List Rules This list includes studio albums, so if you add an album, make sure it's a proper studio release. Only The Smiths - no Morrissey or other solo projects.

The Smiths are one of the most beloved British rock bands ever, and their music has truly stood the test of time. Before their too-soon breakup, the Smiths released some great music across numerous albums. This list includes all Smiths albums, including pictures of the album covers when available. Moreover, this Smiths discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Smiths albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included The Smiths singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Smiths album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Smiths album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
