24 tracks including "Is It Really So Strange," "London" and "Half A Person"

Digitally remastered edition of this 1987 compilation from the legendary British quartet. One can only imagine how infuriated Smiths fans in the States were when they bought their expensive import copy of The World Won't Listen at the end of February 1987, only for an approximate American equivalent to emerge only just over a month later. (It hit record store shelves on March 30.)

Mind you, the track listing wasn't exactly identical, but there was certainly plenty of duplication to be had, which would rankle any fan. That said, it's pretty easy to argue that Louder Than Bombs is the superior compilation, given that it features such classic tracks as "Sheila Take a Bow," "Shoplifters of the World Unite," "Panic," "Ask," and many, many more. Heaven knows you won't be miserable about the contents if you're a Smiths fan.
