    Had Hatful of Hollow on in the car this morning while taking my kid to a band workshop. "Music's good, but the singer's a whiner" is how my son summed up the Smiths. I can't disagree.

    To me, absolutely. One of my favorites. Part of the soundtrack of my teen years.

    To most others, they're probably not.
