Bloodsports doesn't come close to the quality of the debut, Dog Man Star or the Stay Together EP. But holy shit, it's Suede, so it's still better than most releases.
I actually think it's better than A New Morning, which was good, but a bit underwhelming. I think Bloodsports is as good as the often underrated Coming Up.
I first heard Suede on a family trip to England in 1993. I picked up the debut immediately. Yet in twenty years I still haven't managed to see them. One of my life's great musical regrets.
Their return gives me hope. But it hasn't happened yet.

There are a few current labels I'll pretty much buy releases on based only on the description. Triple B is one such label. I'm pretty sure I only grabbed this because it said "Richmond hardcore." Sometimes that's all it takes.
I'm not one to hit up Bandcamp or sample things before buying. The majority of my music buying life has been based on picking stuff up that looks interesting, or I heard about, or on a certain label, etc. Granted that got fairly pricey with imports. But it didn't stop me.
I'm glad I picked this up. Solid sound trending towards the "harder" end of things and worth checking out.
