  1. Song for song, it's better and more consistent than Head Music... thanks partially to Stephen Street's focused, flattering production, but also due to a sharp set of songs.
  2. It's difficult to overcome consistently lame, often meaningless lyrics-- especially with Suede's classic rock focus on singer and melody-- but they cope.
  3. At its best, 'A New Morning' sees Suede show off their vulnerable side again. It won't attract any new admirers but old fans will love them more for it.

    Fantastic album.... Suede rules. This is a very different suede album with great tunes. Although all the bad criticism, this album is brilliant,

    Give it a few spins before it sets in. "Lonely Girls" has a beautiful set of lyrics. "Lost in TV" is the best sing-along song of the year, Give it a few spins before it sets in. "Lonely Girls" has a beautiful set of lyrics. "Lost in TV" is the best sing-along song of the year, and the rest of the album is terribly catchy. Makes up for Head Music, even though that album was better than most of the trash that came out that year anyway. Play in the US, damnit! Full Review »
