Editorial Reviews

Brett Anderson and Company Return for their Fifth Album with a New Lease on Life. The Press Has Documented that this is the First Suede Album that is Not Influenced by Any Hallucinogens and it Shows. That Isn't to Say all the Effects Are Gone, but Anderson's Voice Sounds Stronger Than it Ever Has and He Can Still Reach High Notes with Ease. The Songs Are More Worldly Than Otherworldly, More One on One, More....romantic. The Disc also Includes Plenty of Exclusive Enhanced Material that Documents the Recording Sessions in Pictures and Video Clips. This Limited Edtion also Includes the Bonus Tracks "You Belong to Me" plus the Hidden Track "Oceans", which Can Be Found Near the End of the Last Track Space.

After several years of waiting, Suede finally gives us their fifth studio album and, I'm happy to say, "A New Morning" was worth the wait. Track 1.) Positivity is pure pop brilliance that gets instantly stuck in your head. Producer Steven Street adds just enough strings to make respectable an otherwise poppy Tony Hoffer (the first producer) production. Track 2.) Obsessions is like a "Coming Up" version of "New Generation" with Alex Lee on harmonica for good measure. You'll be humming the chorus all day. Track 3.) Lonely Girls begins with a Simon & Garfunkel style, strummed acoustic guitar, piano and viola, then later bongos and full strings come in to fill out the sound for an over-all Bowie-esque feel. Track 4.) Lost in TV is a great song made up of acoustic guitars and organs that has a poppy melody reminiscent of a Lightning Seeds songs and chorus vocals that allude to Queen. Track 5.) Beautiful Loser is a disappointing song for me and is in stark contrast to the lovely, mellow Lost in TV that precedes it. It's written in the gritty and raunchy fashion of "She" or the b-side "Bored," but not nearly as catchy or addictive as either of those. The really interesting thing is Brett sings on this song in a style I haven't heard him use before. Toward the end his vocals take on a raspy, throaty quality that I can only compare to Paul McCartney. Weird. Nonetheless, it's probably my least favorite song on the album, followed by my second least favorite song on the album, Track 6.) Street Life. This is more rehashed "Head Music" era Suede. Fast tempo with typical Suede-styled vocal distortion like the chorus on the b-side "Together," only not nearly as technically well done. This one is growing on me though.
Then comes the second half of the album, where things get really interesting.

Even Brett Anderson tries to disown this album. In his notes for this deluxe edition, he writes, "...there's a part of me that sometimes thinks we shouldn't have made it at all." I happen to think it has its own charm - it's not something designed to shock (like their debut), or inspire awe (like Dog Man Star), or sell truckloads via instant pop classics (like Coming Up). It's simply an enjoyable album, recorded by a very talented team of songwriters. Brett's voice is terrific here: somewhat cigarette-ravaged and world-weary. Richard Oakes' guitar work is excellent, and new member Alex Lee's instrumental abilities add a lot to the mix.

"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.

Let me start of by saying this is not on the level of dog man star. There will never be another dog man star, until Bernard rejoins. Get that through your head, and you will discover that A New Morning is on a par with if not better than the better than it should have been comeback album, Coming Up. The tracks here are infused with an energy and yes, "positivity"
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.

Listening to this album, you get the feeling the reference in the title is to the rest of Suede's catalogue. After that lurid, exhilerating, sometimes incomprehensible dream, you have this album; lucid and stark. The theme is best shown in the split track 'Untitled/Morning' where sickly romanticism ("Like flies on a windscreen / and like insects in glue / we could - _stick together_ - if you wanted to") gives way to the clean chords and simple lyrics of 'Morning.' The album as a whole, though, doesn't share Morning's cautiosly upbeat tone. Suede's ballads have always taken place in tired urban settings, and never has this world been dealt with less romantically than here. The lyrics are much sparer and the music less lilting; there are no violin ballads like 'Everything Will Flow,' or surreal romps like 'So Young' or other songs from the earier period. Many of the songs sound simply weak at first listen, they're so understated, but in particular 'Lost in TV' and 'Untitled' have a quiet power which becomes apparent after a couple of listens. 'Astrogirl' gives a hint of the old days, and is a really terrific song. The closing sequence is perfectly ordered; the centerpiece of 'Untitled/Morning,' followed by the faint promise of relief in 'One Hit to the Body' and ending with the fully realized, vocally lush 'When the Rain Falls,' which sounds like an offer of truce with the world. The extra tracks on the end aren't up to much, though, only confirming my theory that the 'minor' songs were the ones that suffered with Butler's departure.
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.
