Suede – Bloodsports

A photocopy...

The baggy-trousered Suedeheads of the Nineties are now forty year-old accountants, but Brett and co. have turned to an old flame in original producer Ed Buller, dramatising their way into creating a bright return. ‘Barriers’ is a field-wide opener, stating the point that Suede can still write pop songs. The mountain of riffs carried throughout are lustful and shamelessly British, especially in single ‘It Starts And Ends With You’. This is a photocopy of the original Britpop blueprint.
