Most The Smiths fans regard The Queen Is Dead (1986) as their finest album. Me, I'm not so sure. Meat Is Murder (1985) is to me a perfect record as well, and maybe, just maybe, it's even better than The Queen Is Dead. "Well I Wonder" is one of the album's nine faultless songs, a melancholy pop ballad of the kind that Morrissey and Johnny Marr really knew how to write. The sound of rain towards the song's end is the kicker, a really neat little studio trick.
