Product Description

Product Description

Suede were one of the pioneering bands of the Britpop era, combining sex, glamour, style and seediness with unmistakeable pop hooks. Singles is their first best-of collection, gathering together era-defining tracks such as "Metal Mickey", "Animal Nitrate", "Trash" and "The Beautiful Ones", as well as the brand new single "Attitude".

Amazon.co.uk

As this greatest hits-style collection--unglamourously entitled Singles--serves to prove, Suede were fashionably wasted and seedily sexy wretches years before catwalk pundits had even coined the phrase "heroin chic". Irrefutably the first great British band of the 1990s (they were, somewhat unwisely, dubbed "the new Smiths"), Suede stepped out from the despondent, suffocating shadow of moping American grunge with a head full of Ziggy Stardust and a hedonistic agenda of urban escapism, casual intercourse, recreational chemistry thrills and the sort of shoestring decadence that still makes the likes of "So Young" ("Let's chase the dragon" shrieked Brett Anderson) and "Animal Nitrate" the musical equivalent of promenading in a fur coat purchased from a charity shop. It was almost too good to last.

The ironically titled "Stay Together" (why not the full eight minute version?) was more grandiose in design but the mysterious union between Brett Anderson and furry-toned guitar maestro Bernard Butler was on the rocks and their marriage dissolved over the choice of mixer for the classic Dog Man Star, herein represented by the anthemic "We Are the Pigs", "New Generation" and "The Wild Ones". Guitar-slinging Poole Grammar school pupil Richard Oakes stepped into the breach and Suede became even more complicit with the charts via such brazen glam-pop stompers as "Trash" and "Electricity". Lately, though, Brett Anderson sounds more like an observer of rather than a participant in the pharmaceutically-addled underbelly of back-street British suburbia. The two exclusive new songs are slightly underwhelming ("Love the Way You Love" sounds like a Phil Oakey comeback) but every dog has its day and Suede have, with every justification, already earned their place in history. --Kevin Maidment

Admitting that I consider Suede something of a solid singles band, rather than being a big fan, I nevertheless bought the album on the strength of the singles. And if you like the singles it won't let you down. Hence the title "Singles", I suppose.
The album opens with the blistering, anthemic The Beautiful Ones, and follows with Animal Nitrate, for my money the best two tracks on the album. That's not to say that it goes downhill from there, but these are without doubt the standout tracks. The seedy, whining guitarwork, and gender-bending vocals on tracks such as The Drowners is a testament to the quality of Butler and Anderson as a lyrical and musical team.
The departure of Butler has led the band to explore new territory, writing less anthemic tunes, but still able to craft some fine music, as Everything Will Flow, and She's In Fashion prove. The Head Music album, indeed, was in my view chronically under-rated, the sound of a band who will probably never reach their peak of yore, but are still able to make accomplished music.
The album must surely appeal to anyone with a casual interest in the band, like myself, and the two songs will make it a worthy purchase for the more dedicated fans. Knowing and loving the bulk of the singles before I bought it, I'm well glad I spent my hard earned on it, and would encourage others to.

Despite their virtually being ignored in Britpop documentary "Live Forever", Suede played an enormous part in that movement. With a huge loyal fanbase their unique style has captivated those listening to their records for years.
Now a "Singles" collection arrives, and contains, if not everything a Suede fan needs, a good selection for 90's pop fans. Special mention must go to the singles from the first three albums, as although their last two have been perfectly good, they are not the classics that "Suede", "Dog Man Star" and "Coming Up" were.
The only odd thing about this collection is that it is largely paralled by a DVD called "Lost In TV" released a few years ago, which doesn't feature anything from the last album, but is probably a better product for fans.
Special mention must be given to the fact that a band as dependant on their guitarist as early Suede were managed to change guitarists and still produce an album like "Coming Up".
To entice fans we have two so-so new tracks and the infamous "Stay Together" now disowned by the band. Don't tell Brett I said this, but it's actually pretty good!
This is the third of the Britpop big four's best of albums, with Blur and Pulp already having put them out, that only leaves Oasis...

Suede emerged to a flurry of press in the early nineties replete with their own “cellophane sounds” name checking everyone from JG Ballard, to the Smiths and David Bowie. Brett Anderson obsession with the low rent glamour of suburbia was welded to some of the most expansive guitar work of the decade from Bernard Butler. In those early years Suede were glorious and imperious, they were one of the best song-writing partnerships to emerge since Morrissey and Marr themselves. This collection highlights that early period, from the sublime suburban glam of “Metal Mickey” to the sexual baiting of “Animal Nitrate” with its repeated refrain of “What does it take to turn you on?” Ballads are also here the heart-stopping and beautiful “The Wild Ones” being a highlight. The zenith of the Butler Anderson songwriting partnership comes on the skyscrapingly brilliant “Stay together” with its whirling guitar solos and Anderson’s majestic vocal.
Butler’s departure left a very different band to remerge in the Britpop years, streamlined and slimmed down(Richard Oake's now on guitar's) Suede were now stripped of their mystique, but producing glam pop for the easy to use generation. The highlight of this period was the gloriously anthemic “Trash” with its communally identifying chorus line of “We’re trash you and me / We’re the lovers on the streets the litter on the breeze” in many ways this is Suede’s Heroe’s the ultimate statement of hope through struggle.
Head Music’s singles were characterised by an increasingly electronic palette from the excellent “Electricity” to the beautiful shuffle of “ Everything will flow.

By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 Dec. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Suede were never one of my favourite bands to come from the Britpop phenomenal, although I did like a handful of their singles, particularly 'Filmstar', which never fails to boast my mood. This excellent compilation does what the title says, and gathers all of the singles from 1992 to 2003 together, as well as two new songs, 'Attitude' and 'Love Is The Way You Love'. Please note, that the version of 'Trash' used here, is a slightly different, alternative version, but all of the rest are the single versions.

As I listened to these songs back-to-back, I realised what works of art they really are. Tracks such as 'Animal Nitrate' and 'Trash' are uplifting stories of people managing, through difficult circumstances, to gain their self-esteem. Slower songs such as 'The Wild Ones' and 'Saturday Night' are beautiful, slow and simple, and sang with so much emotion. This album has it all, but it's mostly catchy and lively, and a solid greatest hits package showcasing a highly creative and talented band. The booklet contains the CD artwork for each of the singles, with the lyrics printed underneath.
