If U2 had called it a day in 1986, we'd have a close contest. But come on, Smiths have been easily surpassed here.

I see it somewhat differently.

For me it is a band with 4 top shelf albums from the 80's v a band with 4 top shelf albums (1 from the 80's and 3 from the 90's)

Pretty tight.

There is an argument IMO for saying The Smiths have one of the tightest discographies in history.

4 brilliant records released in space of just 3 and a half years - all highly critically acclaimed and highly influential.
