  • Summary: The Tears' debut album reunites Suede's Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler for the first time in over a decade.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 14 out of 17
  2. Negative: 0 out of 17
  1. Here Come the Tears is what Coming Up would have been if Butler had stuck around: it's cinematic and bright, lush and passionate, halfway between the incessantly catchy pop that wound up on Coming Up and the sighing romanticism and larger-than-life sweep of Dog Man Star.
  2. 84
    The duo has not lost their touch for writing memorable tunes. [#16, p.92]
  3. It is everything one would have expected Suede to become after over a decade. [#10, p.114]
  4. This isn't that far from the records Suede made without their errant guitarist. However, Anderson's familiar Bowie affectations sound all the more affecting with Butler chiming away.
  5. There's nothing as great as "New Generation", "She's Not Dead", or "The 2 of Us" but there doesn't have to be, either, because the Tears have enough natural dynamism of their own to stand alone.
  6. 70
    They have clearly been rejuvenated by this beguiling collaboration, producing their best work for years. [Jul 2005, p.110]
  7. Butler's attempts at the old guitar dramatics are hopelessly overwrought. [Jul 2005, p.115]
