Re: The Power

No idea, but several of the 20th anniversary reviews said that. Guess optimism has no place in the modern age. Unfortunately, no. We live in an age of cynicism. If I'd have to pick a point, where Suede sound dated, it would probably be Coming Up, due to the production to wrap it in a retro bubble a...

Re: Night Thoughts : masterpiece, after all ?

Funny I just listened to it the other night over a wee while and went deep into it, it just grasps you. It's tense, and very heavy I'd say, the emotions, the paranoia, claustrophobic fear, it's evident in lyrics and music. As far as masterpieces go, to me Suede and Dog Man Star are masterpieces. But...

Re: The Power

Re: Hope Sandoval

Thought the single with Kurt Vile was great and had some tasty guitars like you said. Indeed a bit Bernardy! Though most rest of the album is a bit too samey and doesn't go anywhere for me. Whereas the Mazzy Star reunion album did.

Re: What Pets Do You Have?

Don't really like cats, the selfish bastards :P so would have a dog, but I believe owning one in the city is harsh on it and you should have one only if you live in the country or there's enough nature around for it all of the time.

Re: Luke Haines Smash The System

Hmph, didn't impress me at all, and neither have his other recent solo outings. Feels like he's forcing it nowadays.
