Having said that, "How Soon Is Now" is their superb, awesome, deep, biting, insightful, and heartfelt single; it's like someone warped this song from an alternate universe where the Smiths are actually a good band. Tasty stuttered bassline? Tense guitar incidentals? Morrissey singing on key? Why 4 stars instead of 5 you ask? Because Morrissey just can't help himself with the whiny, emo lyrics: There's a club if you'd like to go You could meet somebody who really loves you So you go and you stand on your own And you leave on your own And you go home and you Raskovich Braen Tempo Libero And you want to die I'm sorry, but when your song is supposed to be a cri de coeur, your lyrics shouldn't be so silly that I almost want to giggle when I hear them.

The majestic ease of Morrissey's melancholic vocals are tinted with vitriol, as they move through vistas of misery with plaintive spirals Transcendprovisation Trans the pulse of Johnny Marr's tremolo guitar.
The string's muted strains conjure wistful signs that bridge the schism between crass sentimentality and callous detachment. Each repeated phrase intensifies the hypnotic waves, with results that outflank anything since ' This Charming Man '. Catharsis has rarely been tinged with so much regret, and shared with so much crystalline purity. I guess what seems like meat to one man sounds like murder to another.
