This album really seems to divide opinion. Even though i was a big suede fan back in the day, i had paid pretty much zero attention to brett's solo career as i tend to have slight committment issues when it comes to music. Having seen suede at 02 recently i was so blown away that i decided to investigate. The first album has a couple of good tracks on it but some of it is pretty poor in my opinion. However it inexplicably was more favourably reviewed than wilderness, which was pretty much ripped apart. In fact the reviews were so bad that i decided not to bother with it. I then watched a few live performances on you tube and really liked them. When i listen to wilderness i wonder if i am listening to the same album as the one which was so reviled. It's not perfect but brett's voice sounds great, and there are a couple of brilliant songs - blessed and funeral mantra are my particular favourites. I also love back to you but not the version on here unfortunately - emmanuelle seigner ruins it for me. I can see what he was going for but it doesn't work. Do yourself a favour and download the version from Pleasure 2 instead.

I have a feeling that the criticism of this album was as much about brett as about the album itself. Some people just don't like him, others used to and can't seem to accept that he is getting older and isn't going to be making glam/trash pop songs any more. At times he can seem a bit po-faced and humourless so i can understand why wilderness may not be to everyone's taste. However if you are looking for a melancholy album with a great voice at its centre then you will enjoy this.

A far more rounded affair than his self-titled first album; Wilderness is simple and deep, very deep.

Back to You is, perhaps, his greatest work since Dog Man Star and would make an epic soundtrack to a British blockbuster. A Different Place, The Empress and Chinese Whispers are all astounding.

Not an album for everybody, but legendary for some.

Desafortunadamente Brett Anderson no logra superar su primer trabajo como solista, pero indudablemente estamos hablando de una grandiosa secuela. Canciones con un toque mágico de melancolia. No escucharse si se encuentra deprimido.

I was unsure about going down the road of tracking ex suede front man Brett Anderson, but when I was looking through
Amazons online catalogue I came across this little gem.
I decided to purchase and give a listen.
Well, I have to say this is one of the best collection of music and songs that has brushed my sound sensations for some time.Wilderness

I'm probably fortunate, I never knew Suede and certainly never heard their music. I came to Brett Anderson fresh, via 'Wilderness' when it was featured on 'The Society of Sound'

The title fits well; this is not an upbeat pop album, but a reflective and carefully considered set of tracks that have been crafted together. Haunting melodies, emotional lyrics and great musicianship.

If you like Blur, Pulp or other Brit pop, it may not appeal.

One of my favourite albums of recent years.

Truly wonderful. Have a listen

I hope anyone thinking of buying this album is not put off by the lukewarm review in Uncut magazine. If you're into miserable this release is a must.
Anderson's vocals are mixed way up-front with minimal backing - mainly piano - throughout. This is a stark, chilling, graphic document - forlorn, hopeless, heartbroken; beautifully written, sung and played. Like 'Pink Moon' by the late, incomparably great Nick Drake (in my opinion THE greatest British singer-songwriter of all time) 'Wilderness' clocks in at around thirty minutes, which - given the nature of the record - is just about spot on.
As a big fan of Suede since the debut album I would say that 'Wilderness' is Anderson's finest work yet. Absolutely magnificent!

I know music is a very personal thing, and what inspires one person will leave another cold. I also don't profess to be a musical expert in any way. However I am at a bit of a loss to understand some of the strong criticisms of this album. I am not a dyed in the wool Suede or Brett Anderson fan, but came to this album with an open mind. Personally I find it hauntingly beautiful. Yes it is painfully melancholic at times, speaking as it does of lost love and the deep and unremitting anguish this can leave one feeling. But the beauty of this album is the stark unadulterated simplicity of a man conveying that emotion. I am sure that Brett wrote this from the heart, and if you have ever felt that heart tearing, gut wrenching feeling of loss, then you will understand this album fully, and relate on a deeply emotional level with it. My personal favourite tracks are A different place, Chinese Whispers, Clowns, and Blessed, but I think every track has merit. It has encouraged me to invest in more of Suede and Brett's solo work. I love this album even though I often cannot listen to it without crying, and I cannot recommend it enough.
