This sounds good to me. Good separation and no problems with the bass or sibilance.

Pretty good repress, not the best sounding record I own but I'd say it's enjoyable.

Curious for anyone who might have this pressing if yours has the printed inner sleeve or not. Thanks!

The Smiths’ self-titled debut was an astonishingly fresh approach to guitar-based pop in the mid-1980s. The British quartet worked as a fully functioning unit with each member bringing an economy of style. Johnny Marr’s swirling, arpeggiated pickings supplied an attractive jangle and provided a savvy counterpoint to the band’s unconventional lead singer, Steven Patrick Morrissey. Morrissey’s clever and emotionally naked lyrics probed and poked into confrontational topics ranging from homosexuality to the pains of child abuse. The album contains many Smiths classics, from “This Charming Man” (not included here on the UK release), with its indelible pop hook to the screaming absurdity of “Miserable Lie” where Morrissey becomes unhinged in playful torment. “What Difference Does It Make?” establishes Morrissey’s rhetorical side, while “Pretty Girls Make Graves” and “You’ve Got Everything Now” address the envy and angst of youth to stunning effect. Morrissey’s sense of a world gone wrong can be heard as empathy (“Suffer Little Children,” “Still Ill”) or as indignation (“I Don’t Owe You Anything”) — all told, a brilliant debut album from a band destined for glory.

Sounds “ok.” Not bad (quiet background, no surface noise, no sibilance) but not great either (somewhat lacking low end, somewhat mushy and compressed as others have stated.) Is it bad for a reissue? No, but it leaves me wanting to hear an original pressing from 1984.

The album is amazing, however this version does not have “This Charming Man” as mentioned at the Sleeve.
This Charming Man just released at US original version and some others reissues

Got this copy. Sire text under logo on both side A and side B label. Sound quality is great, and most importantly - This Charming man!
