Suede - Anderson Regrets Final Suede Album

SUEDE rocker BRETT ANDERSON has blasted the band's final album as "weak" - and he wishes they had split up before they recorded it.
The Britpop pioneers disbanded in 2003, a year after the release of their swansong album A New Morning, but reformed for a series of comeback gigs this year (10).
Their final record was a commercial flop and received a slew of negative reviews, and now singer Anderson has added his criticism of the album, insisting he regrets ever recording it.
He tells German music blog Monarchie & Alltag, "I don't like it. With all due respect to people who liked it back at the time, it's the weakest Suede record and to be pretty frank, I regret making it. It would have been much better for Suede if we had split up before making A New Morning.
"But that's the benefit of hindsight. It's not as easy not to make c**p decisions when you are in the heat of the moment. It's got some good moments... Unfortunately we were quite confused at the time and we didn't know which songs the good songs were and which (were) the bad... I'm willing to hold my hands up and say 'It's not the best Suede album!'"
