Format: Audio CD
This is the latest instalment in the series of retrospective Suede releases that followed the group's 2010 live reunion. "The albums collection" presents all 7 Suede studio albums, including their fantastic 2-disc B-Sides collection "Sci-fi lullabies" as well as recent studio album "Bloodsports", on CD format, in cardboard replica sleeves, with inner sleeves, plus a 60-page mini book. The albums' tracklists are these from the original LPs, with no B-sides or extra tracks. Since there is no booklet to each album, the mini book serves as one. The mini book is probably the show-stealer of the entire package, a beautifully designed accompaniment, providing information about each Suede album track individually, as given by the band themselves. It is fascinating to learn how these songs came to life, surely all Suede heads will delve into it (I could not stop until I read the whole thing in an afternoon)!

Enjoy the raw fierceness of their eponymous debut; the sublime beauty of "Dog man star"; the unstoppable passion of "Coming up"; the irresistible magnificence of "Sci-fi lullabies"; the urban alienation of "Head music"; the mellow optimism of "A new morning"; and the sophisticated energy of "Bloosports". Witty lyrics, inspired melodies, loud guitars, epic orchestrations, electrifying sex appeal; this unmistakable Suede-ness made Suede the kings of glam in the early 90s, and this collection is ideal for anyone who wants to experience and treasure the grandeur of this iconic band. For those who wish to explore the band even further, I would recommend the 2011 expanded re-mastered 2CD/DVD combos or, alternatively, the vinyl editions which are still available to buy individually in limited quantities. This is a collection guaranteed to excite, not just satisfy, purchase with no hesitation!

If you, like me, grew in the digital era, this is a great way to buy every Suede album to fill your collection. The package is beautiful and the vinyl-replica covers are fantastic.

Suede's discography it's one of the strongest in british rock, they're a true legendary band pretty much underated even in their country. The high lights are Suede, Dog Man Star, Coming Up and the b-sides double-compilation Sci-Fi Lullabies - but Head Music, A New Morning and the new Bloodsports are quite fine albums as well.

The best part is definetly the 60 page book with the band talking about EACH SONG of the box. It's absolutely fantastic and it makes the price worth just by itself.

The only flaw is the lack of a booklet for each album. I just bought a David Bowie 1995-2003 box and it kept each booklet with original artwork for each album. In this box, there's no booklet for the albums; under the album covers, there's only the cd, which is a big shame.

Anyway, I believe it still worth buying - it would be cool if the band or fans could put the original artwork of each album in the forum so we could print and put in the box, then this fantastic box would be complete
