Then comes the second half of the album, where things get really interesting.Read more ›
"Beautiful Loser" is one of my all-time favorite Suede songs, and I can't understand why it wasn't the first single. It features witty lyrics over a relentless guitar riff that burrows into your brain and won't leave. Instead, "Positivity" was the leadoff single, and it is probably the most un-Suede-like song they ever recorded, which led to a fan backlash.
In the interview included in the DVD of this set, Brett says that the songs he wrote for this album were pastoral and bucolic, but in the process of recording them they became transformed into (in his opinion) inferior tunes. I disagree, but his perspective is probably marred by memories of a difficult studio experience.
I give this set 5 stars because of Disc 2, which contains all of the b-sides. Together, they make up an impressively strong set of songs that in many ways outshine the songs on the actual album. "Simon" is a masterpiece, and the previously unreleased "Refugees" is amazing. To be honest, getting this reissue is like getting two complete albums in one - the b-sides are strong enough that they could have been released as Suede's 6th cd.Read more ›
that was so sorely lacking from the tepid and terrible Head Music. In fact, Head Music was so bad it nearly put me off Suede for good, but I decided to take one more chance... I'm glad I did.
This album has taken the Suede formula and injected some nice new flourishes, like the bleating rawness of Bretts voice, the harmonica on "Obsessions", the accoustic interlude of the title track. The tunes are solid, and yes it may be familiar, but in a comforting way rather than a repetitive one. Ignore the naysayers! Skip this one and you're doing yourself an injustice.
I dock one star because I still prefer Suede's more fantastic work, but you have to respect what they've tried for and accomplished here. This album is really cohesive and interesting, and not a bad listen either.

I could never get the extra songs to play, format too old. Only reason why I bought this. What a bummer. Filler of an album.Published on March 9, 2013 by carlos godoy
It was probably a good thing that Suede disbanded after this album, because they were definitely on a downward trajectory over the course of their final three albums (not including... Read morePublished on February 16, 2013 by too_old_to_be_so_indie
Suede are a band that should've quit right after their third album, owing to my premise that most bands creativity goes down the drain after 3 albums and then they end up rehashing... Read morePublished on August 21, 2011 by Pigtart
A NEW MORNING é o último cd que a banda britânica SUEDE gravou. Gostei muito de Positivity e Obsessions.Published on October 16, 2010 by Jose Marcos Paulino

I was skeptical of this, I must admit, after the disappointing Head Music. Like most Suede fans, I view the first three albums and Sci-Fi as absolutely stellar perfect music. Read morePublished on March 1, 2007 by rc
I was sitting in a hotel room in Shanghai fighting jet-lag when an 'acoustic' Suede hit my TV at 3am in the morning. It was Suede performing this album to an Asian audience. Read morePublished on May 10, 2006 by Paul A. Kirwan
I will say, "A New Morning" does take some getting used to. Again, Suede have taken a completely different direction from their previous works, and the result is a light,... Read morePublished on February 7, 2006 by Vera
This album comes as a logical successor to Suede's 1999 album "Head Music"; but with a generally stronger songwriting and slightly grittier vocals from leader Brett Anderson, this... Read morePublished on December 10, 2005 by Morten Vindberg
