A New Morning is considered The London Suede album best forgotten. Singer Brett Anderson has said as much in more than one interview. Several songs ("Obsessions" is probably the most egregious example) sound like unenthusiastic rewrites of past hits. But despite its deficiencies, the album contains a decent dose of the typical London Suede magic. Even when the band misfires, their knack for glorious hooks, as well as Anderson's perverse cry, remain powerful qualities. Chances are you won't dig A New Morning from beginning to end, but you will find some touching moments to cling to.
