There were only two bands worth listening to in the Britpop movement and neither of them were called Oasis. This album transcends the genre effortlessly, providing the definitive soundtrack to a generation for whom the alienation of the after party comedown became a lifestyle. Bernard Butler, a guitarist and arranger of prodigious talent and singer Brett Anderson looked set to take the world by storm. Instead they imploded after two albums. Suede went on to record another three, but this was surely their finest hour.
