    Unlike Suede's previous comp The Singles, 2010's The Best of Suede doesn't purport to include all the band's A-sides. Instead, it's a good, old-fashioned "best of," a cherrypicking of the group's greatest cuts conducted by Brett Anderson himself. Unlike some artists, Anderson shows a keen ear for the band's very best, selecting the same singles, B-sides, and album tracks their devotees would, downplaying the band's slow fade in favor of their first three albums and accompanying singles. The Best of Suede doesn't follow a strict chronological sequence -- occasionally tunes from the same album are grouped together, as when a clutch of Dog Man Star epics close the 35-track set -- but Anderson manages to give this double-disc set an elegant flow that showcases Suede in all their tragic romantic glory. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

    Uncut (magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]s well as the adolescent frenzy, there was a yearning quality in Butler's playing that stirred Anderson to the band's highpoint, 'The Wild Ones'..."
