The Smiths: Meat Is Murder (33 1/3 Series) by Joe Pernice
The Smiths: Meat Is Murder (33 1/3 Series)

markslaughtered, June 20, 2008

I began the 33 1/3 series when I picked up the Meat Is Murder edition. I always found the Smiths to be interesting, dark and amusing but reading Pernice's take on the album I found myself realizing that we do this same thing with other albums from our past before IPOD's and mix cd's. They bring back a time and place from our youth and memories of unrequited whatever. It also forced me to listen more closely to the album never realizing that what I was hearing at the end of the album was the sound of a bone saw slicing flesh and bones of animals! Very clever take on how to write a review too. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and came to appreciate the Smith's music a bit more as a result. It also made me search the rest of the 33 1/3 series for something as entertaining as Pernice's take and, as usual that search has gone...unrequited.
