another band that made nice albums but even nicer singles.

And much like the Cure didn't always bother to put their singles on their albums.

It's a British way of doing business, whereas here in America (where I'm paying taxes) our bands have always used the single as the sucker punch to make us buy the whole album. For a British group, they make you buy the single or wait what seems like a very long time to buy the eventual "Greatest Hits" collection.

Then once they break up, it seems as if they never run out of ways to reconfigure the same hits.
