Head Music features the salacious 'Can't Get Enough' which rocks like a cross between "Ballroom Blitz"-era Sweet and mid-1960s Pink Floyd. The forlorn ballad 'Down' recalls pre-glitter Elton John and ZIGGY STARDUST-era David Bowie. Singer Brett Anderson sings a bit like a subdued yet seductive Bono, and the Suede mix trippy-ness, street-rat-wannabetrashy-ness, catchy tunes and crunchy yet restrained rockin' guitars for a distinctive, hedonistic listen. Fans of old and "new" psychedelia should check out this Suede release. Nude Records. 2006.

Getting inside Suede's head

"Terribly reviewed by most fans, I'm rather fond of this foray into synth pop by Suede. Sure, it's not Dog Man Star but anyone who has listened to their third CD, Coming Up, had to know something like Head Music was on the horizon. The first three songs, "Electricity," "Savior faire," and "Can't Get Enough" start the CD with a kind of intensity and sexiness that introduce you to the rest of the songs. They are fun songs that get you in the mood for what follows. The next two "Everything will flow" and "Down" are heartbreakingly beautiful and bear repeated hearings. The title song is a rare tongue in cheek piece as is the next song "Elephant Man." The last third of the CD slows things down and ends on a very mellow tone. I'm not sure why this was so savaged in Suede fandom. It is a solid CD with lots of high points, a lot of fun, and moving lyrics. If it makes you want to get up and dance, if it makes you smile in recognition of a shared emotion . . . . then I say it works!"
