Well. They are back. David Bowie might be dead but Suede are still alive right? So everything is ok. This one follows on fairly swiftly from their successful 'comeback' LP 'Night Thoughts' and shares the line up with their classic 'Coming Up' record. Expect a lot of wrought songs about being outsiders in suburbia and wandering around the city feeling a bit isolated.

6/10 Clinton Staff review, 26 September 2018

What the hell is this? 

I've never heard anything as pompous as the first track 'As One' a ridiculously frilly be-choired, be orchestrated slab of utter nonsense that seems to serve as a moat to the album allowing you past to enjoy any charms that can be found within. Be patient though because 'Wastelands' is better  - well at least it sounds like Suede - so much so in fact that it seems to have been made out of a Suede lyrical and music random generator. Not bad at all though but you are going to have to be a big fan of Brett Anderson's nasal vocals to enjoy this. He really is in dramatic flow here  - sitting way on top of the mix  - lace hankerchief to forehead - a troubled poet foghorning his missives and we should be grateful right? 

He tries spoken word on 'Roadkill' and the results are laughable but this is certainly a grandiose Suede album in the manner of Dog Man Star so let's give them some kudos for not rolling out another Suede-by-numbers effort like Night Thoughts.  Whereas their previous missive could be enjoyed by anyway with half an interest in suede, for the Blue Hour you'll need to be a massive fan of Suede and particularly Anderson and his dramatic follies. He seems to be obsessed by stuff that happens on the ground and things that die in nature and stuff. He over emotes at every opportunity and the band seem tiny in  comparison to his big booming voice. 

Suede seem to have made some kind of concept album  here. It goes on for about three days but if you like their dramatic windswept ballad-y side then there's enough here to keep you going indefinitely.
