Anderson and Butler combine superbly on this 1993 debut
on 18 October 2016
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.
