Bloodsports is a comeback album from Britpop band Suede released in 2013 and is their 6th studio album, it shows both confidence and certainty with our rockers still dripping brilliantly with those unexpected chord changes, and Brett Anderson's melodramatic lyrics suiting their vivid electrifying music. This album reignites the Suede chemistry and delivers 10 heartfelt, darkly romantic, majestic, menacing and carnal tracks; Suede plays ballads as if they're anthems and vice-versa. Anderson claims the album is all “about the endless carnal game of love” and tracks the path of a relationship from infatuation through estrangement to break-up. All I can say is that for me at least, they do it all brilliantly with the old Suede magic.
