Suede  :  Obsessions

A dark cloud hangs over Suede right now. Their new ‘positive’ direction has been greeted with an apathetic shrug by everyone but the most devoted, so it’s promising to see a return to the darker side of the band with this sweetly sordid saunter round the stalker side of El Anderson’s psyche.

However the sad truth is that 'Obsessions' may be Suede's last half-decent single. Sounding like 'Trash' mark 2, it's the best pick from an album that remains about as troubling to the UK Top Ten as 'The Very Best Of Echobelly'. If Brett hasn’t made any resolutions for 2003 yet, let NME offer some advice - knock out the Greatest Hits and a final tour now, before everyone stops caring altogether.
