5.0 out of 5 stars It all seemed so promising, 24 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Suede (Audio CD)
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'.
