Well for me nothing Brett has done post-Suede has come close so I'd be delighted if the band continued.

Personally I love ANM but I know I'm in the minority. I think there were very specific reasons why it's considered a failure creatively and commercially, particularly expensive and lengthy search for the right producer. I think Attitude and the other songs that came out at the time of Singles were a step back in the right direction towards the kind of Suede record fans would accept and I think it's a bit unfair to assume that the band haven't got another album in them on the basis of ANM. I know a lot people think things went downhill with Head Music but again there's other reasons why that turned out how it did.

I guess my perspective is skewed slightly by being Coming Up era fan rather than a DMS one - I would never want another DMS from the CU line-up.

Usual disclaimer - this is just my opinion, I don't expect that many people will agree so please don't have a go at me if you don't, etc (although usually that sort of thing's not needed here).

Gareth.

I won't want a new DMS either... Trashy or Head Music-ish would be fine for me! a great pop-album to show they still have the glamour, the great moments, the excellent songwriting and the good taste!

to make it clear, I do not want another DMS... even if i discovered suede during the DMS tour, I feel myself more like a CU fan... and ANM has got a lot of meaning for me, so I love it... you are not alone, Gareth!

Don't worry gareth - we nwouldn't have a go at you - you know this isn't the place that can not be named!!!!!

I'm CU era and as I said before there's lots of ANM that I like and and several songs that are up there as my favourites - and HM is an album that for a period has come become a favourite....

I guess it is down to the individual - of course if I heard that they were making a new album i'd be the first to get excited!!!! Whatever they do i'll follow with interest - as a band or individuals...!!!

Same same... And I'm sure I'll end up with six or more copies of their new album, no matter whether it's any good.

Unique offer: get 4 copies of ANM, only pay 3. PM for more info. :wink:
