Louder Than Bombs is a compilation album by English rock band The Smiths. It was released as a double album in March 1987 by their American record company, Sire Records. It peaked at number 62 on the US Billboard 200 album chart. Popular demand prompted their British record company, Rough Trade, to issue the album domestically as well. Upon its release in the UK in May 1987, it reached number 38 on the British charts

That album was Louder Than Bombs. As such, this albumk features many often-overlooked Smiths gems that didn't find their way onto the main albums. As this is, essentially, a compilation rather than an album, I feel it should be judged by its individual songs rather than its merits as a coherent album. Most of these songs were, after all, originally released as either singles or B-sides. Nothing too special by The Smiths' standards, but still a very good song. It loses its effect on this album somewhat because it's sonically quite similar to Is It Really So Strange" Quite brilliantly, it contains an instruction to 'Boot the grime of this world in the crotch, dear. It deals with teenage alienation, but in an jaunty, skewed way only The Smiths could. Shoplifters Of The World Unite. 4/5 Still a staple of Morrissey's live sets.

It includes hits such as the irresistible "Ask," the bouncing pop of "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" and the sad "Unlovable.

Compiling singles, B-sides, album tracks, and BBC sessions, LOUDER THAN BOMBS boasts a wealth of brilliant material including "Ask," "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" and "Unlovable. LOUDER THAN BOMBS is a necessary purchase for any Smiths fan.
