Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Suede's self-titled debut is in many ways the birthplace of what came to be called Britpop. In 1992 there were very few British bands who sang in colloquial accents and played like they'd listened to nothing but glam-rock Bowie since the day they were born. Mired in the deadening claustrophobia of satellite towns, aggressive sex and cheap pills, ambitious tracks like "The Next Life" and "Pantomime Horse" promise greatness but lack sufficient grace and drama. Likewise guitarist Bernard Butler at times muddies the Suede sound with a needless profusion of overdubs. Following on from their triumphantly ambitious first three singles, which are included here, some of Suede's debut feels surprisingly like filler material. Yet despite its obvious shortcomings and the inclusion of first album immaturities like the surprisingly tame "Animal Lover", Suede is the sound of a great British band being conceived. --James Littlewood

It is the early 90s. Even your idiot brother likes Nirvana. Your check shirt feels like a hairshirt and you deserve it. You and your generation seem to have thrown your lot in with unseemly American slacker angst; a desperate abrogation of youth and desire. Then this...
It is impossible to overstate the beauty and inspiration that this record brought us. An extraordinary misfit singer, yelping and swooning over sordid tales of drugs, sex and ennui wrapped in a suburban concrete overcoat. A phenomenal guitarist, trilling and hammering a clutch of instantly world-class riffs. A band to match.
You will have heard all about Britpop oasis blah blah blur. This is the one that mattered. The elements that would later teeter to cliche - the 'beautiful loser' lyrics, the glamorama, the seediness - are embodied most memorably in three crunching singles - Animal Nitrate, The Drowners, Metal Mickey. Then there are the 'keepers' - Sleeping Pills, Pantomime Horse and the aching melody of the Next Life. Like a call to arms to the emotionally dispossessed this album not only put a stiletto heel into the notion that there were no great bands anymore, but also exuded the kind of self-conscious Britishness that pre-figured the vibrant Britpop era.
Of course there were choppier (and poppier) waters ahead, with the departure of guitarist Bernard Butler, the re-birth of Coming Up, the lapses into semi-parody. But set against the context of today's drab indie-rock, Suede seems like a glorious vindiction of brutal, confused youth and the redemptive power of brilliant music: despite all the stardust and glitterballs there can be nothing more humane and honest than that.

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.

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

For a brief period of time in 1992 and 1993 it looked like Suede were going to conquer the world, a prospect brought about solely on the basis of this album. And what an album it is. It sounds like the record The Smiths would have made were they relocated to Essex, forced to listen to Bowie and T-Rex for a year and locked in a porn shop with access to nothing but skin mags and poppers. It's gloriously sleezy and it just romps along from the brash opening chords of 'So Young' to the haunting final echoes of 'Next Life'.

At the time, pretty much everyone ditched this album as soon as 'Dog Man Star' came out - I'm not sure whether that record has stood the test of time as well as this one. I certainly don't think they ever matched the sheer energy and glamour of their debut. It still stands up now and is definitely one for the collection. If you want to call yourself a muso, you HAVE to own 'Suede'.
