Meat Is Murder ... is better recorded than The Smiths, although it's more a bunch of songs that didn't fit on singles than a coherent album. When it's good, it's great.

AllMusic

With their second proper album Meat Is Murder, the Smiths begin to branch out and diversify, while refining the jangling guitar pop of their debut.

While it is far from being a terrible record (it is actually quite impressive), it pales in comparison to the incredible potential displayed on their first album.

What can be expected after such a strong debut as The Smiths?
A decent continuity, achieved by a great team who keeps the fire burning by burning himself.

anyone who tells you this isn't the best album ever made is wrong
