Suede hit the ground running with this powerful and often thought-provoking debut album which spawned no fewer than 4 excellent hit singles, 'So Young', 'Animal Nitrate', 'Metal Mickey', and the glorious 'The Drowners'. The writing duo of Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler also worked their magic on some lovely slower songs such as the fascinating 'She's Not Dead', 'Sleeping Pills' and the closing track 'The Next Life'. It could be argued that the longer songs on the running order, such as 'Pantomime Horse' and 'Breakdown', could have been pared down somewhat but this is a minor quibble when the majority of the content here is so enjoyable. Conclusion:- A Britpop classic showcasing Anderson's silky vocal skills and Butler's superb guitar hooks.

Suede were one of Britpop's biggest bands, and are considered to be co-fonders of that whole wonderful scene, releasing their first single in 1992, only a month after Blur's 'Popscene', which signalled the beginning of a new movement.

Their self-entitled debut album, released in 1993, is one of Britpop's defining records, and still one of the London band's greatest achievements. With it's Smith's inspired lyrics, and the David Bowie flavoured 70's glam-rock sound, it's very little wonder that it proved so popular, and launched these London lads onto great, lasting success. 'Suede' even became the fastest selling album of the past ten years.

Together, vocalist Brett Anderson, who has a voice uncannily like Bowie's, and guitarist Brett Anderson co-wrote most of the tracks, and created a lot of magic together. The lyrics are often about dark and troubled circumstances, things that people can relate to, and wrapped around slick production and instantly memorable guitar lines with a melancholic melody sound.

The most famous song here is the outstanding rocker 'Animal Nitrate', a classic in the band's catalogue, and there are other hits in the shape of 'The Drowners', a raucous anthem which was also their debut single, 'Metal Mickey', which is especially Bowie-esque, and 'So Young', which also serves as the album's opening track. Another gem to highlight is the dreamy, melodic 'She's Not Dead', a moving tale of joint suicide.

Whenever I listen to Suede's glorious debut, I feel as though I am being transported back to that time, even though I was only aged one in 1993. This was a bold and brave first album, and has stood the test of time. The band attempted a variety sounds from pop rock, to ballads to grunge, and although not every song is quite as memorable as those wonderful singles, there is still plenty on it to merit a five star rating.

12 years on and suede's fantastic debut album still sounds like the most exciting record i've ever heard.so young, animal nitrate, the drowners,metal mickey...those were the days.who have we got to get excited about now? coldplay and embrace, oh please.music is so bland nowadays, not to mention safe.when i first saw animal nitrate on mtv i was a fifteen year old brought up on a diet of bryan adams, madonna and cheesy dance tunes.seeing brett anderson mincing it up and bernard butler throwing those guitar shapes changed my musical taste overnight and nothing was ever the same.suede were THE greatest band not just of the nineties but in my opinion ALL time.their first three albums are classics and while they may have lost their way with head music and a new morning they have done enough to go down as the best band of their generation.forget oasis, forget radiohead, if you haven't bought a suede album buy all of them now it'll change your life!

Excellent debut by possibly the definitive British band of the 90's and remastered with great quality. My only gripe are the bonus tracks, because it takes away some what from the album's original closer, the ethereally beautiful 'Next Life' one of the most touching songs ever created. There are many such ballads all over this album, marking Suede's trademark theatrical beauty from the start, particularly with the double barrel of Sleeping Pills and Breakdown, although their beauty is best captured on the dark, mesmerizing Pantomime Horse, which is somewhat reminiscent in structure to 'That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore' by the Smiths.

There are several other little nods to the noted band also, particularly on the opening track, with it's opening drum solo and piano break recalling 'Reel Around the Fountain,' the opening song on The Smiths debut. But Suede use their influences subtlety and both the music and lyrics are entirely the bands own, with only little nods to their influences in their overall aesthetic.

Aside from ballads, there are some rockers like the excellent, 'Metal Mickey' and the classic single, 'Animal Nitrate.' Suede prove themselves capable of several different sounds both musically and vocally, with Anderson's voice leaping from deep baritone to falsetto with great ease and finesse. His voice is quite unique and perhaps rather grating or difficult to enjoy for some, but perseverance will put an end to that.

This is the best Suede album by far, if you haven't heard anything by Suede, you've really missed out because they are one of the best bands of the Brit-Pop era. Along side others such as Elastica, Blur, Oasis, Stone roses, the Happy Mondays and others, Suede should definitely be in the top ten of Brit-Pop bands. This album, although not containing classics such as Beautiful ones, Electricity and Attitude, contains many great tracks. It is extremely good and I highly recommend it, however, if you're looking for the best Suede tracks, I would even higher recommend the Singles.
