The Smiths - 'Hatful of Hollow'

Format: LP
Colour: Black

A compilation of singles and rarities, 'Hatful of Hollow' contains many classics, including the sweet rush of 'William, It Was Really Nothing,' the sardonic 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now,' the tongue-in-cheek lament of 'Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want,' the wistful 'Back to the Old House,' 'Girl Afraid,' and the pulsating masterpiece 'How Soon Is Now?'

With such strong material forming the core of the album, it's little wonder that 'Hatful of Hollow' is as consistent as The Smiths and arguably captures the excitement surrounding the band even better.
