“The Queen is Dead” is the third studio album by the English rock band The Smiths, released on June 16, 1986 – this is the 2012 reissue. The album is regarded as one of the band’s most iconic and influential works, representing a high point in their discography. The album is characterized by the distinctive blend of Morrissey’s evocative lyrics and Johnny Marr’s jangly guitar melodies, accompanied by the rhythmic backbone provided by bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. The Smiths’ trademark sound, which merges elements of indie rock, post-punk, and alternative rock, is on full display throughout the record.

Lyrically, “The Queen is Dead” is marked by Morrissey’s wit, social commentary, and literary references. The album’s themes range from disillusionment with authority and society (“The Queen is Dead”) to introspective explorations of love and loneliness (“There Is a Light That Never Goes Out”). Morrissey’s distinctive vocal delivery, filled with emotion and longing, adds depth and resonance to the lyrics.
