5.0 out of 5 stars a staggering achievement for a first album. a 90's classic., 16 Nov 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Suede (Audio CD)
suede's first album, (cunningly entitled suede) is a classic. i would recomend it thouroughly. i a massive suede fan, (especially of their earlier songs which were so much better than their newer stuff), before suede's music changed and bernard butler left. i have all the suede songs ever on CD and i think that this is their best album, though followed closely on it heels by 'dog man star'. this is a truly superb debut album. not only are all of the songs amazing but the lyrics are clever metaphors and flow well with suberb guitar parts and the fantastic rhythms. Bernard Butler's stunning guitar skills intermining with brett anderson's beautiful vocals and their clever, imaginative songwriting is a recipe for success. no wonder this record won the 1993 Mercury music prize. remember also to listen to their amazing B sides from that era too, such as 'my insatiable one' 'to the birds' 'he's dead' 'painted people' and the b sides from the dog man star singles too which i also recommend but you won't want to listen to dog man star as often as 'suede' you should also hear 'wonderful sometimes', 'be my god' and 'art' which are their first three never 'never released' songs. they can be found on the high hopes bootleg CD or on a bootleg CD i mixed myself entitled 'early birds' which contains all suede's early rare tracks, all B'sides up till and including the 'new generation' B sides and some of the covers suede did.
