Suede is a recent new love for me, and it is either because I'm becoming older, and therefore my ears are opening up, or I have bad taste. I'll let my readers debate on that, but when I first heard Suede in the 1990s, I found them to be pretentious and too much of an imitation of various glam bands, and also, I suspected any group that was so good looking. In other words, I criticize Suede for being too surface-like, when in fact my attitude toward them was precisely the same disease. My thoughts on them were equally surface-like. It was a happenstance series of moments when I purchased their third album "Coming Up," and reading Brett Anderson, their singers' moving memoir "Coal Black Mornings" at the same time. Being a completist, I also purchase the three-LP vinyl discs compilation of their b-sides "Sci-Fi Lullabies." First of all, the opening song to this compilation "My Insatiable One" is classic. Why it is not on their first album is a mystery to me. Which comes to the fact, that all the b-sides are almost better than the final chosen songs for the first "Suede" album. B-sides, by their nature, are usually throw-away songs, or little experiments on the tail end of a recording session. Clearly Suede see their b-sides as important recordings. A three album disc set seems obsessive, but "Sci-Fi Lullabies" is a very much release by these London artists. For the music historian, Suede had two parts. The first part is the Bernard Butler years, which didn't last long, but his importance is acutely felt in the first two albums, as well as a large handful of songs here. Butler is not only the co-writer of the early Suede songs, along with Anderson, but also a magnificent guitarist. He's a combination of Johnny Marr and Mick Ronson, and he serves Suede in the same manner as those two fantastic guitarists and arrangers. When Butler left or got thrown out of Suede, one would think that's it. Brett and company found another guitarist and co-writer, and an additional guitarist/keyboard player and they became even more popular. What Butler brought to Suede is an orchestrated guitar sound that was textured and melodic, with a noisy tinge as well. This guy is a musician's musician. There is a nerdy, obsessive side to his playing that is very aggressive, but equally aware that he's part of the foursome (at the time). Anderson struck me as a lyricist who very much admires Bowie and JG Ballard. With respect to Bowie, his "Man Who Sold The World" which strikes me as the framework for Suede, but I'm also amused and fascinated that Brett Anderson was listening to Robert Wyatt's "Rock Bottom" at the time of recording their first album. Anderson is an 'observation' writer. He has a good ear and language in describing a landscape in the U.K. that was lower class, yet had some vision of a future that is part science fiction, but based on the economic world of failure and misery. Its songs are about youth, but not as bright young things, but more like the victims of their class and economic world. It's romantic because the characters in the songs have no other choice. It's either that or pure misery, which even with its romantic motif, is still a miserable existence. Suede is the poets and voice for this underclass.Once Butler left, he was replaced by Richard Oakes, who much admires the previous guitarist's work in Suede. And on top of that, he is an excellent songwriter. Him and Neil Codling, who happens to be the cousin to their drummer Simon Gilbert, is also a strong melodist. Mat Osman is also a very melodic bassist, and he adds a lot to their sound. The latter Suede is punchier and perhaps focused in their music. There is not a significant difference between the two versions of the band, due I suspect to the vision of Anderson. There is a Jacques Brel approach to the seedy world that he shares with the legend, and he takes on that role very well. "Killing of a Flash Boy" and "Europe Is Our Playground" are such songs that are subjective, but has a journalistic skill in telling the narrative. Suede is worth the effort to drop my objections and accept them for what they are: an outstanding band of great worth.
Make no mistake, this reissue is better sounding than all of the other Demon reissues. It still sounds digital but has greater depth and is the only reissue I ended up keeping. I thought the other reissues, particularly Dog Man Star, were pretty bad sounding.
A new morning sounds great. Absolutely nothing to complain about.
My problem with this release is that Demon crammed three heavy 180 gram records into a just slightly fatter than normal sleeve. When records were normal weight (before the somewhat silly arms race of 180 or 200 gram records), it was okay to put two records into one sleeve. But with 180 gram, you really need a gatefold sleeve for 2 records or a trifold sleeve for three records. I know a trifold can be something of a hassle (I'm thinking of my copies of the recent issue The Who Live at Leeds and of the 2017 RSD release of David Bowie Cracked Actor), but in my opinion it is a better option than what Demon did with this compilation.
It sounds like that the source of the records is digital. It just doesn't sound very well in my opinion. There's hardly or minor difference in sound quality between the CD of LP. I only have that feeling when the vinyl is cut from a digital source. So it seems I wasted my time and money.
Brick my own
Actually.... I change my opinion! After a good clean the album sounds much better than the CD...btw make it mid 90's. Since mid 90's most music is recorded digitally sadly...

Dude, virtually every record has been cut from digital since the mid-1980s
Never thought I'd see a vinyl release of this - and the fact it has all the original artwork (from the source, rather than scanned and reprinted like, say, the recent Madonna reissues) makes it even more of a treat.When I was in my early teens, vinyl pressings were so scarce it was difficult or even impossible to track them down, and half the music I liked wouldn't get an LP release at all. It's gratifying, then, to see so many of my favourite albums popping into my local record shop on vinyl, some for the first time - Bowie's Earthling, The Field's ...Sublime, Morrissey's Vauxhall and I, and now this cracker. Of course I enjoy the memories attached to building my collection over the past couple of decades, but comparing the situation now with the pitiful number of LPs in print then I can't help but feel a bit like I'm dreaming.
I'm in Ireland. In the mid-90s the indie shops tended to shift new LPs fairly quickly - if you weren't on the ball in the first couple of weeks you'd miss out. However my local Virgin Megastore would have unsold copies of LPs there for months - it generally got at least one copy of EVERYTHING. The Auteurs' After Murder Park - four copies came in. I bought one on release day, the other three remainded unsold for months, eventually reduced to £1.99 so I bought another. The demand for mid-90s vinyl seems much greater now than at the time. Back then I felt I was in a tiny minority still buying new LPs.
