The Tears - Here Come The Tears (2005) Retail CD
The title might suit the aura of faltering romanticism but Here Comes The Tears will offer nothing but a happy ending for Suede disciples who once mourned the avoidable loss of a glorious future. Unarguably one of British rock music's most eminent severed alliances, low-rent hedonist Brett Anderson and recalcitrant guitar deity Bernard Butler permanently parted company during the fractious recording sessions for 1994's smouldering masterpiece Dog Man Star. Like Strummer and Jones, Lennon and McCartney and Morrissey and Marr, the Anderson Butler union belongs to a distinguished line of brilliantmore… but volatile songwriting partnerships acrimoniously (and often prematurely) ripped apart under exacting circumstances. Finally, the estranged pair conclude their dignified silence and pick up the torch where the aspirational Dog Man Star adjourned a generation ago. Naturally, Here Comes The Tears - while not attempting to atone for any might-have-beens - sounds instinctively like the best record Suede or the solo Bernard Butler never made and duly rewards by attaining some kind of ego-balancing equilibrium between the chemical rush of Anderson's decadent glam pop expression ("Lovers", "Refugees") and Butler's more stately and wide-angle production landscapes. Modesty being a virtue, it's interesting to contrast the elephantine brass bombast of Dog Man Star's (admittedly wonderful) finale "Still Life" with the manner in which "A Love As Strong As Death" asserts its grandiosity with a reticent mulling of harp, piano and Hawaiian guitar. There's simply too much genius here to mention but "Beautiful Pain" (cold turkey agony with a truly euphoric pop chorus) and the refracting, rain-soaked atmospherics of "The Asylum" simply beg acquaintance. A stunning comeback. --Kevin Maidment
