Alongside the Manic Street Preachers, Suede were one of the more underexposed and underrated bands from the Britpop movement of the 90s when lined up alongside Blur and Oasis. However, their sound has always had a dark quality to it that many of their contemporaries lacked, blending the glam androgyny of Bowie with the morose sound of The Smiths. Their self-titled debut remains my favourite album by them (though Dog Man Star comes close) and an impressive start to the band's career. Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler really deliver on this album and can really be considered the successors to Morrissey and Johnny Marr. Anderson's vocals have this eerie ethereal quality to them and also have that theatrical Bowie tone to them which works on slower songs like 'Pantomime Horse' and 'Sleeping Pills' whilst Butler produces some killer punkish riffs on 'Animal Nitrate', 'Metal Mickey' and 'Animal Lover'. This album is pure emotion and eclecticism and definitely one of the best albums of the genre.

....This is a stunning debut, streets ahead of the paltry fare that Suede have offered us since Bernard Butler (their original guitarist) left. Songs of the quality of 'Animal Nitrate', 'The Drowners' and especially 'Metal Mickey' are rarely found nowadays, let alone together on a single album; don't pass up the opportunity. While not quite up to the standard of their masterpiece 'Dog Man Star', 'Suede' is another classic, pairing Butler's guitar heroics and Anderson's wild voice to brilliant effect. This album won the Mercury Music Prize in 1993, and thoroughly deserved it.

The pairing of brett anderson and bernard butler produced suede's only truly great albums, this and dog man star are some of the most beautiful work to come out of the much maligned britpop period. For me the standout track here is "the next life" which still takes my breath away 11 years later. A gem and i can't believe no one else loved it enough to put up a review

Beautiful, lustful, melancholy and desparate kitchen-sink poetry laid on exquisite, rapturous, ecstatic and tormented musical bliss: this is the album of it's decade; it resurrected some of the genius of the Smiths. Few have rivalled such a debut. Suede have never yet surpassed it.

This was without doubt the music highlight of the decade and easily the best debut album you will ever here. There isn't a bad song on the whole album, no wonder Suede were so critically acclaimed when they burst on the scene....

If I was stranded on a desert island for the rest of my life with only one disc to listen to, this would be it. Brett Anderson's voice is not everyone's cup of tea, and this ambitious, emotional, dramatic music is not for everyone. But for me, and without a doubt, Suede's debut album was the best album released in the 90s- British or otherwise. Almost ten years on, I still listen to it at least once a week. I am still waiting for the Suede album to match this one - Dog Man Star came close - let's hope "A New Morning" recaptures the brilliance!

Don't be distracted by Britpop, this had everything you want from a rock album - wailing vocals, driving guitar, cavernous soundscapes & exciting, jagged-edged songs.

When I listen to this album I can't believe its about 14 years old. Every song sounds fresh, unnique, and just fantastic. Turn it up. Put it on before a night out and wonder what all the fuss is over todays bands like Snow Patrol etc. Suede had glamour, style and coolness that makes a lot of todays bands look like supermarket music. Indie music is a lot more mainstream nowadays and there are some rock pools of great stuff out there but no one will sound like this again. Just like The Clash or The Smiths they had a niche. Get this, one of the best debut albums ever, turn it up and enjoy.

This album is a breathtaking debut; from the wailing guitar in the opening seconds of Animal Nitrate to the beautiful simplicity of piano & vocals in the sombre yet innocent Next Life. I bought this album in 1994, and with every play I still hear something new in each song. Paradoxically simple and complicated, I will never tire of this timeless masterpiece.
