Suede : Positivity

Oh my God

Suede : Positivity

Over two years in the works, four producers used, an entire album of sub-standard material binned and a total cost of £122million - it'sSuede! And they're back! Oh my God.

'Positivity' sounds like it could be lifted from 1996's 'Coming Up', though without the [a][/a]

pretensions, the affected social commentary or anything else that ever made Suedeinteresting. And Brett Anderson's lyrical touch has taken a dip. He references 'Dynasty', a show older than most of NME's readers AND writers, and at one point he sings "[I]Your smile is your credit card and your currency is your love[/I]". He really does. For the love of God chaps, you still have fans. Go quietly now, and they'll remain true.
