My favorite tune: For the Strangers

If all comeback-bands have to do is rehashing their own materials, make new songs that retrace their old songs, then at least Suede has done it right. ‘It Starts and Ends With You’ is a subdued echo of  ‘Beautiful Ones’, ‘For the Strangers’ is a deadpan reincarnation of ‘The Chemistry Between Us’, and overall Bloodsports essentially is their brand new Coming Up: a statement to the world that the band has been reborn, again. Only this time, with fewer potential hit songs.

My Rating: 7/10
