100% pure unadulterated Johnny Marr. The nearest thing musically we've had to a Smiths album since 1987. The solo album is finally here. Even though Johnny has collaborated with many musicians and played with numerous bands since The Smiths, The Messenger is Johnny Marr at his best. Very familiar but new and progressive. The vocals are his best yet. A huge leap forward from Boomslang. OVERALL..................BRILLIANT!
