Borrowing heavily from David Bowie & the Smiths, Suede forge a distinctively seductive sound on their 1993 CLASSIC DEBUT.

Guitarist Bernard Butler has a talent for crafting effortlessly catchy, crunching glam hooks like the controlled rush of "Metal Mickey" & the slow, sexy grind of "The Drowners," but he also can construct grand, darkly romantic soundscapes like the sighing "Sleeping Pills" & the tortured "Pantomime Horse." What brings these elegant sounds to life is Brett Anderson whose voice is calculatedly affected & theatrical, but it fits the grand emotion of his self-consciously poetic lyrics. while the sound of Suede frequently recalls the peak of glam rock, its punk-influenced passion & self-conscious appropriation of the past make it thoroughly postmodern. Coincidentally, its embrace of trashy pop helped usher in an era of Britpop, but few bands captured the theatrical melancholy that gave Suede such resonance.
