i purchased this unofficial pressing in Holland, even though it has uk on label. unfortunately, after doing Spectral Analysis, the source is MP3 so if you're into collecting coloured Smiths vinyls, fine but if sound quality is a must then stick with the CD / Original Vinyl release.

Can someone please advise regarding an issue.I bought my copy from Japan but it has a black cd tray. I have read reviews that states it has a white CD tray. Can anyone shed any light on this?

My copy displays "ROUGH 81 A2" and "ROUGH 81 B2" as opposed to A1 and B1. Any info on that?

One of the regrets I have in my music life is not getting into the real 80s music while in high school and this album is one of them. I can still remember the intro of How Soon Is Now and it's punish lyrics. Though it was never my favorite album when I learned about the Smiths, The Queen is Dead is the one that lived in my CD player until I found this album, now Meat Is Murder lives in my iPod.
