One Of The Best Bands Of The 90's!,
This review is from: Singles (Audio CD)
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...
