Suede (1993)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Suede; Genre: Rock

Sashaying in on a high wire of hype, Suede plunder the styles of their pop-fop forebears (Marc Bolan, Bowie, Morrissey) and rock your last nerve like a fabulously inappropriate prom date. On Suede, vocalist Brett Anderson and guitarist Bernard Butler exude ''anthems'' about whatever, really, from bisexual lovesickness (''The Drowners'') to silly-goose masochism (''Animal Nitrate''). B+
