Customer Reviews

Brilliant!

This album ranks as one of the greatest debut albums of all time. Like Nirvana in the U.S., Suede kick started the huge Brit-pop movement, emerging in the early 90's to incredible hype, and after hearing this album, it is clear to see why. The band chemistry is mesmerizing. At the center is a songwriting partnership between the operatic vocalist Brett Anderson, and the superhumanly brilliant guitarist and producer, Bernard Butler. Butler's extraordinary musicianship is what sets Suede apart other bands of this era. He has a unique gift for crafting dark, distinctive, and sensual soundscapes, with near Hendrixian guitar leads that are full of flash and raunch. Expressive guitar playing is an important part of Suede’s sound. In terms of influences, Butler connects the dots between John Squire's (Stone Roses) ringing melody's to the intricate textures of Johnny Marr (Smiths) combining them with a David Gilmour like sensitivity, and the glam crunch of Mick Ronson and early 70’s rock. The results are spectacular. His guitar playing is second to none, easily the best of his generation and among the best guitar players of all time. Although the guitar playing is virtuoso, it is never indulgent, and serves to heighten the songs; which are always accessible. Anderson's lyrics are intense, and poignant. Although his over the top vocals may seem strange at first (stay with it!) after a few listens the strength of the music takes over, and you will find it hard to get these tunes out of your head. The music just works, with Anderson's vocals and Butler's guitar in a constant and complementary duet (hence the term “band chemistry”). Many of the songs are structured as singles (the desperate escape of ‘So Young,’ the feverish and sexual ‘Animal Nitrate,’ and the stomping ‘Metal Mickey’) but there are other more adventurous tracks (the intense and dramatic Pantomime Horse, The Next Life, and Sleeping Pills). This re-issue also includes many B-sides from the era, which are every bit good as the album tracks (the must hear “My Insatiable One,” for example). Some of the rarities (Diesel, Just A Girl) are interesting but not essential. The Bowie/ T. Rex influences in Suede’s music may seem obvious to some, but Suede are able to synthesize them in an entirely fresh - and distinctive - way.

If you like great (brit) pop music with a lot of depth, buy this album. You will not be disappointed.

Biography

Formed: 1989 in London, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Suede, known as the London Suede in the U.S., kick-started the Brit-pop revolution of the '90s, bringing English indie pop/rock music away from the swirling layers of shoegazing and dance-pop fusions of Madchester, and reinstating such conventions of British pop as mystique and the three-minute single. Before the band had even released a single, the U.K. weekly music press was proclaiming them as the "Best New Band in Britain," but Suede managed to survive their heavy hype due to the songwriting...
